      I feel like this would be a great thread for the Scirocco Community since we are more like a family than many other VW Communities!

      Of cource with Cincy 2009 just over I figured what better time to start a thread like this. This thread is for general Chit Chat for all Scirocco Owners who are on-line and just wants to conversate with other Scirocco Owner who are also on-line!

      For those who don't know me I was the first ever cincy post whore winner (2007)! Since then I've toned it down.

      My name is Brian, or as many of the eastern guys will say Spinney!

      I have a 1 : 1 scale Scirocco model with fully working doors and hood!

      Hey! I'm Amber, one of your officially designated Scirocco Forum princesses (crowned by the Queen Cathy - aka punchbug - herself) and also have a weird craving and liking for the Scirocco
      I use emoticons way too much, and I love talking to you all
      I own a 1981 Colibri Green (or Cedar green? I painted it wrong and can't remember which color it is now...and was originally... ) Mk1 and love it. Glenn is finally working great now, and the only things that need to be fixed are:
      -me driving him more often
      -the radio
      -the speedometer
      -idle problems (but like everyone told me at Cincy this weekend, it's a Scirocco, it'll always have idle problems )

      That is all.

      Hey alteschule, aren't you from around Stover ( I think I remember seeing that in your profile before)? I used to live in Sedalia.

      Anyway, look out, Colorado is sending tornados your way.

      Hello, I'm matt.e. (Matthew, Matt, Matty, Mattie, Oster, Ostrich, Scirocco Hooligan, Hoolie, etc...). I have a Scirocco addiction, am obsessed with monkeys and love cats (and my wife). I spend way too much time on the Vortex. For some reason I'm hooked on reading locked threads in the MKIII and MKIV forums. I'm on my third MKI Scirocco. Firefox rules! You can find me with the same username on slovw rarely posting . That is all.

      Chris I've been planning a thread like this since after cincy 2007, and I even think we discuss some after that cincy. But now 2 year later and after cincy 2009 I figured it was time!

      Paul probably won't even need to sticky it, because I feel it will always be on top of the front page

      Hello, I'm Rob.

      I bought my 1983 Scirocco when I was 15. It has a [past] habit of eating fuel pumps. There is also a dent on the driver's side door and rocker panel, which will be repaired soon . I am trying to keep my car as stock as possible with some small modifications, such as the valve cover. I daily drive my car, so I avoid mods that could be broken easily or mess with the way the car runs.

      I currently live in Dayton, Ohio, although I am from Atlanta. I am almost 18 and I will be a senior in H.S. next year. At this point in time, I would like to attend Case Western Reserve to acquire a pre-vet or pre-med major after next year.

      That's not what is really important, and that's not one of the goals for this thread, it just a ways to chat with other who are online!

      My local gtg has one of the longest lasting threads 3518 pages! But as I said that's not what the thread is intended for!

      *waves hello*

      The "e" in echassin stands for Eric.

      I am the current custodian of a Mars Red 81 S on Cups which is an exact clone of one I had when I was a kid. I rarely drive it because I don't want anything to happen to it.

      I was slow to notice that this is by far the nicest forum, for which I apologize. I've only recently begun putting screen names together with real names, cars, personalities. etc... so bear with me.

      I would like to get to Cincy one year but as of now I still won't risk rain, breakdown, or accident. Maybe I can bring it in an enclosed trailer or I may just pack the clan in the SUV and go without the car, just for the road trip and the company.

      WRONG!!! You painted it the right color, as the body shop just matched the color to the door jambs, so you have a Cedar Green Metallic rocco!

      Hummm. I'm going to be nice and say it's a car and need to be driven.... and yes even in the rain.

      to breakdowns that's why I drive mine like it's stolen all the time so if it's going to breakdown more than likely it's going to be around the house and then when a long trip comes up ... it will be good to go.

      Eric, you know as well as I do that sciroccojim has a history of being the same way about his car(s). If he'll drive his car to Cincy in the rain, you can too.

      +1. We're even planning on driving Glenn next year, rain or shine (he just needs a new wiper motor as fast on there is 20 times slower than on any other car I've seen)....and I'm sure everyone knows how I am with driving our mk1s in moisture-ous conditions.

      Hey, I'm Andy, aka Flandy, and I represent 50% of TEAM ANDY® (35% by volume)

      I'm English, I live in England, in a house, with my girlfriend Hannah.

      I have 3 mk1 Sciroccos, one of which lives in LA with The other half (or 65%) of TEAM ANDY® and has a 16v in it.

      The other two live here in the UK one of which is my Long term project, a Storm model with a 20v turbo lump, LSD, big turbo etc. The second has a stock 20v turbo lump and WAS my daily driver, until some Bint drove into it and wrote it off.

      Current daily is now an E39 BMW 528i which I bought to keep the daily off the road over winter. Best laid plans.......

      Not done very much lately, as I've been broke, and hindered by a lack of facilities but I just moved to a new place with a garage, and all sorts of evil plans are afoot...........

      I shall quickly introduce myself here too.

      I'm Brian. Konomi (Amber) is my fiance, we have his-and-hers Mk1s. Mine is an Alpine white '80. Along with Matt.e. I am also a monkey nut. We live in the fridgid (and scortching during the summer months) climate on Minnesota.
