      bloomington here. i have a green mk4 jetta, but its slow and all stock right now. hoping to get springs/wheels sometime in the near future, or possibly selling it and getting a b5 passat (still trying to talk the mrs. into it). but for now im just happy to have it back on the road. my wife usually drives the jetta to work, so you could spy me in one of these around town......



      and the money shot that gives me inspiration for my benz.....


      ......and my buddy's cars. theyve both moved out of town again

      man i picked up a 4x4 silverado for the winter rig and i have an all new outlook on fourwheel drive! now i wish for 4' snow drifts and mud!
      plus my whip gets to sit in the garage all winter untouched by the salt.

      im sure fuel costs are a bit different than the gti
      Chalm- dont happen to work on E vernon do ya?

      ^^ When and where?

      If the rain holds off, looks like it's supposed to be in the 50's on Sunday. That may be an opportune time to do some driving before it gets cold and snows again Monday/Tuesday...

      You're going to spend a whole lot more than that this summer. Mods like yours tend to keep the foot mashed down on the pedal. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Sweet. There is a Mexican joint that I ate at last week while I was down there. Can't remember where it was, or its name. All I know, is that it was good. It looked as if they bought the place from a 50's diner. I think it was accross the street from Kids-R-Us?
