This is a great topic. Its interesting to see what brought people to these cars. With me it all started with my first car back in 1987, a 1982 VW Rabbit. It was a great car and began my long VAG relationship.
Pouring over my tattered copies of VW & Porsche magazine I became a big fan of the Rabbits sportier S1 brother.
So a year later when a friend of mine offered me a "free" Scirocco that came along with a mk2 Scirocco he bought, I jumped at it. After a series of misadventures towing the car to its new home, I finally had the car of my dreams...
The car was a bit of a basket case and, being a college student with little time and no money, progress on the car was very slow to say the least. Unfortunately I lost my storage space before the car was close to being drivable and I had to give it up. I wish I still had it. To this day I'm a fan of green on tan in these cars...
Since then I have enjoyed a long line of GTIs, but the little Scirocco was never forgotten.
Finally 5 years ago I decided it was time to find another Scirocco. The search resulted in this:
and I couldn't be happier. The great community that came with the car was a bonus.
