Say hello to my new girl... A tale of love , pain , tears , sadness & joy all rolled into one (car). It began Thursday 13th of August , sat at work winding down to close , somthing just made me click on Gumtree to see if their were any local VR's (or even GTI's) for a dash , interior & any other good bits. There it was , right at the top of the page a 3 dr black highline , nearest ... As any Northern VR6 owner knows , we don't get a lot of them for sale up this neck of the woods. So a quick email was fired off & one was received just as fast Hi, it is possible that someone is calling to see car before tomorrow eve. If you wanted to nip round now whilst it is daylight feel free. The situation is I put the car on Gumtree late Monday eve and didn’t expect lots of interest and really what I should have done is tried to start the car before posting it. I am a bit overwhelmed by amount of people interested and I have delayed getting back to people and yesterday I quickly tried to start the car using jump leads but car makes a one click sound before alarm triggers. I am not a mechanic and know nothing about mechanics or alarms etc. I have no idea what the problem is. I am guessing it is either starter motor or alarm being moody because battery is flat. An oil check shows there is oil in the engine and inside of engine cap. My first chance to try and start car properly will be this weekend. I have jsut emailed all the interested people with the same email: ‘Because the car will not start at this time I will accept £££ as it stands or £££ if it starts. It is an honest unmodified original car that, although scruffy from being stood, worked perfectly in late 2013. As I have stated there is rust on front sills and rear arches. I have received over 10 enquiries of people wanting to view the car since the advert Monday night and not sure how to start arranging viewing with so many interested. I imagine at £££ that anyone wanting an unmodified Highline as a project car will want to take it away. Probably best thing to do is if you are seriously interested in collecting car as it stands as a non starter for £££ - and trailer it away - before weekend please let me know and I will send you the postcode etc If you are interested let me know, thank you I was round there faster than Usain Bolt in a Top Fuel dragster... The previous owner had LOVED & still loved this car for the past 13 years , he had tracked it down after searching for a year , the sales rep told him " If you don't want a black 3dr highline then it's not for you" He instantly fell for the car and after a visit with a mechanic friend , then the money 7K , he took ownership. For the past 11 years he used the car on a daily basis , ill health had meant he could no longer drive the car and it had not moved or been turned over for the last 2 years. Inside she was mint , outside she was in a real state , two years of being unwashed and parked against a wall had really took it's toll on her , blistering & bubling on most panels , rot on the arches & sills. We chated for a while about the love of golfs, then , I walked away telling him I would sleep on it , I had the money in my pocket but my mind was telling me no , but that body (sing R Kelly pump n grind) 10 mins later I was on the phone telling him I would be round in the moning with the cash , at worst I would have a full fat interior for my ODB1 and some breaking to do. A quick visit in the morning , the trading of £££s for the keys and logbook , the seal of a deal handshake & I was off to work smiling like a kid at Xmas. What a long day , it was like waiting for Xmas, I was straight round after work armed with a jerry can , battery , wd , oil & water ( the five elements ) On went my battery , in went some fuel , oil & water , then a bit of WD on the auxillary pulleys . First turn it grunted a little , like an angry bear being proded with a stick after 2 years hibernation , his wife poped out questioning noises coming from the car , 3 turns later it roars into life & we both look a little taken aback. Get in ! ! ! I then arranged for my good friend and his trade plates to collect the car and follow me to my friends garage His children cried when he told them he had sold the car , they had known it since being born and brought back from the Hospital , I think the owner may have cried too when I rolled off the drive as he video filmed the end of an era but a new begining for the car. I promised to keep in touch & told him I would take him out when she is ready ....
