      The more seasoned members of this site will remember that we used to regularly feature our member's vehicles in a feature called AUTObiography. Think of it as 21 questions, all about your car.

      It was generally well received, and I always liked the concept of putting you, the reader, on the front page of VWvortex. To be honest, it's where you belong. Problem is, we haven't done one since late 2011.

      So due to popular demand, we're bringing it back.

      To be featured, simply paste the questions below into a new email, answer each one to the best of your ability, attach a few pictures of your car, and send to [email protected]. It's really that simple.

      • How long have you owned this car?
      • Is there anything unique about the history of this car?

      This could be very cool, especially if someone has a project car that they put their blood, sweat and tears into!

      Que Tal Sebastien..............

      Cutting and Pasting, uploading photos et al ad nauseam are not for this sailor.

      Volkswagens are 'nuther story.

      As the title indicates I once drove a Bug.

      Then came a bunch of diesels: Rabbit, Rabbit pickup, Quantum. Thence a 914,
      a Karmann Ghia, and another diesel (JSW TDI 6M).

      After VW and the emissions scandal dust settled:

      I returned the TDI for a BIG chunk of change.

      I like VW. I had mixed emotions about the emissions thing.

      VW gave me a little Jetta........for a super-low price..........

      After 7 previous V-dubs, this little 1.4 turbo/5M is carrying the flag.

      .......and getting diesel-like fuel numbers too.

      all the best,
