      So since I turn 30 on Sunday does that mean I have to join the old man club?

      I gotta poop, it's only lunchtime, and I won't poop at work.

      Anyone else interested in the peds? See 3 pages back, too lazy to quote.

      Who do I keep waving to in the JB R in Burrell?

      So i still havent been able to get my aba running in my golf and im at the point where i dont know what else to do. the starter will crank and occasionally gurgle a little bit. It will start up every once in a while but run rough, and bog and die when giving it gas.

      Ive changed:
      dist. cap, rotor, distributor, plug wires, fpr, fuel filter, icm, crank position sensor, ecu, ignition switch.

      its in time, all fuses good, all grounds were checked and good, checked relays and swapped out different ones.

      the only things i can think of is the alarm or the fuel pump.

      to anyone who can help!

      Here's my next home project. Need to "fence in" the upper area of my backyard so kids dont go rolling over the hill. Drew this up quick this morning to get an idea of lumber needed.

      I may take you up on those coils. They will be going on my CC. Where they on a jetta or GTI? I dont think the jetta suspension works on the CC. Could be wrong though.

      gti

      i'm going to fit the springs to the wife's car, if they arent low enough with the votex kit and tarmacs, then i'm going to install the coils. coils have a couple thousand miles on them, the springs and shocks about 5k.

      I like it a lot, but then again I drink anything from Pittsburgh and I love both good beer and crappy beer.

      Penn Brewery actually brews it, and I do think it is a good beer. I've been drinking it for years in Florida. Where we vacation there are two locations of Rooney's Irish pubs and they sell it, Iron City, have the walls plasters with Pittsburgh stuff.

      I like to call them 'children' and act quirky. I have long hair and earrings, and I look young for my age. I like to think that I freak kids out a little bit.

      They probably just see me and think 'that old guy looks like Jesus with earrings'

      *edit* ...and I'm nearly 7 years deep into the old man's club by the aforementioned cut-off
