Title: The FNG
Post by: bodaddy on October 12, 2004, 07:04:58 PM
Hey all, just wanted to say hi.  I don't know how I stumbled onto this page.  I just Monday bought a Burgundy station wagon.   Or as I was told on another board a Colorado Red Variant.  I kind of like that.  So if all goes well I pick it up tomorrow.  
So just wanted to say hi and maybe I will see some of you around.

Welcome! Sometimes stumbling takes you in interesting directions.

Yeah it does.  So here is the stupid question is that really what the color is called?

I'm not a Passat owner, but I've always heard it as Colorado Red, so  I'm under the impression that's the real name of it.
Regardless, welcome to our corner of the Internet.  It's great to have you here.  I'm sure we'll meet up soon.  There are many people here that have extensive knowledge of your car and, more importantly, all are willing to lend a hand.  Until later...

Now that is what I am talking about!  The CRX group I hung out with was pretty tight.  I was hoping to find the same here.  Once I figure out what all is out there, the transformation will begin!  I just have to convince my wife I need an air compressor now!
Thanks all

Yes, the color really is Colorado Red, up to 2003 or 2004, then they changed it slightly and call it something else now.

Welcome to the Cult of Rocky Mountain Club B5, now prepare to max out your Visa Card and really enjoy life.

Man I had that thing maxed out with my CRX!  My Wife just informed me I was not allowed to do any wiring myself though.  That just took half the fun out of it.
I can't wait to break that wagon in though!

Welcome to the club for sure!  So, after you become an old-time clubber, does that make you a FOG?

RIght around the corner!  If I did make it out it would be pretty late.  I don't get off of work until 6:00 in Aurora, it is usually around 7 when I get home, so maybe.
