My mk1 golf that originally started out as a driver now running a 1.4 16v on carbs, smooth bay, bodydropped front end and lots of chrome. I got given it in 2005 as a bog standard car, all the work has been carried out by me over the years and one day I aim to 'finish it' although I know this won't happen as Im always chopping and changing bits. This ones a keeper.
