Like it says, I'm leaving to go to Portland after I hit the Ranch Run tomorrow. I just wanted to check as I didn't know....maybe somebody has something (small) they needed to be picked up and brought back. I'm going to be fairly bored and I'll have plenty of time on my hands. I would be happy to pick something up for somebody.

Just let me know. Now's the time to hit Portland's Craigslist. Laughing

Yeah that helps me out. You be further away and I won't have to deal with you.

Really though, have a safe trip and you and the family have a good time.

If you get bored just start going to the junk yards to look for VW treasures.

Yeah, does anybody know of any around here? I don't have anything to do today and that would be my idea of a perfect day!

If you come across any Ghias, I call 'em...

I think I may need a reality show.

Something between hoarders, american pickers, overhaulin' and intervention.

I found a couple of cool spots. One is an all-indoor wrecking yard. Quite a site. I picked up a '63 Ivory-knobbed Saphire I radio, the rear seat support bracket and a complete original shifter. I got the hole pile for $100. I was pretty tickled. I'm going to look at a pair of front seats tomorrow. I'm going to have to tie them to the roof of the wife's Expedition. She's so happy about it!!

I ended up checking that place out. They had a couple pairs of front buckets but Jeez-o-weez.....they wanted a shit-ton for 'em. The ol' boy behind the counter was kinda short with patience and on customer service. I ended up walking out of there without spending a dime. Pretty cool place though. The indoor place I went to was called Avery's Aircooled out of Woodland, WA. Staff was very friendly and wanted to b.s. Volkswagens and their prices were very reasonable.

I found a bought my buckets from a guy on Craigslist while I was up here. Really cherry set with some of the best springs/frames I've seen. Got the pair of 'em for $100. I'm really stoked. I've just gotta tie em to the roof of the wife's Expedtion. Laughing

OH! You said sandrail!

How I miss Oregon.


You could cut across 10 from Portland to Sand Lake and then down 101 through the dunes from Florence to Coos Bay. Lots of cool stuff through there.

There used to be an awesome sandrail shop near the Umpqua dunes like near a marina...

No I am not from Oregon, but I love the coastal sand.

I have to clarify that as inland sand dunes while still alot of fun are just not the same experience.

I have spent a fair amount of time up and down the Oregon coastline.

Since it is pretty tough out there these days, most of my sand toys just sit...

Crying or Very sad

Look at my turbo on my avatar do you think it will clear. I will have to amputate from the tail down for clearance.

Yes, as long as it will fit on the roof of the wife's Expedition along with the seats for my '63. Hopefully there's a way to tie it down.
