How Times Change

A little under 2 years ago, I was driving the murdered Rabbit smacking sub-frame off the ground.  With the expectation of a child to come, I decided it was time to get something a little more practical for when that time actually did come.  The Tiguan was the answer.  The modding was going to be kept to a minimum while still ensuring the vehicle was “unique”.

I have had the Tiguan for almost two years now and have been modding VWs since 1999.

This summer was the first time I felt like I just didn’t care anymore.

The Q7 wheels are still sitting in the same location they were placed when I removed them for the winter last year.

The vehicle has been washed 2 times so far this year.

With everything else that is going on and needs to be done now, the vehicle has been put to the back burner and I am not sure if it will ever be removed from it.

The Q7 wheels are for sale right now if anyone is interested in them.

We were at least able to get up north (Oscoda, MI) a coupe weekends ago for the first time this year.  We had an awesome time being able to get away from the city.  The dogs had fun too!

Here is a photo my Dad snapped as we were going down the dirt road to get to the camp site…

Is this the end of the road?

I can’t say for sure, but I highly doubt it.

I guess we can just call it a “break”.

Got back from the first big trip with the Tiguan last night.  She held up great and performed as expected.

The wife and I made the trip out to Rochester, NY to hang out with some of the WFSU crew for the 4th of July weekend.  The weather was awesome, the food was awesome, the company was awesome!  We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend!

Big thanks to MM5 (website) (flickr) for setting up the bees and taking some proper shots of the Tiguan.
