… and Hello and Welcome and ALL HAIL the Green Turd!!!
No, no, this abomination is just a loaner for the next couple days until we get our nice and only original BlueTurdy back.
Anyway, I’m not really looking forward to cruising with that pos thru our nice suburb. It’s no fun since the gear shifter is more or less fucked, so getting it in 2nd gear is kinda heavy operation. Oh, and the reverse doesn’t work too well neither.
The noise it makes while driving is almost unbearable, everything rattles and squeeches and creeks and makes bump. It’s terrible! But right now I’m in love with that old banger. It’s the best car in the world, since we have it on our disposal and can go with it to the beach or downtown or to the mall or wherever we wanna go. And let me tell you, that feels great in a town without a real public transport system. Particularly when one of the passengers is wheelchair bound. So yes, the Green Turd is a lifesaver! Hey, if you’re in the market for an old banged up VW Microbus – which is weirdly enough outfitted with fancy mag wheels and a tuned up 1800 cc VW Golf engine – feel free to contact our trusty mechanic. He’s got 3 of those neon green monsters standing around and needs to get rid of ’em.
[…] Bye Bye Blue Turdy […]
I remember hearing front end damage can take the gas pedal linkage and shove it up through the drivers seat and in to your sit down bits…..
Be Careful! 🙂
No worries my dear, I have driven more miles on Volkswagen busses than any other car, don’t forget my colourful past as beach bum, surfer girl and yacht crew. Anyhoo, be that as it may, the T2 bus won’t impale you thru the anus but ram the steering column square into your tits. I once had a small Fiat 900E panel van, and oh my, that thing was a rolling death trap. But I drove it vewwy vewwy cawefuly. These little luxuries are system imminent in vans with rear engine. 😉
OTOH you know how slow these things are? Particularly loaded down with 10 drunken sailors, surfboards on the roof, baggage, tents, food and drinks for 3 weeks? 40 mph maybe. On a long straight stretch of German Autobahn, not anywhere else. In so far the number of really life-threatening crash scenarios is comfortably low.
