Hello,I am a VW enthusiast who currently resides in Southern Oregon and am a member of my home club;SOVW. I have recently learned that I will be traveling for work up in your area and thought I would give a shout-out. I got back into VW`s last year after about a 20 year stint and haven't looked back! I currently drive and work on a`56 Oval and a`64 Singlecab. I'm not quite sure right now if I will be actually pulling up stakes to move or be traveling all over western Montana and northern Idaho for work. Anyhow,if there is an opportunity to hook-up with you guys,I definately will! Peace,Thomas; aka "Sizzlean"

UPDATE...Looks like I will be a new resident of Spokane in the near future. Ill be looking for a rental of sorts, and as I am not familiar with the town, perhaps I could get a list of communities to steer clear of (crime rate and all). Ill be looking for a minimum 2 car garage, or ideally a shop, to store and wrench on my VW's. I appreciate any light you guys/gals might be able to shed. Lookin forward to meeting other enthusiasts once I get up there. Thanks in advance.

"communities to steer clear of" = Spokane! Seriously though, welcome and there are nice areas all over Spokane. I find this place a bit confusing because I have never been anywhere with so much overlap of crappy neighborhoods/houses with better neighborhoods/houses. That being said, northern areas like 5 mile, 7 mile, parts of the south hill and the valley all have reasonable areas. I bet other can chime in and give better then that, but it's a start when you start looking.

I have no advice about Spokane, but if you find yourself in Sandpoint during your travels, feel free to look me up. Always happy to talk VW's.

We lived in Medford, Oregon about 11 years ago, nice area, was too expensive for us.

I daily drive a '64 Single Cab, will be good to see another in town.

I sincerely appreciate the info and warm welcome from you guys! Looking forward to this next chapter in my life. Although I never thought I would live this far north, there seems to be a comfort in the idea that ill be meeting some pretty cool enthusiasts up there. The fact that ill be back to work after almost 2 years of layoff, doesn't hurt either! My folks live out in Reardon, and ill most likely be staying there, while I scout my new home. Obviously being 40 years of age,I won't want to stay with the folks too long! Very Happy I was going to sell the singlecab before I relocated but wisdom got the best of me! Longroof...what's the DOM on yours? Mine is 12/9/63.

Good thing about us here in Spokane, we are all spread out like me shooting at a target, scattered. There's a couple on the north side, south side and the valley folks. So where ever you end up there will be cars and beers not far oft.

Our '64 truck is Sept '63 if I remember (missing Mcode plate), ice pick handles, 1500 left air cleaner mount, Turkis original paint.
