Just wanted to post some pics of a GTG with other students and Roanoke locals that do a Sunday Drive every Sunday meeting at Tanglewood Mall. I just found out about this and I am a month from graduating, which is very sad!<p>If anyone lives near Roanoke and wants to drive with us send me PM. We normally take out of Roanoke and hit the roads of the parkway and some other local known twisties! <p>The R did a great job in the turns but as you can see by the other cars it was hard to keep up in a straight line.<p><IMG SRC="http://hdfotography.smugmug.com/photos/507105553_k59pi-L.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br><IMG SRC="http://hdfotography.smugmug.com/photos/507106394_TERdP-L.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>None of these cars were stock, and Yes that is a Porsche Turbo that recently received GT2 turbo upgrade! Fastest car I have ever seen! His mom does drive an S60R with mods! <p>Cheers!

Not even joking, I would actually expect a VR to get a good bit of attention from the other owners there, I'm sure those guys respect the uncommon <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

The guy with the porsche said he thought the wagon was a cool twist from his moms S60R. One other guy thought it was sweet too. I always get good comments on the VR. Most of the time it's making fun of the child booster seats but then I take them for a ride or leave them at a light and they quit talking!

This was an awesome loop if you can stomach a tight one lane road. We were able to keep good speed on it. Great overlook of Roanoke.
