      Yep, I was there a few years back. Actually, I was in Munich when the yellow car was dropped off in Toronto by the delivery truck, after the "incident". Unfortunately I won't have too much time in Munich on my own. Other than the Sunday when I arrive, I'll be in the office most of the time.

      Not that I'm complaining or nothin'.

      Why hasn't anybody posted to this thread for a few days



      I'm really excited about taking a Scirocco to Cincy now

      the above photo is from a local Euro car show, I went to yesterday in the rain

      I won a Best of Show award in the Corrado/Scirocco category, beating out 3 other Corrado VR6's that were there, that had better paint jobs on them than my 88 and where cleaner than my 16v. Since I really went to this show just to be there and wasn't showing it, like others that had cars there.



      ... plus awards at Cincy are different in good way, than what was at this above show

      Hopefully you have some after office time to enjoy the city, otherwise yeah, I would be complaining.

      Ok, I know Daun usually has a Cincy info thread stuck at the top or something, but we don't have that yet. And I know he posted the hotel info, but where is it? Daun?

      Cincy news: Hotel group rate is held to the same price as last year - $92/nite. They **should** be ready to accept reservations. As always, it's the "scirocco.org" group rate. (937) 283-3200. Call early, call often. Cut-off is (I believe) May 12th. (I don't have the paperwork in front of me.)

      This reminded me of when I bought my first '81S... The owner was from Scottland, and when he bought the car new, there was a Mk.1 and an '82 Scirocco on the showroom floor.
      I told him that I wouldn't be here right now, if he hadn't made the right choice...

      It's just neat to see so many rocco's in the same place at the same time and not any 2 are alike .... which make it more exciting.
