I am Innocence, the latest addition to Eric's water-cooled VW Karmann fleet. I was born in Osnabrück in 1990, shipped out to the States (sold by Stohlman of Tysons Corner), where I spent 8 years before returning to Germany, where I stayed for 2 years before I jumped across the pond to Great Britain, Scotland, to be precise.

Having lived and moved around Aberdeen for 3 years, Eric collected me on September 29 2003. He had flown all the way from Birmingham to Aberdeen. I can still remember quite well the journey to my new home, flying at a slightly lower altitude cool.

My role was to be Eric's new daily driver and a "Rocco Parts Carrier" (RPC), the latter of which I have been dutifully fullfilling for both my older brothers Roodster and Stürmchen wave. The daily driver bit stopped after one year grin. I now even have my own garage.

Eric has sworn to keep me fairly standard, but couldn't resist to at least modify some minor things, and I'm sure that's not the end of it. Well, if you exclude lowering, alloys, exhaust system, interior bits, and a few more I am fairly standard grin. Anyway, at least all the maintenance work done in my own garage involves original parts. Like my two brothers I hate having to visit a commercial repair garage.

I have already been to several meets in the UK and abroad (Germany, Netherlands), where I have even won 5 trophies so far! I have even been to the Nürburgring a few times, too! During one of those visits, however, I did crash badly, hitting a wall with my right rear end, the wall just wouldn't give! I have been expertly repaired since by a fellow member of the German Sciroccoforum.

In a way, I'm the special one of the two Type 53s that Eric has got in the sense that Eric refers to me as the most grown-up and refined, despite my lovely G60 grunt cool.
