Dearest Techtonics Tuning,

For years I have happily used your exhaust systems on my VW’s. The awesome build quality and throaty note it gave my engine was unmatched and when paired with the economical cost, it was the best game in town! I am writing to you today with a business proposition of sorts. My wife, Kate, is a newly turned VW-driver. We are the couple who were faux-married by Elliott from PVW at H20 a few years back if that rings a bell (it’s on youtube I think).

Anyhoo, Kate is attempting to build up her Cabrio and has made me promise that I don’t spend any of my money on it. She’s kind of hard-headed that way but want’s to build her own car by herself and I can respect that. I was wondering if she could possibly obtain a mini-sponsorship from you guys for an exhaust system for her MK3. In return, I would be happy to whore the living crap out of your awesome product on our build blog ( http://www.kratemotors.com ) as well as make a nice video entry of the system, highlighting the ease of installation, build quality etc etc. We get a good amount of traffic to the blog every day and have several thousand loyal followers so far, so the advertising opportunity could be pretty awesome. Plus, Kate is pretty cute and can easily sell ice-cubes to eskimos if she dials up the charm.

Anything would help here and I feel weird writing a letter for her but I thought it would be a nice surprise if something actually worked out. She has coils, wheels and a few other goodies coming, along with all of the labor I have planned on dressing up the car, I think it’s going to be a great project when finished. All she needs are a few odds and ends, one being an exhaust system.

So, thats my pitch. Sorry for the novel and hopefully my begging and witty writing has struck a nerve in your generous hearts.

Sincerely yours,
Jason Kress

Craige O and Sara!!

March 9th, 2009 § 0 comments § permalink

Craig O and Sara were wonderful enough to drive out of their way to see us on their way up from picking up the nicest (and in the best shape) Scirocco I’ve ever seen from Daytona, Fl back to their home in Vermont. We were hoping and anticipating that they’d stay the night but alas, it is supposed to snow in Vermont tomorrow and they opted to drive on to Jersey and hopefully beat the storm. They stayed long enough to catch up a bit, grab some food, and then pop over to VW headquarters. Now we owe them a trip up to Vermont. We’ll fly though (;
