This new tug that is being worked on right now. No word of when it will be ready for us, but our trip is planned. Heading for FL beaches on Xmas Eve and hitting the Outback Bowl on the way home to watch my alma mater, Iowa.

I will need to change my avatar now. Sad to see the white one go, but it has transmission issues. Hopefully, this one does not. And, at least it matches the trim color on our Uhaul.

Well, we still don't know what is going on with this vehicle (That is me talking to the salesman, telling him that we are buyers who know that lots of buyers would not go for this van, as it lacks normal American amenities and rides like a pickup, since it is built like one. We are ready for one amenity though - we bought a new radio for it. The one in it has a cassette tape.). Our offer was accepted subject to them fixing the brakes to be safe towing the VT and replacing the front bumper. I am not sure they knew the bumper was cracked; happily I saw it when we drove it. The brakes are done, but we don't know about the bumper. Kevin is calling today.

The van has a couple of dings that don't show in the pix. Our white one is better. It is hard to swap a van that has dings for one that does not, but this blue one has less than half the miles and no wobble from the transmission issue like our white one. I wish VW still imported them. We like them, and so do lots of others. The dealer said they had lots of calls on this van, but Kevin went for it before the dealer even had the van. He saw it on the Internet right away.

Jane, I doubt we would be coming down I-77, as we are coming from IL and going to Naples. That is, if we get the van. Trip is planned, tickets to the bowl are purchased, van yet to be home here.

A 50 year old Alfa Romeo as a tow for a Bambi. Either it's a cute pose for a Christmas card or his pockets are much deeper than mine.

Our new TV should be picked up tomorrow. We signed the paperwork last night, and they think it will be out of the paint shop tomorrow.

So, off to FL on Xmas Eve. We signed up to party with the folks the night before on New Year's Eve. I am a grad of the College of Education, so we are going to their part of the party.

Hopefully, this new van will last until VW sees the light and lets the US (and us) buy their Amarok pickup. We saw one in Germany last summer and want one, but they don't sell it in the US and Canada.

Congratulations. I love it.
Especially the lack of rivets.

Thanks Carl, When I reassemble the only rivets that may be used are to hold on the Boler emblem.

I checked out your paint job pictures.
That's how I knew there were no rivets.

That really is a very nice paint job. One of the best I have ever seen.

Do you know what kind of paint was used?
