      16v's sure are bringing the $$$ lately, wonder if they'll keep going up?

      Dunno if this has anything to do with actual value or just insurance...
      My 'Rocco is insured through Hagerty and I got an email with the link to their online appraiser. They only list 16Vs though (Sorry!). Here's their breakdown:

      #4 - Fair: $8400
      #3 - Good: $13000
      #2 - Excellent: $21600
      #1 - Concours - $33000

      They've got to be kidding, right? I'd say mine is in the "good" category and I have the value at less than their "fair" value. The gorgeous silver 16V on BaT is currently at $15,000 with a couple days left. That other BaT one from October last year went for $28,000.

      Time to up the value on our policies, or just mumbo-jumbo?

      I looked at the ratings system on Haggerty. It's clear that what I would consider a uniquely gorgeous all-original "survivor" would only qualify as "good" based on things we readily accept, like incorrect wheels, cracked dash, etc... If I judge my cars honestly, most are barely "fair", which surprised me.

      At first glance, most of us would rate the silver BAT car as "excellent", but the rating system grades it "good" (cracked dash, tweaked bumper, incorrect parts, etc...). Interestingly, the current price is right in the "good" range, which suggests that the rating system reflects reality well.
      It's hard for me to know exactly what these things cost me. I'm guessing a LOT, but I like them, so that's that.

      But rational minds will not prevail with this car so “good” condition is going out the window regardless welcome to the BaT Zone. Doodoodoodoodoo.....

      I would say mine is fair to good. It needs teardrop wheels, fuel system gone through, the glove box lid replaced and the driver's seat reupholstered. It could use a few paint touch ups on the bumper covers, the hood and one fender flare inside. It also needs de-fumigating from when mice invaded the interior.

      Mine has a crack-free dashboard and I have every original part except the wheels. I did swap to the "Scirocco" steering wheel center cover when it was new and mice chewed up the original "VW" center cover. The "VW" centers have been NLA for years. I tried to get a new one a few years ago when I decided to put mine back to original. VW Classic Parts may have produced more since then but I haven't checked again.

      The BAT Scirocco has a nicer driver's seat, a VW radio (not even an option in '88 according to the dealer) and a nice glove box lid with the lever still attached. That's to be expected on a 41K mile car though.

      I was researching the under-dash covers on VW Classic Parts last night and noticed that they are making the "VW" steering wheel center covers again. Nick in Greece (NK Automotive on eBay) has some so I ordered one. Score!
