      Figured this would be the correct forums... Any dubbers @ UVA or close to Charlottesville?

      k, now we are getting somewhere... seen a few MKVs up here, and quite a few mkIV r32s and older GTIs... all @ or around campus...

    4. 10-30-2007 02:23 PM #4
      Yeah there are a few of us around. I've seen 6 or 7 GLIs in the last 2 weeks around my house. There was an atempt and trying to get a gtg going but I think that has fallen by the wayside and I don't think much is gonna happen over the winter months.

      um... no, i've seen that one, with 18'' Hufs, right? mine has classix, 17''.

      i'm usually parked at home near JPA, @ the E School, behind the Brown Library / Clark Hall... might cruise down at night down Emmet/Ivy (the one that goes through UVA???)...

      parking sucks for real, I'm only half a mile from my building, fortunately.

      hehe, 600 posts

      im for the gtg last one no showed

    25. 11-08-2007 10:20 AM #25
      yeah im down for a gtg as well? how many people actually want one?

    26. 11-08-2007 12:26 PM #26
      I do but I am quite busy with work and teaching throughout most of the winter months. It all depends on what night everyone wants if I can make it or not.

    27. 11-08-2007 02:17 PM #27
      youre right. guess we will just have to see what happens in the last game

      I didn't realize that C'ville was starting up a thread.
      Thanks Redstar for the post on the lbc thread!

      I used to waive or throw the V to other dubbers but I always get a confused look fro people.

      You guys have probably seen my black MKII crusing around the campus area. I know there are a few others here but not many. Unfortunately you guys won't get to see The Tank. she will be meeting her new owner tonight in Richmond to drive to missouri.


      glad to meet everyone!
