Wheels in the Grass

1987 VW Scirocco, Niagara Falls, N.Y.

This 1987 VW Scirocco is sitting in a lot in the Town of Niagara. So what, you say? Well, to some (like me) the Scirocco was a special car. This one is one of the second generation cars, but I was the proud owner of a Mark I — a 1978 which to this day is still  my favorite of all the cars I’ve owned over the years. The Mark IIs grew a bit in size and lost a little in looks, I’d say, but they were all great fun to drive. A old Mark I is still on my list of things to buy when I hit the Lotto. A few years ago, VW reintroduced the Scirocco — but, alas, it’s still not available in North America.
