Re: Volkswagen Enthusiast Program(VW 1)311


<x-charset iso-8859-1>This is so funny.
I am a little worried about my domain name now -
CEBEETLEBUSBUGNOTCHSPLITOVAL.COM
maybe they thought i meant VWBEETLEBUSBUGNOTCHSPLITOVAL.COM, what are the
chances of that?
there is simply no connection.
and theres me thinking I have subscribed to the
VerandaWarehouseTomYorkePersonalEvent3.ORG mailing list.
o well.......
