Thanks for dropping by my blog.

Just thought I chuck in a link here for those that love what my Golf is about, and why I'm so obsessively into it.

GTG @ yarra bay !

on the 11th of march, some of the boys (and girls) of vwwatercooled had a GTG at yarra bay (near la perouse). the main reason for the meet was to discuss about the VW Nationals coming up soon on Easter Sunday, but it was more of a day to show off how the loved dubs are going and have a good BBQ and lunch. it was a good day, with the sunday weather being forgiving even when the sun was out. i'd say about 10-15 dubs showed up (including the odd audi, some beetles and the corrado). after lunch was just a discussion on how the watercooled VW's will be judged and what categories there will be. points were assigned to particular traits of a car and was briefly finalised when most people agreed. then it was a trip down to the beach for some baking and vortex throwing. ended the day with a tyre change involving 10 people (ok, so it was more like 1 person changing and the other 9 watching), and a parade down the main streets in the VW's until everyone slowly split up and went on their merry way home.

here are some pics!

and the rest of the pics.

VW nationals, here we come.

I WISH I had beaches like that close to me. Looks like a good time.

Are there many Ventos down under? I know that in Europe they are not nearly as popular as they are in the States, but what about Australia? I ask because I saw a picture of a Vento in your shots.

Very few Mk3 Vento/Jetta models here in Australia. According to VW sales stats, only about 314 were sold locally! I'd say 100 of those may have been written off already too. There may be some imports though I highly doubt. They are definitely rare to find, though they're worth next to nothing to the uninitiated. Because of this, I'm hoping to find one in a few years time so I can do a front end swap :) Now THAT will definitely be something new in Australia!
