WHY I LOVE MY SCIROCCO

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

WILL PUNCHARD

‘I bought my 1991 VW Scirocco in 2007 as my daily driver for a 40-mile com­mute for just £700. The 1.8 in­jected en­gine eas­ily achieves 40mpg plus on a run and it’s been to Europe sev­eral times. I had to sell it in early 2009, but I bought it back in 2010 and have since re­sprayed it and in­cor­po­rated a few up­grades. It will be pressed into ser­vice this April as my wed­ding car and I of­ten com­mute into work in it dur­ing sum­mer. I’ve be­come very in­volved with the owner’s club (The Scirocco Reg­is­ter); I run the mem­ber­ship and help or­gan­ise events. The club is full of en­thu­si­as­tic own­ers and I have made some fan­tas­tic friends. I’ll never part with this car now, be­cause it’s fun, re­li­able and very prac­ti­cal.’
