1978 Volkswagen Scirocco  "Leela" - Owned by Andy Oldham  -Sheffield, England,
 (the car lives in L.A though)
Owned: 4 1/2 years (so far)
What I love most about the car: Looks, Giugiaro scored a blinder with this one! I love mk1's, they're just perfect!
Fondest memory of the car: Driving from Seattle WA to San Jose CA in one day,
 and being passed by only 1 car (that had curious flashing red and blue lights on top) in 1000 miles.
 She only had a 1600cc engine at the time, but has really long gearing, and cruised pretty happily at 80-90mph all day long.

Eric Dion's 1980 Scirocco- Carneys Point, New Jersey - in process of some incredible modifications.
...perfect time to change out all those dry and rotten seals, for some brand new ones!
"2.0 16v with be pistons and rods, port and polished fully built head 
with high rev springs, 280 schrick cams, hyabusa itbs, with patatron 
megasquirt. I'm having the whole car repainted, rust taken out, and 
rabbit arches grafted for corrado widened steelies. The paint I'm 
keeping a secret but I'll shoot you some pics when it's all done."
Can't wait to see it finished, Eric

"It is a 1980 Scirocco ‘Storm’ which was a UK special edition Gli  
with leather and front spoiler plus a few other details.
 I have owned the car for about 15 years

It’s a great toy!"
