Ye Gods - 47 next week!!

Our branch of the family had two people working for Dovercourt in the '70s & '80s so I grew up around VWs - family gatherings would mean a long line of Golfs, Derbys & Polos...

My first motor was a '67 Beetle 1500 which was one year younger then me, had a 127k miles and was rotten ... £50 to buy and £175 to insure TPFT - fixed her up and sold her for £650 a year later!
Followed by...
- Mk1 Golf GLS
- Mk1 Golf GX
- Mk2 Jetta GX
" - Mk2 Golf C
" - Mk2 Scirocco Scala
" - Citerion BX (I know!!!)
" - Mk2 Jetta GL
- Mk2 Scirocco Scala - Mk2 Golf GL
- Toyota Carina Exec
- Merc C200 Estate
" - Mini 850 (Kit car project)
- VX Zafira Active "
" " - Mk1 Golf GX (Restoration Project)
" - Mk2 Polo C " "
" - Toyota Celica " "
- Mk4(?) Passat Estate Sport " " "
" " " " - Mk2 Scirocco GT II (Project)

About covers 27 years of driving, one wife and three kids ... Seem to always return back to the old VWs


'08 VW Passat Estate 2.0l TDi Sport Auto [Wife's car]
'03 VX Corsa 1.7l GLS Di [Daughter No. 1's car]
'00 Toyota Celica VVTi [My car]
'92 VW Scirocco GT II [Project]

I'm 28 later this year, been driving for 10 years and in that time I've had 5x Mk2 Golfs, 1x Mk4 Polo, (shush, a clio AND a metro :crying: ) and this is my first Rocco, the car which I've owned the longest and done the least number of miles in!


do I really want a carb'd valver? answers on a postcard...

My mean age is 16, which is also my median age. Since I have been each of my ages for 1 year at a time it is not really possible to give a mode age, although the completed leap-year ages would have a slight advantage (0,4,8,12,16,20,24,28).

There you have the commonest interpretations of this Scirocco owner's average age. Glad to help.

Well....I'm 36, but the MrsCarlos technically owns The Chariot, and she's 45.

So...40 years 6 months?

As a well bred lady I could never reveal my age.

I was born the same year as Star Wars, Smokey and the Bandit, Rumour by Fleetwood Mac and the Golf Gti

I'm 26 in feb and had my '79 storm for just over a year now.
first car i owned was a mk2 golf driver when i was 23 (up until that point id been driving my parents renault clio)
sold it to get the rocco

am all about all things mk1 now.

hopefully getting the rocco on the road this year then probably gonna buy a mk1 golf to run daily :)


If it's got tits or tyres it's trouble but I always go back for more.
