Wheres My Old MK2 GTI Golf??
« on: October 06, 2021, 08:52:37 pm »
Hi Everyone!


I used to work for Bill Tapper European, now known as Tristram European in Glenfield and I loved VW Golfs!!

Question is I've lost all the photos of my old 1987 MK2 GOLF GTI 3 door in white that I sold back in the late 2000's in Albany, Auckland.

It was a English Import and had VR6 hubs and wheels and the aftermarket 2 headlight black grille, unfortunately I've forgotten the number plate.. pretty sure it was TN....

If anyone has a photo of it from the late 2000's it will be truly appreciated!!!!  :)

Thatís a pretty good thread idea, Iím unsure if there is already one of these going for your old car, but here are some other threads that you might find useful;

Some people might know my old Ď89 GTI 16V, but Iíd also like to know what happened to that.  8)

RM1685 is currently in my possession. Done a little work on it over the past four years. She's going well, warranted, registered and gets driven as much as a can! Been meaning to post some pictures of the progress..
