      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...

      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.
