      Where did you see it?
      the one i saw was a 16v, owner said it was an 88 and he got it in LA off a guy who had owned a few sciroccos, but car is in northern California.

      Well, either someone like Helios Blue and painted their 16V or it's a Slegato that got a transplant. Either way. Wouldn't mind having two of his wheels for mine:

      I'm guessing transplant now. It appears to have the fender badges and that appears to be a "SLEGATO" B pillar badge, and what appears to be the 8V's tailpipe still. Doesn't appear to be any shine from rear rotors showing through the rear wheel spaces either.

      Holy crap! What a busy weekend. Hauled the 76 and the 80 down to my in-laws friday evening/sat morning, the proceeded to pull almost everything off the 80. Put the motor, brakes, an axle, and full suspension from the 80 onto the 76. Motor from the 76 went into the trunk of the 80, I kept the FF trans though Header and exhaust tubing from the 76 weren't the greatest, so that will be junked, but it had a flowmaster muffler on it, kept that. Also saved the dash wiring harness and fuse box from the 80. Tomorrow, the 80 goes off to the scrapper, just too much rust to deal with, they're giving me some cash, so it's not a complete loss, and we don't have an eye-sore on the driveway anymore.
