I got into VW's by luck if anything.

When I was 17 most people were interested in getting either a Nova, Corsa or Saxo as a first car. I will admit that I really wanted a Saxo at one point, that was back in 2004 before they became a chav's favourite .. at least that's what I like to think anyway Laughing

One of the lads that was in 6th form with me bought a 1.0 MK4 Polo and did a few subtle mods to it - wheels, lowered, twin exhaust. After I saw it I made my mind up that I wanted a MK4 Polo.

So far I've had:

MK4 Polo 1.4 16V x 2 (First one only lasted a month before it got rear ended and written off Crying or Very sad )
MK5 Polo Gti
MK4 Golf R32

The MK4 R32 was a car I'd always wanted since I saw one for the first time, and I was really chuffed when I got one last year Very Happy

I am just waiting for Gwyndaf to come on;

"Well i first got into my Volkswagens when me and me mate Adolf came up for the original design for the beetle, I have had 633 Volkwagens to date starting with the first mk1 golf ever to roll off the production line." "I have now reduced my historic collection of VW's down to 5 and have had the pleasure to own one of the best G60's evermade"

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I was a bit of a late comer to VW's too, Was on the look out for a Tdi Passat when I saw the blue one up for sale and had to have it lol!
Always been into modified cars, dont think I've ever had a standard one for more than a week or so. Missing having a quick car at the moment - its an itch I need to scratch again soon !

My list

Mini 1000, Stripped it down but never finished rebuilding - Discovered the joys of Drink + Women and got distracted !
Citroen AX GT - Quick little cars in there day, kept up with 205 1.6 Gti's. It was ready for scrap after doing 26k in the year I had it !
Renault 5 GT Turbo - Where it all started getting silly ! Ended up with 200+Bhp, Redline cover car, SFS Demo car etc etc.
Cavalier 4x4 Turbo - Actually bought it to tow the R5 to shows !! Nice car, Fmic, Engine work 240Bhp
Celica GT4 (st205) - Cracking car, Handled well 240Bhp as standard - Thirsty tho !
306 D-Turbo - As a reaction to spending so much on fuel in the GT4, !8's Decked. HATED IT !
Toyota MR2 GT16i - It was cheap ! Still ended up lowered on 18's, Carbon spoiler etc.
Renault 5 GT Turbo (No.2) - Didnt learn so did it again, full respray in Lilac, Ronal Turbo's, stripped caged etc. Only 180Bhp but was used for trackdays
Mk1 Golf - 1.1. Was just bought as a daily beater so I could work on the 5, Started the VW Love !!
BMW 320Ci - Fully specced, leather, Harmon Kardon. Lovely 6 Cyl sound but too slow
Audi TT 225 - Nice car, Black, Had it for 3 months, Fitted Forge 007DV and the Mrs Wrote it off the next week !!! Crying or Very sad (Not her fault tho)
Celica 190VVTi T-Sport - Quick but didnt like all that silly revving !
Passat 1.8T Sport Wagon - Featured in Golf+, I bought it made it my own. Won Best booted at Detailed show. Now slowly being driven into the ground as my daily hack !!
Mk1 Golf (No.2) - Wasn't finished with the Mk1 so I bought another - Looks like its ready for the scrap yard at the moment. WIP !

Once I get a few debts sorted out Hopefully something a bit quicker will be on the drive !!

'Cause my dad's mechanic and one of his best mates was selling it and said if anything goes wrong with it he'd give me mates rates Smile

But I was into 'Dubs before that, probably since Mim had the two Mk1 cabs and I realised they were massively pimp.

My whole family drive 'dubs too, My dads only had caravelles or Transporters for the past 10-15 years, and my Mum's had two Mk4 Golfs (one of which is now my sisters) and my sister's first car was a mk4 Polo 16v which she wrote off (before I figured out how much I could have sold he bumpers for!)
