1979 Volkswagen Scirocco

I really should have posted this over the summer, but it's been somewhat forgotten until now. 
This 1979 Volkswagen Scirocco was sitting in a driveway in Fairview, PA for nearly 10 years before finally being dragged out to the lawn with a "For Sale" sign on it. The car had well over 100,000 miles on it, but was essentially all original. It was very complete, with original paint, interior, and so on, though the engine had ceased to run at some point in the last decade. The seller was offering it for $300 or best offer, which I nearly instantaniously agreed to pay. However, the very evening I decided I wanted to purchase this car, our '74 Porsche was involved in a very bad accident and the prospect of another project car became unreasonable. It was sold about a week later. There are very few of these Mk1 Sciroccos left. Hopefully this one found a good home.
