MK1 Scirocco's in NZ.
« on: June 01, 2013, 04:24:10 pm »
How many are there here in NZ still alive, whether sat in storage or currently driven? Auto or manual?

Please shed some light fellow enthusiasts.

Ones I know of already are:

- Neils ex silver
- Mikes Riviera blue (the one I want to save and restore one day)
- Mikes other one or two?
- Tristans Work in progress
- Tristans old one (now a shell)

'77 MK1 Golf GTI - Current project restoration

'89 MK2 Golf GTI 8v - Fully restored

'97 MK3 Golf VR6 Highline - Super Charged

'06 MK5 Golf GTI DSG - Family daily duties

No I don't think so. Isn't that the guy I sold my Mk1 too? Jeremy will know.

Yea I think so. It sat out at haumoana for years which didnt help with the rust. There was receipts in it for a $4k engine rebuild

That one was rusty every where. I started stripping it, saw how much rust there was and decided to sell it

Also lets not forget there are two models, Mk1 and Mk1.5 (or what ever you call it), like Mk1 Golfs.

It's just a facelift, key points changed are single wiper, turn signals, an then it's just cosmetic and engine options. Interesting that half the cars are pre facelift and half are post. The palmy car is pre facelift.

Pre or post? I thought that the plastic bumpers came on the later cars?
