Welcome to the build thread for my 1986 Scirocco 16v
I purchased this car 11/07/2009 from the 2nd owner in Scranton, PA. They had owned the car for around 14 years and it had been sitting on and off for 11 when I bought it. Best part about it is that it's 99% rust free and the car is pretty much bone stock
I bought this car on an impulse, not gonna lie. I had not owned a Scirocco for a while and had been just browsing the classifieds when I found this one. My first Scirocco was almost identical, but being much younger when I owned it I lacked the funds to buy the stuff I wanted. With this one I have pretty much set out to make it the 16v I always wanted.
The day I picked it up.
All cleaned up for the first time, turned out really nice. (sorry about the pics, taken with a blackberry)
*Update 2/12: Changed the original thread to include earlier pictures of the car and to make it more of an introduction to the thread. It's amazing to see how different the car looks now compared to such a short time ago.
*Big thanks to Paul for changing the thread name
Enjoy the build, I've had a blast along the way so far and there is always more to do.
