    Oh, they are around. I'm back home in DFW. Too busy. Trying to get the house ready to sell, got a new job. Life is a bitch. I'm spending my saturday filling out listing information for our house. Whoop de doo. When I'm not busy at home, my daughter is also getting her house ready to sell so I get to go over there and paint, repair stuff and have loads of fun.

    I got some terrible news at the Madera spring fling VW show a couple weeks back.

    I was wandering around and checking out the show and then I heard someone call my name out, so I went over.

    It was a long lost pal who bought my 1970 beetle back in 1987, it was his first Volkswagen. When he bought it from me he was 15!

    I put all of my skills into that 1970 bug and it was a well known car around town. I worked at a Volkswagen parts and sales place when I was building it, so it was top of the line at the time. He told me that when he saw me driving it he decided he had to have it. If I remember correctly I sold it to him for 1200 bucks and a brand new Honda moped.

    And I let him make $100 payments monthly to pay it off.

    I later heard through various grapevines that he thought I ripped him off.

    So when he called out my name I presumed he still was not a fan of mine.

    I was wrong, he kept crediting me for getting him into the VW scene.

    He's also a big fan of my pops. My dad was friends with Bruce Meyer.

    We are planning some get togethers soon. He has a beautiful early 60's ragtop.

    He kept saying to me while looking at his car stuff like "obviously you know this is the wrong decklid"

    I just kept telling him his car was boss.

    Then he told me someone had stolen my/his 1970 beetle and burned it.

    He salvaged the 1641 dual port engine (it was a brand new engine when I sold it to him)

    I had searched for that car online for way too many years.

    It was quite depressing to learn it was gone.

    The fucking a certain girl in that beetle has something to do with my nostalgia I suppose.
