Fuel Economy: Is just one piece of the puzzle that is our bottomless appetite for oil. Cars donít have to be consumable. Instead of throwing them away, we can rebuild them, better. We have the technology.

I'm planning on take a boat load of soda with and handing it out during the car show. I'll have the red Liberty (CRD) and I'll also be doing a drawing for some gift certificates for the web site so be sure to stop by and get a drink and register.

I must say, I was a little suprised that my Golf was the highest mileage car there... as there are many more across the land boasting much higher numbers. I EXPECT to be challenged next year.

damn, I didnt win anything that sucks, looks like whoever told me to be in the Radical class was wrong and I would have been better off in the Modified I guess ohh well.
Tomo, what mods do you have, just curious since I have a mk6 too.
any other mk6 besides you and gottafly, I know his mods.
