      As soon as we can find someone with a bus to join the club and be the designated driver.

      They just got a VR6 Eurovan up at DieselTrux (place on Coliseum). We could cram at least 10 in that bad boy

      Well hello folks. I'm marks buddy from terre haute. Know mark for a LONG time. Wish i would have stumbled into this area earlier, but if the passenger side fender flare down to the side skirt of marks car is still around I could use it to repair my own C. I plan on making it up too a gtg or two this year. Would enjoy making it to a big cookout if you guys plan on having any. I'd like to add theres a small VW group I hang out with here in the haute also. We don't have a name just a couple friends including...ECS tunings old mk4 jetta shop car, a mk2 gti VRT, and a B6 audi a4 hammered on some gallardo wheels, and a couple mk1s here and there.

      definitely try to come up for some meets and bring some folks with you. i would love to have a couple on a saturday and have a cookout and whatnot. we always have a good time and it's a great mix of people and cars.
      and from what i gather, a bunch of drunks too

      yea, but let's hold off on the cookouts until it's at least 50 degrees outside. There's nothing quite like a group of drunks huddled around the grille trying to stay warm
      I think Byler's still got that flare piece - he's been a bit reluctant to get rid of any of his "security blanket" yet. He mostly just sits by the pile of Corrado parts and sobs quietly to himself. It's truly a sad sight.
      Wes - we can get 4 more people on that Eurovan by bungie-cording them to the roof

      what's wrong with a cookout when it's 15 degrees?

      when he stops sobbing, yank that spoiler module!
      mine still only goes up with the switch now. not down, or with speed anymore. replaced the switch, swapped motor guts with a good one - with good sensors, and checked wiring. guessing its the module then, but it looked alright and nothing broke, cut, or burnt.
      welcome to the layer cake

      I just got back from the eastern hills of kentucky. 45* and more twisty roads than you can shake a stick at. I spent the majority of the trip looking out my side windows and snug up against the bolsters of my seat. Have you ever heard what a vr6 sounds like in a valley(or if you will a "holler")? Definatley a good time and I'm going to have to take my rabbit down there!

      Byler.... the Rado' looks SOOPER clean!

    11. 01-25-2008 12:57 AM #136
      Yo! The usual bro, been freezing lately unfortunately. Ya the C was a severely clean car. From the looks of it the jetta the motors going into is clean too. The picture I saw looked like the engine bay was EXTREMELY clean. Just glad your still in the vagen scene. You doing all that work has drug me back too so...2 birds one stone. A lil video from 2 weeks ago...you'll have to excuse the quality it's from a cell phone. http://media.putfile.com/Rado Will definitely make it up there at least once this year for something. Get my C on the road with this tax money and see whats gonna break once it's moving and get all the bugs sorted out. My wrenches turn with love though.

      I may have to drive down to Florida for a few weeks until the temps get back to 50's. This weather is depressing, nothing to work on and I cant bolt the fun stuff on until it gets warm again.

      Yea, that's the one I was looking for! That shell looked great from the top, but was SOOOOOO rusty underneath. Ah well, it gave up it's parts so that other more worthy MK2 cars could live

      I cant wait either!!!
      Anyone got a welder or a friend/hookup at a muffler shop? Places around town are wanting to charge me $65 to weld my muffler on . Ive got the muffler and everything...
      Id rather sound like a civic than pay a shop 65 bucks for a minor weld job

      Ain't that what JB Weld is for?
      Avoid the Midas / Tuffy places like the plague. I'm hunting around right now to see if any of my hot rodding friends here in town have a suggestion / hookup for ya...

      Brian advised that I avoid those types of places, too. However, out of desperation I took my wife's Jetta to FAIR Muffler shops (on Coliseum & Lake) and they did a decent job and didn't cost much. I got a new resonator and one of the mufflers replaced on the VR6. Yeah, yeah... I would love to buy a proper stainless exhaust for the car, but I really couldn't find a quiet system on my budget and my wife doesn't need/want the performance/sound from an expensive aftermarket. I was pleasantly surprised by the results and the price was very cheap...I have no idea what they'd charge for a simple weld job though.
      If you go, tell them Drew with the red Jetta sent you. They might remember me. haha.

      Oh by the way, I'm a Fort Wayne dubber and make it to the GTGs every once in awhile...I'm better about attending in the summer than in the winter. To anyone new on this thread, come on out to the GTGs on the first Wednesday of each month. The more the merrier. Not much exciting goes down, but we all talk cars and car stuff and drool over Karen's Lotus/S4/Cobra.

      Here's my ride. I have a silverstone GTI, live on the NE end of town, work near downtown. I see a couple black GTIs around my neck of the woods and a nice jetta TDI that's lowered with nice rims. If you guys are on here come one out to a GTG.
      Here are my VWs....nothing special on either. Give me a wave if you see me...I'm a dorky guy with plastic glasses. My asian-looking wife drives the Jetta...you can wave at her, but she probably won't know why.

      yay, drew made the thread! haha. you still need to bring that vr to a meet. there is a really clean red mk3 jetta for sale on tonkel. trim wise it looks like it could be a vr, but not sure without actually stopping. the price in the windshield is 3900, so makes me believe it's a 98 or 99 vr.
      as for exhaust work, i would try a place like exhaust world before midas type places. there is a monroe in auburn that just loves to do shoddy work.
      oh, and i found out that with my winter wheels on, my car is too low to get the oil changed at the place i normally go too. the rails around the pit are too tall
