1st and 3rd Saturday mornings at the Starbucks right off the I-480 Valley View bridge is an informal C&C - the best kind. Being about halfway between the eastern suburbs and the west side of Cleveland, there are usually a very nice showing of cars. If the weather is clear. Fortunately, this weekend was one of the last…
Got together with the guys (and girls) from our local VW Group, SFL MK7 and took a drive down to Miami. Grabbed breakfast and some photos in the Wynwood Art District, before breaking off with a few buddies and heading to Key Biscayne. All in all, a great day with some great people.
Hey all, we had a meet here in South Florida the other night and a few of us grabbed some quick photos at a Porsche dealer nearby as we headed out. Not bad for handheld shots in low light!
Turns out one of our neighbors owns this. According to him, this is one of eight VW Pumas imported to the US from Brazil. Also, I’ve included the ‘62 Austin Healey 3000 and ‘56 Jaaaaaaaag I found at a show yesterday.
My baby brother has a holiday home in Italy. He also took his test on an automatic car, a thing not often done on our side of the Atlantic, and so he has an automatic-only licence.
Day 2 (yesterday), took me from Las Vegas, NV to Durango, CO. The roads were great, the views were spectacular and I slept in my car down by the river in Durango. Actually.

I did a thing...
I apologize for being a bit late to the car meme party here, but I just got home and saw all of them. Here’s mine for my Passat.
This is the coolest Star Wars tribute I’ve ever seen from a car company! And I guess the Darth Vader theme rings true with the VW brass...
annnnnnd she’s back. Dealer replaced the whole fuel system per VW bulletin. Attempted to coordinate pick of her, mind you I’m in the burbs of Chicago and dealer was in Lafayette. Service person says we’ll bring her to you and save you the trouble of 5 hour drive :D Couldn’t be happier with the end result.
I’m not even sure what...
Saw this on my mail route today and had to snap a couple pics. It’s from Manitoba and just a pure beauty.
Update: Dealer sent samples to Purdue weeks ago, turned they don’t test diesel. VW Corp points dealer is correct direction, resent samples to another lab. In the meantime VW offered to reimburse rental, but the g/f and I made it work with sharing her car and me riding my bicycle around town/using company 94' Ranger.…
