Im 29, bought my first 306 1.4xl from my mum for £1500 when I was 17 and learning to drive
Then a few years later (about 19/20) bought an s16 with 71000 on the clocks for £1500- gti's where going for too much around that time so out of my price range at 19. Had the s16 up till May 2014 (110k on clock) when someone smashed into the front drivers side and sadly wrote it off
I had spent 1000's on this car over the years and kept every receipt for it, it had a full respray the year before aswell.
I was looking to go for something else after the crash like a mondeo St220 or bmw 330 but there is something in me that
the 306...... So I decided to get a Y reg gti down the road from me as a run around for £700. I had to have the cambelt and a few other bits done to it (suspension bits) and still have it now after spending about £1500 on it in a year
But then a month or so ago i saw a 97 phase 1 in silver for sale on here that caught my eye straight away so I had to have it (£2100) I have a thing for the phase 1 and a fair bit of work has gone into this one so couldn't let it go. I was looking at going down the supercharged route as there was a few up for sale over the year at good prices. Ive just seen another phase 1 on eBay with throttle bodies in Diablo looking mint and if I had the money I'd grab it up straight away.
I've been on this forum since 2004 and have learned a lot of right and wrongs, do's and dont's. If it wasn't for this forum I don't think I'd be into these cars like I am. Shame I never get to see any of you in the flesh.
Oh and I work for a building company doing anything and everything ( jack of all, master of none
