They're not Extinct - YET!

We took this shot before the last race this year at Thunderhill and I though it would be great to show everyone at least four of the aircooleds for next year.

 

And you thought they were extinct, but here they come again, the Dinosaurs! .............

If i was to come over and put a wheel on one of the bugs .could i get into the next pic you take ..And hold up my can of raid .some how i feel left out .ok no raid .just my ugly mug . also i believe you will need a bigger camera .Randy your nose looked good in that shot .now word of advice never take a pic at the racetrack . the car never looks the same at the end of that night .it did turn out good .pepsiblue see how they care .you.ll be in the next one . minnie9 brings a pinto we can take a pic of our cars i know we will be buzzed by all those pesky bugs but what the hay .

Oldtimer,I hope to get a picture of all the aircooleds on march 3rd, and it would be great if you got in the shot also,now you got to remember getting in the picture means that you have a soft spot for the old dinosaurs :D ..............could this mean that Oldtimer really likes the old bugs,even though he talks about raid and leaking oil :o ???????..................tune in..............Randy#53

Nick,

 

This is a picture of Pepsiblue (Bill Stipe) from baytown, the newest aircooled member.

 

What is funny about this shot is it was taken in the year (1967) I was born!!! please make a note of that so he sees it and could you put it tin the same column for comments.

 

Thanks.

 

Randy

:ph34r: thanks.....@%&@#&_@....randy. guess i'm going to have to be more judicious in how i share my photos.

 

ot, i've got a vw t-shirt you can wear for the photo op. that way you'll blend in and the ford guys wont know your consorting with the enemy.

 

and what a time for aj (52) to be cruising this thread. if everything goes ok, the first race is SAS March 3rd.

THR is tentatively set for April 27. let you know as time gets closer.

I almost wish I could be a crew chief for all the aircooleds and stand back at the races to watch how they run so I can help with suspension setup,lap times etc......................but then again I also want a first place trophy and the bragging rights for a win in the Pro Sedans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....................And I think good ole Herb might take it personal if I even considered putting someone else in the driver seat(well my oldest son is 10,maybe he will take over when I lose my hand to eye coordination :D )come on march 3rd................Randy
