      I tried to find the really good one of Reno- the one of him holding someone pulley at Volksfest. Some dude got in the car and tried to burn the tires but broke a pulley and a belt. It wasn't even his own car!

      Reno was the one to pick up the pulley and hold it for the camera.

      Anywho, here's a shot of him humping a Corrado at said show, and a shot of me in Nashville during a bike trip in March. I'm looking a little rough since I'd been wearing a helmet.

      BUAHAHAHahah...

      I remember that. I'd be livid... but then, no one would be jumping in my car and trying to do a burnout either.

      Right on. I remember that... Poor dude had to have his car towed off the lot. That musta sucked. Hope he wasn't goin' far.


      Put some TyrolSport brake bushings on this past Saturday. So far so good. No huge change, but I've got a case of mushy brakes anyway. Not sure what's up, going to learn how to bleed brakes w/the vag-com I guess. ABS units or somethin'... and bleed the clutch too.

      GOT to cure my brakes.

      Wait- a brake bleed on these cars is done with a vagcom?

      I need to do a fluid flush anyway.

      I'm still figuring it out.

      No, I've never done any brake bleeding w/the vag-com. None of the 4.

      this one... no THIS ONE (emphasis) will be different though. I just heard a rumor that there's a way to do it, have to dig up the directions.

      Basically the car would put you through the windsheild when new... I changed rotors & pads once, think I bled the brakes that day Maybe? And it was just never the same again.

      Anyway... yeah, I hear there's a way to FULLY flush the system using a vag-com. I dunno, it's a rumor, a story told in the dimlit corners of bars & brothels. But I'm going to do some more research.


      Lookin' for a brothel in Jack-town... wish me luck.

      Let me know if you ever find anything out on it. I'd be interested in trying it out.

      I'll let you know if it makes any difference.

      I'm at 123K... I figure it just needs to be done, just in case.

      And I REALLY want my touchy brakes back from 80K ago.

      Flashing their headlights at the 1.6l golf in the left lane on the autobahn...

      You sure they weren't just saying "Hey, move before I put your bumper in your trunk?"

      Humping the rado, humping the rabbit... you really ought to build a gallery out of that. I'm sure there's a niche for that market.

      How about a video series? I am envisioning something similiar to Girls Gone Wild except it would be Reno Gone Wild.

      Now you're talkin'. Different locales, different styles, a little dirty talk. Lil' video editing and you'll be in tha biz.

      Wes has just sent word that the B6 Passat is in Memphis for the next couple days. I think they've got a few of them there, actually.

      I'm not a fan of the interior. I like the front, but the rear doesn't do it for me.

      I'm not a fan of larger cars in general, so that's got something to do with it I'm sure. However, the interior, when trimmed in wood, just looks very cheap. I'm not too sure about the overall dash layout, either.

      yeah Steven said the interior is something he would have to get used to.
