What do we get when if we make it to old-timer? Is there a cool mug or t-shirt or something?

No longer have a TDI, but check in here every once in a while. Would like another go at a new diesel car, but may not happen in my lifetime.

I guess I'm also an old timer on the MB forums, having long since given my beloved old 240D to a good friend before I moved away (and could not take the car with me).

I wonder what ever happened to some of the real old timers who got kicked off, like Ric Woodruff and Mickey....?

I guess I technically belong to this "old timer" club, despite the fact that I don't feel like it should be that way... It has been more than 20 years I've been kicking around this website, despite not buying a TDI until 2006. (I like to do my homework)

Still have my 2004 Jetta Wagon TDI (BEW), and the wife's 2013 Jetta SportWagen TDI. However, the 2019 e-Golf I picked up last summer is such a blast to drive that I haven't needed to refuel the 2004 since Labor Day...
'19 e-Golf SE (w/ DAP)
'13 Jetta SportWagen TDI, 6MT (4 Wife) 55k and counting...
'06 Jetta_TDI Pkg_1 5spd (wife's DD for 169k, RIP totaled)
'04 Jetta_TDI_Wagon_GL 5spd (4 daily) Got Miles... 232k!
'90 Corrado_G60 Pkg_2 5spd (4 fun) Supercharged and half the fuel economy of a TDI!

That's a long time for any vehicle to sit. You need to get it out and blow the cobwebs out of everything.

I took the old Golf out today for a spin. Hasn’t left the barn in 3 months. Bought a 15 Passat last summer and haven’t been driving the golf. It was a good day to blow the cobwebs out of it

My 99 A3 got 'rusted' with the odo at 450,000km. I just found a rust free 98 so I'll be around a while longer
On many long journeys have I gone. And waited, too, for others to return from journeys of their own. Some return; some are broken; some come back so different only their names remain.

Hey BigAndy, way to go finding a rust free A3. I have one too that was a GT. They're getting pretty rare, especially up North.
