On a snowy day back in 2009 I managed to crash my wifes 6N into a raised bus stop curb, as you can imagine the results were impressive. Passenger side wheel at 45 degrees to the drivers and the steering wheel was upside down, we scrapped the car as a result. This wasn't a rash decision, lots of advisories on the previous MOT....oh and it was Cat C'ed a couple of years earlier when we were in a 4 car shunt in standing traffic. Boot lip pushed in 3 - 4 inches and front serverely deformed....we patched it up for £20 and kept driving! Car was brought for £1500 and we got £1100 payout, plus sold so
Just bought my second mk2 after about 4 years of wishing I never got rid of my first one. She is in a right state as fuel filler neck, wheel arch, fuel filler flap and battery tray is rotten. There’s general surface on near all panels where paint has been damaged. And one half of the car is rattle canned. As far as I can remember the polo was taken off the road in 1998 to be used as a donor car. So pretty happy to do the work to get her back on the road. If anyone else has a black mk2. I’d love to see it as I’m thinking of respraying it back to gloss black.
Hey people, Here's my new project :1988 MK2 Polo Coupe S I've been kindly given the car from my house mate who recently had taken the car off the road due to a few issues. - fuel tank leaks over half full ( new tank from vw heritage sitting here now) - leaking radiator/ expansion tank ( new rad arrived last week ) -CV joint nearly exploded (replaced at the garage last week) Lots of plans for the next few months it's got a fair bit of rust so that needs addressing before winter.
Greetings to all, my name is Oleg, I am from Russia. In our country, second-generation polos are not very popular due to the small number of such cars, and so I decided to look for communities outside my own country. And so about my baby: 1992 release, engine AAV, coupe, well, or a hatchback, 4-speed gearbox. I bought it in 2013, it has a lot that worked badly, there was a lot of putty on the body, but I was happy to move from car with carburetor on car with injector, I was most attracted by the work of the engine, it worked like a clock even at an air temperature of -30°C,
