what all do i need?

If you are going to go anywhere, better make sure your tranny can handle the load. Gear changes for the power hungry should be talked about here. Is that a LSD I see in your pocket?

Too bad you were so far away, we have all the parts cars you'd ever need. Well let me know if you ever take a roadtrip. You'd even get a place to stay-and possibly mechanical help too.

It's too bad, though, that I dont know enough Cabby owners within a realistic dstance. It would be cool to organize a get together, like the Scirocco owners have Cincy every year. Of course, there was one nut that drove from California to go to Cincy. The year we went there were over 60 Sciroccos there. Hmmm, there is a really cool pic of it, lemme see if I can find it.

I am waiting until I can get a nice MKI. In Mars red or grey. With a sunroof. And a 16V conversion.
I'm not picky, am I?

Here is an arial shot of all the cars spelling our Scirocco. This actually made it in the VW museum as the largest gathering of Sciroccos since they left the factory.
