Thread: Mk1 Polo LS 1978

  1. #1

    Smile Mk1 Polo LS 1978

    Hi All, I'm not new to the forum, joined when it all started up,
    but thought it time to post up my Old Gal!
    I'm Rob, been in the VW game for, well, since 1985, I've always had Mk1 Golf GTi's,
    one of them was on the GTi Drivers Club (remember that?) stand
    at the first GTi International at Knebworth!!
    give us a flash or wave around
    Stoke etc, seen some nice Dubs around town...

    Its a Mk1 Polo LS 1978, just done 42,000 on the original 1100 Engine
    (although Audi and BMW drivers seem to want to desperately overtake me!!)
    lowered 60/40 on 6x13 Original 70's Wolfrace Turbo's.
    Original front splitter (I make them!) and fitted with a hen's teeth Rev counter,
    took me a few years to find one lol.

    Pics...


    Check out the new splitter I make...







    Plans...Paintwork is showing up the 30+ years now, due for a new coat
    stainless exhaust and possibly a different engine (currently building one)

    All the best to you all and see you around...

    Thanks Chaps, a bit of cosmetic surgery wouldn't go amiss on her, It'll be a slow process in "doing her up" but she's a keeper non the less so mods will appear slowly, but surely. Rob ;o)
