    93 Mk1 Cabriolet

    Probably about time I put my new baby up here...

    But, not without a little back story...
    Here is my old baby...


    She was a great girl, and for the 4 or so years I had her, she was wonderful.
    And then, I did the unthinkable, and accepted a deal that would see her leave my life.

    Her replacement lasted a whole 3 months before I realised that I’d made my worst car decision ever...
    So, I started looking for a replacement, and settled on an ‘08 Eos.
    Whilst she is an absolutely amazing car, with plenty of character and soul, she isn’t in the same league as my old Mk1.


    Fast forward another 3 years or so, and what do you know, my old girl if up for sale...
    Turns out she was a victim of the massive Canberra hail storms.
    I was lucky enough to speak with the gentleman I sold her too, she had been a wonderful car for him too.
    She passed from his hands through the insurance car sales, and ended up in Sydney.
    Unfortunately, as she was covered in dents, and With the roof needing replacement, I could not justify the high cost they were asking for her.

    Saddened by this, my wife suggested looking for another car...
    Strangely enough, there was another here in Canberra that was in need of a little TLC.
    So, we made the call, and added her to our family...

    Found a little more rust than I’d like today...
    But, on the plus side, the front brakes are nice and “new” now...

    Thankfully the other side was much better, but still bad enough to need fixing.
    Cleaned all the seam sealer from this side to check for rust, and man was that a mission...
