Im New Here... But I am sure you all know my car

Post by NMcP_Storm » Tue Nov 19, 2013 12:23 am

Hi,
Been a dubber all my life (38 next week) and have currently have a fleet of 3.
My Daily work hack is a 2012 VW CC 140d GT in Pearl Black. Sees me do about 25-30k a year in my job as a Service engineer.
My first toy is a Mk1 cabrio golf running 2.0 16v ABF. Full black leather corrado storm trim, 280mm with a MK2 servo and master cylinder big brake upgrade. SS system by Milltek and coilovers. 16 inch Azev As and Toyo Proxys
But the reason i am here is my latest puchase.

Hell Blue 81 MK1 Storm. NRB 259W as you know it.
Formally Sean's then Ryan's and then Sean's car again. But as of a few weeks ago it became mine.

But before all of that it was known to me as a good friend owned it. Mr Chris Uttley
Once I knew it was for sale I had to have it.

Look out for it on the roads of the South East of England and a few shows further a field.
Until then....
be good be careful.
Neil McP

Woking? Pah, that's practically in the Midlands!

There's a few of us down this way (I'm from deepest Kent), we'll start doing the coffee meets again when the weather isn't cack

How about doing a Meet at Prept (Brands hatch) at some point. Every last wednesday in the month from about 7 onwards. Once the clocks change and the light is better for longer.
