Midwestern VDubber here

Postby Maggiolone » Tue Sep 20, 2011 12:58 pm

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself here. I'm new to the manual transmission world with my first stick shift car (at age 27), a 1984 VW Jetta 1.7 gas. It's not my first VW, though.

:D

Welcome. I drove an mkv rabbit for a little while a few years ago.

Used to frequent vwvortex but now just read the car lounge there.

TCL is fun. I have a MKIV Jetta; it's automatic and my daily driver. The MK1 is a little too much of a "relic" for daily use.

I have totally seen your username on Vortex. I used to frequent the midwest subforum. Now I'm solely on TCL, I go by DubnMiatafan. Welcome!

I have never posted in TCL but I read it every day and have done so for over 3 years. I make up for those posts over here.

Yup, I've seen you in the "spotted" thread for Chicago. There's a meet-up in Skokie tonight, but the Jetta's at a shop on Pulaski...
