Is Mike on the forum?

No I don't think so. Isn't that the guy I sold my Mk1 too? Jeremy will know.

Head is a dead one that used to live locally:

Yea I think so. It sat out at haumoana for years which didnt help with the rust. There was receipts in it for a $4k engine rebuild

That one was rusty every where. I started stripping it, saw how much rust there was and decided to sell it

Also lets not forget there are two models, Mk1 and Mk1.5 (or what ever you call it), like Mk1 Golfs.

It's just a facelift, key points changed are single wiper, turn signals, an then it's just cosmetic and engine options. Interesting that half the cars are pre facelift and half are post. The palmy car is pre facelift.

Pre or post? I thought that the plastic bumpers came on the later cars?
