      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.

      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.

      So Amber, now that you've seen the huge party that is Cincy, you're absolutely hooked, aren't you?

      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.

      Hello, my name is Jeff and I'm a Sciroccoholic. I've been one since 1977, when I went for my first Scirocco ride. They say about Sciroccos, they are so good don't even try them once or you will be hooked for life. Nothing could be truer.

      I have owned 4 (3 mk1 + 1 mk2) Sciroccos in my life. I still have the mk2. I am sorry to say that my wife has also succumbed to the powerful intoxication. She owns one (mk1) as well.

      At this stage in our lives we don't see a way out. We have been looking to down size our housing since the kids are about to leave the nest. Do you know how hard it is to find a 3 bedroom townhouse with a 6 car garage?

      It's been 15 hours since my last Scirocco drive. I can feel the darkness closing in.

      I need to go for a drive.

      Personal responsibility, a lost art.

      6 car garage? Two Sciroccos and two daily drivers, plus....???? That might help in your search.

      While I've not been an addict as long as Jeff here (I was only 3 years old in '77), I have been quite true to the cause since my first purchase of one in 1993.

      Oh yeah I almost forgot. See Jeff, with downsizing the housing situation, that frees up more money to sink into what should be your next pursuit - flying.

      It's been 15 hours since my last Scirocco drive. I can feel the darkness closing in.

      1) Go rural, that's what I'll do when the kids are grown and I can't stand the property taxes here anymore: nice little country house with a hanger hidden in the woods for all your stuff! I have a friend in Kentucky who did this. His house overlooks a big scenic rolling property with ponds, grass, trees, etc... and in the woods he has a monster building with race cars, etc... that you can't see at all. The building was around $50000, a lot but less than I thought.

      2) You can extend the number of hours without driving the car by constantly checking in on it in the garage (if anyone sees you caressing it, quickly retort that you're dusting it off). When things get really bad, push it out into the driveway to see it in the sun. That's what I do, and it seems to control the pangs .

      Great story. Hi, I'm Chad, a recovering 'roccoholic. I bought a used Mars Red 1980 in 1986 - the first car I'd ever made payments on. I was a broke college student and was not prepared for the, err, demanding nature of Scirocco ownership. (Having previously daily-driven a '76 Super Beetle and a '73 914, you'd think I'd have been better prepared) so in 1989 I replaced him with a new VW Fox (which I drove to work today, so from a reliability factor I can't complain!)

      My current Scirocco is 1/16 scale. Mars Red with black. And for some reason, it doesn't have a hood. I should fix that.

      Good thing we're going to up-size next, but it's a pain. We have a decent sized condo (about 1800 sq ft IIRC), but with a two car garage it's a nightmare as I gotta park the Kia outside and my Mk1 at my dad's house where the garage is insanely dirty (even the car cover doesn't help) and I have to worry about dents and dings appearing from no-where. I can't wait to get at least a 3 car garage so all I'll have to do is park the Kia outside and everything else will be in one place.

      Well, someone broke into my dad's garage last night. They got into the garage and shuffled through tool boxes and grabbed a screw driver to use to get into the cars. My uncle parks his truck outside and always locks it. They used the screw driver to try and punch the lock out on the p/s of his truck. He doesn't keep anything in there and the truck isn't really of any value ('94 Dakota), and they also shuffled through my dad's car (also parked outside). My Scirocco was in the garage under a car cover and is locked. It looks like they left that alone but they got into my brother's car parked right next to it, but there was nothing in there either. Damn....that's one thing that makes me glad I don't live here anymore. My car would have been broken into for sure.

      Yeah. We all have a pretty good idea of who they are (a house down the street has 4 guys in their 20s living there. The steal for drug/booze money type). They weren't the smartest of people, as they left the screw-driver on the ground next to the truck door. We filed a police report and the cops took that in for evidence.

      It's scary as this neighborhood used to be the type that you'd never see this happening in. 20 years ago everyone knew everyone else, younger couples with small kids were the vast majority of home owners and nobody ever really bothered to lock their doors. How things have changed......I'm scared to even park in the street anymore in fear of getting my mirror broke off or getting side-swiped.

      Nothing wrong with being smartly cautious, but don't live with such fear that you don't do things you enjoy. I'll use my seat cover analogy...I will never put them on a car I own. The only thing seat covers are good for is giving the next owner great seats. Live life for the moment. That's why it's called "The Present".

      Personal responsibility, a lost art.
