I got here through Runtrod, got there through BugNaked. Damn it's a tangled web we weave. I've been to other places, but none come close to the bashing one gets here.

I was here way earlier than when I actually registered, I know that. I think I found this during STF's heyday or from Nick's site that I stumbled onto.

A post on another hot rod board (non-vw) said "You gotta see this!"

The poster was referring to the runtrod.

From runtrod site to volksrod site to buying a bug . . .
