So in my non-gun time I spend my time with the Subaru community... I love racing the awd pocket rockets, and I've been a member of that community for about 7 years now... We had our 6th annual car meet last sunday and here are some video tid bits from it. I'm the loser singing with the red jersey on. lol.

We had a 100foot slip and slide.... jousting... food, etc, etc. I can't wait to hook something like this up for Gunatics! :D (I'm the sole organizer for this event btw).

Wait... You have "Non-gun time"?! heh We had partys like that at the veterinary clinic I worked at before my dad started his own... Those where great times... I broke my arm on a slip-n-slide like that once, but then again... I get broken bones at least twice a year and I have already had my one for this year.

I can't believe I missed hammy this year. :( I'm probably not welcome any more since I sold my suby anyway. So did Zoeb hit the slip and slide? Ewwwww. ;)

Everyone I have ever know who has a Subaru is nuts...usually in a delightful way but still nuts.

Im still a VW man. Problem is I am too broke to afford anything other than my 1992 Buick Riviera right now.

There is such a thing as a VW man? I learn something new everyday.

Come on now, play nice. If there can be ford guys, there can be veedub guys. ;) I'm with you though Adler. I had a modified Corrado G60 and loved it. It handled like a go cart, and at the time I owned it, was fast compared to contemporary pocket rockets of the time (before WRX, think more along the lines of Si's and the newer generation Celica GT-S's). I've always wanted to build one of those monster turbo'd beetles with the huge aluminum fin in leuo of the engine cover.

Well dont forget that some porsche engines bolt up to the old VW transmissions.

Around here I have noticed that every Japanese car including Subarus rust out really really fast while your VWs and BMWs dont. Althought the Japan made cars run well they skimp on other areas. I find the new VWs were always much easier to work on, were more comfortable, and more tightly put together in certain areas.

My fav old VW is a tossup between THE THING and the KARMANN GHIA.

Btw....I saw a turbo charged old VW superbeetle outrun a very street rodded 57 chevy one day at the track. The guy swapped out an old Porsche engine and upgraded the turbo.

I work on VW engines and they are by far the easeyist engines to work on and upgrade ever made. I have rebuilt sand rails an baja bugs for a few people and helped them with the VW bug engines.
Im thinking about pickicking up a 67 bug from someone down the road for $150 bucks, I already got a sand rail but I have learned so much about the VW engines in such a short time I cant keep from getting another one. You can do anything to bug engines you can think of and on a sand rail or something like a bug they feel like a 200 HP engine in a normal car.

YOU BASTARD! j/k May I ask how much you gave for it?

Id like to get a 1959 one and put the larger 1200cc engine in it. I saw one in my home town with a GM 4 cylinder in it out of a Fiero.
