      At this point it’s just a small number of individuals, but any more than this will be fuel to the fire.

      [/QUOTE]

      What the... NOBODY who speaks a lick of German could say that and not immediately associate it with Auschwitz. :eek:

      That's what I think, too. The ones with 7 forward gears need some sort of servo to clear the gate when certain parameters are met, but this shouldn't. For this a 7 speed makes sense. For the Corvette...

      Hmmm... I'll break it to the wife. I guess I'll have to sell the Bug. Going from 50 hp to 400 (ish) is going to be quite the culture shock! :laugh:

      Actually I could see this one working pretty well, even without nanny electronics to free up the shifter. The granny gear isn't used in normal operation, so that and reverse could be locked out with...

      But what glorious noises they were!

      Rest in peace, Herr Mezger. :(

      Didja get it? Didja? :)




      :laugh:

      I'm going to try to remember that one. :D :beer:

      $20,000 is just the salary. It costs a LOT more than that to employ a person at those wages.

      And apparently you can lock out the independent front suspension. That's impressive technology! :P

      I've had two Toyota Siennas with automatic sliding doors. One had one automatic one and one had two. All three failed. On a minivan it makes more sense because the doors are difficult for some people...

      Firstly, people bitched and moaned all the time about breaking door handles on VWs of the era. I know because I was behind the parts counter. I heard it almost every time. They were right in their...

      I would remove that throttle cable bracket and slot the holes a bit in order to line it up a bit better. It will prevent excess wear where the cable exits the sheath and where it rides in the cam...

      That is a superficial problem. The handle works much like a late Beetle handle, but I've literally never heard of one of those failing. I've sold dozens of the Mk1 and Mk2 VW handles back when I sold...

      That's the way it was. They were everywhere through the 1980s, then really started to fade after that.



      :laugh: :beer:



      They were cheap to buy new, but they were expensive used cars. See...

      That's coming together nicely. I didn't realize that there were so many differences between the engines of bay windows and Vanagons. I remember the differences in exhaust ports, but did that directly...

      But the cool people don’t live where it snows. Or something.

      As I said, I don’t doubt it will happen, I just think it’ll be difficult. My guess is 20 years or so, too. :beer:

      Now add in slippery conditions, dynamic scenarios with people and cars, low visibility because of weather, and cars, sidewalks, roads, trees and grass all being the same color and texture. It’s far...
