Lenny, if you're willing to travel you can pick up a MK1 golf for 4 grand mint condition. Now that is a serious project with mad potential, parts are easy to get and lots of aftermarket stuff out there for the mk1 golf and the polo, either one of those look crazy disgusting sick when slammed.

 

I see two different side in your post, seems your after power yet something easy to tune work on. I can't speak for the toyota and although it would be damn cool i think you'd get bored of it and sell it.

 

Couple times in the last few months i almost bought myself a MK1 golf... they are just beautiful machines inside and out easy to work on so easy, even the really old ones don't even rust. I say go for it mate.

 

The polo is a nice ride and with you coming from a focus the polo will feel like a box room lol, don't go for that, golf, toyota or bora either way it's a win.

 

With my previous experience from the VAG family a dub has endless potential.

 

Lucky your vicky allows you another car! i've been under strict rules not allowed an MK1

I sold my mk1 for £400, was a good solid one too and ran. also sold the 1.8 turbo 20v engine ,box, full harness and a Mapped ecu that would of made 245 bhp  for £300. so for £700 would of had a 245bhp rocket project, now that would take some catching, the blue 3 door one in the pics is my mates,needs interior has had structural welding done its a 1.3 needs a radiator too but I could get it for £700 ;)

4 grand sterling mate,
That's close to 5000euro then import tax and registration in ireland,
Blows my budget and the range of mods would be too much temptation,
I'd prefer the 1.6bzr
Forgive me but its around 14" lower roof height than the golf,
And the handling would be improved due to the lower centre gravity,
Hugging the bends and hearing the bore of the twin-cam engine on exiting the bends is what its all about for me mate,
Coast in to the corner and flat out on exit,
I'm starting to save now and all going well I'll have a bzr black top engine in December

:) thanks Paul its the sound from the legendary 4A-AGE black top 20 valve twin cam engine
First built in the mid 80's
I won't be fitting a stereo lol
Just me, the engine , a 3" straight pipe for exhaust and a bendy road
As you already know, I don't name my cars
But I'd call the Levin "snaglepuss" because its such a reaspy, fiesty little !Removed! wagon lmao
Pa thong, pa thong
