    I am looking at getting a mk2 as a restoration, (or possibly track), project. I am however looking for a specific car, a November 1997 GTi 8v in Burnt Orange/Copper colour, log book states brown. Not sure on the official colour name. The car was once owned by my wife before we met. It was written off by her insurance back in 2008. We have since seen it MOT'd and Taxed up until May 2016 and is currently SORN'd. This car is sentimental to my wife and is the "the one that got away". Not sure where to go next in search for it, so I am reaching out for help. Reg is R499 SJM.

    Thanks in advanced for any leads/suggestions.

    Chris

    Hi Chris,

    I did see your post on the Facebook MK2 forum some time ago... Strangely the car came up for sale in Devon near me last summer, very cheap too... but not in a good state - No Mot and O/S/F damage.

    I'll try and find the ad, which was on a local for sale site on Facebook.

    :(:(

    Bad news I'm afraid. The car was scrapped on 29/07/17 :(
