Default have i flipped my lid?!?!

for the past week i have been mulling it over, and over in my head on what to do about the corvette, i mean its a nice car, drives great, but its just not me anymore, i am kinda sick of following in my parents steps with intrests, first it was mustangs, then it was corvettes... so i have come to a decision, i have decided to sell the corvette, and for what i can get out of it, i can see clear of it, and i can get another project that i have always wanted since i was a little kid. i have always been in total love with the VW type 3's especially the squarebacks, sure they are a 2 door wagon, but there is a certain coolness factor to them, especially when you can drop them for free, and you can just slam the shit out of them on bags... i'm probally gonna take a look at this one next weekend after the portland meet






and just in before the haters, i know it looks a little homely, but you can do some trick shit to them



this guy is running the setup that i want, simple front, and back

I've always like old VW's that are slammed. They have a lot of coolness factor. And I wonder what size tire is on the front of the red one, lol

yeah, still on the fence about the exhaust, i have seen where people just run a 90* bend out of the header, and weld on a flowmaster, and sounds good
