The car was the victim of poor planning on my part a couple of years ago and required an engine swap. The left pic is one of the big end bearing shells. I carry a shell from that crank in each of my cars as a reminder to stay up on PMs. While I can't take credit for all of the damage, I certainly managed to be there for the failure point! I got the swap done right away, but electrical problems plagued me for a year. I finally got those hammered out (bad Hall sender) and got her back on the road in 2007.
The car's name is Jinjur and she is named for a character in the Marvelous Land of Oz. Jinjur, was, well, a bitch, and since the Volkswagen Cabriolet family are commonly known as "bitch baskets" due to the basket handle rollbar, it just seemed fitting.
She's due for a rear disc brake conversion and a new gas tank.

I have just come across your blog and would like to congratulate you on a job well done. The reason for the email is I have recently started a company with a friend of mine Gary Lucy (star of the bill and footballers wives) not sure if you know who he is so heres a link
Anyway I was just wondering if you would mind creating a blog about us http://www.vehicletext.com as I see you are keen on cars. The site is the first site in the world (that Im aware of) that gives you the opportunity to sell/advertise a car via sms and mms vehicles for a one off fee of ��10. I feel that this would be an invaluable way of us getting traffic and more importantly reading of any feedback that people might post in regards to improving the service. We are hoping to create the best service possble for car sellers and buyers and feel that great bloggers are a sure fire way to do this. In the current climate advertising a car can be very expensive and time consuming so are hoping to build a company to offer a great service at a reasonable price.
Please do get back to me with your thoughts
