Finally back on the road February 2011 after 6 years. I've owned it since 2001 but the GTE interior was carried over from another car which I had in my final year of school in 1999. Originally a 1.2 it's had a series of 1.3 and 1.4's over the years, has GTE shocks and a 5 speed gearbox.

My restoration thread 'Rolling Resto' can be seen at http://www.mk1oc.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12204

Video of the restoration can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I78EwmA2wBY&feature=youtu.be

I brought the car to town today for the Annual Regatta and festival bank holiday Monday. It's been my ambition since I moved down here in May 2004 to be able to drive the car into town on the August Bank Holiday weekend. It took me seven years longer than I had hoped but I made it in the end. And I stayed on the dry for the day so I could drive it home after, just like back in the day.
