      Went deep sea fishing and got something huge, eventually snapped the line. The deckhands said my line was beat to hell from either a blacktip or a hammer head thrashing their tail. ****ing shark week; now all I want is to catch a shark. I have the perfect wall in my living room for a twelve footer.

      I know there are a lot of great mechanics in the area. Most that know a lot more than I. But, I just wanted to throw out that I am willing to help anyone that needs it. I've done motor swaps, clutch installs, countless suspension installs/tweaks, maintenance, etc... I know a bit about overhauling motors, but I've only done it once in the past. Diagnoses is not my forte, but I can always lend a hand. Anyways, don't be afraid to ask (in advance so I can make the plans). I'd be glad to help out if I have the time. I carry a decent tool set with me at all times.

      P.S.S. I am going to need a second vehicle. In hopes of not having to deal with shady dealerships and ridiculous interest charges, I'm hoping one of you guys can help me out. I don't have a lot of money saved up, so I wouldn't be able to pay cash for something. I would like if I could find something that I can pay payments on. Looking for something with a manual transmission, a/c, and working heater. Also, in decent condition. Open to any make/model. Any elp would be greatly appreciated.
      Glad to hear you got the job. I am looking for someone to help me work on the Cabby! See you at the DH. Have a safe trip.

      Gas pedal cable went to the auto transmission than back up to the throttle body. Thoughts? Would take some modifying to make fit... I may have cut the cable off the standard....

      Other than the motor swap and that massive turbo, It looked better when Cort owned it.

      My opinion is I preferred it with the true S3 motor... To me changing that ruined the car... And don't get me started on the wheels.. That poor s3 has never had a good set of wheels on it and that makes morio sad...

      The motor doesn't bother me although I am curious how the thing drives as that turbo is STUPID big.

      I agree on the wheels, have not hated any of the wheels on the car but don't love them.

      He wouldn't take less than $12,000 and we find them with newer engines for less than what he was offering, but we tried! That truck is also pretty close to original so I respect his asking price but its not for us. I really think Lauren will find her truck at the next Mecum Auto Auction in Dallas that we're planning to attend.

      Performance VW disagrees with you. I made "The Best Wheels" Centerfold Poster.

      By the way, I bought tickets for H2o this weekend. I got Jake's ticket too.

      It's only 315 bucks round trip. C'mon, I don't want to be the only Austinite there this year.

      Just saw this from the last page. You need to come with us to the National Sea Shore. We can camp on the beach one night and then stay in a condo the next night for cheap. (like less than $200 a night divided by 4 or 5 people). Away from all the tourist isht and yes your truck can make it down the beach b/c this beast made it

      ......uh oh....what's this about F1 not happening next year? They are talking about it right now on the Jeff Ward show on KLBJAM radio.....something about comptroller and tax funds not allocated "legally" .......... anybody else hearing this?

      Something along the lines of cota getting burned on this deal but i'm only half a$$ listening and can't find anything on news sites to back it up. Anybody have any idea what this is all about? I just heard "F1 looks to be dead in Austin" so it made me post this ........

      update sounds like the $25 million promised could now get pulled and not given ..... hopefully there will be an article soon to make sense of all of this but every call right now is talking about if F1 will really happen.

      All the news for COTA today says that the last of the tickets went on sale and that American Le Mans will have a race on the track for 2013...nothing about it not happening.

      Just mentioned the $25 million promised may now not be given resulting in the death of COTA ....its all radio talk right now so don't take anything posted to heart yet. Its a radio show and they're trying to get somebody from F1 on the phone.

      Ok Ok, its now clear what they're talking about. Susan Combs the comptroller is again stating the following " race first, then we'll pay." meaning, the $25 million allocated tax payer dollars would not be given until after the 2012 race, but COTA and Bernie are demanding the money up front.

      Its all back and forth about NEXT YEAR's race b/c this year's race is definitely happening.

      sorry to scare ya. I was finishing up some emails with the radio streaming and it just hooked me in.

      I'm sure if he were dumping it on the ground with some BBS RS on it, the feedback would be more positive.

      Haha, that's what I was like too man. It was radio hype that made it worse that it sounded, but the fact remains that money is still up in the air. My guess is we'll give in and just give them the cash so we can have F1 again next year and the next...and the next.

      Bring it!!!! Even if its not the R, Jake and I have talked for years about doing a beach trip with some local dubbers. Jake, his brother Paul and Cort did a trip a few years back. There were some funny ass shots of Cort somehow finding his way into the trunk of Jakes MKIII Jetta

      September or even November could be ideal to get a group to go camping.

      I am playing indoor soccer tonight at 8:00 but I did plan to stop by afterwards to say hello. Alex if you're still around I'll make sure to chat with ya about detailing more.

      Mark, are you in a league? Or just play with friends/random people? My company plays in a softball league but i want to try to find a baseball league for next season. I also want to hit up a lot of disc golf courses. I already packed my discs so i dont forget them, haha. Really want to start being more active while I'm there.
