I adore them as cars, but really I want a manual one, probably fuel injected, in a different colour.

If he makes it home in this then we'll have to look for a second star in the East! 

 

I did advise him to have it trailered, but some people have a masochistic streak I guess!

Matt came, and drove off in it at approx 3pm. I have tried contacting him a few times to find out if he made it back safely, but no response.......

 

Perhaps he is currently being questioned re going equipped for burglary with a Pineapple and cable ties   :mrgreen:

Annnnnd I'm back home, knackered and covered in muck.
Had a minor ftp due to running out of electric which was diagnosed as a dead alternator, I made it as far as Blyth, so not too bad!!
Phone battery died on me due to googling mk2 scirocco electrics many times.
Overall a pleasant turd of a car which given some time with a multimeter and more electric should transform it into a more reliable steed.
Thanks to Terry the aa man who frequents this forum occasionally.
Top day all round, pics to follow

A1 Southbound would seem to be the answer :mrgreen: 8)

Oh wait, you mean Blyth as in Northeast Blyth?

Yep there's another Blyth, Notts South Yorkshire Border near Worksop. Famous for.....hmm....well it was home to Harworth colliery (scabs main) which supplied the coal to Mallard the day it set the steam speed record. This means that Matt actually made it run for 56 miles without an FTP - more than I ever managed. This guy is a winner!

Depends on your point of view. I loved smoking about town in it, but there again, I have NEVER driven it without either FTP or failure to start. 

 

It was one of those cars you just love to hate, but my guess is that it's not seen a motorway in 20 years at least. 

 

Look forward to the updates on progress.

I think that's the LMAO part of the description.

Anyway, it sounds like the new owner is git pleased with his new motor, and is enough of a VW nut to get it sorted out, so all is well.
