    Back in the thick of it - another Golf in the family.

    After many years of "sensible" family cars, I got bitten by the old Golf bug again after helping my son buy a Mk5 TDI as his first set of wheels.

    So I went on the hunt for a semi decent MK2 GTI, and after many month searching, I snapped one up almost fully restored. New paintwork, newly rebuilt engine with a 2ltr block and the 1.8 head tricked up a bit. Interior is mostly original with new carpets and a reskinned dash. Car was originally sold in NSW in 1991, so has Australian compliance plates.

    Spent the last 3 months getting it ready for roadworthy with some final bits and bobs resolved. Now on Club plates

    All in all a fun ride and great to be driving an old skool Golf once again!
