    question for the VW folks

    I know there are some people here who are also VW fans. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what an early '60's Karmann Ghia front bumper is worth.

    Scrambler in a tv commercial?

    I've seen a commercial twice now and like most commercials I can't tell you what they were advertising. There's a bunch of pictures flashing on the screen while John Lennon's "Imagine" plays in the background. Somewhere near the middle there is a flash of what looks like a sand colored...

    OT, racks for a Z71?

    I have an '08 Chevy Z71 w/ extended cab , no racks on top. I'd like to be able to carry my canoe on the roof. It's a Dagger "Encore", 13' open whitewater canoe with a lot of rocker (shaped a lot like a banana). The ladder racks I've seen to fit the bed won't work due to the curve of the boat...

    new use for old junk

    Not sure where to put this. The plastic that held my seatbelts up broke to pieces long ago. So to keep from having to fish around between the seat and the console for the belt I came up with a new support. Through the years I've worn out several shop vacs but I've kept all the attachments...
