      I got beside a black R32 on Valley on the way home from work Friday, gave 'em the nod. Saw some kind of a tuned MKII going the opposite direction in traffic on Pleasant Valley, but all I got a glimpse of was the single-rounds.

      I fell off my Mt Bike and landed on a sharp edged rock that was only a little bigger than a softball. It put a 3.5 inch gash along the side of my knee. No significant muscle damage, just sliced the fatty tissue and bled alot.

      Ouch! Sorry to hear about your injury. You must not have needed all that blood anyway

      It was just Jamie's GTI, he was on a bike ride.

      Its sort of like Medieval blood letting, you just have to get rid of the bad blood sometimes. I was a bit worried until we got it to stop, it was bleeding pretty profusely, and I was still halfway up the side of the mountain. We got it to stop though, and I was able to finish the ride. It was easier to get on my bike and try and ride down then to try and walk it. I was in the ER for 3-4 hours waiting to get stitched up. I guess everyone was taking advantage of the nice weather and going out and getting hurt.

      Joe, Jamie, Frank, Pam, and a couple that came out from Foggy Bottom that we had met that morning.

      This is exactly why I prefer the stationary bikes and horseback riding. I guess I like the thought of the horse doing the work and me just hitching a ride

      Maybe when the weather gets nicer we should all go on a float trip down the river - could be fun

      Cool, I have never done the rear rotors on a MKIII VR car, I didn't realize the bearings were pressed into the rotors. I will ask around and see where a good place to have that done would be.

      If you know of a machine shop in the area, that is what he needs. I don't know of any in the Winchester area. The bearings on the rears don't get pressed in, just the races.(I've had to replace mine on my rear disks twice) They also have bearing packing machines at most good machine shops as well, they make things sooo much easier.

      Our friend Billy works at a machine shop in Winchester over behind the GE plant off of Valley. We go there all the time. Ask Jeff(JKnowledge) all about it.

      They only do large contract work, not piecemeal.

      I'm sure they can do just about anything. But you'll have to wait for Jeff to answer that question cause the machine shop is a whole new world to me. I go over there and it like they are speaking another language!! I leave all the technical stuff to the boyz!!

      I was in town this weekend and saw not a single tuned VW

      Where is everyone?

      I actually drove my 337 this weekend too. I gave her hell for two days. No she goes to sleep for a while.

      Looks like ill have to get a hundred heads together. Hahaha.

      Back to the search.

      P.S. stallinbenji, I can press races at my house if you need me too, I can pack bearings too, or at least show you how.

      I've been told that the NAPA on Loudon street does a good job a decking heads, I dont know if they can handle a P&P or not.

      NAPA is where I'm taking my head when it gets reconditioned. I called around and they came highly recommended. After talking to them, they may be good-ole-boys, but they know what they're talking about, and the prices seemed reasonable to me.

    22. 01-04-2005 08:56 AM #162
      Same here. I have a 1.6L diesel head that I am having them recondition. My friend that works at the machine shop briefly discussed yesterday also highly recommends them.

      Bump 4 Winchester!

    24. 01-05-2005 11:36 AM #164
      BTW, are there any VW shops still in/near Winchester? I know the one over by Pep Boys/Jubal Early isn't around anymore, and I didn't even see much activity at PTG when I drove past.

    25. 01-05-2005 11:49 AM #165
      not that i know of, I met Arthur at the place behind Pep Boys like a week before they closed. Now the only shop I know of that will work on my vw is the one at my house I really wish that i had a lift.

      Is Chicklo on Rt. 11 South still open? It looks awfully empty when I drive by. There used to be a guy on Rt. 11 north too, who ran a repair shop behind his house.

      I know Arthur and a couple of my other friends do work on their cars in a garage they rent. I've heard NEVER go to the dearlership. I have stumbled across some places in West VA that do VW stuff. Like this place I found on the way to The Charlestown Race Track.

      Chicklo got shut down and they stopped doing VW stuff a LONG time ago, way before they shut down!!

      Hmmmmm I wonder what VW/Audi will look like in the future. I don't really like the body style of the Newer cars. They are starting to somewhat resemble hondas. It's kinda scary.
