      paul, you still don't know anyone.
      A Rabbit is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy one of these cars. Instead, leave it for a worthy soul who has already matriculated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as a "MK1"

      head went off to the machine shop. 500k is a little scary...... it smokes and is leaking oil from the head gasket, a few of the valves dont close all the way and the lifters are done.

      Which forum did you post up on? I'll go put it on the FAQ so there may be more than just me with a 2002 there.

      Its official, im going. , if I can change a CV joint in time. hmm, my car broke down the day of the show last year and I still made it... getting a tradition i guess.

      P.S. Do VW CV joints normally go out with a bang? I am used to them going out to where they just click when you turn, not my car! I was picking up chunks of the CV joint out of the dirt.

      this gtg starts early-ish 11. With a Drive/ cruise later in the afternoon. With beers back at the brewery after.

      The cruise route Paul (Under the radar) is working on.

      0000 ....... to park together, trying to get my 84 CGT ready for this also.

      Usually 100+ up to 250 would be a good, lots of last minute peeps showin up.

      Sacramento, California

      Was thinking of starting 1 from the here:

      80W at West Capitol Ave./Park & Ride
      West Sacramento

      http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...,0.005681&z=18

      * Encouraging Everyone to bring a handheld radio, I will have one & will be using channel 11.

      **Meeting up 0900, Leaving 0930 with approx. 2 hour drive, using these directions to avoid weekend traffic as much as possible:


      1) Leave West Capitol Ave. onto 80W/Fairfield-Cordelia Pass

      2) 680S onto Dublin, get it?

      3) 580W onto San Lorenzo

      4) 880S onto Hayward (3mi. from 92W)

      5) 92W onto Half Moon Bay (becomes a 2 way at "San Mateo Road" after freeway exit)

      6) Right onto Cabrillo Highway North(1)

      7) Left onto Capistrano Road, right into parking lot(Crab Landing)

      May I suggest the same routing info, but meeting at the Eppie's on West Capital Ave. Same general viscinity, and far easier to roll onto the freeway en mass.

      The Park & Ride/Commuters lot right across the Chevron gas station/W Capitol Ave, W. Sacramento, should be empty on the weekends, will check it out today.

      Great Suggestion, just thinking if Eppies management might say somethin if there is a whole bunch of cars park there not goin into the establishment.

      Hey Guys, I designed a shirt for last years Old Skool GTG but didnt have funding to get them made, this year is different so I hired a graphic artist freind, Ben Henderson, to do this graphic based on a photo I took when driving to last years meet. Im getting a 1 or 2 color of the graphic printed on the back with a small front pocket print on heather grey shirts (and a few similar shades of color t-shirts), printing will be done at MR. TEES screenprinting in San Jose(Rybones!), I might do a few sweatshirts as well

      Ill be selling them at the GTG for 10 bucks a shirt, if anyone wants a to pre-order a shirt to ensure they get one in the correct size then paypal me $10 at asbjones@hotmail.com and dont forget your shirt size and quantity! if you really want a hooded sweatshirt message me and I'll work something out(probably around $25 each), if anyone cant make it to the GTG buts wants a shirt you can paypal me $13.50 and I will ship you a shirt (within the USA) and dont forget your shirt size and quantity! (I can ship international too so message me if interested)
      cheers! -Jones
