Hi. Guess I’ve been lurking long enough. My name is Dick - I’m a Kansas guy – I live just south of Wichita. I've really enjoyed reading the posts, soaking up as much information as I can, and hearing what other folks have to say about their NBs. The folks in this group appear to be really nice too. It’s been a while since I’ve had a VW – 40 years to be exact. When I was a junior in college my dad bought me a 1965 bug (with sunroof) when the “new” 1966s came out. It cost $1999.00. This week I finalized a deal for a 2006 Salsa Red New Beetle, TDI, tiptronic/automatic, with package #2. Unfortunately, the cost of this new bug is considerably more than my first beetle! Its estimated delivery date is January 9th – I’ll be picking it up from Topeka, where my daughter and her family reside. Obviously I’m excited and will post pictures just as soon as it arrives. My guess is that my daughter and son-in-law will probably be the first ones to drive it (they're excited too).

Welcome from another Kansan. Marcus and I live in Wichita and we both have beetles. Yelojkt is a 2000 1.8T that belongs to Marcus and Rubie is a 2006 salsa red pkg 2 2.5L that belongs to me. Maybe we will see you around town sometime. If you see us don't be afraid to wave. We will wave back.:)

Hi. Thanks for the welcome Mary (I think it's Mary, right?). I'm very familiar with your car from the beautiful pictures you have posted. I've always kinda been a "red" guy, and when I saw your car I knew that was the color for me. You have very good taste! Of course your husband's car is beautiful also. I privately emailed him a while back and he graciously answered my questions. I also tried to send you a private message, but for some reason the mail did not go through. Thanks for the note.

Thank you for the kind words about rubie. When you get your beetle give Marcus or I a hollor and we will have to meet up with you and your family and let our beetles hang out and make friends. :) Mary

Welcome to the site from another Kansan...

I not sure if it a good idea to have your daughter drive it before you get it, you may not get it back:D I love our beetle you will too..
