      first up, no aircooled = no one's aircooled "bud". ownership of an aircooled opens that door, nothing else. and further more if you're going to talk like some stupid wannabe hippy that still listens to that drivel called 'grateful dead' please direct yourself to another forum.

      don't know anything about aircooled? venture over to the thesamba.com and start reading around. spoon feeding will not happen around here. oh, and a little heads up, it won't happen over there either.


      and i took a minute and read thru this:

      really? you can't afford to fix the possible lifter noise in the vr but you want to venture into the aircooled world? hate to break it to you snowflake but you're not going to find any running rust free aircooled vw for cheap in your general area that will not require a ton of work. likewise, i'm sure as hell not gonna tell you if i found/find one, that is reserved for my fellow aircooled owners, aka my 'aircooled buds'

      was i being too harsh? yes? good. that was the point. the aircooled scene isn't for those with shallow pockets who want to keep their hands clean.


      EDIT
      thought i remembered seeing you post before...

      since you're obviously looking for the biggest scenster mobile you can get yourself into the MK4 crowd have a vehicle for you.

      i probably deserved that and i really dont care if your somehow mad or annoyed by me i was trying to be nice, i feel great to be welcomed by you. have you ver heard of changing your horizons? well thats what ive chosen to do. i like switching things up time to time. when im working on a dub, im always looking for what the next new project will be. i have time before im driving, and thats why im doing this. so i can find what im into the most. if its air cooled vw's so be it? why should it offend you worst comes to worse it just turns into a learning experience for me. is that so bad for a kid? if it is and kids should be mentally retarded all around the world and destroy todays economy even worse when we get older. the cars i hate the most are the mk4's just to let you know. im not trying to start fights, or a scene just letting you know, lance

      changing your horizons? yes, yes i have. but i didn't jump into a forum and start a thread talking about a car i don't even own, twice. my SN is MK1 in origin and yet i'm playing around in here because i own an aircooled, not because i want to own them. your thread is nothing new, they pop up quite often around here and the OP disappears just as quickly.

      you really want an aircooled? then venture over to the samba and do some reading up. this forum is more lowered aircooled friendly but for general overall knowledge that site is where it's at.

      yeah probably.

      feel free to start a new thread if you found perspective aircooled you have questions about or if you went ahead and pulled the trigger on one.

      we are often brash in here to newcomers, myself moreover, but we are a good group that help each other out.

      and whatever you do, don't be like MicroCADDY

      i dont own an air-kewld but i made out in one.......does that count?

      guys, why you guys drinking hateraide?

      just let the dreamers dream and the do'ers do

      just because someone fails at one project doesnt mean they might be better suited for a different project

      peter principle or no?

      i cant weld for **** but that doesnt mean i dont love welding

      oh, and if i could own an air-cooled vw it would be a type3 and i would have time and money to fix it right
      you hippies may say im a dreamer but im not just doing it for fun
