Oh hai, thanks for stopping by.

Name's Paul. Like my front valence? :p

I have a daily driving 2015 Golf TSI in Tungsten Silver.

Before I bore you with another stupid thread about another stupid 7, please allow me to bore you with a little bit about myself.

Over the years I have been to a few VW shows, the biggest one on the planet being Worthersee in Austria. Here I am in Velden Austria with The Colonel Bynum and my German brother Jens.

I love Bavaria (specifically The Chiemsee region). Bavaria and beer. Bavaria and rum. Bavaria and basically anything actually.

I like long walks on the beach in the springtime and my favorite color is blue.

Here are a few pics from my previous VWs. Yes I know, they all suck.

Once upon a time I owned a few Volkswagens...

'01 Jetta TDI

Upgraded to '04 R32 (at Mount St. Helen's overlook in WA State).

Moved back east and brought a few MK1's with me (^80 British Columbia Canada Rabbit).

'77 Rabbit

'78 Rabbit that I transformed..

''77 16v that I got from Montana

and my all time favorite mk1, my '80 Rabbit L "Ute" (named after the original owner).

MK3 TDI that I had for a minute..

Harlequin that I have for a bit.

traded the R32 in for a MK2 TT

MKV GTI that I did some mods on

MK6 that I had for maybe a year.

...and now...

a stock MK7 Golf
