Damn, I remember going to the very first SFBAVW Gruppe drive from the New Dimensions car show back in '98 or '99. I met Tom for the first time just before that drive. Back then it was just a bunch of emails amongst folks who were going to that car show and wanted to meet up for a drive afterwards. P...

I'm not going to even look at a bike today but I'm doing a 35 mile ride tomorrow. I already have 32 miles this month so far and it's only the third day! If I keep up this pace I'll have ridden about 300 miles by the end of the month or more. Too bad I live on The Peninsula and can't join you folks o...

On a MKII the best way is with a step bit in your cordless drill, rotorzip or Dremel, In that order. Projectors, use a lens to focus light, they are supposed to use a smaller bulb for more light. If I remember correctly. Projectors throw out a very even dispersion of light compared to just about ev...

A couple of months ago my wife, out of the blue, told me that she wants to replace her mini-van with a VW SUV when my GLI is paid off. I had evil thoughts about getting a Tiguan TDI. I then told her that we're going to save our money and she will continue to drive her mini-van for a few more years s...

I no longer get a rise from a loud exhaust. True story: my brother sold me a '71 240Z when I was 18 or 19 that he had cut the muffler off of and replaced with just a tip. Noisy? You better believe it! Because the car was carbureted, it made this beautiful rumbling burbling whenever I let off the gas...

If you could see how poorly the old manifold was made with such thin tubing you'd see why it cracked. It looks like it was welded by a 2 year old.

if you move the air as stated earlier then you aren't talking about this scenerio exactly.

The plane takes off because the conveyor is making contact with the tires but the plane's engines push against the air so the plane will move forward relative to the ground so it will get enough lift from air passing over the wings to overcome the gravity holding it to the ground. The wheels and tir...
