Hello from Germany

Post by Ringelmann »

Hello!

I would like to introduce myself.
My name is Holger and I am from Germany. And last year I restored a Caddy 14D built in 1989.

I was recommended this forum by the Volkswagen Club of South Africa. Where I had made an inquiry about no longer available components.

As is known, in Europe the production of VW classic spare parts were discontinued earlier than in South Africa.

I hope that I could find in this way the one or the other source of supply.
So if someone here in the forum knows a store that sells old MK1 parts, please feel free to contact me.

Greetings from Germany
Holger
