I'm in the Corrado forums most of the time, and even dabbled in the Scirocco forum for a while when I "discovered" a one-owner '75 Scirocco...here's that thread if you're curious...
Well, I missed that '75. And missed my old '78 Rabbit I had so long ago.
And now, I found a another good MK 1 that I can pour some time into. And unlike the Scirocco, it's here to stay. Though I had some hesitation about buying a car sight-unseen from a guy who calls himself "The Hustler"...
It's made friends with my Corrado.
It's a unbelievably solid car. But it needs work...right up my alley.
I'm rebuilding the carb this weekend (the choke's hanging off of it) but it runs pretty good. The door is getting fixed. It's getting painted...yes, Chrome Yellow. The 1.5L automatic stays. I'm keeping it unmolested.
It's been in good hands the last few years. I'm surprised a VR6 hadn't ended up in it already...I guess it was destined for me
More to come...
