Maxwaver,<p>You are not alone. I live in Reynoldsburg and my brother, also an "R" owner, lives in Pickerington too. Rs out here are few and far between. Naturally I see others when my car is in for service.<p>George

Maxwaver,<p>My brother and I have 05 Black Sapphire cars with no body kit. We haven't attended any meetings. We're just plain busy these days and don't get to have fun like we want.<p>George

Ghodge that's awesome!<p>Do one of you by chance live near Turnberry Golf Course? When I go play I sometimes see a black sapphire R.. however not with the pegasus wheels. I have also seen, probably yours, an R in the Sam's Club parking lot in Taylor Square! I took pictures :-D. It was about two months before I purchased my car, and the car in the lot was my wallpaper on my computer for those two months xD!<p>-Max

Hey Maxwaver,<p>My brother used to live by that golf course about a year ago but has since moved. He took his 18" pegs off and replaced them with some 17" Ronals.<p>Could you send me a copy of the picture that you used for wallpaper and I can tell you if it was me. Could be a very small world. My email is:<p>george dot hodge at gmail.com<p>Thanks,<p>George

I am a die-hard Volvo owner, although I prefer the older models. Wouldn't mind getting some coffee or a beer sometime...

Ghodge - The pictures are on my laptop that I'm rarely on. Next time i get on it, I'll try to remember to send you those pics!! <p>Ortgeard - Nice to see another enthusiast from central Ohio. We should try to stay active on this thread to bullcrap and whatnot. <p>..any of you guys ever catch the Blue Jackets' games? I play hockey as well as follow the NHL (the teams worth watching, anyway).

Sure, the Jackets are great. I don't have season tickets but would go with you guys. I also have a friend in Dublin with a S60R silver. He's kind of a freak about it!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
