      I'm liquidating everything and getting one new car for now. That's the reason for this sale.

      1981 Scirocco
      1.7 CIS
      5 speed
      211k miles
      Raceland coilovers. Less than 10k miles on them.
      Raceland header.
      Brand new battery and fuel filter. They're about 5 days old.

      Good:
      The car runs and drives. No leaks. It made it to h2o and back last year with no issues.
      Interior is pretty clean. It's all stock inside except for a Pioneer cd player. I have the original radio also.
      I have about 6 boxes of spare parts that came with the car, so they'll go with the car. This includes new axles, brakes, and extra CIS fuel distributor, and a whole lot of other random stuff. Easily about $500 worth of parts.
      It's got a newer fuel tank in it. This was replaced about 2 years ago.

      Bad:
      It's got some rust. I patched the door holes with Pabst cans. Mostly because I thought it looked awesome.
      It's a little testy to start when it's cold. Probably just needs a new cold start injector.
      Battery light is on. It's the infamous "blue wire exciter" circuit. I may or may not fix this before the sale.

      I've got a couple pics right now, but I can get more. It's on bottlecap's right now, but I also have the original man hole covers. The tires on those are shot, but they do hold air. The Konigs in som of the pictures are long gone.

      Looking for $1,700 obo. I'm negotiable. I know it's not worth a lot, but I'd like to get what I think is fair for it. The only trades I'd be interested in is an air cooled, or possibly a MkI/MkII.

      Do you have pics of the usual rust spots and the engine bay?

      I can get them. All structural points on this car are solid. The rear beam mounts were rebuilt a little over a year ago.

      Bumping this back up. I've really got the bug to get an air cooled now, so this has to go.

      The front bumper has been shortened and is back on the car. The rear is still off. I haven't shortened it yet, though I was planning on it.

      Also, the fuel pump decided to give up the ghost, but I'll be putting a new one in within the next week.

      I gotta ask because I'm annoying but do you know the specs on the wheels?
