VW Graveyard

October 31st, 2010

Mwahahaha!! happy belated Halloween everybody!  Check out this “pumpkin” colored beetle I found while on my mini vacation: ok, so it’s not EXACTLY pumpkin colored, but… it’s the closest Halloween related VW thing I could find while driving down unfamiliar back roads.  It was set WAY back off the road, behind a building, but the […]

Everyday I get presents from the UPS guy!  It’s like Christmas, only in October…and it lasts for weeks!  Anyway, today I got a whole mess of Topline front suspension pieces, so I started wrenching them on (didn’t get very far… damned bushings) The complete list of goods I got is as follows: –steering damper […]
