      Those are awesome! Are the Arbys out in Maryland doing the Wednesday Freebie thing? Buy a 22oz softdrink ($1.50) and get something free? They rotate between a jamocha shake, potato cakes, Roastburger, med. roast beef sandwich, Roast chicken club and something else. Sweet deal if you ask me!

      No idea. I'm usually off on Wednesdays, so I'm nowhere near Arby's.
      Right now I'm uploading Cincy photos to scirocco.org.
      Deal with it.

      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".

      jeff, this couldn't be more true. i had a 64 cadillac that i only drove 1000 miles in a little over 3 years. i loved that car, but i decided to sell it to someone that would do more than wash it, park it, and clean off the dust a few weeks later.
      after that, i bought my first scirocco! it was as early 1984 model, and I've been hooked ever since. i picked up the red 16v in 2004 (i can't believe its been that long!). found a cheap 86 8v for a daily driver for a while, but that didn't last very long. it was my own fault (hit a parking curb that was turned sideways in a parking lot), but someone bought it off me and has it on the road to this day, as far as i know.

      Good Evening Everyone!
      I am finally home in my apartment after almost a 10 hour trip home from my rents house! Overall a good trip, other than some major delabeling of my sidewall in the rear!
      Also reading through this page that I am going to please ask to keep this clear so Paul doesn't have to come in and [IMG]http://**********************/default/zero2/lock5.gif[/IMG] this up!

      Hei, y'all!
      Melissa here (or Mel, or M-if yer lazy)..I drive the world's worst rocco, lol. If you were at CInci and saw Jim buried up to his elbows in a red car, that was mine. She's kinda behaving herself these days, I actually got to drive her (on the ROAD!!) Monday night. Other than being somewhat down on power, it was sweet!

      i'm nearing the 30 mark, any discussion of age is becoming a bad thing.
      thanks though! i don't get people guessing low on my age since i started shaving my head. a lot of people assume i'm going bald and trying to hide it.

      Good evening, kids.
      I'm working on a non-Scirocco technical problem. Still German, though:

      The slide sticks on the 22LR kit. I think I narrowed it down to the recoil spring hanging up on the spring guide. The one on the 22 kit is plastic and there's a lot of slag on it. I'm smoothing it with sandpaper now.
      Unfortunately, I have to make a trip to the range to test it again.

      You should tote your kit to Cincy, we could have a jam band.
      And don't say it can't be done - I got a kit in my old MkI. And my drummer was a Neal Peart wannabe - glock, chimes, chinese bells, more toms than most small zulu tribes, the whole nine yards.

      It's been 15 hours since my last Scirocco drive. I can feel the darkness closing in.
      I need to go for a drive.

      This, my friend, is easily corrected. For those times when Scirocco driving is just not an option, something with a prop and wings works just fine.
      Anyway, Hi, my name is Cathy. I'm got roped into this mess because I own a Ford pickup truck. 1988 F150. And 99 New Beetle TDI. And I had Cafeteria supervision duty with the auto shop teacher who is a previous 16V owner.
      See, I took the truck to a local truck show, where there was a New Beetle parked out front. This after I was telling the shop teacher (during cafeteria supervision) that I'd been looking for a VR Golf for hubby to drag race. Anyway, on this NewBug was a flyer for this little hole in the wall VW show at a small dealership...so I went to THAT with the bug, and what was on a sticky note on the dealer's corkboard? Yep, the words that sealed my fate: For Sale 1987 16V Scirocco.
      The kids:

      L-R: The silver Headache 1987 16V, 2L, and all the trimmings, next is Lowell Snow's Cabrio Conversion, the 'vert, PPL EATR, etc...1986 16V 1.8L and then my Klausie 1979 ABA over JH Frankenbuild Turbo beastie...

      Here's how to answer when someone asks how old you are. Lie UP about seven years. If you are twenty-eight, tell'm you're thirty-five. If you are forty-five (like me), tell'm you're fifty-two. They will walk away thinking how great you look for your age. If you lie and tell'm you are younger, they will walk away thinking "that poor bastard looks like sh!t".

      So a husband is driving with his wife down the highway when a state trooper pulls them over. Trooper comes to the driver's window and asks the husband "do you know why I pulled you over?" Husband reply's "no officer, I have no idea." Trooper says, "Well I clocked you doing 90 miles per hour." "That's impossible, I set the cruise control at 55 as soon as I got on the highway." The wife chimes in from the passenger seat "You always drive at least 90!" Husband turns to his wife and starts cursing at her to shut up and that she is not helping. Trooper says "I also noticed you weren't wearing your seat belt." "Officer, I took it off when I saw you walking up to the car." Wife "You NEVER wear your seat belt. You think it's stupid." Husband laces into his wife again. Trooper leans past the husband and asks the wife "does he always talk to you like this?" Wife "why no officer, only when he has been drinking."
