I was hoping he was going to bring a VW this weekend (Coastal Range Rally Rewind with Driving While Awesome), but apparantly the weather is going to be nice, so he isn’t taking the convertible. He doesn’t like driving his other cars in the rain. Something about rust or something.
Jason is doing his part to raise MK1 values. I am not sure if that is a good thing or not for me though.

He posts some really cool videos of his Scirocco and his Cabby on Instagram. I'd really like to meet him one day.

I like the story of him loosing a new 911 touring after the first corner. The same thing happened to me driving my VR6T Corrado and following my Dad in his stock 914. My Dad said he wasnt even pushing, mean while I had to push pretty hard to keep him in sight.
Out of all the car shows I've watched through the years, Jason is the only host that I thought "Hey, he'd be cool to hang out with."
Really enjoyed the video and that's scary that the stock scirocco 16v suspension on the cabby can get up on two wheels with just zII star specs, I always heard of rumors of mk1s flipping over on hoosiers, but on modern 200tw autocross tires yikes.

What are the odds.
Good guy. Would love to sit down and have a beer with him sometime.

I guess I'm in the minority in that he just rubs me the wrong way. He is very knowledgeable about cars, I just don't care for him. I appreciate Jonny more as an entertainer.
