I've just confirmed with my younger brother..

 

It was either my old mans at one stage, or it lives very near to a family friend in Hertfordshire, we can't remember which one though..

Just rang my dad..

 

Yeah, apparently he sold it to someone who took the engine out for a Morris Minor V8 pickup with a Jag rear end..  Dunno what happened to the shell/chassis after that though... the reg was L288 CRY... 

 

I know the world is a small place.. but c'mon.. seriously?

Hmm.

It's a bit out of date - so here goes.

 

Passat went, then nearly came back. Was scrapped I believe.

 

Caravan lives on as a mx hack (sold to a old mates cousin or somesuch)

 

Vectra went to AS chap. Still going afaik.

Currently with no seats (stored) and not much floor (left).

Rear brakes next on mechanical list.

 

Runs  :-)

 

Seems to attract a lot of attention - may be time to move it on if I can't devote enough time to it.  :-/

Well then. The winter beater.

Both rear doors in bits.

O/s/f window dropping out partial sorted (needs reg at some point- reg and door bent on inside)

The exploded clutch one. Repaired and gone. Shame, grey leather.

Amusingly it took the wife about a month to realise I had two. The leather gave it away.  :-)

Passat did a real good turn for my FiL but was just getting very tired in the ancillary department as most old VAG shit does. Stupid but time consuming things like yet more window regulators, door mechanisms etc.

 

Also had an almighty oil leak :D

 

Chuffed to see my old A6 in your photo above!
