HEY!!
Gotta get it a little more lively in here. What's the latest and greatest with everyone's cars? Anything new?

My car tried to strand me yesterday, so today I will be correcting my temporary fix that got me home. Still trying to determine the best route to run my ignition wire from the switch to the MSD Box.

How's everyone else doing in Austin?

Just got the SC all fixed up. Drove it around all last weekend and it's running sweet!!! Fixed the oil leak issue. Turns out the oil filer adapter was cracked above the threads. Shortened the Ebrake cable so now I have a brake :thumbs:

Yea.. this is Austin.. we don't care about much..

what I have done lately?? DRIVE THE CRAP out of mine.. way to many daily miles.. UGH -I love the VW's but every now and again it tends to get old.. :)

So glad the SC has stopped leaking.. hopefully that ChumBucket bottom end stays long and strong like mine has..
Great news..

I am joking 99.9% of the time, I am beginning to think my jokes don't come across very well on the forum. :oops: :oops:

Great to hear all that, drove mine Monday tuesday.... brakes are a lil sketchy hope to resolve that this weekend. Besides that, running like a top. More news to come.....
