HAD A COUPLE RAILS STREAT LEGAL (WAS NICE NOT TOWING) ALSO HAD 9 OR 10 STREAT BUGS AND OUR CLUB WAS IN A FEW PARADES.(NOTHING LIKE DODGING HORSE CRAP FOR A FEW MILES!!)HAD 2 OR3 BAJA,S THEY JUST AN,T BUILT FOR POWERLINE RUNNING BECAUSE WE KEPT BUSTING OFF THE FIBERGLASS SO WE RAN THEM WITH JUST THE BODYS NO FENDERS WHAT SO EVER!!! THE RAILS DID BEST ! MY BEST WAS A 100" WHEEL BASE WITH BUCKSHOT ON THE BACK!! IT WAS GREAT TOPPING A HILL WITH THE FRONT TIRES IN THE AIR RIDING OVER THE CREST AND RIDING ON THE BUCKSHOT AS LONG AS A COULD ! DAM I MISS THEM DAYS! ANY WAY MY LAST VW WAS A 68 VERT MAXED OUT AND ENTERED IN A FEW VW SHOWS BUT HAD TO GO UP AGAINST PERSONS THAT HAD MORE MONY IN THEIR VW THAN I MADE IN A YEAR.THE SAME PERSONS ALWAYS WON AND MY SON AND I GOT TO WHERE WE WAS SPENDING WAY TO MUCH TIME SHINNG AND NOT ENJOYING! MY OLDEST BOY FIRST CAR WAS A 72 VW THAT I BUILT HIM, BUT LOVED CRUZING IN THE VERT WITH HIS GIRL FREIND ON SAT NITES .BUT AFTER ALL THEM YEARS MY WIFE JUMPED THE FENCE SO DID MY BUGS,TOOLS, KIDS ECT...NEVER THOUGHT I,D EVER GET TO DO WHAT I LOVE AGAIN !! THEN CAME CATHY! AFTER 8 YEARS OF BEING TOGETHER WE GOT MARRIED . SHE LISTEN TO ALL MY VW STORRIES AND KNOWING HOW MUCH I LOVED THEM SHE CAME ACROSS THE ONE I HAVE NOW ! AND YES FOLKS YOU GUEST IT SHE BOUGHT IT FOR ME . I CAME HOME FROM WORK AND THERE IT WAS IN THE DRIVEWAY!!!WHAT A GAL!!!! WHEN I SPEND ON IT SHE SAYS GREAT BUT WHEN ARE WE GOING RIDING!! BUT ANY WAY THATS MY STORY,I,M BUILDING NOW,I GOT A GREAT WIFE AND I FOUND THE GREATEST WEB SITE WITH THE GREATEST GROUP! AND I,M PROUD TO BE PART OF IT!!! I,M A HAPPY CAMPER!! JUST PROVES THERE IS LIFE AFTER DEATH !!!!!! J.R. Smile
