here are pics of my golf country i picked up today

its a rhd factory conversion also converted to a 1Z 1.9 diesel engine
apparently the vehicle spent most of its time in car shows in England before it was shipped down here
the engine ran bearings and the previous owner did not have the time to fix it as he lives in England and only comes here very seldom

Nice AT rubber would look nice for a start!

Very nice Dean. Congrats!

I snapped this one in Asmara, Eritrea in 2011. Only one I have ever seen in real life.

What's happened to the Golf, Dean?

I would love more pics once you have it sorted.


Re: Golf Country - deanace - 08-14-2013 04:25 PM

still looking for an engine for it
hopefully will get it running early next year
it needs a 1Z diesel engine if anyone can find me one at a good price

Send me the original engine for a rebuild.

after almost a full year of waiting and looking for an engine I finally got round to sorting out the golf

here it is in the workshop waiting for the engine to be installed
