      lol. Agreed. Although I know a few honda's that would be hard to get away from without an R8 cant judge anything by its badge these days but i totally get what your sayin. no white rice

      Trying to get 4 ball joints and an axle replaced on the 4k before treffen, money is tight but the S30 (i'm sure its old enough lol) is running like a champ on its new head gasket, so well in fact, I plan on maxing out the timing today and massaging the fuel map a bit.

      so hit me up, i'm in town fri-sun 9706408421

      Just drove the Corrado from Fort Collins to Durango. So I'm officially a westslope 'dubber

      I did get stopped for 23mph over coming down wolf creek pass, but the State Patrol officer nicely bumped it down to 19 to keep me from the next level of punishment.

      Why is it 45 coming down that hill? The corners aren't nearly as fun at that speed.

      Glad to have you among us! I need to drag the Scirocco out of storage and give it some love. Been driving the C around lately.

      Probably the same cop that nailed me years ago in my Scirocco. "Nicely" dropped mine down as well.
      He walked up and said in a jovial voice "I had 83 what'd you have?"
      That day there was construction and they had the pass shut down to one lane. So we waited 45 minutes for the other direction to clear and then were let go. After passing a few people I realised I WAS OUT FRONT! There were no other cars in front of me.
      Much more fun than at 45mph...

      well...you can't miss my car! ...the color is pretty loud. I'll keep an eye out for you....when I'm finally up here 100%, it would be nice to try to put a GTG for the few of us here.

      Our house is in Missouri Heights, just north of Basalt....my youngest will be attending Basalt HS.

      When is the salida drive? Im only 30 minutes from there and would love to cruise with some dubbers... although i may have to drive my audi since the rabbit is on blocks awaiting suspension and diesel injectors and the tdi bus blew its tranny, too much damn torque for a 74 transmission.

      it's cool to see everyone coming out of the western woodwork. I've been working in the basalt/gypsum area all summer so if you guys see a red 4kq in that area it's probly me. speaking of, I was finishing up work on monday, driving on cottonwood pass when what did I see but a very clean red coupe quattro pass by. I doubt I'll find them here but what a beautiful car

      I like the cruise too treffin idea. maybe meet in glenwood and take independence pass down to salida? then us junction peeps can take 50 all the way home

      Now that's a colorado loop for ya! practically a big figure eight

      You'll probably win again! lol
      I think I won several B3 and Scirocco trophies because of being the only one...
      I look forward to seeing it built up though! Love the B3 shape
