2 years working in Craigavon and couldn't agree more.

 

But ssssh. Whilst the tourists still go to Dublin, the north is like the best kept secret.

 

Looking forward to seeing the car and the rest of the thread.

 

When I first went to Stroke City I couldn't believe how picturesque it was - typically as an ignorant English kid growing up in the 70's, all I'd seen of the city was view from the walls down into the Bogside - TV news never showed us the fabulous walls, the Guildhall, the Craigavon Bridge - I could go on (and do given half a chance).  I was gutted when I heard Austin's had closed.  And as for the coast just 30 minutes away - in Antrim and over the Border - stunning, but yes shhhhhhhhhh.

 

Hope the motor is decent too.

Locks have always been a bit of a weak spot. Basic 1.3 pushrod with chain. Keep an eye out for water leaks, and the plastic stat housings are crap and prone to fail, expansion tanks can leak at the seam too. Heater should be blast furnace hot too.

All good. 70 mile trip home at 60 - 70 mph!

Its got very little VW content barring a few bits nailed on to the old Skoda OHV engine, plus a bit of VW switchgear. It's basically a reskinned Favorit, even the lower dashboard moulding is identical to the Favorit
