OMG - GABE IS TRADING TRANS AM FOR VW!!!
« on: November 09, 2004, 02:47:14 PM »
TO HELL WITH CAPS LOCK!!! I'M EXCITED AND IT'S APPROPRIATE!!!

YOU GUYS REMEMBER MY GOOD FRIEND GABE AND HIS BAD-ASS BLACK TRANS AM (WHICH IS NOW AT 400+ WHP AND TORQUE) FROM THE 2003 POST-NATIONAL GTG?  WELL, EVERYTIME HE DRIVES MY CAR HE COMES BACK WITH GRINS AND IS AMAZED AT HOW EFFORTLESSLY IT GOES AND CORNERS.  AND NOW - HE'S DECIDED TO SELL THE TRANS AM AND GET A GOLF GTI!!!!  WOO-HOO!!!!

The one he is looking at belongs to Christian Montcelli (sp?) who lives in CO Springs - it's a silver 2002 GTI that's been chipped, and has 55,000 miles on it. Does anyone know this car?  Christian, are you a member here?

If this deal goes through I say we have a GTG to celebrate.  I'll drive Gabe up, he'll pick up the car, we'll GTG and then Gabe and I will drive back together, two happy VW owners blasting down the highway.  You know we're going to see who is fastest! :wink:

HEY!!! WHAT HAPPENED TO THE HOT FIRE JUMPING UP-AND-DOWN JALAPENO BEAN (OR WAS THAT A SPUD?) EMOTICON?!?!?! THAT'S THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL DO IN THIS SITUATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D

I'll miss that beast of a Trans Am, though.  It is some of the best-balanced solid-axle Detroit Muscle I have ever known.

Well that's the second person to go from a Trans-Am/Camaro to a VAG product in 2 years!

That guy might be on the Vortex RM forums.

Very cool, very cool another convert!

Rusty,  you should check with www.edition719.com, which is the local Colorado Springs VW gruppe.

They definitely know that guy I will bet!

Wow, that's a pretty big change!  Very, very cool.  Does he have much experience driving GTIs or similar cars?  I'll be very interested to talk with him after he drives a GTI for a month and can compare it well with his old car.  Tell him "Hi" for me.

Yeah, I am glad to accept him into the "family."

Think of it like the mafia without doing the bad stuff...
