      yeah I agree about the thing at SGMP, don't know what to expect myself. Plan to drive by and see how many drag cars are in the lots, before I pay to get in on Saturday.
      That is cool that you are coming to the Silver Dollar Showdown. It is a pretty big show and lots of fun. We usually have a bunch of Watercooled show up.
      Got to get some more information together on the site and then I will make posts in Vortex about it.
      Also, heard from our friend that we are having a VW Gathering on March 1st at his place. Supposed to have some bands as well. He lives out by Hambrick's Tree Farm off Cat Creek. When I have all the info, will let you guys know.

      COOL!
      Well I went to SGMP today and watched lots of Drag Racing, actually I don't think it is even over as I make this post! They were only going into their 2nd round of eliminations when I left at 9:30!
      Don't think we will be heading out there tomorrow, got to get plenty of stuff done around here tomorrow!
      If anyone wants any flyers for the show, I will have some next week and will have them out at Davis Imports.

      Kathy do you know if the Dyno Day in conjunction with the Silver Dollar event allows watercooled to make dyno runs. I didnt see anything on the forums or flyers.

      I don't think they have ever even had one ask about coming to the event. So it has always been Aircooled.
      Will ask the question and get back with you.

      Hey from Eglin.
      Went to a salvage yard today in Crestview that I've always loved. They had a complete perfect Rado G60, a handfull of mk2's and mk3's and a little 88 cabriolet with a few mods...errrr...a lot of mods
      I knew the car back in the day when I lived in Panama City and have NO idea how it ended up a junkyard in the middle of nowhere but i do know that I bought it
      Actually it was cheaper for me to buy it complete and take all I want. The body is kinda jacked up but I'm getting:
      16V engine swap. 2.0 block/1.8 head/centerforce clutch/2y trans
      Techtonics exhaust
      Rocco brake upgrade(front and rear disc)
      stainless steel brake lines
      upgraded sway bars
      strut tower bar and rear tower bar
      jamex hood struts
      some kind of aftermarket suspension
      short shifter
      blah blah blah.
      So yeah...I'm happy
      P.S. My 79 Rabbit L HAS TO GO. If you know any dubbers that are local...please let them know. It's not for sale to non dubbers.

      This is the guy who had to register 4 cars just so he could keep them. That's hard core. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      My wife keeps telling me to buy your rocco that's not for sale.

      Well I found out why the cabby was in the junkyard because the police report was still in the car. MINOR front end collision. I gaurantee the car would have cranked up in the junkyard if it had a battery in it. I almost wanted to find one but I trust it was good. Hell it was only wrecked in in Sep 07.
      As for the Rocco...it's worth more in parts to me than it is complete. Tell yah what...you let me take the engine/tranny/exhaust, seats(I'll put stock ones in), and a few other ones and I'll sell you the shell for cheap

      leslie told me it was gone last week but I didn't care all that much. I found ANOTHER mk1 in Valdosta that I'm going to try and acquire soon
      Anyway...long story short...my 79's head gasket popped yesterday. When I get home and finish the motor swap for the guy in Tampa..the 79 will go under the knife
      LOTS of plans for it....

      Andrew - a hose popped when I was 10 mins from my home! I replaced the hose but now I have bubbles in the coolant and I saw a little coolant in the oil.
      It's all good though...It got the ball rolling
      should we call this the Andrew/Kathy/Jason thread

      I wish I had room I love that car. I used to have one exactly the same color and everything. Then I did a 1.8t swap and soon after joined the airforce and sold it to a friend. Hope someone buys it up.

      Tiff won't be driving anything for a couple weeks after this weekend's ****-show. I almost broke her clutch foot and face.

      We (Nate and I) went midnight skim boarding on Sunday night and I lost Tiff in the darkness and while I was spinning I ran into her backwards at full speed - I crushed her foot. On my way down I turned around to try to not fall on her and managed to elbow her in the eye. We spent from 11:30 until 5am in the hospital for the dr. to tell us neither her foot or her face were broken even though it looked like a baseball under her skin until the swelling spread out. I literally thought I snapped her foot in half.
