    Anywhere here own a new VW bug? We just bought one tonight. Actually went into the VW dealership looking for a Jetta but fell in love with the Beetle. You know, I used to make fun of these things - until I looked in & then test drove one. Took it home right then and there.
    So, if there are any other owners here, tell me how yours has held up. We're going to hop in and drive over to a friend's house at 2am to go watch the meteor shower... half the fun will be getting there and back.

    That way, when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Are you going to have the song "Pink Moon" playing while you drive? That would be nice. I too am going to check out the shower and so far there isn't a cloud in the sky.

    I'm on my second VW now and I am hooked. I had a Jetta for 10 great years and now have an '01.5 Passat. They are just plain fun to drive. Welcome to the family and good luck. Be sure to check out the VW Vortex provided in the post above.

    Hey Ryan, did you buy the bug to replace your Fiero? Or are you still going to restore one in the future? And what's with that Delorean link on your site? Every time I see that link I drool. [​IMG]
