The Ride Has Arrived!!!

Wow...its been a couple of months since I have seen my ride....The car made it to Houston Texas last week. It was delivered to VWOA receiving port. When I arrived it was surrounded by all the flashy 2009-2010 VW's, Audis, and Porsches...... How Ironic is that???
Unfortunately my tool set that was behind the rear seat was stolen on the way here. My car battery was also swapped for a POS battery that could not be jump started or charged. Once I installed a new battery I was good to go and drove to San Antonio Texas where I spent the night.
The next day I took the ride to the Buggy Warehouse in San Antonio to buy some stuff to help the bug deal with this Texas heat. Once I got that done I began my drive to Abilene. About 47 miles into the drive my front passenger side tire burst. Luckily I was only driving about 60 MPH so I did not loose control. You guessed it there where sparks flying everywhere as my beam was destroyed. Lucklily It was only around 4:30PM so I was able to call several tire shops to see if they had Continental 145/65-15 tires. You guessed it..no one had the tire I needed so I contacted U-Haul to rent a truck and a trailer to get the car home. I finally made it home about 1:30 AM. Boy was it nice to be home!!!! I only took a few pictures which I have posted.
