Hi all,

Found this site on ClubGTI and thought as i'm a local boy (Hemel Hempstead) i should register and say hello!

Recently bought a MK2 GTI 16v (owned MK2's for the best part of 6 years).

Here is a pic of the old girl -


Wouldn't mind attending some local meets. Itís nice to meet other likeminded people that understand pouring money into the bottomless pit that is an old VW Very Happy

Cheers guys.

More doors - pah! (the way I look at it , fewer doors mean less to go wrong. thatís in fact my philosophy for the whole car ;-)

The car is currently undergoing some TLC as I've just done the head gasket, but still need to set the mixtures, 2x CV boots, 1x bull joint, overhaul gear linkage and convert back to 4 lamp grill. So a few bits to keep me busy.

Hi Fitzy,

Thanks for the welcome. It' had a full re-spray so the bodywork is nice. Cool

I see you organise the meets and events, when is the next local gathering?

Thanks for the info.

Woodhall Farm - only had the 16v for a month and most of that time itís been in bits in my garage. I used to have a bright blue metallic 8v but i sold it to a guy in Bovingdon.

It is getting that way. I never managed to find my "GTi 12v" badge Sad

There's something very nice about that blue DOHC inlet manifold in a Mk2...

Musto - I donít think it would have been me, as sheís been garaged since the day I bought her.

Itís currently got a Jetta front end but Iíve just found an Altas grey 4 light grill , so Iíll be returning it to standard ASAP. (Got nothing against Jetta's or Jetta front ends, just not my cup of tea. :-))

I'm going to try and make it down to the Swan on the 22nd. Give the old girl a run out, providing its not still in bits. (Iím replacing CV boots and ball joints on the 21st)
