Re: [T3] T3 on I10

This reminds me of the first weekend I ever had my type 3 on the road....  I got
it on the road on a thursday ( the first time in over 8 years that it was driven
anywhere.....), the next day I was off the the Great Canadian Bug Show......
over 200 miles away...... so a couple of friends and I caravan to Toronto for
the show, get there without any major incidents, set up for the weekend at a
campsite, so here we are in one of Canada's largest city, first weekend with my
Square on the road, what to do ?  Lets head into the big city :-)  We were
cruising around, saw only a couple of other air cooled cars, head onto Young
Street ( the longest Street in North America ( maybe the world ?)) anyway.....
we are driving down Young Street, nest thing you know a car full of Punks ( you
know orange, green hair, chains.. etc......) comes screaming up beside me, one
of them practically hanging out the passenger window, he is yelling "Awesome
car, what year is it ? I used to have a 70 Squareback..... Cool !!!!!!!"  it was
quite a funny incident.........  that along with getting free window cleanings
fromQ'leegee Kids, just because they like the car..... but that is another
story :-)

BTW...   the car made the whole trip without any problems...   however my
friends 74 Type 2 lost his steering ( we fixed that with hose clamps, duct tape,
steel banding, and pieces of snow fence....)
