Default December 2002

I was just wondering how many of us from the STF days are still here. I think most of us have a December 2002 join date.

I'm still here but haven't been very active the last few years.

I go back to the R.A.M.V.A. days... anyone here remember that stuff? That was around before and stuck around for a long time until all the web services dropped News servers... I liked their format. Took me a long time to get accustomed to forums. I didn't become a STF member til a few years ago, and about the same time I signed up here.

Newsgroups.... Them was the days...

I'm here pretty much every day a few times. I do still follow a couple of threads on STF. Hang out a tiny bit on Samba.

Its funny how the STF was so busy and the place to be. Then the cal look forums. Then ultimate aircooled. Some sections of the samba are very active. I still check out STF when I'm bored. Still lots of custom efi, turbo and engine swaps on there. Sites like Instagram and FB have put a hurt'n on all the once fun hang out forums.
There was a bunch on here that came from the north east performance forums.

I used to live at dune-buggy.com until it basically fizzled and the owner basically left. Now I'm here, the samba, reddit and mantacars.com

I didn't get back into aircooled till right around then but was into my buggy. I think I actually met Crack at the BigM show around that time. I hung out with all the BugNaked guys for a few years and stumbled over here.

Just rolling back in after many missing years. Have a new driver coming up in the household and an old baja waiting to be driven, so back into the VWs. A volksrod may not be too far away. Naked girl, Fence

I am a young one here - compared to all you old fuckers! I still check in - too much going on right now for anything else. I still go to STF - Samba only once in a very great while. This is still home though.

I didn't join till 2003 but I lurked around for quite a while before I did. It was a google search that brought up Nick's car that brought me here. Took a few years off when life got too busy but I'm back now. Hopefully with a little more balance in life this time.

I'm glad to see you back :)

I still brag to the other old timers that I got what I believe to be one of your last extensions.. it's a 10" that I bought in the summer of 2007..
