Mmmm Skoda Cake

Skoda is a VW subsidiary that I always wished would be brought Stateside.


Ninja Cats Drive Toyota Corollas (Apparently)

7 11 2008

I would have gone with Volkswagen Sciroccos as the ninja cat’s preferred mode of transportation. They don’t even make those anymore (until now).

The ad’s not going to make me a fan of Toyotas any time soon, but hey, you give credit where it’s due.

Like a Glove!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:

I could park a school bus between your ass cheeks.

Let Me Just Grab My Starbucks, iPhone, and We Can Ride Out In My VW…

5 12 2007

‘VW fans and Apple fans overlap pretty well (picture a Venn Diagram with Batman on one circle and Bruce Wayne on the other), and will be willing to purchase any type of iCar that will eventually be sloshed forth from the combined loins.’

Sad, but true. I love both my Dub and iPhone (hip yuppie douchebag connotations aside). Read more from Gizmodo.

My Baby Is Sick! The Horror!

6 11 2007

Remember my red Jetta? Well Bianca was in the shop at Lindsay VW for a new radiator hose and was ready for pickup today. So I take Jake (my new GTI) to go get her. I’m on Wilson (by Eden Center—think big Asian strip mall of stupidity), coasting to a red light, when some dumb old Asian woman pulls out of a shopping center to my right and rams into the side of my car.

I saw her out of the corner of my eye and try to swerve away and speed up to avoid her, honking my horn (multi-tasking, what?) to no avail. I don’t manage to avoid impending doom but I was able to minimize the impact and bring it to the rear of my car as opposed to getting t-boned.

Everyone’s alright and we call the cops. She calls some relative to help her translate since she no speaky the English and before they leave I make sure that when it comes time to talking to insurance, they’re ready to admit fault. I’m assured that the lady knows she hit me and that it’s her fault, but we’ll see once their insurance comes calling me.

I call VW Roadside and get my baby towed to Lindsay, just in time to pick up the Jetta from service before they close. In one VW and out another.


I Always Renege On Promises

22 04 2007

I told myself no car projects for a month, but I couldn’t help it. A group buy on window tinting for a bunch of us Dubbers snagged me a great tint job for $150, I couldn’t pass it up. Then I bought yellow Höen fog bulbs, and Euro springs are on their way. Oh well. Car comes first.

Breaking my G2G Cherry

12 04 2007

So I went to my first VW G2G (that’s get together for you n00bs) in Seven Corners last night and it was pretty fun. Met some other cool Dubbers, saw some cool rides, and reinforced my belief that Falls Church cops are the biggest douchebags on Earth. A few photos just got posted by one of the guys who attended (a Hokie no less, but I didn’t stab him). More photos and some video to come as soon as I get word they’re up.
