I know I've met quite a few of the Addicts recently but I guess I should have thrown this up from day 1. To refresh everyone's memory, I'm the one with the pink 68 bug.

My name is Russ, I'm 28, and I live in Grayson. My street address is actually Lawrenceville, but I have to drive through downtown Grayson to get to downtown Lawrenceville so I tell everyone I live in Grayson.

Prior to getting this bug I ate, drank, and lived Toyota. I was a tech at Toyota Mall of GA for 3 years, moved into parts for 2 years, and I have been doing all the I.T. work for the last year & 1/2.

Here is my other toy:

It's a 1985 Corolla GTS. I added the supercharger, engine management, and modified everything myself.

I actually just ripped all the SC stuff out and am in the middle of re-wiring the engine harness and building a turbo system for it.

I've also been on a big mountain bike and BMX kick recently with my local buddies.

I'll be posting this up in the events section soon but I'm planning a week-long makeover for the pink bug. My wife and daughter are headed to the beach for a few days after July 4th. So every evening from Sunday July 5th through Thursday July 9th will be Monster Garage style nights for me. I will have music going, maybe a movie, and a hot grill all night long. I want my wife to come back and say "Where did the old one go???". From this:

To this, but for now without the rack:

BTW a very cool online program, used to make the above pic, click: Bugselecta

Everyone is welcome to drop by and check out my progress. I will probably plan to be on TheSamba's chatroom while I'm working. I don't know how late I will be able to stay up but I'd say if you stop by before midnight any night I will still be in the garage. Gimme a call if it's late or in general to make sure I didn't make a Walmart or QT coffee run.

Well now I didn't know there was the Georgia Dubs chat. I looked up at the top of the screen and didn't see it. Then again I didn't look that hard either.

Got a link?

Awesome... I will be on Georgia Dubs chat in this case. Some of TheSamba folks remind me of club4ag.com, not necessarily a good thing.

How familiar are you with the Gwinnett Place Mall area? If you're going North on 85 and get off on Pleasant hill, you would make a right. Take the first left on Breckenridge. Just before you come to Old Norcross there will be a "U" shaped road on your right. Those jumps are back behind that office park. You can also get to them from a gravel road off Sweetwater Rd.

We just built a 16 foot long double sided grind box at my buddy's house in Lilburn, around Five Forks & Ronald Regan. We hit up the concrete skateparks that are popping up in the area too. Let me know if you're down to ride or chill sometime.

You seem to be a fast learner, and there's a lot to learn about what makes an old Bug different than a Toyota or Chevy
