I used to know of a V reg storm in the black/brown ETB 279V registered Aug 1979 and not taxed since 1992. if anyone wants to know that for any sort of record of the cars
Thanks Steve, that's helpful.

I'm trying to gather some data on Storms registered in 1979 and that could well be one of the ones missing from the list.

Big ask but I don't suppose you'd recall if it was a 4 or 5 speed gearbox...?

Nice one Chris, will do.

Is it a 4 speed gearbox?

Thank you edmundator, appreciate your comments.

There is a photograph of COJ 559V on page 2 of this thread. It is definately on a MK1 Scirocco. The badge on the back is a Storm badge although it doesn't appear to have the right frontspoiler. The spoiler could have been damaged and removed. But if you know it's not a Storm I'll discount it.

In respect of FPF 623V, your post at the top of page 3 states that "I was sold this as a GLI, but it is not unknown for Storms to be called GLI on the logbook. It is the right colour for a Storm and has the front spoiler and a black leather interior, although I have no idea how much of it is original." If you're now saying that it's definately a Storm, regarless of what the logbook states or uncertainty about its originality, then I'll take it as read.

FPF 702V was first registered on 16 January 1980 so doesn't belong on the list of 79's.

Are you aware of any 40th event for the Storm or do members not generally bother?
There seems to be a bit of confusion about the FGF cars.

FGF 702V was the green car (a colour only used on Storms) that I owned and used for spares.

FGF 623V is Marshall's '79 Storm.


I would have thought that a Storm registered on 16th January 1980 is a '79 Storm; to most people the '79/'80 distinction would be factory spec rather than date of UK registration.

The differences are essentially a slightly different tailgate badge and different paint codes.
'79 Storms have Silbergrun met L99N or Schwarz met L98F.
'80 Storms were either Hellblau LK5Z or Noisette brown L89P.

See: http://www.sciroccoregister.co.uk/dr-du ... -exterior/
I applied to the Stiftung AutoMuseum for the data sheet and certificate for my Storm using the service in the link below.

https://www.automuseum-volkswagen.de/en ... heets.html

Interestingly, according to the certificate my Storm is a "532 731, VW Scirocco GLI". The VC5 only states that the Make is a "Volkswagen" and the Model section has no entry next to it. On paper then, officially there is absolutely no reference to the car being anything other than a GLI although it has all the features of a Storm.

It niggles me that neither the official paperwork at the factory nor at the DVLA records show the word "Storm" on them anywhere. Presumably, the early Storms (or maybe even all of them) left Osnabruck as GLI's, and had some additional features added in the UK and were re-badged for marketing purposes?

They would have had to leave the factory as Storms, because the paint colours and interior trim (leather etc) weren't used on any other models. It's purely that the dealers were somewhat less fastidious about how they described the cars when registering, than perhaps they should have been.
