Motivation would be enough for me too. I have a '60 bug to finish and metal on a '66 bus.

There are more shirts left over. But I really think it should be more of a annual event if John wanted to host another.
To participate in a KCW event should involve KCW work ethics.
Overall the productivity was more of what you would expect from a leisure build thread. And some brief poor sportmanship made a little unreasonable forum tension. imo.

The original idea was to get everyone out working on their stuff. I thought it did a pretty good job at that. Personally I do have KCW work ethics at my full time job and family life. Thats the reason it helps to get a little kick in the ass through the forum after work.

Maybe now that John has slowed down a bit in his old age I can keep up for more than a month or two. :^o [-( [-(

I think it motivated people. I realize that it didn't pan out as JJ expected and that's unfortunate, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. It did add a little excitement to things, but it sort-of detracted as well.

For some, VW's is a business. For the majority of us though, this is a hobby. A place to relax and enjoy a mutual interest while learning and sharing. I've learned a great deal from others builds, and I'd be happy to know that some have learned from mine. Having a big prize or $$ at the end of the tunnel may motivate people, but it inevitably brings out poor sportsmanship. The most important aspect to my hobbies is FUN. Once things start turning into business, it detracts from it a bit. The concept of the "monthly buildoff" can be as simple or as complex as the readership desires. Personally, a t-shirt is more than I could ever expect, or ask for. If I get to enjoy sharing my hobby with like minded people I've already won. Let's keep it super simple, super basic and let's work on motivating each other to get our heaps on the road! Smile

Why buy when you can build?
I've spent hours on parts that you can buy for pennies.

Well said Alex, this site is my motivation, I come on here everyday to see what everyone is up to. To see their progress even if I haven't touched mine in a few years. If it wasn't for this site I might not even own my vw. keep up the great work. I will be here. Maybe even try to join in on a month or two. Not for the cash just for the fun, and positive feedback from the forum members unlike some other sites,

Great work KCW. I vote to start the monthly build off again,

I looked back through the forums and I didnt see the posts Im referring to.
Either i looked in the wrong place or JJ/franz took care of it.

They were basicly saying the ones that made the most progress couldnt have held day jobs.
And a few were casing on fidysea pretty hard. Either way It was taken for a grain of salt then, And should be now as well.

Hah, I thought you where going to say it was when I posted the reflection of my balls on the side of my bus. :-#. That might have caused some unreasonable tension.
