My 1978 Volkswagen Scirocco "Sidewinder II"

I really apologize for the poor quality of this photo. All I can say is it was worse before I worked on it.

 

This photo was taken after I'd owned my VW for quite a while. As you can see, I didn't take care of my cars back then. The lettering along the bottom of the door is screwed up and the air dam is broken. Still, it was a great car and served me well. I drove it 100,000 miles and then traded it in on a new Audi Coupe.

 

This was the first car I owned with cruise control. It didn't come from VW; it came from Sears and I installed it myself. These days we take cruise control for granted.
