Golf cab looks quite nice, it really could do with some proper tyres on it though!
Agrred. I'm normally not a fan, but it looks like a nice summer cruiser.

Crying out for this treatment as a track car:

W00DY you st! I promised myself I'd buy the next good condition GT I saw, I took a look around fleabay the other day and saw nothing so thought myself safe, now you bring this up! Just after I admitted to the company that manages my rental house that they'd paid me twice this month! I could have pocketed that and got this wink

Really like this one. Am I mad to think it's a good idea to sell my C30 T5 and use this as a daily. It'll fit the dogs in better than the Volvo but reliability issues, especially over winter concern me. Also can I live with the 1.2 over a 2.5 turbo (I do have a boosted 5 for fun though).

I have always liked Bajas. Would prefer it wasn't matt black and I would have to lift it back up a bit.

I'd be curious what that car would be like to insure for someone under 20. Would be pretty cool young'un transport.

A fair chunk cheaper than a Corsa. At 17 I was running a slammed Beetle, early body panels, Golf GTI seats and a 'big bore' 1700cc motor. And it was nigh on half the cost of my friends insurance on 106's etc

The only thing legal on that is the tread on the tyres - love it.

Seen a lot of this on Fast and Loud and maybe its an age thing but I just don't get it.

I wouldn't want to drive it or own it, but I'd enjoy looking at it. It's like an old jallopy - as simple as it needs to be. There's nothing there you don't need (including paint smile).

I have seen them on Fast and loud virtually use the body ontop of a new chassis and with a huge Engine.
Its part of a cultre I dont get.

Footman James used to insure my bugs at proper bargain prices even with a big mod list. You wouldn't want to crash it which probably helps!
