I was surprised to see this Callaway Turbo Scirocco #10 come up for sale on Facebook and Craigslist in October of 2020 for $17.5K. I recognized the yellow Callaway Valve Cover under the hood. Yes, I saw those VWVortex threads from the early 2000 in real time then via CALAWAYMK2 (Uncle Rocco or Steve S.) from Michigan. However, it was being offered by a new owner late last year. Looks like it changed hands. I thought to myself that I would gamble as much as $10K for it. I let it go. Then I saw it listed on Bring A Trailer with no reserve. After some due diligence and research, my last minute bid held up. Holy shit, I just became owner of a rare Callaway Turbo Scirocco which appears to be one of 36. I am fortunate to get all the Callaway Cars paperwork and receipts kept by most of the owners that tracked from CT, NJ and MI.
