I bought my 1968 MK1 2000 in april 2001, it was my first car, I loved the shape of them since I was a kid so I jumped at the chance to buy one. Its conifer green with red interior, it is a manual with overdrive so it goes well. Its not immaculate but looks smart and will keep up with modern cars. For a 34 year old car it is very comfortable and handles well. The boot is large and has managed to carry many things since i've had it including a camping geer for me and two friends. Although the steering is quite heavy at low speeds it is really responsive on twisty A roads where it is in its element. You can cruise along at 50mph, overtaking does not require any kind of gear change, you can scare the odd BMW and Mercedes driver with its rapidness. Since I bought it I have had a couple of problems with it. I have needed to replace the clutch slave cylinder, the engine mounts, some heater components and a couple of headlights. Other than that its always been reliable. I started it the other day after not starting it for 5 weeks, the engine didn't even turn once before it fired, it spluttered for 5 seconds and then was fine. I am now trying to sell it as I am going to Uni, but I will be sad to see it go. If I had the time and money i'd strip it down, put a Rover 3.5 V8 under the bonnet and spray it a beutiful dark metalic blue. ahhh well maybe one day.
