Free Car - VR6

Hey

I thought Id offer this out to you lot before i go off to the vw forums, but does anyone want a VR6?

Basically the history is, she went SORN and has sat on the drive letting the mot and tax run out, for a year. Originally going to tart it up to sell on but we've just not got the time.

Its an N reg 2.8 VR6 (narrow v6) - in silver, 120+ miles on the clock.
The roof lining is out (stage one of the tarting) as the rust around the front windscreen was causing a little damp to seep in - i took the lining out to give it a clean up, i havent put it back as the rust has not been sorted.

The rear has some rust where the light cluster has a seam, its been patched before and has crept back (useless chipsaway!), basically needs a cleanup, new battery and put through an mot.

BBS alloys (rare) and when it was on the road, went like stink! Fast go kart retro golf, in silver.

If it was me id get it mot'd, uprate the suspension and bushes, make the thing handle like it should, short shifter, and thats about all it would need. The engine purred and mid range torque was lovely

As i say, been on the drive for over a year, it was my mums, she used to potter around in it daily but went and bought a Kia, Battery probably had it now, I tried moving it (by hand) the other day but couldnt 'crack' the rear brake pads.

Tow away a track car, or get her on the roadr, I dont want any cash for it - reg docs will be handed over etc. Originally a mechanic was going to come pick her up, as it was practically good to go bar the bits above, but he went awol and originally was going to give 300

To recap:
2.8 VR6 in silver
needs some body touching up, roof lining screwing back in after said work, needs a battery (maybe) but clutch, brakes, gearbox etc. were all great when it went off the road.
If i had a driveway, i would have it !
