Post A fan of old bugs
As far back as I can remember, I've always really liked old VW Bugs. I grew up watching the Herbie movies, and being a fan of G1 Transformers, I always was a fan of Bumblebee.

I don't currently own a Bug, but I eventually want to get a 1963 and fix it up to be a Herbie replica. I've seen Mad Mike's on here and even saw the youtube mini-doc. Needless to say, I'm jealous.

I currently drive an 06 Subaru STI, which is great for daily driving in the constantly changing MO weather. The 300hp AWD combo makes it a blast to drive. I hope to eventually post of pics of my very own Bug sometime, but in the mean time, I'll just have to settle with drooling over everyone else's cars.

Here's a pic of my car. And a few of Travis Pastranna signing it.

Welcome, nice STI. Several of us usually get together and camp in our buses around the 100 Acre Wood Rally. Kevin (who used to be on here) has a grey lifted WRX wagon. You might of seen it around. It's a fun car. I prefer driving it more than riding in the passenger seat.

Not that far of a jump from Subaru to VW. Several of us have them for daily drivers. My gf has a Crosstrek that I drive often and do all the maintenance on.

Welcome.
Go ahead and find a good project and get on it...they all take time to get going.
Come to the vw show on May 6th in STL and meet some of us

There is a '63 ragtop in Bonneville for sale for a good price if your interested.

We just got our first Subaru..doubt my wife will be rally racing her outback though
