Good grief...you'd have thought they would at least try & clean it up a bit.

I see he has dropped the price to just under £100
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-GOLF-MK1- ... 0011.m1850
I suspect the price is to reflect the original VW modification to the dreaded Pin A8 problem !
Part number 171971761B, which is obsolete and unobtainable new.

The contents of my scrap pile in the garage must be worth a fortune...

Is that rare original VAG rust?

:-o

Here we go for another one... Is the GTII not a carb car? They say "fuel injector braided hoses on fuel mass meter". No pictures of the engine or damage to front panel, guess they can't get the bonnet open?
The brakes don't seem to work either?

MFA full working.... Don't they mean the clock works?

Is £1250 to much for a crashed car?

Here is anther great line from the ad for the crashed Mk2 Scirocco above.

“HE'S AS STRAIGHT AS A ARROW.”

Well it may of been once but now the front is caved in, the passengers wing is pushed back as it no longer lines up with the door...

I feel bad for that poor GTII.

Goodness knows what other work needs doing to it.

Or how about 4 screw for the arm rest £7.10 delivered.... VW did not use special screws.....
