Re: Red Mk1 16v

I've a price in mind for it which I don't think is too unachievable, all depends on the level of project you are looking for... Ping me a pm if you like, can chat that way,
Gary, drop a pm my way buddy,

Re: Who's on the road (or could be), who is Not?

Unsurprisingly, mine is in no closer condition than last post! Under its cover on the drive,

Re: Phase 2 BX16V Black - Barn Find

(the handle that is) MagiK, you can't really expect a quiet forum for a car that is an acquired taste with very little nimbers left to be a thriving community, 10 years ago it certainly was, I'm not sure...
