I posted this same question on a different VW forum last year hoping someone from the old NCVU club would respond. I never did get a response from anyone. Maybe I will have better luck here.

Well I found another old NCVU member last night, or more like he found me. I was hangin with the Nor Cal Transporter Bus dudes at DQ last night and this guy walks over from the restaurant next door and as soon as he is close enough to see me, he screams out "Hey Rich". It is Mike Suit. Mike had the first chop'd bug in our club. Man we thought our stuff was bad back then. Brian Watts and I ran around with this guy some 20 years ago or so. I was bangin my head last night trying to remember the last time I saw Mike, so my head hurts today. This was a chance meeting, he had no idea I was going to be at DQ last night. Very cool to see an old member of NCVU.

This is our club at a small get together.



This was on the way to the meet.
That is Andy's SB-Louie's 65-Mike's chop-Busters Square and my Bus.

NCVU at the movies. We all went to the 49er Drive In.




Those are my old centerlines on the back of the red Bug.


Thats Mike Suit and his girl leaning on the back of my Bus. Dave Calta with his back to camera in the VW seat. One of the few girls in the club, Denise Pettite facing camera. Thats Keith Kemble aka Big Bird in the green shirt and Brian Fries with his back to camera in the orange club shirt.

Boy I sure miss him to.
He was the guy who took me under his wing.
He got me hooked on VW's
One of my best memories was crusing the mall and some v8 guy tring to get Louie
to race. Louie was on some kind of probation from racing, so he wouldn't race
but he threw me the keys & said I could race this guy.
We went out on Sunrise and I blew the guy away.
That was my first ever street race.
