I'm Don and I'm new to the group. I grew up in Elk Grove although my home now in Fresno. I attend as many of the Nor Cal VW events as possible, along with shows in So Cal.

My current VW collection includes: 1956 European Ragtop (Coral Red) with a 4" narrowed beam. Recently a neighbors 1966 Squareback followed me home after sitting since 1981 - we're in the tail end of a complete mechanical restoration - the plan is to have my wife drive the Squareback and caravan to shows together. The SB is sporting all original paint and interior - with no pan rust. I think it'll be a safe fun ride for Kelly.

See you at the shows,
Don

Hey Don. Welcome! First off, you should know that my Holy Grail (for me anyway) is a Coral Red Oval Rag. So I can't wait to see your car. Just don't yell at me if a I get a little drool on it. Can't wait to meet you......but your car more importantly. Laughing

Thanks Greg, I'll be at the TRP swap later today, I'm trying to make some space for the squareback in the garage so I'm bringing a carload of stuff that wouldn't fit in the oval.

Thanks guys - We had an awesome time last last night. I've attended every TRP event to date and they just get better and better. We sold a lot of swap stuff and should be able to get the squareback into the garage once it's gets released from the Dr.

See you at the next event.

I never ended up running into you. I guess I wouldn't know though if I did or not. Laughing

Which booth was yours?

I was on the very end - closest to the sales flap bus - I had all the really good "treasures" for sale.

I hate not having a VW at events like that - no one ever knows who you are - but there was no way all that "treasure" would fit in my oval - and I bought even more stuff to take home - LOL.

I'm always at BOR and have been making all the TRP events - I'm sure we'll run into each other.
