      Very true. I just drove a band from Norway on their week-long tour and they were absolutely shocked at how awful roads in the US are. Having been to every country in Scandinavia I can say that their...

      My 940 just passed 301k miles. I too have though about selling it but I just can't. I love it too much.

      Still pretty different cars though. I'm a Type 53B man, personally.

      53' trailers are technically illegal in almost all of NYC with the exception of some of the highways but I have never once seen that rule be enforced.

      I agree with everything mentioned in that Petrolicious video. The S2 Scirocco has gotten under my skin like nothing else in my entire life. Though I currently don't own any, I've had three in the...

      Two years ago I replaced my tie-rod ends on my Volvo with URO brand ones. One of the boots tore all the way around in one month.

      URO parts: NEVER AGAIN.

      300TE was gas not diesel. The 300TD was '87 only for the W124.

      My father's 300E had a similar problem that was never properly diagnosed. His Mercedes guy was convinced it was the fuel pressure...

      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...
