Just thought I'd share this with you guys... Blast from the past.

This was me squaring about my dad's car 18 years ago... Even then - I had a feeling that he'd made the right choice in getting a 1.8 16V GTi Jetta. I think I'm inspecting it;

Blast from the Past... DSC08062

2 years later when I was 3 1/2, I was playing "Petrol garages" outside, and somehow had managed to unscrew the Jetta's petrol cap... And filled the car with water using the hose pipe.. playing petrol pumps!...

...Basically - the car was never the same again, the injectors might have seized? I don't think my dad's managed to love me ever since.

Embarassed

This is how our driveway looked 12 years ago... Mk2 1.8 Golf "Tour" and a 2.0L Passat CL or GL. Yeah baby, me and my bro take a pose infront of the Passat before dad had to get rid of it a month later with another addition to the family on the way.

Reg is N536 WNF - dunno if this rings any bells to anyone on here?
