VWGirl, VWGoddess, Jan, SpeedyJim, VeeDubber, Me, John Conally, the other
John and many that I've no doubt forgotten to mention... many of us are
still around. The only one I'm certain won't drop in anymore is Bob Hoover -
a legend in his own time.

Still, I profoundly feel what you're saying. It was like a prohibition
speakeasy. Subtle, intimate, profound.

I do miss it over forum-anonymity.

Good to see you're still around. Watcha drivin' these days?

Chris

BTW:

Whatever happened to the guy out in Vegas? Forgive me, I've drawn a blank,
but I met him once IRL.

guy in vegas? not a clue

I am driving a 2002 jetta wagon at the moment... this thing has something they call air conditioning? never heard of it before. weird stuff!

i need to put an aircooled back on the road... aside from my 64 notch... and need to find the keys to my 78 westy as it is campin time!

i just miss what we had going on 10 years ago... when i could sit in front of ramva for hours. i guess nothing is ever quite the same as it once was.

The place is still here... kinds, it's just in a different place :-)

It's the people that have gone.

Back in the day, there wasn't much besides RAMVA... Now there is an over-abundance of forums to choose from. They seem to be a lot more "Nationalised" rather than an international place.

I guess we're all looking at it through rose tinted glasses a bit too, plus I was only a spring chicken when I read RAMVA all those years ago... I'm 34 now. Practically a different person!

Google says: "Did you mean Hair Conditioning?"

Though I confess that, living in miami, I would DIE to have AC in the Ghia.

Campin' time? Ours just ended, when nighttime temps hit 80 again.

Good to see you active here.

Chris

It was Eric A. in Vegas he moved to Salt lake to work with John C but after finding out what type of person he was moved on but is still in that area.

Chris I'm surprised that I haven't seen more Aircooled VW's running around during the winters while I'm there.

VWGirl As I said not long ago I think alot of people were just here to try to bash me, and couldn't handle the truth that I did nothing wrong and now enjoying retirement.



lets see how this gets things going...lol

On a whim I just did a search for this group. Looks like this thread is pretty dated. I was here back in the 00s as well. Its good to see a few names to jog my memory.
