      Not that I think anyone will be doing anything with bags, but if anyone is considering going the air route hit me up. I can usually get a little bit of a discount on most parts. Just throwing it out there.

      The manager worked with me and I was able to get a complete 2 tone paint job over my totally stripped to metal 1975 VW Westfalia Campmobile. The paint job and some minor body work came out excellent. Best of all the price that we agreed upon was actually lower than I planned for. The complete paint job was less than a local body shop wanted to charge me for just a metal etching epoxy primer paint job. Keep up the good work MAACO.

      Due to unfortunate circumstances, there's a good chance I won't be going. Doc, do you need a definite answer from me ASAP to find replacement tenants? Or can I tell you up to the last minute?

      I know you did. Please don't feel pressured. I just wanted to know if you needed anything.

      You stand very little chance at winning anything compared to what the guys bring down, so just do like the rest of us and just take what you got and have a god time. The GLI will be going this year sporting the new mods of fresh rubber and fresh oil. That's about it........might wash and wax her good before the ride down and vacuum, but that's about it. Until I have a full-blown show car like Dennis, you want see me busting my balls on my daily to get it to the show. I need to build me a trailer Queen to take to shows.....much easier to keep it clean and looking good
