lmao. coming back from Ely one time in my magnum (gahgster wagon) my ex girlfriend was driving. she got a ticket for 79 in a 70, and we were maybe 3 miles away from the 15 (could see it in the distance).

we had to drive out to moapa to pay it. we thought shed actually need to go to court there were just all "here, its a parking ticket"

I got a ticket in beaver UT. I called the hotline to take care of it they had no record, so I had to go out there.

Yep, it was at 52.5 mpg when I got here. That is after hitting the mcdonalds drive thru, ideling for five minutes while I figured out how to reconfigure my phone to the car, then driving from 95/215 to Moapa. The single lane construction zone @ 55 mph probably helped

Thanks to some traffic and a little more aggressive driving I only got 45.2 mpg on the way home. But they did drop it to a parking ticket and dropped the fine down to $95. So the trip was worth it.


So am I the only one the believes that over half of the handicap drivers in the town are only handicap because they cut off or tailgated the wrong person. I just wonder how many people are handicap because they are asshats instead of actually having something go wrong.

They are good. We had a mk4 Jetta with the 1.9tdi in it. Good little engine. Just make sure that you do the timing belt on it. The timing belt runs the cam, injector pump, and water pump. It is normally a good time to change the water pump too while you are in there. Most of the online places sell complete kits for fairly cheap. Esp compared to the cost is one was to break. Other then that as a routine maintenance I have heard of many of them hitting 300k miles without any issues.
