Re: daily driver
I've had Sciroccos for daily drivers since 1990, all MK1s. I now
have a dedicated autox Scirocco, but it is still street legal and I
drive it to the events.
Actually I finally bought my first MK2, 197,000 miles. The dash
isn't cracked, the interior looks OK, I am going down to the shop
Wednesday night to go over it and will get it inspected next week.
For the first time since 1990 I am daily driver Sciroccoless, and I
hate driving this 1974 Chevy pick-up truck around. The thing just
won't pull those corners. And that rear wheel drive crap sucks.
However, I was glad I was driving it last night when I whacked a
deer. I only dented the fender of the truck, and it already had a
dent there from the previous owner. Killed the deer instantly. If I
had been in the Rocco, that deer would have come through the
windshield for sure.
