Sporty Lookin Golf? 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco

Volkswagen launched their second generation of the front-wheel-drive Scirocco in 1981 with updated styling by VW stylist Herbert Schäfer (the previous generation was penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro), but the name was still tricky to spell or pronounce. See-rock-o?  Sree-rock-o? See-rr-ah-ko? See-roo-koo?  It doesn’t really matter, because what Scirocco meant in plain English was “sporty looking Golf”.  Find this 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco offered for $2900 in Gainsville, GA via craigslist.

1986 Volkswagen Scirocco 8-valve

Running and a very fun drive. Starts up fast and shifts nicely. The interior is completely original, and is well maintained for the age of the car. Recently replaced clutch disc, pressure plate, rear main seal, resurfaced flywheel, shift rod bushings. 166000 miles on the odometer. 

This VW gets a lot of looks and is really quite different to drive.
