    Mum sold her property so I had to get my cars and bring them home.

    First the MK1.

    Safely home.

    Then the Cupra (doner car). Took 3 hours of wrangling to get it on the trailer.

    Lots of hassles getting a car with no suspension on a trailer.

    I suppose now the MK1 is home I have no excuse not to get it back on the road.

    The plan is (there's always a plan) to fit the MK2 GTi motor first (a real one, not the pissweak Aus version) and get it registered. Eventually the ABF 16v will go in.

    Is the KR still in it?

    Sold the damaged KR to Brian (GTI Imports) ages ago. The ABF from the Cupra will eventually find its way into the MK1 but for now I have a sweet 1.8 from Alex G's much modded MK2.

    Getting a car that hasn't been rego'd for 10 years back on the streets will be much easier with the 1.8. Plus the 1.8 isn't standard, previous owner of the motor said his MK2 was the fastest na 4 cylinder he'd driven.
