Meet Paul and His VW Rabbit
My name: Paul
Screen name: Mascictbud
Relationship status: Single
The car: 1984 VW Rabbit convertible
What is the thing you like best about your ride?
It's a five-speed convertible with a roll bar.
Do you like to take road trips in your car? Describe your favorite road trip -- where did you go? What did you do?
It's great to drive in the country, down the old two-lane roads. A night drive in the summer is great to clear your thoughts, also.
Do you like tinkering under the hood, or do you leave repairs and routine maintenance to your mechanic?
I can do some basic things on this car; I'm more use to tinkering with classic GM stuff.
What special touches have you added to your car that reflect your personality and individuality?
It now sports HD stereo.
Do you find yourself more attracted to people with car tastes similar to your own? Or doesn’t it matter?
I don't think it matters, as long as there's a mutual interest, and they're not some sort of auto or truck snob. Cars can be a great way to pal around.
If you had an unlimited budget and could change anything you wanted on your car, what modifications or accessories would you add?
More power, more race-oriented, and some working AC. Seat heaters too, for those cool crisp days. Oh, and I might consider a cup holder.
What aspect of your ride most attracted you when you decided to own and drive it?
It's a convertible and a fun five-speed to drive. It's fun to piss off BMWs when you pull away from them.
Have you ever pushed your car to its performance limit? What was the fastest speed?
What was the first car you ever had? Do you ever get nostalgic for it?
1969 Pontiac LeMans (light blue). Hell yes, I'd like to have another. I like old Mustangs and GMC trucks too.
If you could trade your ride in for any other car, what would it be, regardless of the price?
An Audi R8. Well if I could afford the insurance.... A Cadillac XLR would be OK, too you know.
If you share a burning passion for your car like thousands of
other gays, now you have a chance to let the world know. We don't just
want to see your auto obsession, we want to hear all about it!
