      Well it has been awhile and as we are slowly starting to emerge from our winter cocoon, it is time for a little GTG.
      Everyone is welcome, of course. The more, the merrier.
      Nothing but a meet, greet and eat.
      Address:
      2020 Timothy Rd.

      See you there.Mav.

      I don't believe I have anything planned that weekend. Time will tell. So, count me in, and I'll see if Matt will bring his new Passat Wagon as well.

      We are going to re-enact the famous 'round the campfire' scene from "Blazing Saddles." Michelle will be the loudest one.

      Bump back up.

      There are a couple junk yards up on US 441 almost to Commerce. I'm not sure if they are of the 'pull a part' variety or if they even have VWs there, but they certainly have a bunch of stuff. I'm always looking for ways to not drive from Athens to Duluth. I can't stand 316...

      With that unintelligible ramble, I assume you are for the Saints in the big game.
      I am pulling for the Colts as I am an AFC guy, but as long as it is a good game, either is OK with me.

      It turned out to be a good game and congrats to the Saints.
      One less team who had never won the big game.

      You guys are sound pretty cool; can't wait to hang out with some VW lunatics. Be looking for the white Westy Golf at Locos

      We are equal parts lunatic and cool around here. You have to be to drive what we do.

      LOVED the VW Punch Dub commercial during the Super Bowl. The part with Stevie Wonder was inspired.

      Went to the Doc this morning and got a Huge Bag of Med's If they work as well as he said they would I should be down for a PAP run. Hopefully they still have some parts left on that 5spd Fox I saw last Time

      Which PAP do y'all usually go to? I'm kinda partial to the one in Lithonia but it just depends on which one gets a cabby! Cheers

      Hope to see you guys out at EuroAutoFestival this year!!!

      10-16-10

      VW is the featured make for 2010, so show up in force!!! I plan on stacking the front yard of the BMW Zentrum in Greer, SC with VWs and Audis!!!!

      www.euroautofestival.com

      Register early, we only have 500 spots on the field!!!

      Also, if you know anyone with a Phaeton, Tiguan, Touareg, or CC ask them to register, we've never had any of those models on the field for a show, and this is the year for us to shine!

      And, as always, there's the epic afterparty at Houck's house in Greenville to wrap up the day with beer pong and general debauchery late into the night. Anyone that's been to the show and afterparty before can well attest to what kind of party the Syndicate can throw.

      For anyone new to the show, it's limited to right around 500 cars total, all European (last year we had to admit Crossfires because of their MB lineage... don't ask me what that's about). Cars are judged by the people registered in the show only. There is no panel of judges, only your peers and yourself to vote on who wins. Feel free to bring coolers of your favorite beverages (we're alcohol friendly), and there will be vendors and sponsors on site (GMP in Charlotte is a vendor this year and I'll have updates on vendors as that info comes in). There is a food tent (Brats, Burgers and Beer!) and beer sales, too.

      I also know we have a 2011 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG registered. Maybe we can talk them into coming to Houck's afterparty....

      So please head on over to the Euro website and get yourself registered (completely online this year, no pdfs to print and mail in) and come join us for a great show!

      The Marriott in Spartanburg is offering discounted rooms for people attending the show, just mention EuroAutoFestival.

      If you decide to register day of show please bring cash to speed things along, the line to get in can get quite long otherwise.

      Register, and let's get the numbers up!!!
