Hi there - I'm new to the forum and am posting to share this beauty that I got my hands on recently, and also to ask for some advice on maintenance and repairs (as I am not very experienced with these old VWs).

The car is in incredible shape overall, inside and out. When it is up and running, it runs and sounds great. I am, however, experiencing a significant choke at start up and associated cloud of white smoke. It doesn't seem to only occur in colder temperatures. I've read that When white smoke occurs at cold start, and then disappears as the engine warms up, the most common causes are fouling deposits around piston rings and/or cylinder glazing. Do you think that sounds like a likely cause for this model of car?
