YAK Car Pic of the Day

'78 VW Scirocco, St. Augustine, FL

A personal blast from the past… my 1978 VW Scirocco, posing on the beach at St. Augustine, FL back in the summer of ’79 (yes, it has FL plates — that’s another story in itself!). Going back over 40 years of car ownership, I’m sticking with this VW as the best car I ever owned. It cost me all of $6,500 dollars and change brand new, which at the time seemed like a small fortune. Wait a minute, in 1978 it was a small fortune!
