This Is Another Vehicle I Wont Recommend To Anyone , Again Because I Want Them All. — A cult classic pocket rocket. Ive owned tons of 8v and only 1 16v and i gotta say...how can u get so much fun outta 90-124hp..how can a stock 4 banger pushin 124hp leave a 5.0 lx mustang behind ? No their car wasnt crap. Sciroccos rock, hence the nickname "rocco's"

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Classic easy to build up pocket rocket..cheap

Great Car For What It Is And What You Can Buy Them For — just a fun, light car which with slight mods (swaybars, bilsteins, and lowered springs) can go around corners amazingly well. super nimble and tossable. BUT very rough, noisy, and a little old so all sorts of things go wrong from time to time.

Pros: fun, cheap, cheap mods, light, economical

Cons: old, electrical, noisy, rough

Definitely A Volkswagen Lovers Car. — its awesome for its year. just turn the wheel and it goes where i point it without hesitation. the lack of ABS and PS makes it a car you HAVE to drive or it will drive you (: the 1.8 8v inline 4 has only about 85-95 horses but its got some fun low end torque and weighs only about 2,000 pounds (: when you want a new engine, they can be found relatively cheap and they are all bullet proof (:

Pros: not many of them around and you can always find someone who has never heard of them (:

Cons: not many ^_^

Basic German Spots Car — My first new car. GTI performance in a better looking package. This car was extremely attractive but very utilitarian. You could pack an unbelievable amount into this car. Fuel mileage on the 1.8 litre motor was spectacular- often in excess of 40 mpg on the highway. The interior was a bit spartan - this was a low-end sports car, but was comfortable and functional. Handling was surprisingly stiff and performance of the engine and chassis showed off all the borrowed parts from the Porsche 924 prominently. I'd still be driving it if I hadn't sold it to go to school.

Pros: appearance, performance for the dollar, capacity

Cons: spartan, unbalanced (nose-heavy), lack of options

My 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco — hey hey, my 1987 volkswagen scirocco was one of the the most fun cars to drive, that ever owned. I had the 1.8 gtx model that came with all the gti interior, and also had the trip computer which also told me my mpg and ave speed. The engine was infact the gti engine that was used in the mk 1 golf (a legendary car), so the scirocco was not short of power at-all.The one and only problem i found with the car was that i found the head room was quite low, but this does not at-all lower my feelings for what i think is an under-rated, fantastic, good looking and fast 80s sports car.

Pros: good looking, practical, quite fast

Cons: not alot of head room

Great Little Car — Great car, economical,simple, tough,beautiful. Really fun to drive, still can beat most of today's car. Really easy to modify, you still have parts real cheap. Really easy to repair, just a few bugs but they are always the same. Great handling and acceleration with a modded suspension. I wll never sell this car

Pros: Will surpirse a lot of people

Cons: Electrical gremlins...

Rocco Rocks — The VW Scirocco is a marvelous automobile. It's got all the comforts and known features of a Golf, only it looks so much better than a Golf! Power was a bit down on mine, only being a 1.8 8V, but the 16V is great fun to drive! It handles really well as well.

Pros: Styling, quality, feel

Cons: cramped rear seats, only heat from the two center blowers in the cockpit
