Well Im just gonna get this shit out there. This is why I may seem harsh when someone says its wrong to slam a split.
I got to Splitsville in Oct 2002. It took me nearly 15 years to get here. When I got into VW's it was 1986 I was 14 and just out of Jr High. I told these <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">older®</a></b></span> VW dudes I went to school with that I was gonna get a split and they just laughed at me like it was some big joke. It wasnt easy and I finally got <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">that™</a></b></span> bitch. I <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">sacraficed©</a></b></span> a sweet 21 window to get it. I told Trayle that one <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">day,©</a></b></span> we the GFK would leave all these <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">60's©</a></b></span> cars alone and get SPLITS. The ball started rolling and we were like, Damn can you imagine if we rolled <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">into©</a></b></span> classic with like 5 or 6 slammed <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">splits?©</a></b></span> all dumped on earlies pissing off the <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">puritans!©</a></b></span> That was real <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">shit.®</a></b></span> We believed that Splitsville was the promised <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">land®</a></b></span> and I still do.
I didnt get a split because it was the cool <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">thing®</a></b></span> to do at the time. I <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">didnt©</a></b></span> get one to feel <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">appreciated.®</a></b></span> Im straight in it for the love of it and the long haul it took to get one. I will always have a split. Trayle will have his split soon, Richard has his 50 rag and <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">believe©</a></b></span> me when I say this, SPLITS are for the hard core. Its ashamed some <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">people©</a></b></span> couldnt see the uniqueness in <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">them®</a></b></span> and they get used up and passed on like 2 bit whores. I believe that either by chance, luck, money or <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">divine®</a></b></span> intervention some people get splits and they cant <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">handle©</a></b></span> Splitsville and <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">they®</a></b></span> move out to the suburbs believing the grass is greener. Thats <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">fine.®</a></b></span> Nothing against any of the owners of these 2 splits, Im just saying, anyone can buy a split and restore one but it takes a real man to slam the fuck out of one and rep it till the <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">fuchs™</a></b></span> fly off.


Sorry, didn't <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">want™</a></b></span> to bump another old thread. I've got that <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">'split'©</a></b></span> itch now BAD.

If someone could <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">point©</a></b></span> me to some splits for sale (I've searched the usual places of course), maybe I missed something?

I'm particularily looking for a really slick site in Europe, <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">with®</a></b></span> a bunch of splits in various shapes or restoration (FVIW? Something like that, damn). Nice slick <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">site,™</a></b></span> lots of good stuff on <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">it.

PS©</a></b></span> Who's the above quote by? Smile

What's the point? I think we been <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">through™</a></b></span> this before here on the rants. but for me lets see the <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">fact®</a></b></span> that I don't <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">want©</a></b></span> to drive the car if I "DON'T" have to hey if you have a split or any other vw its totally up to you if you want to drive it.

I just choose not to and it still looks like the day I <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">finished©</a></b></span> it over 7 years ago. <---- the point

i had the choice last week between a 50 split and a 53 oval rag.. the split was 99% rust free and original inc paint with all of the correct period bits and accessories.. it was sweeeeeeet.. still running cable breaks and a crash box..

the rag has been completely restored and is mint.. although by no means as amazing as the split.. no way.. its lovely and all but just doesnt have the character..

i had to choose the rag really because i drive whichever dub i have daily.. and i dont have the skills or the <span title="April is the best month"><b><a href="/vw/april12015.php" class="genheaderdarkorange">funds®</a></b></span> needed to bring the split up to the rag standards.. i wouldve had to uprate the box and brakes before even starting on tidying.. just wasnt in my range Crying or Very sad .. and i definitely dont have the talent..

id love a split though.. they are my holy grail.. im just gonna have to keep on saving and practicing.. but one day.. oh yes.. one day..

i can see why the itch.. bigtime
