      About damn time.

      Had my first sighting in a long time this morning. On 280 south through San Jose I saw a nice black SLC Corrado. Looked lowered, had an exhaust and blacked out tail lights. I waved and you nodded back.

      Today around 5:45pm on W, I spotted a BMP 20thae. All I was able to make out was a stubby antenna, missing votex roof spoiler, tint, and an oem vw "GTI" rear plateframe.

      Was it a votex front and was it slammed? It sounds like the dude that goes to SCC.

      One new sighting: Parked on King St. in Redwood City this morning and yesterday morning a red MK3 Jetta with a Vento badge and a Neuspeed badge on the rear and a VR6 badge on the front grill. It was lowered with exhaust and some sot of aftermarket wheels, didn't catch what kind tho. I think I've seen it before, but I can't remember where. If you're on here, nice Jetta!!

      Sorry, I was messing with my iPod rolling through the parking lot. Right before you spotted me, Secret highbeamed me driving down Greenhaven.

      Friday night, a Prelude and an RSX blew past me on Highway 80 racing. Two minutes later, the Prelude was missing half of his bumper and the RSX was on the center median. Ha ha... tools.

      OK, so a very interesting sighting today at lunchtime by Wells Fargo in Folsom, at East Bidwell and Blue Ravine.

      I roll into the parking lot and here's what I observe:

      hey, its a stock looking silver golf (red/yellow tails)
      its a 2.0 (no motor badge)
      the left rear suspension has a lot of negative camber, hm
      it's got a rear spolier (upper) of some sort, painted to match
      its rolling on Avus wheels, at stock 4x4 ride height, on stock tires
      its got a jetta front end!

      someone's lease return? salvage? seemed a rather odd combination of parts. really a gti because the hatch was swapped out?

      you tell me

      Sweet, but for some reason I don't believe you. Which one were you?


    35. 02-23-2005 10:20 PM #35
      Today right before 1pm or so... I was waiting to turn left onto arden by watt ave when an imola yellow 20th drives by followed by a mk3 gti vr6 (either black or blue I can't remember) Didn't look like they knew eachother maybe just coincidence.

      The 20th AE looked stock with a florida liscense plate. The mk3 was lowered with what looked like some stockies painted black, and an exhaust.
