Those are really nice. You can be proud of them.
I love that VW people are so much more hands-on.

You really think Corvette guys are out in their garage sweaty, bloody, greasy and pissed off like VW guys?



I don't think so.

But you have to admit.....there's many different kinds of car guys and you can classify them in MANY ways. But they would all be able to be separated by these two classes:

1) Those who work on their cars
2) Those who pay someone to work on their cars

I think what Kyle and I are trying to say is that more VW guys would fit into category #1 than Corvette guys or Street Rod guys. VW guys seem more "hands on".

agreed'.. now a days it seems that most 'muscle' car guys take them to the shop to have them worked on. VW guys seem to always try to tackle the work themselves first.

It's the presence of coolant in water pumpers.

It does funny things to your mind!!!

What size tires are you running in the front?

Did you narrow the beam?
