Needs to go for (insert your favorite swear word here)ing e-Check. The tags expired in January, so I had to get temps to get him to a (insert your second favorite swear word here)ing e-Check station.Growler said:why the paper plate? let spdbuge expire for more than 13 months?
great to see my mentor back on the road again.. even if i don't have my beetle anymore.
I wouldnt mind a nice set of steelies for the winter :wink:
Love those retro rims. Really shows that VW didn't lose the spirit of the original bug when they designed the new one. Sometimes it's hard to see that with all the new fancy rims on the market.silverspeedbuggy said:As promised! I just shot these after Speed got his new windsheild wipers, front turn signal bulbs, new remote batteries, and some junk cleared of the trunk and back seat.
Please excuse the lousy quality. I got these right as the sun was setting.
I made those myself! I still have my original alloys, and the BRM replicas as well as these steelies with air-cooled hubcaps.Robert Rogers said:Love those retro rims.

Thansk for the kind words!Jenne said:What a cutie!
I hope your partner can bounce back from this turn of events... sometimes you just have to cut your losses. My husband had to do the same thing. Took him about six months to find a permanent new job, but he is so much happier.
Cool pics! Thanks Jay! Yes, I remember that show well. It was a lot of fun. I'm hoping to go again this year.bugsy98nb said:It's Soooooooo Awsome to see Speedy back on the road !! I remember when I first met him and you at bugfest in 2003. Gosh has it been that long already . I remember talking to you and saying I had Speedys twin and you asked Bugsys milage and I said like 33xxx something and you frowned because speedy had more milage . hehe I sometimes wish I kept bugsy but who knows one day I may get another 98 . Going thru some pics on my PC I found some old pics ( 35 mm ) of Speedy hehe . From Bugfest 2003
I just realized I posted this last message almost exactly on Speed's 10th birthday. He was built on March 24 1998, and that last post was the 28th!All I want to do is drive my bug. I'm so sorry it took me so long to get him back on the road. I fixed his turn signal today and got him e-Checked (our asinine emissions check). Speed will have up-to-date tags by this weekend, his hydraulic system flushed, and maybe a bath.
Oh yeah, I topped off his tank (he was 3/4 full) last night and got some more pep back. The gas got a little old sitting all winter.
