Ballin' On A Budget...



the title of a Nappy Roots jam which has been on repeat all day. Usually I am writing about something cycling related but today I am going to give you a peek into my "other" passion, vintage volkswagens. I am talking about original paint, aged to perfection, metal dashboards, let me feel the road kind of rides (Not to be confused with the stereo-typed hippie van).

Check out the inspiration from Kustom Coach Werks... someday when all this mountain biking pays off, my 62 (below) will be rolling into the KCW shop for some lovin'. Check out this video... you will "feel" what I am talking about.

Nick -

Whatever you do, don't lose the custom patio deck/observation platform/porch already attached to the top. That's "sunburn central" up there, and it's got to be a great place to watch a race from.

The Pickup is sweet, but Stock is Rock!

After we paid for our kids outdoor summer camp we found it tough to recover! I totally agree with you!

It does my heart good to see you've still got ole Missy! I will never forget the day you met "her" in Aspen and had to have her! You were soooo excited! Me too! Old antiques from 1962 aren't so bad after all, hey?

Great work on your blog - it was very enlightening. You've got a lot of useful info on there about sports nutrition so I've bookmarked your site so I don't lose it. I'm doing a lot of research on sports nutrition exposed and have just started a new blog - I'd really appreciate your comments
