      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.

      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.
      Deal with it.

      +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...........

      It's not just the special water soluble metal VW used on Mk1s that has me concerned, it's also the other cars on the road. It seems like I see more than a fair share of Sciroccos in a crumpled state. I don't know why or even if it's a real phenomenon. Maybe I just notice wrecked Sciroccos more than wrecked Kias. Maybe modern SUVs are too big to see our tiny cars easily, or people aren't careful enough while blabla-ing on their cell-phones. I just hesitate to take the risk because the car is worth much more to me than its monetary value.

      Hello to everyone!
      My name is Fred, and I have owned 5 Rocco's until now, and only one Mk2.
      My first car ever, was a 1978 Mk1 , bought in 81. I always had a soft spot for Mk1 Scirocco's...
      I am presently restoring a Mk1, and hopefully, will be able to attend Cincy in 2010.
