How rare are these in Oz,

I swear there was one on ebay 6 months ago I should of brought it, It was going for $1,500 !!!

What would I pay for good one, Do they have many issues any info would be great.

Im still after a vr6 but the more I look at these caddys plus any MK1 rabbit im thinking twice..

Love these little babies, they are very rare I don't think there is any in Australia! I could be wrong, it has been known to happen once or twice!

they are pretty rare and quite expensive in Australia

There are currently 3 I know of that "may" be for sale.
A red one in victoria with dodgy import papers so good luck getting it registered. (was on ebay a little while ago)
A black one in sydney. Owner is asking top dollar and its a pretty rough car.
A white one in tasmania. Not sure what the go is there. Im sure it owes the owner a pretty penny for importing it though so be prepared to pay.

There are a few more than 3 - couple that are road registered around the place and there was one undergoing a wild conversion about 2 years ago but it went quiet.

the two tone blue and white one used to be a victorian car. Those pesky Tasmanians plucked that one from under my nose! (all the best mk1s end up in Tassie) It was undergoing a massive rebuild last I heard. Havent heard anything about it in a while though.. Be interested to see an update.

The one in Hobart, Tasmania is owned by a nice man who has quite a few VWs... I think it's all white? We may have plucked some from mainland, but nowhere near as many splits that the mainland has plucked from us... Payback! :) LOL The problem with Tasmanian Golfs is if they have lived up the NW, there won't be much left of them.. I have retreived a few from up there the last few weeks and they are pretty much parts cars, with the exception of one or two.... No Caddies tho.... :( Like trying to find a Samba....

Does Mike and his father still have the build thread?

No, it's gone.
Dunno what is going on with it. He's got a berg cup replica project on at the moment so i think the caddy has taken a back seat.
