Merry Christmas

Christmas is finally here and the year is almost over. During this break from school and work many of us will be traveling to family. Perhaps we will be staying home. We might take some time to catch up on those projects we just haven't had time for. Whatever we are doing I hope we can all remember why we take this time off of work and school each year. This is the time of year where the world takes a special remembrance of the child that was born in Bethlehem, the Savior of the world. Thomas S. Monson said "to catch the real meaning of the spirit of Christmas we need only drop the last syllable it becomes the spirit of Christ." I hope that we can all remember the love and forgiveness that Christ has for each of us, and I hope that we can share that love with those around us. I leave you with this video from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to hopefully bring the spirit of Christmas into our hearts. Merry Christmas!

Winter Wonderland

I survived my finals so I decided to relax and do something fun, so I drew some winters VW's, since I've been feeling Christmasy lately. I liked the red on black paper with the snow background. What do you guys think? Merry Christmas!

Hiding the Rat's Nest


After I got the mat
My latest little feature I added to my car is a trunk mat. I've gotten tired of having an ugly trunk that looks nothing like a trunk. It really looked like a big mess, the rat's nest of wiring and tubes running all over my trunk were an eyesore. And my gas tank was starting to get scratched up from stuff I was putting in my trunk, so I broke down and bought a cheap trunk mat from Walmart. It actually fit really good, I didn't have to cut it down to size much, and it's big enough to cover everything. Now it actually looks like a trunk.

I have actually been surprised at the amount of stuff I can fit in that trunk. It's actually a lot bigger than it looks. I have large coolers in there. If you are creative in packing the bug has plenty of trunk space with it's front and back luggage compartments.  Not quite as much space as a type 3 or a bus, but it holds its own pretty good. These were really well designed little cars (not that I'm biased or anything).

Another VW From School

Well my finals are this week (wish me luck!) and with the semester finishing up I haven't had as much time for posting. I have some stuff to post about over Christmas break, so for now I have pictures of VW's I've seen around my school.

Here is a blue Vanagon I saw at my school. I used to think they were ugly, but they are growing on me the more I get into Volkswagens. Can anybody help me on the year? I don't know as much about them as the other VW's. If I remember right these were introduced in the 1980's and were water cooled (thus the grill on the front) Is that right?

Well, as you can see all the snow from that big storm that I got a little bit ago has gone. A little disappointing  and it's still cold. I figure if I have to deal with cold I might as well have snow. Merry Christmas!
