My old car.

Thought id post some photos of my old car. Its a phase 2 306 gti-6.It was a lovely car,well,untill it went bang.
Still,had the head rebuit a new ally rad,solid rear beam mounts and various other things bring it up to speed.However after only 8months from the rebuild it decided to let me down when waterpump began to fail and caused the cambelt to go loose thus making it jump 4 teeth on the crank.
We re-timed the engine and the head tapped.(bent valves).
It still ran fine and as I wasnt able to justify fixing it again my girlfriend said "get a scooby,its what you wanted when you get shot of your 6". So I did.
But heres a few photos of the old girl.

I put it in a bodyshop for some serious machine polishing and it came back spotless all bar a few red dots in hard to reach places. Was pissed off but at least it was covered in dirt,a wash probly got most of it off. Heres a couple more too.
