I swear I have posted here before
Apparently not though, so here it goes:
I do come from a VW(/Audi) family (sort of).
My moms first car was a blue 1979 (?) VW Beetle similar to this one
Her brother (whom I'm named after) owned a yellow 1976 (?) VW Rabbit (which he was killed in at the young age of 18).
My grandfather has owned so many VW's I can't think of half of them. I know that he was stationed in germany for a while, and bought a few v dubs there. I will try to list out the cars he owned but I know I will miss many. (I just talked to my mom and she said he would buy a new VW every year after trading in last years model [never a Scirocco though]. This was mainly in the 70s, but also earlier.)
VW Vanagon truck
VW Karmann Ghia
VW Diesel Dasher Wagon
I'm pretty sure he had a Fox and a Jetta too, but I'm not sure about that.
Back to my mom:
She owned a 1987 Audi 4000 CS Quattro
She was pregnant with me when she crashed it into a tree (1992)
It wasn't until 2005 (ish) that she got back into the Audi world
She had a 2001 Automatic S4...
...Traded that in for a 2001 Nogaro Blue 6spd S4
Then one day in 2008 my sisters boyfriend came home with his 1983 Scirocco fresh from the paint shop.
This is what made me want one.
Later in the year I saw a silver 1984 Scirocco on Craigslist for $600
After bugging my parents about it for 2 weeks they finally allowed me to purchase my first car at the young age of 15.
Here is the beauty as she sat the day I picked her up
And this is what she looked like in her finest state to this day
As of today she's being stripped of her old paint in preparation for new fresh paint.
Why would I repaint a car that was just repainted last year?
Because the guy who painted it (for free, minus the paint) did a terrible job.
There was orange peel everywhere and drips along the whole drivers side
Here is how she sits
