As some of you know, a little over 2 weeks ago my '83 got totaled in round-a-bout. At first I started looking for a beetle, then I drove one and decided they aren't for me. So I continued my search for a new rocco. I found many nice mk2's, but they were either out of my price range or already sold, and there was no hope for a mk1 at all. Until yesterday, when out of the blue my friend texted me with a link to a completely OEM 1980 rocco for 1,900. The post was a day old so surely I figured the car would be gone, but I decided to call and luckily it was still available! After talking with the guy for a while, I realized that he was the same guy I bought my lowering springs from (small world, eh?). So today I went and looked at it/drove it. The car is phenomenal. Zero wheel play, shocks are stiff, all the dashlights work, tracks straight. And there isn't one modification to this car (minus the aftermarket radio). So I promptly bought the car for 1,800 and fell in love with it.
A few problems as of right now, no corner or fog lights when headlights are on (as in the marker lights don't turn on and no rear fog lights).
Slowest speed wiper setting doesn't work
And the hatch dome light turns on with the headlights (not sure if that's normal).
Here she is when I bought her.
First mod! Remove that ridiculous roof rack.
Driving her home!
And now she's home, safe and sound. (Poor mk2 in the background)
And of course, the dreams have already started...
