      Biggest mystery is that OP is from Pittsburgh, heart of the rustbelt. Nothing lasts here.

      Any underhood shots? I had a '79 with the 1.5l diesel and manual(!) brakes. There was practically nothing under the hood, haha.

      I've owned three of these cars. My pockets are so shallow they're basically not there. And yet, I was able to daily drive all three of them. By the way, the priciest one was a 16v purchased for...

      You're posting on the Vortex. There is an entire sub-section of this website devoted to buying and selling parts from Sciroccos (and other subsections devoted to the other A1 chassis cars). I am...

      One last post, because it occurred to me that it's sort of crazy that an '84 GTI in similar condition would be listed for at least three times the amount this is. Under the radically different...

      ALSO: the 1984 's are a transitional year. Later '84 cars have a few things different. Namely an intake transfer pump and some other odds and ends.

      If that was close to me I would have bought it already.

      I bought a $700 '84 in much worseshape than than that. I did need to buy a new fuel distributor but I got one off a running west coast...

      Why exactly does the fuel distributor need to be rebuilt? I have owned some incredibly terrible CIS VW's that were made primarily of rust, cobwebs, and mouse droppings and CIS was never the problem....

      I helped a friend change a clutch on a '96 Legacy the other day. He was like, "okay time to pull the motor" and we had it up and out in under 15 minutes. Five minutes to mount the clutch and then it...

      I owned a '99 V70 base with the 5-speed. This guy is basically right. It's not really the epitome of FUN. My 940 is an auto (obviously) and I rarely wish I had a manual in there.

      I was sitting in traffic on 2nd Avenue last spring and a cabby motioned for me to roll down the window and then he was like, "hey buddy your brake lights are out" and I was like, "which one?" and he...

      This is anecdotal, but it seems to me that Saab/Volvo people are way more likely to own a full set of steelies with decent snow tires on them. Clist ads for Volvos (especially rwd ones) often mention...

      Well this thread is going downhill fast... I will save it by posting some somewhat rare Passats!

      I always thought it was funny that these are known as "cold air" intakes when most people install them to suck a bunch of air that's just passed through the radiator or position them over the exhaust...

      I tried to buy a '75 Scirocco off of my neighbor when I was in college. He was an old recluse and told me he'd die owning that car but that I could have his '92 Accord EX. Should have bought that...

      My '84 Scirocco had the ultra rare MFA cluster that would give you mpg, exterior temp, engine temp, etc...

      The mpg readout would often say >80 mpg and the exterior temp would be really hot.

      Would buy, have bought, will buy again.

      The most reliable car I've ever owned (and still own today) was purchased with 272k miles for $200. It'll hit 300k this month. I look forward to 400k.

      I almost bought an identical car for $700 with a blown headgasket. Yours looks nicer!

      FYI rwd offset Volvo wheels will fit fine though they will poke a little.
