woot! green car is burning gas! and there weren't even any sirens......
just wanted to say whats up to everyone. i now own a dub again and will probably find myself on the tex again from time to time. not gonna read the probably 300+ pages to catch up on how everyones been but notice there are some new people now also. collin congrats on the kiddo! i wouldnt mind getting in on cruise sometime, not sure when you guys have one planned for but none the less would be fun.
Got myself a 98 gls for the daily driver. I drive at least 500 miles a week, so something to save gas and put miles on was my intentions. and cheap. havent done a whole lot to the car yet except maintenance. but the exhaust i made and the oil change made me happy to have a veedub again. next on list is drain the trans and run some MT-90. as much as id like to do more to the car, its far from practicle. BUT AT LEAST IM NOT DRIVING A 97 NEON!!! if anyone has a thule444 laying around they are looking to get rid of let me know. i could really use a rack to put ladders on for work. dont want to put muddy ladder all over the interior. and i still have my GLX leathers in the garage i want to swap in.
Anyways good to be back to the community. glad to see new faces as well as the OGs. and Adam, i really enjoy all the food/drink porn on facebook.
i think i was the only dubber in FDL for a little while there. seems like more and more people are moving in the area which is nice.
the lighthouse seems to be the place to meet up since everywhere else got shut down. 10 years ago there use to be cars all the way down main st and you couldn't find a place to park and now you can't find anyone to park with..... maybe this year will be a little different?
I love having a mk3 as a daily, my current black GL I bought for $1000 and did the timing belt, waterpump, etc when I bought it and haven't put a penny into it since. Geez, that was 2 years ago now!
JoeD, I could be in for some grill and chill on Saturday night as long as I don't shoot another framing nail into my palm like last week.
EDIT: got sucked into working late, won't make it over there before they close. Tomorrow probably.

I plan to hit the Midwest shows this year.... And thats about it (Scooters, EuroWerks, EuroHanger, and DITV). This years another crazy year with Bennett still being a baby, finishing the basement, and general "new house" projects. Next year tho..... Next year.
I know a couple of you local guys are/were into subbies. The wife has been kinda stuck on getting a forester or something similar. Good family car? Reliable? Any input would be great. I need to find a computer, typing more than a facebook status is tough on a phone.
