"Ziggy" Fallon's 06 TDI

Here he his, finally starring in his very own photo thread. As of now, Ziggy is all stock. I plan on adding a spoiler, euro plate, and 25% tint. That's all for now. Eventually I want to get a complete respray to get rid of the rock chips up front and on the fenders, paint my calipers and get Ziggs some new shoes. But that's quite a bit down the road.

I live in OKC and bought Ziggy in Scottsdale, AZ. My Dad lives in PHX, so I flew down there and he drove back with me. This was shortly after we crossed back over the OK/TX state line. Dad was driving and I was enjoying the ridiculously huge dash. :cool:


This is my pup, Truvy and Ziggy in the background. Ignore the fact that my lawn needs some serious mowing. :D


He's a happy shiny boy. :)


So... I love him so much that I sometimes stalk him from inside the house. HE HE. :rolleyes:


Ziggy's Purple Gerber Daisy in the bud vase. It suits him well. :)

Thanks! Truvy is loving Ziggy. If I say car or ride in any way, she flips out. She loooooves car rides. I'm hoping to take her with me on some GTG's. :)

Just for a frame of reference... This is "Shaniqua", my 2007 Impala. She was destroyed in the hail storm. $11k worth of damage on a car worth $14k. I oculd have bought her back from the insurance company, but it was more economical to buy a new car, so I went for Ziggy. :) I'll miss her, but I'm glad I have Ziggy now.

Video of me kind of freaking out during the storm. Those hail stones were the size of baseballs. Freaking baseballs! :eek:
YouTube - Oklahoma City Hail Storm 5/16/10

One of the reasons the cost to repair was so high was because with so much glass broken, errr obliterated, it was embedded in the carpet and leather. Carpets would have had to be completely replaced.


This was the day following the storm, the heat caused the glass to start sagging.


From the inside.








So..... who wants to come visit Oklahoma during the month of May? ha ha. :rolleyes: Anywho, that's why I was in the market for a new car, and I'm so glad I got an NB, although, I do miss Shaniqua. She had a huge 3.9L V6 and a trunk that could fit bodies... plural. Not that I know from experience or anything. :p

Wow! I couldn't watch my car be destroyed like that. Knowing me, I would have laid down on Probie to protect him from the hail! lol

That is INSANE! Please tell me that a garage or a car port is in the future for Ziggy to protect him from hail next time!

Yes! After I recover from paying out the deductibles on three separate claims (2 on house, 1 on car) I'll start saving for a carport. I'm hoping to be able to build one by the end of next March, just in time for the April/May storm season. I was quoted about $2800. I have a friend who's a welder, so we're thinking he and and I can get materials ourselves, rent an auger to dig the holes, and do the welding inside of a weekend and keep the cost under $1000. I have plenty of time to save for all that, so it should be doable, and Ziggy shouldn't have to suffer the same fate as Shaniqua.

A GREAT Beetle Day. :D

So.... yesterday I got Ziggy's birth certificate in the mail, about 10 days after I ordered it! :) he he. It's sooooo cute. My roommate rolled her eyes at me when I said: "Guess what I got!" :) I love that they do this! Plus. Another happy moment came when a friend of mine asked me if I would like to have my calipers painted. Ummm, duh! So glad I'm going to get some help, as I'd be afraid to attempt it all by myself. :D I shall post updates.

Ziggy got two new VW oem TDI badges in the mail today! My very first "mod" ha ha. Found them on e-bay for $15/ea + free shipping. Win! I put them on the front panels in front of the door below the mirror on each side. I wanted to be a bit different. Let me know what you think. :)

I saw that she was also in OKC. SixChuter/john and I were planning on doing a gtg at Pop's sometime in the near future. That would be awesome to add a third. I keep seeing NBs everywhere and I keep thinking I need to start tagging them to get them on the org. I'd love to have more NB peeps here in OKC.
