Since I've had my Mk I on the road, I've had three different people come up to me and ask me if I was interested in selling it. One guy followed me for like 5 or 6 miles out of his way!

Re: How many other people does this happen to? (Mk1Racer)

I've been asked a couple of times. Mostly when I pull into the parking lot at work and get out.

Re: How many other people does this happen to? (Mk1Racer)

I JUST got my new tranny (with Quaife) installed on the 16V, and as I drove home, there was bucking and the ever loving silent drift to a parking lot resting place. (you guys know the drill) I had JUST opened the door of the car and was immediately greeted with "Do you want to sell it?". Umm, no...(I had blown out a main fuel line, was dreading a transmission issue obviously) My MkI goes unseen most of the time, except at VW shows where it is more appreciated.

I've had everything from guys approaching me asking me if I wanted to sell it, to notes left under the wiper, to cops pulling me over just to "get a closer look". Fun stuff! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: How many other people does this happen to? (GoKraut)

I had some kid roll up on his skateboard and ask me if that was a 'Shiroko" and then proceeded to tell me that his Mom used to have one when he was a kid......I felt pretty old right then.

When you drive a mk2, you don't get offers to buy, you just get a lot of "I had one of those" or "My buddy had one of those in high school!"

exactly
i had a guy at the humane society where i got my dog talk to me about it and said he was a vw freak
then another guy a few days ago said his buddy had a new one is HS and blah blah blah
