      Ahhhh! Every safety class and talk I ever had just flashed before my eyes! How about: safety glasses, gloves, pants, boots, hardhat with faceshield and earmuffs and chaps? That's what I put on...

      Very common. I've never had one that didn't have this. Nice seats, though I highly doubt you'll get that asking price, I'm sure they will bring in a nice price. Btw, Sciroccos were up to '88 in...

      Stop it! I plan on selling my 16V next spring and if you keep talking like that, I may not. But the reality is four is too many for me. I am liking these
      prices though!

      Just a thought- scrub it off and if the paint is a bit thin afterward, not too bad and if it wears through, touch it up and replace with Joost's repro kit.

      I WANT a ride in that!!!!!! Brad should bring that to Cincy next year.

      Umm, not going to ask about that one.... Seriously though Cathy, looks like a great summer with adventures likes these. ...

      I've told people that same thing over the years. It's really the best way to find those leaks.
      As for your fuel issue- To me, it sounds like starvation, though I could be wrong of course. The in...

      Anything you try, that you haven't seen someone else use successfully, I would recommend trying on your old dash first. I have a little peeling of the vinyl from the dash on my near perfect MkII...

      Sure can. I've never had one go, yet, but from others have posted over the years, leaking seems to be the main way of failure. But I believe the spring failing isn't uncommon either. This is one...

      Guigaro had two proposals for the MkII. I actually don't care for them myself. To me it looks like he took a MkI and made it bland looking. It doesn't look sporty or unique to me. Doug's FB page...

      Sorry, but title doesn't. :D Do you mean accumulator or distributor? Run enough cleaning stuff through the system, or soak the parts and most anything can be cleaned, within reason.

      Took the Slegato to a VW car show in southern Maine yesterday. Mason seems to be getting more into these, which is cool. He was super excited that we won third place in stock watercooled A1/A2. I...

      Next week I will have a pair of SLEGATO badges for...the Slegato of course. Six years, I've had the car and looked for badges. And in keeping with the theme half the time, I am getting them due to...

      Sounds about right. For the most part, this is an older crowd that doesn't want to be around the stupid behavior of some of these MkIII-IV kids. I went in '98 and it was pretty good, but starting...

      I don't think the cars really varied at all, mechanically, but they had some other paint options. I think the main differences lie in the brochure itself, such as in how it written and such.

      Sorry for the confusion. When VW owners speak of MkI, MkII, MkIII etc they're talking about the chassis, A1, A2, A3 etc.
      When Scirocco owners talk about MkII, it's to differentiate between the two...

      And even better, you got him a MkI! That is a great looking car for a very nice price. Make sure he gets a Bentley for it at some point too.

      Correct. Only person I know that has one is Joe and he's not going to give that up. Best to look in European sites, FB pages etc. Good luck.
