Hi!

Bericht door Erik Gertsen » 16 mar 2008, 02:42

I guess I'm to learn a little dutch eventually, hmm?
I'm new. I've owned 20 cars in my 31 years, who knows how many
more to come. I was rather pleased to see a video on you tube with a flame spitting earth shaking merlin engine, and I thought to myself, "I have to go join this forum, immediately". That was 10 minutes ago. I've been completely overtaken by automobiles and machinery since a very young age, and this looks like a place where there are people with similar issues! Hope to talk to you all soon-

Regards,
Erik

i dont believe so. i think, and i should have added, that it was the polo, but in a very boxy style, not like the newer polo's in any respect. in brazil they called it a derby, i believe. it looked half B1 passat (the nose was the same underneath as audi 80/90, and shared outward similarities). it was my rally car, so to speak, i drove it into and over so many things and it never gave up.. beat it senseless! it ended up having a problem with the fuel tank and some electricals, (and i had struck a deer with it,ahem) so i sold it to a friend for $100 and its still going today.

oops, too much story. sorry! :shock: :wink:

as soon as the metalwork and the exhaust is finished on my civic, i will be driving that for a time. the engine , thankfully, has been ready for a while now. I have to completely strip and restore my mk1 golf, before it gets too corroded to repair, but I think my next will be a manual transmission 5 series or 7 series if i can find one. with lots of things to follow.... :twisted:

How about all of you? and what are your favorite roadcourses?
