Thanks to you, my Margaret just heard me say Fl*pping H*ck, and now she's told the Mother in Law. I hope you're happy, and Mods, is there anyway you could maybe suspend FastbackerDez's account and remove that picture? After all, as soon as you change any aspect of the car from the original specifications, you can't really call it a volkswagen can you?fastbackerdez said:maybe you'd prefer this oval instead? :incheek:
i can just see you crusing to a show in this, with margret in the passenger seat (and the mother in law in the back of course
Let me categorically state now for once and for all that I'm just a regular guy, who shares a house with his wife and her mother, and knows all the VW part numbers, when all the changes happened (including when the distributor spring went from having 38 coild to having 39), just like the majority of most of you guys.Ross said:Oooooh I've just caught on, this bloke is another Troll tosser type person
i have to admit I don't know much about the modern Type 1's, I'd say something to do with the overall shape, or a slightly different profile maybe?StefFreak said:you seem to know your dubs
whats the difference between a 67 quarter light and a 68?
im up for a vw "quizz" :hangloose
Well obviously I knew that, however the question was about the quarterlight itself, I wasn't expecting that you'd have to resort to trickery in order to catch me out.fastbackerdez said:[buffer mode]
67 was the last year of the old style chrome lever catch- the 68 had the crappy black plastic, turn-then-twist ones that fall off :incheek:
Well I'm gald to hear it. Good to see someone knows that F.E.L.C.H. isn't about constantly sucking up to your fellow man. It's a scene where you earn your place in the F.E.L.C.H. chain. Last time I had a run in my old 'Brownie' the guys were lapping it up.mdsplitvw said:LOVE that awesome meet :incheek:

Ok do I have to spell everything out for you retards? Like the time I explained that the wheelnuts made during the 2nd week in june 1953 are .32mm longer than the ones from the previous week of manufacture?Orange Rat said:Sorry to be pedantic sir but how will putting fingers in your ears protect you from reading things on a forum??
Surely a blindfold would have done a better job.
