    Ok! I just got the joke! Good one! Not being a partaker myself I'm a bit slow on the uptake! (intake?) At any rate, what is the verdict? Go? No go?

    I'm amazed at all theses different engines you all talk about that I didn't even know existed!

    A dirty big boulder took this bit off about 3 weeks back. Sure glad neither of them hit the windscreen!

    Oh yes, we got a pan heater glued to the oil pan. So far so good!

    It was a mild day today at -6 so it didn't freeze up too bad. We had an hour's drive home too so all was good. We do have the automatic car washes, that episode was chronicled earlier! 🙄 Yes I do want to repaint the bonnet anyway at some point as it is sun bleached badly. You will have noticed that parts of the front and the passenger's door are different shades of green already so it will get interesting to see how close the color comes out this time. If I can get access to the tints I can make it right myself.

    Just for chuckles I took a shot of Franklin in the wand wash bay. My shop pickup takes up most of that bay past the end of the curtain and sticks out into the isle and making it awkward to get around. Look at the room here! Sorry about the fog, it was pretty damp in there. I see we got our first road rash. Sad but part of the game I suppose, if you drive them...

    Ok thanks! There have never been any 3 cylinder VW engines on this side of the pond to my knowledge. The first Rabbit (Gulf in your land) diesels in '76 were 1.3 liter n/a. They quickly upped them to 1.6, the turbo diesel came here in '84 (I had one) then sometime in the late '80s they dropped the n/a diesel. We have not seen an n/a diesel since. Interesting!

    No I was thinking more along political lines but we won't go there on this site. Off limits I believe.

    Well - there are some other indicators beside the size of those manuals... 😆

    So is that why Kinder eggs are illegal in the US of A? Maybe them Yankies is smarter than they looks... Hmmm?

    Sorry! I didn't mean to offend you, I was just giving you a hard time in reference to some posts a while back about Pete...
