i remember looking at these in 2004 with my first big car loan, of £5k, when i got my forst proper job, OSG at prison on 13k, was still at mum and dads!

the options were 206 gti, the proton or nisan pulsar gti-r.......how coll were they!

went with the 206 in the end.

Always loved those, and there were never too many about.

Looking forward to seeing the updates. Very cool car.

Cheers

Paperwork that came with the car. All previous MOTs and annual servicing.



Took the car out for a quick blast this afternoon and OMFG this things revs! Can’t remember it being so much fun... I had smiles for miles!

A few shots of the interior...






Air con is ice cold! Old Sokol headunit



Found this in the player. Needless to say not my kinda thing!




Can’t wait to get stuck in to giving it a deep clean...

Excellent stuff, I do love a geeky session ploughing through service history and receipts on cars! Good luck with the project!

Tidy it up. Drive it until I get the punto back. Decide which one I want to use as a daily and out the other away in my mother in laws garage. Either way I’m keeping both as future investments!
