Holy shit, I've finally been spotted! I just logged in for the first time in a while - that was me! :-D

Just had it MOTd today, and it passed with a couple of (minor) advisories, so I'm chuffed.

red mk2 rocko headed up parsons hill in kings norton. monday i think? :scratch: very nice. :ok:
i tooted em i was in a black bmw and gave a wave.
this ring a bell to anyone? would be nice to organise a mini meet in south bham as i really dont see very many rockos in this neck of the woods.
This could have been me...
In 2012/13 I worked in Kings Norton just off Eckershall Rd & would have been heading towards home(Hall Green) if you spotted me going 'up Parsons hill.
If it was me, Its a G' Scala,clear indicators, kamei mesh grill, top & bottom eyebrow spoilers on. May have either had my silver ra's on or my black sebrings(mood depending).
That's if is was me...


1990 Tornado Red Scala.

I work at pilkingtons in Eckersall Road and have been driving from Redditch to there every day for 31 years most days in a Scirocco.

It's very very rare that I ever see any other Sciroccos on my journey.
