Talking about car's, whats everyone driving?
Bought this in September after owning a B5 A4 for 4 miserable years.
86 740 Turbo (Volvo)
02 Jetta 1.8T 3076R cams, blah blah
98 Audi A4 1.8T 5857, blah blah.
Stock 07 impreza.
Currently only the impreza and Volvo run.
Probably because the reason for the Old Curmudgeon GTG is due to the things we bitch about here. You know, totally related.
Think your car would have gotten keyed years ago before it became Brahfest ?
I liked when you could call NGP and get someone who knew a VW on the phone instead you get "Hey brah, thanks for calling NGP"
I had a 96 golf 2.0 then swapped in a vr6 thats long gone. I then bought a 1991 corrado g60. I tried making it a daily driver and I lost that battle so I sold it and picked up a 2001 golf gls and a 2001 cabrio. And with in the next month maybe getting 2007 gti or a 2007 audi a3.

For all you Vw/Audi needs.
Just seeing this thread. I'm down. It will be nice to be around people without hip hugging skinny jeans and MKIVs built with mom and dads money.
I love the, dare I say scene, but get tired of people thinking I'm trying to make my car look like a 20th... It's a 337 you GD HIPPSTER DOUCHE. Bitter, why do you ask?
I just saw this thread for the first time. Looking forward to a mature GTG next year. Since I'm in my fiftys, I'm sure that I qualify. I do have a couple of pairs of skinny jeans though but won't wear them when we meet. And a old fart did win Top Dawg this year in a MK4.

So more of us exist..........
I figured after page 3 the bag riderz would have showed up, started a flame war, and the thread would have been locked into obscurity. Vortex proving me wrong once again. Should take more mental health sick days as so far I have gotten to use the internet for something other than work, order some parts from ECS, and get in a few games of Forza 4.
I am thinking some sort of pre H2O curmudgeon GTG may be needed to keep faith alive and spread the gospel. Somewhere with lots of speed humps to keep the riff-raff out or at an Old County BUffet.
Something around tax time?
I think now that my daughters leukemia is under control and she is in the maintenance phase I can make it.
The question is will it be in a ratty MKIV with a 3076 or a mk2 syncro golf or a green B5 1.8Tq with a 5857 turbo and other bits?
The only running car is the MKIV.
You still doing dirtbox radio? I need to tune in more..... i'v been on a power metal and classic rock kick. Modern music sucks something fierce.

Maybe a parking lot with speedbumps, and maybe an initial early gtg?
Around here we have exotic/classic meets at 7-8am so riff raff does not show up -- it sure as hell works and you have a drama free meet with car folks from all walks of life.
Earlyish and North of the MD border. Those are my suggestions
I'm putting an AEB in the Jetta here at some point - may need to ask you some questions since you're the turbo guru.
I have an 02J quaife, a new beetle trans to rebuild around it that needs diff bearings and a shimming..... .
