Topic: Hello from a newb

Well,  kinda. I used to be on vzi....i was hoping to find out a little more about the lazy otter meets as it's not a million miles away from us and thought it might be fun to bring the bugs out of hibernation.
So anyway,  hello!  default/hello

Re: Hello from a newb

Thank you for the welcome.....so what does everyone drive around here? I'm afraid I'm old school...Though I also have a newbee cab, it really doesn't do it for me like the others!

Re: Hello from a newb

Ah, for those who don't know I've got a 1971 1302LS cabrio in texas yellow and a 1963 standard gulf blue bug, both unmodified apart from an imperceptible 2" lowering on the cabrio which was too nose happy for my liking!
Uhm and someone has put the wrong headliner in the 63 and gone mad with upholstery vinyl... but apart from that....  default/lol

Re: Hello from a newb

Yay,  there's life out there!  Hello!  I'd post pics of my bugs if only I knew how.  Does photobucket do the trick?  I also tried to add an avatar pic but you can see how successful I was there!
Oh and ermmm so you don't get a shock at the lazy otter.....I'm not a chap  default/lol

Re: Hello from a newb

Doh...Soz.

Photobucket is the way ahead for posting pics, likewise for the avatar.  Let me know if you have any further issues and I may be able to help..I'll just check if I have the permissions and the know-how.

OK, it would appear I can update peoples profiles but it's easy to upload your own direct from your own system.  The images need to be less that 100x100 pixels, and less than 30kb.  Pictures for the forum require an upload from PhotoB, though there is an FB page as well ;-)  https://www.facebook.com/search/str/spl … ywords_top

Re: Hello from a newb

Thanks very much. I'm not a purist by any stretch of the imagination but I'm kind of over the heavily modified thing.  It's an age related opinion I reckon, the more time passes the more I'm seduced by stock bugs!
Love my boys. Just really need to take them out more.  I've had so many projects on the go over the years and now that I've settled on two really sound bugs, I really should drive them more often.  I'm waiting for the weather to sort itself out.  Nothing beats the putputput of an air-cooled engine imo  default/wink

Well, the next time the Cambridge Crew will be 'Ottering' is 18th May. Sounds like the perfect time to give one or the other a run  default/wink

Very nice bugs!  Good to see someone else flying the flag!  Too many T25s in my opinion   default/wink
