Yeah, I got a drag racer single cab, you know, the one with a huge engine in the bed and wheelie bars.

I got a helicopter but it's not VW. However, after I crashed it for the 100th time the rotor blades are bent into a "V" and the boom is a "W".

I picked up some Johnny Lighting's limited edition VWs. Package says 1 of 4000. I got a taxi beetle, a single cab, a deluxe, a Ghia, a concept bus, and new beetle.

That is a great set. I have a few of those Johnny Lightning Single Cabs. They're very good quality but have the big back window and engine vents above the wheel wells, a la '66-'67 SCs. The picture on the card that came with my toy '65 SC is correct but the toy itself isn't quite the same.

That's awesome, hehe.

I like it. Won't open it, but it will look great up at the shop I am working at now, hehe.

I actually got a job at Franklin's VW Werks, I am speechless, even if I am just the guy answering phones, I don't mind.

As long as there is room to "grow", you may end up owning it some day! :D

Not exactly dream job but they do make about the best narrowed beams you can buy for buses and bugs, as well as disc brake kits and all that jazz. So, pretty much, I get to get the SC hooked up for a lot less than I would have payed.
