      So what happens to all these built cars? You ever finish them? Do they become money pits and you just give up? You sell them? You get magazine features then gouge the price when you sell them?

      bryce actually does really good work...i know here at TCL, we laugh at EM KAY people, but he's an exception. pictures don't do any of these cars justice and i'm pretty sure he still owns many of the cars he posted.

      Heh, I've had fifteen cars in nearly thirteen years on the Vortex. Still can't quite believe it's been that long.

      Wow! Those are some nice cars! Are the first two pics from a VW show in Colorado? (I forget its name.... ) I think I've seen that car in person. Congratz on 10 years.

      That's crazy Bryce. You and I joined on the same exact day and year. The only difference is that I've only had my Jetta since I bought it brand new in 2002. My wife had a mk3 but, that doesn't count.

      Back then, I was just posting in the Van forum. Two years ago, new to TCL, I posted a link to chat roulette as a joke, and that's how I became McBanagon.
