1989 MKII 8V, damn near bog standard, a few electrical mods; iPod dock, homemade water temp gauge.

Almost all the same colour, small bumpers ( I prefer them ), creaky drivers seat.

It's about time I did some serious work on it. I think 2.0 16V, bigger brakes etc, etc...

I have a big bumpered Mk2 "GT" Golf, origially a RV engined auto from Japan and factory labelled as a "GT".
It has the GTI interior as standard, no sunroof but aircon.
Came with the 15" BBS alloys, quad headlight grille, and smoked rear taillight lenses.
It now sports a 2.0l 16v with K-motronic injection, 256mm front brake set up, rear discs, is lowered 40mm with Eibach springs, and of course has a 5 speed close ratio box.

My venerable old valver, enjoying country life being thrashed around the tight and twisties.

Plans: change out the current AON gearbox (8v) for a close ratio FD out of a MK1 / Scirocco.

To cage or not to cage? Still haven't made up my mind which car to transform into the hillclimber, this one, the MK1 or the Scirocco. All talk, no action, blame the farm / baby / wife / weather / building projects / life.

Great to be able to upload at last!

Yay, the shocks and springs have arrived from TM Tuning, and are on the car, so at last I can post some up to date pictures in here. Very happy with the lowering amount, and the car now goes round corners like a gocart.
