Photographic Introductions

Post by CalAltaDubber » Fri Jul 20, 2012 2:54 pm

I was thinking, we always ask new folks here to post pictures of their cars, but some of us that have been on here for a while haven't posted pictures of their cars lately.
We should let the new folks see what we have.

I'll start

My car hasn't changed:
1986 Cabriolet Best Seller
Aesthetically modified to be a little more Euro GTI-ish

^Last photo taken of it, in fact, back in 2009

It hasn't been much of anywhere either in the last couple of years, other than around town. The big blue brick moved in and has taken up all my time. :( :mrgreen: :|

Here is the infamous Crabby Cabby that is the reason this site exists.

The day we brought her home

Image


She came complete with rare gifts, and a totally shot motor.

Image


After a lot of hard work, this is what my wife and I were able to produce

Image

Image


Which resulted in a very happy Wife as it's her car.

Image


And it's not finished, nor do I think it ever will be. If we finish it, then that means that it will never change and I think that would just be rather sad. Besides, we have 4 other VW's to work on so nothing is ever finished around here.

Have to admit, I love that photo and maybe more so because I'm not in it, lol. Thanks for posting that up Brian.

Seems like the forums are relatively quiet, but I'll bring this one back from the dead...

In college I had a 1981 Cosmos Silver Rabbit Convertible. Have regretted it from the day I sold it. So the last couple of years, I've been keeping an eye out for the right one and finally... one popped up online. Just bought it a couple weeks ago. It's *nearly* identical to the one I had. Same year, same color, same transmission. The only differences are the wheels, the steering wheel, and the interior seat material. I am waiting for it to be delivered to Vegas. Should be here on Sunday evening or Monday morning. The anticipation is killing me.

It will need a little bit of body work behind the rear wheels, but otherwise is in pretty good condition. And only a hair over 62,000 miles on the clock.

For reference, here's a pic of my original one:

Welcome to the friendliest Forum...
Still waiting for pics, but not as bad as you are waiting.
