Hi Kev. If you are refering to MRT 308, my Dad took some pics and notes on the car at a few VW Actions before your Dad let it go to Ireland. I rekon he must have spoke to your Dad at a few shows. I guess that if it is in Northern Ireland that still counts as being in the UK, which is great as it is a real early UK car.:beer:

There was at least one other mainland owner before this happened.

I was thinking you were his son. Dad's notes on MRT308 show it belonging to a John Miller from London though.

I love your pickup :smile:

How much is the firetec kit ? I have always wondered how effective they are when you've got fuel pouring out and a hot engine ?

Cheers
