Luck Dip Photos from the 90's

Post

Back to the top
I've now had my Golf for 21 years and when I first got it I attended various GTI Internationals etc. Looking through the photos I took back then ( actual photos, not Digital ) I have found a few of Mk1s that  I will try and share if anyone on here owns the cars in question. I should warn you that I have never posted a picture on here before as I have found the technology too much
:$ and this will mean scanning the photos first…
Theseare mainly just front or rear shots, but if anyione  wants a pic of their car from the 90s then shout up. Here's the list

WCN 851 Y

A 376 XXB

Thanks for the pics - just seen your other post. I'm guessing you're having issues posting them now??

Do it once and do it right! ok, we've identified the problem, lets not make it worse by guessing……… Identifying the sympton is not the same as understanding the cause :)

 Hi. I can't get to the photos just at the moment but will try to upload yours later. Yours still looks ok though. Be interesting ( for me as well ) to see what it was like. Watch this space.

No it's not a wind up, honestly!
It's the same car, just that someone has made a "lot of special modifications"
These include a poorly fitted 16v, deseamed(with filler, I checked it was only filler before purchase) a mk2 dash(held in with good wishes) and some red carpet where the door cards used to be.
I have a couple of pics which I load up in a moment when I can find them.
Thanks for digging the picture out, I really appreciate it  ;)  ;)

The guy I bought her from (Very nice chap actually, i hope he is doing well) wanted the grill and the wheels to sell and I didnt need them (and the Cobra style seats if I remember correctly).
This pic was taken very shortly after getting her home before she had a wash and went inside!

Sorry! Just my paranoia setting in, helped by your car looking just soooo different. Glad to help and good luck on the resto. I think reverting to black is the way to go ;)  ;)  ;)
