Hello Everyone,

Thank you for allowing me to join your forum. I look forward to exchanging information, losses and wins as we all work on our projects.

I grew up in South America where Volkswagen are cheap and cheerful as they were made in Brazil. I have loved VWs for most of my life (went through a Toyota phase) and always had a healthy like for cars. Now in my forties my wife convinced me to get a project car like I always wanted. I opted to get something cheap so that I could pull it apart and learn as I go.

My budget was $500 so I took to CarSales where I found my 2001, 6N2 Polo. I bought it with a snapped timing belt just over a year ago. Unfortunately I have not been able to make the time to work on it but I am now getting back on track and look forward to learning a lot, hopefully as cheaply as possible.

Anyway, thank you for reading my essay of an introduction. See you around!
