      Hey , at least he got this forum all stirred up with his ridiculousness. I guess the whole "twinrocco" thing wasnt so special after all!

      Someday I will post something stupid here, but not yet.

      If only I had the time I would drive over there, it's a 1.5hr drive or a 1hr ferry ride.

      I co uld play dumb and ask if I can come look at it, then show up in the Barley Burner and ask him to show me all these mount points (camera in hand)..

      Then inform him that he's the laughing stock of vwvortex...

      Low usage car?!?! 200k on the clock and 50k in the last 4 years is not LOW usage!

      So, he'll spend $15k restoring the car, but won't spend $600 shipping it to Florida?

      Oh and John, if the car isn't it that magazine, it's in another magazine. I promise! I just can't remember which, I have so many subscriptions...

      ok in the description it says
      windage tray and crankshaft oil scrapers






      the vw motorsport windage tray and scraper seem like overkill or makes the scraper almost useless

      Hey, at least the magazine articles are interesting. Pretty funny , I can only imagine how the automive press received that car. Now it probably would not even get a sidebar in the news section.

      Thank you to those of you who posted them!
      Someday I will post something stupid here, but not yet.

      So I emailed him to ask him what documentation and mentioned a few things (That I read above LOL) - anyway wanted to knwo what documentation because without it it's just a 16v, it's all in the documenation.

      Notice how it doesn't require a shred of evidence since he replaced it?

      His response:

      Hi Scott: You are probably correct in some ways about Rally Sciroccos, except these bodies were "recycled" back into production at Karman, meaning they were rebuilt back to standard bodies where they could. There was an article all about these cars in Road & Track, Car & Driver or VW Porsche in 1986 that showed the cars and gave details of how they worked, and why they were banned. When this car was recalled for the leaking plastic fuel tank, the dealer could not get the steel tank to fit because of the brackets (looked like triangles with big hole thru each). I surmised they were mounts for a subframe since that would be the logical way to mount a rear drivetrain, I never saw the underside of the car in the article. I got nurfed in the rear panel a couple of years ago, and decided to replace it instead of fixing it. This panel was twice the price of a standard one, and came in a box marked VW Motorsport, checking the paper trail, it did come from there. I did not say this is a Rally Scirocco, only that it has a recycled body from one.
      I lived in NJ where VAG headquarters are, and they sold a lot of odd cars there. I bought a 78 Scirocco new that had been ordered by a VAG employee, who changed his mind and bought one from the dealer. It had an aluminum hood, doors, and hatch, 4 wheel disc brakes, etc. I had one of 500 1991 Passat wagons sold in the 5 state area around NJ that were synchro, 2L turbo 16V motors, Bilsteins, Euro height, etc. Ever see a 8V turbo Scirocco 2? They made several 1000. Enjoy your VW's they are great cars! Thanks for the info! Earl

      Why cannot people spell SYNCRO correctly EVER? There is no "H". That said, if you owned one, and had a clue what you owned, then you could spell it.

      In my opinion, every word of that is complete bullplop.

      Nothing to see here except an overpriced 16v Scirocco being sold by a compulsive liar.

      It gets better....someone reported him as a scammer, and I will do so if I see that car for sale again.

      My email:

      What documentation do you have ot back that mechanics legend up with?
      It would truly be worth that price if you ahd documentation, but without it - you know, just a SWEET 16v ...
      There is a red 16v sitting in a field, just GOT to the field last year, thinking about going over and making an offer but last I spoke he was going to gut it and race it..
      Without the documentation, honestly, I don't see it selling at that price.
      But even one guy that lives over there has seen your car and says it's probably the nicest 16v.


      His response to my email:
      SOMEONE REPORTED HIM HERE AND HIS AD WAS REMOVED:


      Hi: Let me guess, you are between 18 & 24 years old, drive a beater VW, wish you could buy my ride, but don't have the money, and probably never will. I am a lot older than you, probably spent more on Ferraris I bought than you will ever make in your lifetime, I've owned 14 VWs, 7 race cars from Formula V to Trans-Am. I bought the 16V just to rally, but liked it so much to drive, I put it on the street. Do not delete my ad again.



      TO WHICH I REPLIED:


      No I’m 46, have a masters degree in Information Security, I drive a 1980 IMMACULATELY RESTORED Scirocco.

      I did not delete your ad. Nor will I delete your hard drive, although I could but I will not because that is not me.
      I am an honorable person, 2nd Dan in Shotokan Karate and a VW driver.

      I can guess how it got deleted, because about 45 Scirocco owners conversed about this and probably considered it a scam since we have factual evidence that there were no recycled bodies. You have a mechanics legend and a gorgeous 16v, but nothing more.



      Here is my beater VW:
