Eight weeks in already and time to start a thread. As my son was getting to the point where he was driving my run around more than I was I decided it was time for him to have his own car and start learning about car maintenance. When asked, he consistently said his favourite car was a mark 2 Golf. Of course he meant a GTi but with it being his first insurance and only 22 that want going to happen. I had been watching the classifieds for some time so knew what the going rate was for a running MOT'd in reasonable order. As it happened I had been watching this car on eBay for a while and so while I was up north dropping number one daughter at Uni I took the opportunity to go and have a look. A chat with the knowledgeable owner (MK2 GTi in the garage and another on the drive) and good look round lead to a test drive, a haggle and a deposit paid! A week later and a150 mile round trip and the car was home. No dramas on the way home.
