Sunday, August 22nd, 1999

Well, the year is more than half over, and no updates from me! Bad me! Lots has happened though…

My bumper was fixed in early March… in May someone backed into me and scuffed the left corner of the bumper and car, unfortunately. It’s not too noticable… except to me, of course. *sigh* Guess I just have bad luck with bumpers!

In June I moved from Pennsylvania to Virginia — home of 1552 Design/VW Sport! Needless to say, my car has visited them a few times since June. A new suspension came first, then a p-chip, new tires this week. My car is enjoying all of the attention, naturally. So am I. *wink*

I also bought some VW accessories for my car — the windstop and the front end cover. I’ve not put the cover on yet, but I’ve found the windstop to make the top-down driving experience so much more pleasant. It’s especially effective at speeds over 60 mph… which for me, of course, is slow…

I’m already close to the 42,000 mile mark, so it’s quite possible that my car will travel 15,000 miles in a year’s time. There have been numerous trips between PA and VA, of course, plus another journey to Canada. Always fun.

Now that I’ve just found a new job, I suppose I won’t be working for Volkswagen any time soon, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t! Volkswagen of America has finally created an online job posting area, so check it out!

DriversFest’99 is next weekend! Will you be there? I hope so! Tons of fun for all. I can’t wait!
