Hi all - I am new here. I have a 2001 techno blue GLS. She is getting a little long in the tooth but I love her too much to send her away. So, I'm rebuilding her and fully plan to drive her as long as I can buy parts ;)

Right now she has 110,000 miles. I'm thinking to install a west wings body kit and re-paint her soon. Right now, i'm getting ready for the ECS timing belt kit, then new shocks and struts.

Hopefully I won't need a new motor any time soon - that would suck :(

Anyway, hello all :)

- Tom

Well, since parts are still availablef or 50 year old VW's, you should be able to continue driving the car until you die. :)

BTW, 110,000 on the engine is barely even middle aged if maintenance is done correctly.
