      83 of them...15 VWs and no Fords
      04-15-2012 11:56 PM #1
      I have 2 VWs and I am cosidering buying a third.

      The wife is diggin on a B5 passat thats down the street , but I just dont like the front of those cars. It is a nice car though.

      There are also a few Jettas around and a '87 Scirocco 16v thas really cheap.(yes ,I already have one)
      Like to get a VR6-its on my bucket list-in a B3 Passat , but they all seem to be FAR away.(6=hrs)

      How many do you have ? Pics? I can't be the only one with these thoughts...
      Someday I will post something stupid here, but not yet.

      As many as you can afford, but no more than 1 for each day of the week.

      yeah, i'm pretty sure it depends on the ammount of parking you have available at your house

      Well , my Scirroco HATES being fixed , so (it sprouted a leak in a fuel line just before tonights joy ride) it usually stays in the garage and teases me with its good looks.

      In all actuality ,I only have one to drive on a regular basis. An 07 rabbit 2.5l.

      My wife wants it to be her DD.

      Whats the general opinion on Mk IV jetta ? this place is loaded with them.

      Feelings on B5 passat ? Turbo 4cyl. or V6? Also available in quantity

      Your 'rocco sounds like my husband's old '95 VR Passat. Always breaking down. That car hated me...but I hated her too. Definitely was the "other" woman

      There is no such thing as having too many Volkswagens. Volkswagen, after all, is the only car that matters.

      At the moment my household has...

      mk6 tdi golf
      mk5 gli
      mk4 2.0t
      mk2 diesel coupe
      mk1 gti
      corrado tdi
      69 single cab

      and I just sold 2

      I'm a believer in "if you have the parking why not use it"
      When you can, it's nice to have a place in the country to store and work on them.

      I think the real question should be "How many non-running VW's is too many?"

      Never had a MKIV Golf / GTI. I like the way they look (especially MKIV R32 )

      What is the biggest difference between MKIV and MKV ???

      What are the major problems with this generation of golf?

      I'm on Volkswagen 29 and 30 and have owned as many as 5 at one time. I am adding a 2012/2013 Beetle to our stable so we will be up to 4 at once.

      1970 Beetle (mine)
      2000 Beetle (mine)
      2010 Jetta Sportwagen (Mother)
      2013 Beetle (mine)

      Now I just need to get my sister to trade in her Scion Xa for a Volkswagen to complete the picture.

      Tom aka Eunos94

      P.S. I'm 44 and NO I don't live with my mommy.
