    GenerationDUB.com is 11 years old. Today. June 26th.

    Wow, time sure has flown - it really has.

    For those that don't know, the core people on this site used to frequent another place called 20VTurbo.com, as well as an email group that was dubbed, "HardcoreDUBS". We realized that we should have a website of our own and on June 25th, 2001, GenerationIV.com was born. (Generation 4, because the majority of us had Mark 4's).

    GenerationIV evolved in 2003 when new members (Kooz, being a primary person involved), liked the forum, but felt segregated because we only catered to MK4's. GenerationIV was renamed to GenerationDUB.

    We have seen a lot of people come and go from here, and it's been great being a part of everyone's life for this long.

    When I read posts as far back as 2003 (we had lost posts from 2001 because of switching from PHPBB to vBulletin), its interesting to see how far a lot of us have actually "grown up" ( myself included). Sometimes It's embarrassing to see some kind of the things we (or I) used to say when I was only 19 years old (a kid really), knowing little about cars, or for that matter, life.

    This isn't just a car community, but a lot of you guys have shared your life experiences with us, such as having kids, getting married, buying your first house, buying your first car.

    That is not a small feat, even though we are still small, I've tried to keep this place running this long without the help of big sponsors or any donations. I'm pretty sure Bob @ Urban Expressions was one of the first guys that helped pay for this site for a year.

    I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone on here for the last 11 years, and I hope to keep this place running for a long time to come. A lot of inspiration for what I've done with my life stems from this website and the people here. I wouldn't' be in the industry that I am today with out this site.

    I think this makes us one of (if not the) oldest active VW forum, next to VWVortex, on the internet.

    Some images from days long ago that may remind some people of how this place came to be.

    If you have any images anywhere, feel free to contribute.

    Met some good friends here some of which stuck around, others that didn't. I had tons of fun with GTGs, shows, etc... Although lately things have slowed down on GD mostly because people get older, priorities change; I will never forget those times. Thanks!

    P.S. I'm a post whore.

    Its been a crazy 11 years. Like Harry said, we've all grown up so much in that time. Made some great friends from this site

    The best time is still the first WF we all rolled to, which was WF 2003? Anyone still have that video?
