If you don't mind my asking, how much are you guys paying for your older dub's insurance? I've never owned a car, and the 'Rocco will be the first car I'll ever be paying for my own insurance on. I'm trying to get an idea of what I got myself into, lol. I've tried getting an online quote from Geico.com, but I can't for the 'Rocco cuz it's so old. Any info/tips on getting good and relatively cheap insurance helps! Thanks guys!

note: don't worry, it's not being driven around without insurance, lol...

Hey guys! Yesterday my boyfriend and I purchased a 1978 Scirocco. He owns 3 already - one '75 and two '80's, so you can see where I've gotten my influence from, lol.

I've always been into the whole german engineering scene; my current car is a 1982 528 BMW (runs okay - she has some issues like her left turn signal not working, but most of the stuff is easily repairable) and I'm planning on selling her soon so I can pay my boyfriend back, allowing me to drive my new 'Rocco. Here's some pictures... like my boyfriend said, I now belong to "an organization of people" since I have an older dub, let alone a rare one, lol.

I call her my She-RoccoCollapse )

MY CAR


i'm sorry but i am super excited and what better place to post about my now-non-existant situation than in a VW community?

so i've had my car for about two years. you see, i purchased my car for $500, and it had minor defects that were easily repaired, except i was missing the passenger side latch for my roof. i have been searcing for a latch ever since i got my car. every where i drove, the roof would flap up and down, and you could barely hear my music because it was so loud with the wind coming in, especially on the parkway. and my heat doesn't work, so it's even colder especially now in the winter. and whenever it would rain, the passenger seat would be soaked from the rain getting in. but oh ho ho, no more!

my brother in law went to a junk yard with his younger brother to get parts they needed, and whilst there, they found a car just like mine, and got a latch. yeah! i'm getting it put on today :)

ahh today is going to be a good day

Hey, new here, just sayin' hi.

I drive a 1988 Jetta GLi 1.8 16v on carbs, owned it for almost two years. I have a love/hate relationship with this car.

Behind the cut are some pix, check it out. Carbs plus a few other smaller mods like short shift kit, etc. I have done all work myself. Its currently (yet again) under the knife, but its too cold to tune - literally impossible, so I might be taking it to a shop soon to let them figure out ignition and fuel stuff. Bah.

VWVortex name: "Dellorto 16v"
