      Hi all, I just joined. Cross-posting to both current picture threads...sorry.

      Here's a scanned photo of my '75 Scirocco when it was brand new. Dull photo, as it is 28 years old. First year, so I had all the problems VW experienced in developing a front-engined water-cooled car. Still had carb, points and condensor, and two wipers. Bought new June 1975 for $5525 tax, title, and delivery.

      After one year warranty expired, I removed all emission stuff, dead GM air conditioner, tons of wiring and hoses, and switched to a Hall-effect type ignition. I ended up with two bushel baskets of removed parts. Topped out at 107 MPH!

      Died of total engine failure in 1985 with 134,000 miles on the clock. Sold it for $500 to a guy in Virginia with a wrecked Rabbit with a good engine.

      Looked for another, but couldn't swing the $25K Corrado when they came out, so ended up going a different direction. Still look at the Scirocco adds once in a while. One of these days...

      Here's one many a few years later after the infamous clear-coat peeling began. I re-painted it at the end of that summer. Sand-blasted the wheels, too, and put on some clear-coat.

      Hope you enjoyed. Didn't see any first year cars pictured.

      What? Think I was screwy? One trip my brother and I pulled the boat from western Ohio across to Connecticut, out to Cape Cod Mass, up the coast to Acadia National Park in Maine, and back across the mountains in Vermont and NH. Camped in the boat cabin. Sailed in Boston Harbor right under the stern of Old Ironside (USS Constitution.)

      Yea, I'm screwy, but then, I've always been that way...

      yup, they tap off after the a/c and before the heater core. they will blow a/c but not heat. this was intentional, as you can get fresh unheated air from the side vents while heating the interior with the center vent.

      I only payed about 450.00 for that job. It still needs to be wet sanded, but it was a hell of a deal. I gave the painter ( who looked like he was on crystal ) an extra 40.00 under the table to shoot the inside as well. Unfortunately the body work that was done on it prior to painting was not as smooth as I would have liked so it needs to be repainted again. I found an old welder in my town that does all his own body work using nothing but metal, the only problem is that he charges 75 bucks an hour

      That spoiler was supposed to be the same color as the car. I had asked the painter to take it off so he could spray behind it. He did, but never sprayed the spoiler He just didn't understand....

      hey riteone, is that an aftermarket ragtop? i saw a scirocco for sale in nor-cal that had a ragtop. and i heard a rumor that there was a factory sliding rag sunroof, but i have yet to seen proof that any came from the factory that way.
