1988 Volkswagen Golf C 1.3 petrol from Portugal
Carburetor failing on idle - replaced support.
4 speed gearbox synchronisers went - replaced with a 5 speed gearbox.
Water through the door panels.
Elevators from front windows replaced.
Normal wear and tear.
I always liked the mk2 Golf. When the chance came for buying one for 150€, I couldn't resist! It's austere, but practical, economical and great to drive.
Also, I love the repeated comments from girls "oh, what a cute car!"
Extremely well built, everything runs like it should.
Amazingly cheap to run - I spent a total of 140€ on repairs, with all of the above!
It's not a high performance, late model car, but somehow it makes you feel superior in traffic!
I really recommend the Golf MK2, since it is undoubtedly becoming an economical, reliable and practical classic car.
A classic specialist told me that these cars will become the "new Vespas" in terms of fashion.
I like it so much I'm buying a second one, but a 1.6!
If you're reading this, buy one before the price rises - you definitely won't regret it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
