RE: Keeping 'em on the road (was RE: [T3] ethanol)

I must admit... RUSS giving a good account on his Kia with his mechanical
prowess means A LOT more than some little old lady down the road that thinks
it rides "just fine"

But I must say... maybe MY VW is only 35 but it did 7000 miles to the west
coast and back nearly 4 years ago and I only had to adjust the points on it!
My Square is my long trip car and it has done this very well, albeit not
with a 58 bus behind it ;-)


If you saw where I live in the winter, you would know why we drive an
SUV and a 4x4 in the winter. With the SUV I am supposed to not have to
pull the wife out of ditches and snow drifts.
Besides, What am I supposed to use to tow the dead VW's long distances
home with. I am using the KIA this summer to tow a '58 T-2 and many
parts back from Washington.
A 40 year old VW would not have made the trip like I made this last
weekend. Over 1650 miles in one weekend. Plus I brought home a T-3 long
block, an early T-3 rear bumper, and a full set of early heater boxes.
Plus many other parts.
