However, they have never had the joy of throwing a rabbit through snow banks, or the comfort of recaros in an A2 GLI, or repainting the steel louvers in the back window of your early Scirocco. Sadly they have missed the real depth of awesomeness in the VW family. I'm glad they dig a 'dub, even if it's not really capturing the soul.

      The other group doesn't have anything newer than '98 and we race anything. We're the guys who buy the old cars for $200 and drive them until they sputter, drop in a new motor, then keep going.....and every VW is a racecar, including the doo-doo brown 30 hp diesel 4-door rabbit on stock 13" wheels.

      The orange rabbit is owned and driven by Chuck Mathis, and much like our drag car (the white A2), it was built by committee. Our little circle of knuckleheads have produced all sorts of auto-x champs, several SCCA roadracing champs (including the orange car above) and even a rally car or two.

      That rabbit is the one from the runoffs.

      As much as I would love one of these bad boys, I know I'm just not cool enough for it. I'd look like a total 'tard in a cool old hotrod. Same with bikes, I think bobbers are cooler then all hell, but I'd look like a complete tool on one.

      Haven't been on vortex long enough since "Ye Old Tex" was murdered to do a sig (or anything else for that matter).

      With a thread that gets more then 2 posts a week tho - I may just have to visit the internets more.

      When the novelty of this one wears off, we'll be back to bumping it to get it out of interwebs lost too I'm sure. But until then, I'm going to be in Madcity this saturday night for some carousing at the High Noon Saloon for the Drunk Drivers show. They have never once let me down for a kick ass WTF happened last night kinda time.I expect to see at least some of you there....

      Bravo, well put.

      I'm going need to watch that runoff race again this weekend.

      In regard to the rally cars, has your group made it to LSPR at all over the years, I've brought home a bunch of pictures from there the last few years.

      A couple of my pals ran the 0 and 00 cars at the 100 Acre Wood Rally here in Missouri with an Audi 4000Q. Another has a G60/16v A2 GTI for rallycross that will eventually end up on the tour.

      A few years ago, we were going to bring the Audi to Treffen all covered in mud just to make the "show car" guys freak out.
