Jack's gotta girlfriend!!!!!

Post by Mrs Olive on Mon Mar 16, 2009 2:09 pm

Well everyone, we'd like you to say a big hello to our new girl, Jill!!!!!   She's a 1991 H reg mk2 Jetta 1.6 GX in Silver. She's only done 51,000 miles with a full VW service history and we got her for the bargain price of £89.50!!!!!!!    Shocked

She's runs and sound very sweet but unfortunately doesn't drive at the moment due to an automatic gearbox fault. Once we've replaced the gearbox with Jack's old manual one, she should hopefully be up and running. She needs a few touch up's doing and a new rocker gasket but other than that she's mint        bounce  bounce  cheers

great find there,

nice one,

probably worth advertising the auto box as "repairable" after you convert to manual, as they are quite rare,

Well, It's now looking like it's not just going to be a replacement gearbox and rocker cover gasket that we're gonna need for this old girl. We could be looking at a new window too cos it might need breaking. A certain someone has only gone and lost the only key for her after taking it to work with him!    affraid  affraid  Rolling Eyes   Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad

Hopefully the key problem should be sorted by tomorrow. An auto locksmith is coming to get into Jill for us and apparently can cut us a spare key. All at the cost of £80 though    Mad  Mad
