  1. Isn't it Power service that has the winter formula in the white bottle while the "normal" formula is in the gray/silver bottle?

    Winter weather

    We had 3/4" snow Friday night that was gone pretty quickly. Went and bought some honey and beeswax just a few miles away and they had over 4" on the ground. Been pouring in Vancouver all night as well and supposed to keep going all day. Checked the weather station at my house near Ben's and it has had almost 4" of rain in the past 24 hours.
  3. They might be able to teach you a thing or two as well. Many years ago, Shawn and I shot at an M1 Garand match (all targets at 200yds) in Longview (they had loaner rifles since neither of us own any firearms). Some of those old guys that probably used their rifles in war out shot the entire group. If I recall correctly, the high score was something like 187/200 by a guy that looked like he might have been a WWII vet.

    5X100 wheels and new tires

    Ivan is drooling over the tires but he wants to get away from the 17" wheels (which he already has).

    Using antifreeze?

    My first gen leaked there. HG fixed it as well.
  6. I come up with a blank page at that link... but then again, I don't do the FB thing so maybe because I dont' have an account?

    Wild Ride

    Unfortunately, it happens all to often on Hwy 30. It seems like you hear of head-ons weekly where someone was killed.
  8. Doubtful. I don't know that the parent's motor home will be up here to get stuck in your field. Seriously, that is the day before Ivan's birthday and we will likely be moving him off to college right about then. He's accepted in the Aerospace Engineering program at Embry-Riddle in Daytona Beach. As a freshman, he has to show up 2 full week early for orientation but if he get's a NROTC scholarship, I think he has to show up at least a week before that.

    You are right! He always capitalizes it. He knows someone named Guy! [emoji4] That must be the name of the person that keeps hiding things from him. [emoji1] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Parts Internet Links

    Nice thing is Cascade German is in Gresham so can go by and pick up parts and pay no tithes to the government.

    Cascade German can also get you any OEM parts you may need. The one OEM part I have bought from them was less than from VW.

    Cascade German is definitely a go to place, and yes, they used to be Bora! They are a really nice group of guys. Stopped in there within a week after Ivan getting his Golf TDI to pick up a skid plate and a new oil pan... He drove it over the ramps and down onto a chock he had sitting between the ramps. DOH! idparts.com also appears to be a good place. No experience there but I think others on here have.
