Hi!

After about 24 years without a 'rocco I'm thinking of getting back into it again. I'm on the lookout for a Scala or GT2, tempted by carb one for simplicity. Back in the day I had a few GT's and MK1 Storm (wish I'd kept it) and did many thousands of miles in them.

hi back and welcome. if your not too bothered about it being a better model than the carb or basic model, then this car should be right up your street, reason being- lots of history to this and a very well known car with us register members.
see what ya think... i would of been tempted myself, but have a 20v turbo instead, and starting to become attached to it now....

carb is certainly not more simple if its the pierburg! get one fitted with a weber for more simplicity if you want to go that route.
