So Im looking at entering the Tiger tank into this challenge and just blowing everyone away . But that wouldnt be fair so I thought Id enter the rustiest VW Golf this side of the Indian ocean .

Basically a 1983 South African Golf mk1 . One of the last ones built , has some 160k km on it . It was given to me cause it was taking up space in someones yard , I tried to sell it no one wanted it , tried to give it away and no one wanted it so it was bound for the scrapheap until I thought this challenge would be a good way to resurect it one last time !

The plan is to basically fit a ko4 I have here off a transit van (it leaks a little bit of oil thats why it was changed but perfect for this challenge ) and then run a small intercooler off a mk4 gti (plenty laying around if anyone wants one) and do a blo through carby set up . Power wont be huge , I think I'll be lucky to make 200 ponies . This car is going to be more about weight loss .

If anyone is interested in helping me out pm me . I'll be doing a little bit of work on sundays , beer and food provided . Really need someone that can weld ! (can supply welder)

Fuck. Yes.

Will watch with interest. I have a soft spot for Mk1's. Looks as thought the lightening process has been started for you already :D

Rust actually weighs more than steel so this thing is pretty much a black hole on wheels. :p

Im saving that bonnet for the future of 2011 shenanigans . Gearboxing someone is so 2010 . Rusty bonneting someone is 2011 PF stylz .

Location is Girraween near Parramatta

Found a cheap Saab turbo for $100 , meant to be a bit smokey so if I have some cash left over will get a seal kit for it

I actually did some work on it today , pumped up the tyres :gay:

Cars ever so slowly getting sanded back to get painted . The apprentice that comes in on weekends and helps out has been tearing an R32 Golf apart for the metal recyclers so not a great deal has been done . Ive finished my unique suspension set up and will post details on the weekend . Ive acquired a new engine out of my old Seat GTI thats so far gone Ive had to wreck it (engine is a bit smokey ) . Im keeping it auto as well . Progress shots coming on the weekend .

Why are the metal recyclers taking an R32 golf?

I'm guessing it is reasonably damaged
