The owner didnt really want to sell it, but after calling him multiple times over a timespan of 2-3 weeks he finally gave up and gave me a price. I jumped into my car drove over to his place to get the car before he changed his mind.

 

The car is a 1997 Golf 3 syncro color edition with the 2.9i Vr6 engine. Its quite rear ive been told. Its one of 3 cars that was sold new in Norway in 97.

 

The car has been a project the last 10 years, its been resprayed and its in quite good shape. There are some technical issues, but those are easy to sort out. The interior and exterior is more or less flawless. Im done with rustrepair from previous projects so this is welcoming break from that.

Fast forward to today, just got the new wheels and had them fitted. Had to play around a bit with camber and spacers, but im very happy with the fitment.
