      this "new" chit chat thread is more off topic than the old one. can we have the other one back PUH-LEASE?

      who cares if we get off topic? just let us do our thing, we're all adults here.... mostly... we can take care of ourselves if something comes up.

      its not like we're offending anybody (as i can remember).... i admit, yes it does get a little out of controll, but not enough to get the post locked.


      ironically... the aircooled vw is basically a symbol for peace nowadays... and this forum is far from peace right now.

      ^^agreed.

      this is why I have a shop and drink beers and "tailgate "race with the locals and the internet took a huge back seat...since the accident (this time last year) i found myself getting sucked back in...now it's all clear to me why i would stick a screwdriver in my eye after lurkin' in certain forums and such.

      who gives a s--t about who says what,why and when...let's just get back on topic before this place turns into the place it used to be...'cuz all the real air cooled vw dudes leave and end up leaving us with:

      ...a bunch of "air cooled haters" making a mockery of our hobby coming in from other forums...(yeah, watercooled guys included!!) they come over make a stupid posts,say stupid s--t and never come back.

      ^^Schell, congrats, 1000 posts! If knowledge and posts worked hand in hand you should add another zero to that.

      I, for one, am not leaving. Ill wait this nonsense out until things get back to normal. Nor will I be swayed by the threat of a "mod" locking a thread for things unbeknown to them. I have confidence everyone will be back in due time (and stonger than ever lol ), just a shame it had to lead to this point. Such is life, things will pass.

      I remember how quiet this forum was when I started posting over here about 18 months ago.. I hope it can be saved.. In other news I think I will finally order my door panels and popper kit for my shaved handles so I can actually roll up my window!

      ...hmmmmmmmm


      i had a bunch of guys when i had it on the samba for a while...but after rebuilding the motor,a lightly used drag box and a fresh respray..I decided to keep it for a while.

      ...then after I got it all back together and took it to the shows...I realized, I'm tired of it...not to mention my legs don't bend like they used to since the accident...i dunno.

      got it on racejunk.com for 20k...or trade for a 10.5 nova...

      My brother and I purchased a new toy tonight, should be tons of fun......100% original, I will be the 3rd owner, 1st owner owned it up until 2003, guy moved from New Mexico to Pittsburgh and drove this bus the whole way 2000 miles in 3 days, 1600 SP. The thing is virtually rust free, absolutely no rot anywhere, just some light surface rust.

      Bringing it home tomorrow, more pics up later this weekend!





      This is the direction....
