I found this site while on Samba.

Sorry to hear about Pistol.
I live just across the river from P town in Vantucky
I work in the industrial section of NW Portland.
Im a trick out what ya got kind of guy.
My first intro to the VW scene was back in the 80's with a 79 Rabbit we painted Miata blue with body kit interior etc. Went to a bunch of shows in Portland in the late 80's early 90's.
I got into the Lowriding euro scene and tricked out another car that made Lowrider mag and won a bunch of crap plastic trophys. And for what spend a bunch of money to get plastic trophys. Im so glad I grew up a little and got out of that scene.
I talked my uncle into donating me his beat up manx style buggy.
It was a body a pan front beam and nothing else, not kidding.
I originally wanted to make it a rod style street cruiser, white walls etc with widened wheels. Then the wheel shop in portland closed.
I started looking into the pain in the A$$ it would be to make an untitled car street legal. So I turned it to the sand.
We spend most of our time at the dunes riding in the buggy and our quads.
The paint is only temporary till i get all of the stuff done, I want done.
I would someday like to turn it to street, but that will be after I get a Sandrail or something else to dune.

Been married 5 years and have a 2 year boy that cant keep his hands out of my tools. Oh and his favorite saying is "BIG Ta Ta's" Im so proud of that one.

As far as those fence pics, I dont think the wife would be to pleased about me putting them on the internet. (send me your mailing adresses and I will mail them) no not really!!
I do have some other pics ...ahem of other friends girlfriends and wives.....

I know I will get some $hit for my name.

My catch phrase used to be (to the ladies) "are you Naked??"
Oh and it didnt help that if I drink to much I was the first to suggest some kind of game to get the girls naked. Of course how well do you play when you are lit, which meant umm I didnt ever play to well.

I still try to get the ladies to go topless in the buggy.
My wife just thinks Im a big perv,
yes, yes I am.
