    Well, since there's a 'Bassists who drive a Volvo club', I figured the old Volkswagon needed a bit of love :cool:

    So yeah, i guess I'm number 1 in the club
    Currently driving a 2.5L 2009 black Jetta

    post here if you drive a VW! :hyper:

    Brand new Jetta TDI deisel wagon (love that extra space!)
  11. I've driven many VW's through the years. A '70 Beetle, '71 Karmann Ghia, and most recently a '62 Panel Bus. The bus would hold my gear and a three-way PA. Sadly, I had to retire the bus and now haul my gear in a Dodge Ram 1500.

    Wow, this is quite the coinky-dink. I just inherited an '08 Jetta just like yours, Raccio, and I'm totally McLovin' it. I had a couple of GTI's back in the 90's and my DNA has been infected with VW mojo ever since.

    My Corolla died on me on the way to a gig several weeks back (still made the show, though) and I got the new wheels the day of my most recent gig. Well the fold-down rear seat actually folds down so that I can more easily stow my stuff and I even hauled most of our PA gear home with the passenger seat still empty.

    Don't know if it's because my grandmother was from Germany or something, but MAN I dig these cars.

    Always a good choice. Welcome to the club as #5, rollcall.
    Care to share the colour? I promise I won't punch :D

    That they are! Welcome to the club Zolbol - #6

    Never actually driven one, however space is certainly essential for the gigging bassist.

    gotta love the old mini-bus! I've always wanted one with some trippy paint job and shag carpet interior :cool:
    busmandan in at a cool #8

    Not gonna lie, there's nothing like the VW mojo :D
    Glad to see someone else rocking the jetta! :bassist:
    and yeah, i never did like the Japanese car thing. Maybe it's cause they're shady ninjas :ninja:, or maybe because it's gotten to the point where you'd expect them to come in a giant cardboard box and shrink wrap :rolleyes:
    Welcome, grove pump - #9

    hmmm... I guess we can count that; it's still got the VW spirit! :smug:
    Emibass in at #10
