if it was me lenny the mk1 golf would win hands down due to the easy mantanince and as said there are plenty of after market up grades out there for them.
but at the end of the day fella its up to you and as said as long as vicki  supports you then its happy days and im sure she will injoy cruzing around in the focus

Thanks Barry,
I agree with you all the golf is a fantastic car and we could all share the interest and see the purpose in preserving,
But the fear of the golf being stolen would be high and the endless catalogue of parts available would lead me astray.
Forr me the Toyota twin-cam engine is such a beautiful sound, and a sound that brings me back to my childhood days 10 years old when my older brother first sat me in the passenger seat of his Toyota and showed how fun cars can be aswell as watching him fit various modifications which has led to my obcession and the focus looking how it does,

Its not the look of the car that appeals to me, its the 180bhp engine inside.
The Levin as standard doesn't look much but I've found a good example of what can be achieved here:

I've just bought a full Levin BZR bucket seat interior consisting of:
Door cards
Front drivers seat
Seat rail front drivers
Passenger seat
Seat rail passengers
Rear seat
Rear seat head rests

All in excellent condition no tares for a staggering 100 euro
I have yet to purchase the car but in fear of landing a car with a torn seat
100 euro for a full replacement interior is worth every penny.

No the wheels will be more expensive than the car if I follow my heart, 17" magnesium Volk TE37 in white
Think I'll settle for replicas

But its hardcore saving from now until January,
Dpf removal next week and that's it from Lenny until the new year.

Nice looking car im thinking of getting another subaru leagact gtb estate used to have one and I really miss it can get them for around $2000 and as ststandard came with 280 bhp 0-60 5.6 secs 0-100 13secs in standard spec, it was a beast with the mods I made finished up with 400 bhp but had to sell eventually, even tho it was on 100k it drove like new and put my mates porsche 911 to shame on quarter mile, now I have a garage im tempted to get one but insurance is stupid used only cos me 400 now when I check its more like 1000 :(

Leave me poor mother alone,
I phoned AA insurance who commented kindly on my focus due to my declaration of all mods appearing on there system,
But sadly they couldn't quote me on a Japanese imported car.
But they advised me to keep my 3 years no claims on the focus and start a new policy just for the Levin,

So I done that,
And eh
Got a quote for full licences driver on a 1999 Levin bzr,
No no claims bonus just starting from scratch, no mods declared and it was 3,897.22 :)
So I tried it again with 3yrs no claims bonus and it was 872.00 ;)

So the plan is Vicki,
Your going to be the new owner and policy holder on the focus zetecS with your 5yrs no claims, and all your mods declared ya milf racer ;) 18" rims, st pod, lowered suspension, tinted windows, body kit, duplex exhaust lmao you will show me up at the traffic lights
Only down side is I'll have to sign the ownership over to you :( poor focus

And I'll be a named driver on your policy in the whip.

Then I'll have my 3yrs no claims to put on my own policy on the Levin resulting in my insurance being 872.00 third party.
Possibly cheaper again if I put you as a named driver.

Now do the Harlem Shake!!! sFun_crazydance.gif
