    Right on, Andy Rooney! Andy Rooney said on '60 Minutes' a few weeks back: I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment...

    About 4 months ago i stumbled apon this web site and found out that there was alot more than wheels and a body kit you could do to your passat. After about twenty min of looking around I decided it was time to wash my car and take some pics. Nothing is really done yet but lots of dreams...

    Used Andy Bar - for Tiptronic (although I used it fine on my manual). Bar & welded 'posts' are in excellent condition - but the bolts/nuts going through the posts are bent. Will need to cut them off & get new ones. Make an offer! :thumbup:

    Couldn't find my original post from when I joined awhile ago (think before I even owned my B5) so thought I'd repost since my webhost is back up and running. Here's my B5 wagon I bought back in December of 2001. I traded my 97 Jetta GLX in for her. My Jetta had GTi front end and DE rims...

    First time was this past Friday night. I (FINALLY) find a spot to park but had to go around the block to get it. When I turn the block, what do I see? AJchenmph's green machine parked in the spot I wanted. Second time. Illegally parked in front of the Transfiguration church. Hahahahahaha.
