its about time for a pic update

VWNW at Tatton Park was a while ago, but it was one of the best shows I went to all year. Ive never been before so was gobsmacked at the shear quantity of Dubs of all shapes, sizes and ages! Definately a date for next year! There was even a couple who approached me that used to have a Special too and had owned it for 12 years I think. There was really nice enthusiastic people all over the show, and pretty good weather too

The S&S class I was in was basically everything that wasnt a Mk1 or Mk2 Golf GTI, so a right mixed bag. The Golf Mk1 Driver in the background won the class BTW

It wasnt until ED38 that I got to get the Jetta onto another showground, and it was a great chance to catch up with a few people I hadnt seen in a while

Its also had a new genuine rear silencer fitted and thats pretty much it at the mo as ive been rebuilding a RE1900 16v engine with Robs help, so the valver can get to CGTI's trackday at Bedford

Im also going to Festival at Pod this sunday so fingers crossed for nice weather!

its been a team effort really. Thats what i like about Golf+ - its a more realistic mag and 3 of the main cars are on the front cover, and another is on the previous months issue advert page, so everyone gets a bit of extra coverage

Sarah did the car pround!
well chuffed

Ill sort some out for you, although that was the best

I was having a bit of a spring clean when i managed to find the documents i misplaced many moons ago.........
The service history confirms that the registration was changed at a later date (still dont know when but Ive found a receipt dated 1993 that has the GGT registration). It was originally sold from Colindale Service Station on Edgeware Road in London

Heres a couple of pics from Ultimate Dubs. The week before Id driven it to Bradford and back from Derby so it was ditched, but several hours of cleaning later and it looked good enough

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Id also bought an old museum stand from ebay and had it painted to match the car. I know its stood on a chopping board, but thats as far as I got with it for now

If anyone took any good pics, then please post them up as im a pisspoor photographer!

I really enjoyed the show and the standard of cars blew me away yet again

On another note, I did meet a chap from the Rocco club who remembers these cars being whoired about at shopping centers etc, and remembers that they were only advertised as 50 being made. I know that number is what is already beleived, but Id never seen it in print and neither had anyone else that could tell me for sure. Id only ever seen the part in the Car magazine article that referred to the first batch of 20.

It was quite odd being parked where we were because it felt that we were on the fringe of the show and there just wasnt enough cars in that hall. Im not complaining mind you, as I take it as a compliment to even have got the car in the halls in the first place

Jonney and Emily were the couple who brought the Pearl Grey 8v that was parked next to me. A really nice couple too! Loved the car as well

Ive finally received my cars history from the DVLA today and theres been a bit of a surprise!

09/08/86 It was first registered to a chap in Hounslow, London who bought it from Colindale Service Station, London and originally registered as C990 WLT.
31/05/88 It was then sold to a pharmacy in Wandsworth, London called Cosmolynn Ltd
16/06/88 It is then sold on to the next owner and ended up in Pinner, Middlesex
25/07/89 the same owner puts in on a private plate 696 EYU and it is relocated to Bolton
04/10/91 and it is onto the next owner and back in London in Streatham
01/10/92 and the private plate is replaced with C626 GGT . Its anyones guess if this was chosen for the GT part of the resistration or just a lucky coincidence
30/10/92 and its off to Stevenage, Hertfordshire and another new owner
20/07/95 and its sold to the next new owner, also in Stevenage
18/09/98 and its sold to the next owner in Stevenage who then moves at some point to near Bedford
01/08/09 and its mine- ALL MINE

i guess the time has come when Ive realised that I will need to sell this at some point. Ive spent a small fortune on this, and I know Ill lose money, but it is the best one I know of and comes with a complete spare bodykit and a few other things too. PM me with serious offers

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Out right now and its the magazine I always wanted the car featured in. There are a few exclusive pics too of the GT Specials at GTi Engineering, Silverstone taken at the time.
