      nicely done

      went to the local junk yard yesterday, and saw a most eclectic collection. there were 3 old beetle, a 944, 928, a roadrunner, an early 70's nova with three blocks an extra crank several heads and a transmission piled inside, a 65 chrysler 300, a polara, old newyorker, something with a straight six flathead, a food truck, three campers, several 300z's, a bunch of older x-types (including a v12) and an mgb gt. definitely a more interesting selection than the typical taurus/neon/civic pile the usually had

      I'm embarrassed for them Now does that make Sciroccos even more classic that there are so few even Volkswagen forgets what they look like? The sad thing is there were a few nice Roccos at the show on Saturday that were more worthy of a photo than this Corrado.

      the shell itself is pretty rotted out, you looking for anything in particular? iirc the wheels were there and in decent-ish shape. under the hood was pretty sketchy but im sure there aresom salvageable items, headlights, one mirror, and some other misc trim bits and what not were in pretty decent shape.

      i think the carb was gone but i dont remember, ill be going back later this week tho

      Ugh. Scirocco feels like it's barely holding idle now. It was just having a high idle but now it seems to be jumpy. And I did some testing and now when the car bucks at low rpm (~2000) I can distinctly hear a clicking sound. Not sure if the fuel pump is getting bad connection or just on it's way out.


      Page ownage, so I have to post my most recent pics. At least it looks good. And it's slightly lower I took these a week and a half ago.

      It'll be a few years until she is big enough to eat rabbits so I'll honor your request for now (and even if I feed her rabbits they will be frozen/thawed so...).

      As far as a name, I'm open to suggestions; if one of you throws a name out that sticks I will reward you with a badass albino from the first litter (~$1000 value) so let's have 'em!

      I should just put it out there that I used to breed these snakes, and it was only when my wife was pregnant (read: crazy lol) with our first child that she made me get rid of all of them. I know what I'm doing.

      She will be at Bonelli this year too for anyone that wants to see her.

      P.S. This is what a coral albino looks like:
