You Need This: Save This Scirocco

Who wants to buy a car for a good cause—that cause being saving said car. The seller of this turbocharged Volkswagen Scirocco says if it’s not gone by the end of January, it’ll be headed to the crusher. The cost of saving this fine autocrosser? $3000. Bonus: It comes with a matching tire trailer.

Location, location, location....if this car was on either coast it would be scooped up before the "ink" dried on that ad. 

Love the car, and this build, but I am told that at 6 ft 4 I don't really fit in this car.

You may want to sit in one.  There is a surprising amount of space in these.  Now 6'4" is pretty tall.......so YMMV, but I'd check one out before ruling them out.

77 scirocco was my 2nd car as a youth. I always loved the shape.

My college roommate was 6' 5" and drove a '79 Scirocco, he fit inside it pretty well.  Of course, you didn't want to be the guy sitting in the back seat behind him as there was zero knee room in that spot.  smiley

 

edited to add:  I'm always annoyed by car ads where the owner threatens to junk the car out if it doesn't sell by a certain date...do people really do that to a good car, or are they just using some sort of weird scare tactic selling method?

3k or I crush it?  Really??  Sorry I move on from those types. Go ahead and toss your $$$ in the dumpster. 

When ever I see an add that says pay me x amount or I will crush the car I walk away.  

Sounds like the kid in the sandbox that if you don’t let win threatens to take his toys and leave.  I say go ahead and leave.

From the ad it sounds like they are parting it out in hopes of selling the items individually and crushing the shell if they can't get it sold - also sounds like a hard move date, those always suck.
