She needed a wash and some TLC. Being locked up in the Garage is not good for her. :D

The colour is Jazz blue. From the VW colour scale on the POLO.

Richwood has its crime problems, not like Inglewood though, but bad enough. The highest crime area in the western cape is Dunoon, and it is just across the N7 from Richwood. Not a good spot to be....
