V-Dub Killing

I have done a lot of racing around the town I live in and I'm always looking for another race. I enjoy most taking down Import cars. I have a very deep hatred of non-American cars. i just don't think they can make any power no matter what. I have run a lot of cars in my 4.0 mustangs. I have won a lot and lost a lot and the most wins i ever had were against imports, specifically Volkswagons.

I have some respect for them because I know that they have been in this contry for a long long time and hot rodders have been hoping them up for a long time as well. But there were several instances where a VW owner thought FWD was the best thing ever. and every single time the out come was the same. Front wheel drive just doesn't hook. But, I'm getting ahead of myself. I have beaten a few 2.0s and some TDI models, but a friend of mine and a VW lover just bought a 1.8T 5 speed Jetta and i am itching to get a shot at him, along with all the import guys he knows. I can remember a couple times taking VWs to the cleaners. It always brings me joy beating Import cars

I was called lazy once... I almost responded...

VW in general are not quick cars. In the simplest form, they are commuter cars that feel fast because of their low boost turbochargers. That in mind you can make one considerably faster by adding a chip for not much money. My dad had a TDI which had a fun band of torque, but it's drawback was that it weighed too much. He traded it for a GTI which is considerably more fun; especially through the twisties, but in a straight line won't hold with a mustang GT (comparably priced). If you're looking for a good race with a VW owner, search out a golf R, you'll have some fun.

Beating VW's is like killing baby seals. First few whacks is interesting, but then it just gets monotonous.

"Back in the day" I had a '64 Ford Fairlane. 260 V8 2 barrel, with a 2 speed automatic transmission. It was a 2 door, too! Loved that car; it was my first. But man, was she slow.

About 1986, I wound up at a stoplight with some guy in a VW diesel rabbit! I thought, "At last, here is my chance." I neutral revved, and dropped into gear at full throttle with my column shifter, for maximum lurch! (no tire smoke in this grand old girl, even doing that)

... never saw anything but his taillights. It was a sad, sad day for the poor Swearlane. Yep. Lost to a VW rabbit with a DIESEL.

That cool old car bit the dust thanks to some jerk in a '70 Caprice Classic who smashed up her back end during a blizzard, and shoved the bumper up to her rear seat or so. But the 302 and 3 speed C4 that dad and I built to put in her lived on, in a '67 Mercury Cougar that I bought a week later. I love me some Cougars...
