As everyone knows i've stalked these forums for about a year now and have loved it ever since. Not knowing anyone and just reading about peoples cars and progress has made me fond of an interest in cars. And now it's an obsession. If i hear a car rumble like killer wasps in an exhaust drive by i will automatically look no matter what.
Even though i may not know much about cars yet, we all start somewhere. True ?
So i've been thinking about buying my first car ever since i was in high school. And during the last years of high school having all my friends owning and driving on there P's with there OWN cars.... made me want a car even more.
This gave me the motivation to figure out a way to make some money and save up for a car. At this time i have finished my HSC (2010) and straight away found a job then slowly saved my way to buy a car but finding a car is always hard and fustrating. Throughout Years i have focused my mind in cars and have always changed my thoughts on cars like women on clothes.
All of my friends drive Honda's... Like literally 90% of them own a honda of some kind. Even the girls.
THIS MADE ME HATE HONDA's. I don't have a strong hatred but a dislike in it being such a typical car. The cars that i'd been thinking about getting first was always a daily. I wasn't a kid thinking about driving a R32 GTR or a 180SX or something because i knew enough to know i don't need a fast car atm and just need a car to drive around.
Kinda makes things hard when you live far away from your friends and family.
After a long time saving up money Last week on the 22/03/11 I went to go check out a car that i saw on an ad on gumtree with RR-04-RR ( Yuan ). he was kind enough to take me there to check it out even though he'd only met me twice ( Thanks heaps ! ) because of him i grew fond of the car and for what the seller was selling it for i wouldn't have thought otherwise.
After negotiating with him i managed to purchase my first car.
The first people to know about the car was the spam crew after meeting up with them later that day. And they congratulated me with the new car.
The next week ( this week ) i had one of my good mates to drive me down to pick up my car. He was kind enough to come with another mate of mine to drive all the way (cabramatta - blacktown ) to drive it home ( minto ).
And now she sits at home on the kerb side of the road.
And this is her. Whats a thread without pics ?
Yup this is my first car. A Volkswagen Golf CL MK3. Just read that CL's were short lived. Wonder why O_O.
I honesty can't really tell you much about the specs because i don't know much about it.
All i know is that ..
- 5 Door hatchback
- 5 speed manual
- power steering
- 14-15" random rims.
- almost gone tread
- Central locking
- Carby 1.6L OR 1.8L 4 Cylinder ?
Can't really tell you much more unless you know . I don't know much engine wise but more exterior and interior wise. But overall the car is pretty stock and i wouldn't have it any other way.
Why A golf you ask ?
Well my original thoughts on a car to get was either a Mitsubishi Mirage/Lancer OR a Honda... yeah i know .. a honda ( no hating ).
But yeah Literally two days after the listing it was mine and im happy !!
After all that saving up i finally could afford a car.. of my own.. feels so satisfying but yet also brings a tear to my eyes that i actually accomplish something worth value to me.
Well.. the only downside right now is that the rego is going to die soon so i can't get my P's in a few weeks. IF YOU GUYS have noticed im still on my L's YAYERRRR.
So name has been transferred and is now in my name. So at least i know shes mine FOR REALZZZ brocuz.
OEM Wheels ? Fk that ! AFTERMARKET FAKE SHITT !!!
Okay , After coming home today i wanted to wash my car as she's kinda dirty but my mom said i shouldnt and is going to be dirty again any ways, so i'll wash it another time, no rush.
There was an ugly Sticker on the back of the hatch saying " hatchback World "
It really bugged me because it was ugly . So... i removed it
and looks like this now.
Of course being the JDMST whore that i am. I've already bought a JDMST sticker AGES AGO but i only have one now cause i gave one to my mate. (Callmekay)
And as anxious as i am it now rocks like this.
Took me a while to figure out where to put it so i wanted it somewhere were it would be rockin the sites name.
Did this for lols
I didn't want to learn auto for about a year and gave up after i failed my P's so rather learn it the right way..
Also when i got the car also recieved some freebee's but no money's as the car was indian
Free headunit yayer ! There was an indian CD in there but the guy took it back
Mr Men Hanging thing. Thought it was kinda cute.
I don't know what this is for. anyone like to tell me what it is ?
Allen key yo
A sex TOY O_O haha Have no idea what this is for.
Yeah weird stuff and also a facecloth.
After finding that i found some weird stuff around the interior AND exterior. Yes the worse thing... BUBBLE GUM !! IT WAS STUCK EVERYWHERE !
Okay here are the places ;
On top of the hatch on the inside ;
Top side of the rear Seats ;
The licence plate. yeah i know O_O ;
And also on my carpet somewhere and my FUCKING REAR SPOILER like im thinking to myself how the fudge did all these things get everywhere.
Some wild sex with teenagers ?
Some Crazy Children ?
BUBBLE GUM FETISH !?
But yeah removed some of it with some detergent and some water.
And came out pretty good so i was glad.
So yeah got some of that GOO off and when i was checking the back the .. top bit where you put the speakers in i forgot what it's called was pretty bent. Tried bending ti back but didn't do nothing will proberally fix it some other time no hassle.
When i purchased the car the only MAIN thing he told me was that he's wife had a little accident nothing major to the rear bumper and his wife never drove it since. This is what it looks like now.
Cable tie <3 this shit ?
WILL DO ! Later though
Cars got mroe little imperfections like .. 1 break light not working ONLY when breaking bit of rust here and there
ANd a bent front plate but that's fixed. Make a name out of this people . Kgo !
But overall loving this car. And after about 15 mintues outside storing a few times i learnt to reverse park LOL !
But yeah this is just the beginning just going to re-rego the car and insurance and get my P's then the real story will begin.
