Hi Everett, I see another volunteer for the samba scouts - those people willing to check out local vws for faraway sambanistas who need an honest opinion of the prospective new moneypit. How about a specific page on the site for a semi-permanent list of scouts and locations, sort of like the airs section of type2.com?
Thanks, Jeremy

You could put me down on such a list for the NY-NJ metro area. It would also be good for TheSamba to do a standard checklist that scouts would check, given, of course, the limitations that it would have to be without benefit of test equipment or tools. Digital photos would be a plus. All, of course, purely voluntary and without any negative implications for the scout if the car turns out to be a POS.

The bugshop.com (I think that's it) had a real good check list. So does John Muir's book, although it gets a little weird what with you supposed to absorb the car's karma and stuff...

I would like to volunteer to be the Scout for the Metropolitan Nashville Area. Tennessee of course and any outlying areas... Not many go up for sale around here and/or make it to thesamba.com but if they do I would be glad to do it..

Oh, yeah, well, duh, I have to give my e-mail address if I want to be a scout, right? Jeez. OK, it's [email protected]. I'll read it 9-5 Eastern time weekdays. I can check out stuff in NJ and NYC.

Just want everyone to know that I can cover the greater Salt Lake area (Provo to Ogden), maybe more. Will take digital pics so you know what the hell you're getting into. Send email to address above. And don't worry, I vow not to scoop any sambanista on a purchase. just give an honest assessment.
