      Yo, I recently moved to Decatur. Currently don't own a dub (Sold my '82 Caddy to my bro) but I should be getting an air cooled Beetle soo- eventually...

      Just wanted to say that the parts guy at Green has officially earned a [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] in my book.
      I saw a red MkIV Jetta TDI sitting outside the service shop, possibly in the early stages of being 'tuned'. Talked to the service guys and they said it is owned by a Doctor... So just keep an eye out for it around town.
      I'm definitely down for a GTG as soon as the temperature can get above 50 for more than five minutes!
      Back in the saddle again!

      RIP MkIII Jetta. 6 years, 160k miles and countless memories.

      [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] for a GTG! Do it soon though, thinking about selling the GLI.

      The plan is to get a beater for a few years and then put some cash down on a b7 S4. I say that now, but next year we'll probably be having conversations about inter-coolers and down pipes for my GLI. I'm a big talker. Besides, the resale for used GLIs isn't that great. Might not be worth selling.

      Saw a MkIV GTI w/ Texas Plates and some strange after market Tail lights headed north on Veteran's about 6 pm.
      I'm so excited for this GTG though. I'm going to have to scout out some back country roads and maybe we can make it a GTG/Cruise....

      Better give us maps. You'll leave us in the dust with no lead car.

      Springfield is fine by me.
      Sometime, if we can get enough people together, it'd be fun to cruise down the river road to St. Louis and meet up with those guys one Saturday.
