Banana Slug

Yep, the old VW runs pretty well. I drove it to work 3 days a week (39 miles each way, all back roads) all year up until mid-October. It got mid to upper 20's for mileage; usually around 28. It is set up more for performance than mileage, but it still does okay compared to what they really got back in the day.
And thanks all for the warm welcome.
