As I was writing about my clutch upgrade, I realized that the car was almost one year old. I put my name on this car on Veteran’s Day 2016 and drove it home the following day. So it became one year old over the past weekend. Don’t confuse sentiment with fact by noting that the car was manufactured in July 2016. Oops! I just did that! 😉 I’ll stick with Veteran’s Day as the anniversary since it’s easy to remember. I’ll also stick to my apparent 10,000-mile interval for reporting progress or problems. So this will just be a brief “birthday entry.” However, I will report that the odometer rolled past 34,000 miles on the car’s birthday.
It’s easy to think that my decision to buy a cupcake and pose it with a candle on a VW hubcap may border on freakish. First, I like cupcakes. Second, a true VW freak would have lit the candle! Okay, I didn’t light it because I was too lazy to find a lighter. HAHA! 😉
