Nice one Sean, always nice seeing your van in print.

Don’t know how but I must have missed the Harlequin Caddy at Tatton, where was it at?

@lister
Thanks buddy
The fact that someone has put my caddy in a magazine is awesome for me as mine is no where near a show caddy.
The harlequin caddy was with the orange Dav Tec and Green caddy’s

Absolutely love the build Sean, looks fantastic and sounds amazing too. Any idea how the engine swap effects the value of the van?

Nice one on getting into another magazine, always good to see members getting recognition for their work.

The Harlequin caddy from Tatton park had a TDI engine and no arch kit, I think this is another one in the magazine.

@Doc
Thanks Doc.
You’re absolutely right there buddy. Very surprised that there are 2 harlequin caddy’s.
@jimbob3000
I have no idea if the value of the caddy has been affected or not. I know some people have sold there Tfsi caddy’s after they have converted them and have asked for more money.
But I haven’t seen anyone sell a VR6 3.2 caddy yet

My wife has just said the Harlequin caddy’s look like they’ve been made by Dyson! I sort of agree.

I used to pass a Harlequin polo on my way to work back when they were new (showing my age) but it never looked right.

A Harlequin Caddy looks spot on and the fact that it's V6 as well is just the icing on top :D
