I'm horrible at introductions, but I'll give it a go. My name is Tory and I've been a car guy, more specifically, a Volkswagen guy all my life. I currently reside in the U.S. in the great state of Pennsylvania, just near Pittsburgh. I'll be 40 in a matter of months and I've owned what I would consider a broad spectrum of cars easily numbering in the triple digits. As I type this, there is a 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo parked alongside a Panhard Dyna Z in my garage, so regardless of your automotive allegiance, I tend to gravitate towards cars that appeal to many people on a broad level. Currently in my VW fleet are a 1952 VW Beetle (split window), a 1955 VW Beetle (oval window) and a 1992 Mexico City taxi that I rescued last year after the govt mandated that the entire fleet be crushed. (That's an entire story in itself that will be posted in the near future.) If you're into the instagram thing, you can get a feel for my car adventures at my handle which is vdubber4life.
Ive got lots of fun stuff in store for this Tribe! Things like product reviews, tours of some of the amazing private VW/Porsche collections here in the U.S., and coverage on both local and national VW events I'm able to attend. I'd love to hear your ideas for things you'd like to see here, and the direction you'd like this tribe to go! After all what good is a leader of a tribe of only one. So lets get on it, spread the word, and grow the tribe! I plan on doing a weekly segment highlighting good deals on cars on the market on eBay and www.thesamba.com, market trends in the hobby, etc. All of that being said, I really look forward to interacting with fellow car folks here on a daily basis and eagerly await the future of what this platform will become!
