  1. Found these Turbo S door handles and installed them onto the 1999, replacing icky gooey plastic and shiny chrome handles looks, feels, and works so much better.
  2. I actually came here looking for this -- I need to do a sync 3 conversion (I have the 4.2" display on my 2018 F150 XLT). Any suggestions on where to find the display and bezel?
  3. Going to get this car out of the garage and drive it this spring (hopefully in time for the rod run in nearby Pigeon Forge). It needs a battery and I have to pull the carb and intake manifold as its been sitting for 10 years or so. Last person to drive it was my dad ~2008 and I started it the year he passed away (2010). I miss the sound of that 283, but not as much as I miss the person it reminds me of.
  4. My Beetle (2016 Beetle Classic 1.8T with stage 1 tune), Becky's Beetle (2013 Beetle 2.0T R-Line), and our oldest daughter's Beetle (1999 New Beetle 2.0 SOHC). Too much to mention. Their cars need tires & brakes before Spring.
  5. Took a picture of it...or something. Photo taken near Deals Gap, TN.
  6. Well, it came apart easy enough. Becky and I had the front end off in 1.5 hours, pulled as much as was needed to see the damage. This is the worst of it. The frame isn't bent, but the core support, radiator & supports, and pretty much entire a/c system are trashed. I guess its a good thing it has a giant hole in the roof for warm days.
  7. Welp, its that time again everyone. This one was parked when someone decided to park their lifted truck on the hood. Needs core support, impact material, fenders, hood, and radiator mounts. Runs like a DREAM and its a low mileage (64k) example. Interior is 7/10, so I'll probably replace the interior with tan at the wife's request (this is gonna be HER car). At first I was thinking parts car, but with a clean title, airbags didn't go off, and little real damage I think its a keeper. Towed back from Toccoa, GA where it was a one owner little old lady car, so I'm totally expecting the
  8. At one point in time, I found it impossible to even get pulled over in Knoxville, TN. I'd be driving along like a maniac, the car would pull behind me, run my plates, and inevitably turn off somewhere. I'm not sure if it was my uncle and cousin (City of Knoxville police) or another cousin (Knox Co police), or perhaps that the mayor and I shared a last name...but somehow it just happens that way.
