Good point. But has the dual wipers and earlier turns. Metal bumpers are only on early ones 75/76 from what I've seen. I wonder if there was a mix in 77/78 as vw changed over?

Maybe its like the equivalent of my Mk1 GTI? My car still is the older car (small rear lights, older dash and seats) but has the later plastic bumpers.

Interesting, any other info on this Wgtn blue one?  I wonder if Lane has one or two tucked up under his covers!?  ;D

Pretty sure lane would only dismantle something that was un- salvageable . He has the preservation gene.

So whether chopped or stored or driven or yet undiscovered, we are looking at approx 12 mk1 Scirocco's in NZ?

Just realised my posts hit 1111  ;D

Nik, answer is yes. I have an itch to restore one, prob the next car to own and work on since the mk2 is not far off completion now, should be complete next year. I want something a bit older next (as you get older you start to appreciate older cars i guess) and the mk1 Scirocco is for me the perfect candidate, have really grown fond of them of late and in all aspects really.

Time will tell...

How many are there here in NZ still alive, whether sat in storage or currently driven? Auto or manual?

On the road
- Wellington  blue
- Palmy North silver
- Mikes Riviera blue, gls, facelift, ex Canterbury. Was on the road when Dennis sold it.

Off the road
- Neils ex silver, gls, facelift  Now Marino yellow, ex Canterbury, soon to be on the road
- Mikes other one or two? , 1 is ex 00quattro00 silver, rusty.
- Tristans Work in progress, pre facelift, green, ex Blenheim, 16v upgrade.
- Tristans old one (now a shell) with Brendon. Long term Auckland car, red.
- Lane has wrecked 2
- Vw rally 1x 75 ts, plus 1x parts car

Total approximate 12.

Any more out there?

Pretty sure he's done dual wiper conversion to single as well. Has an awesome interior in it.

Tristans ex red car. T swapped the front guards to give his green  car pre facelift guards. Shell looks average but better than it looks.
