View Full Version : Moncha turns 10!

10/04/2010, 07:14 PM
I hate the fact that work got in the way of an important celebration.

Ten years ago Laura and I traded in our '99 Astral VX for our beloved 2000 Proton VX (Moncha). I loved it when the sales guys reminded me, "You gotta wake up to that color every morning, you sure you want it?"

The obsession was on a roll when I met up with Tone in Colorado Springs for an Impromptu meet in my Astral, but it launched into space with the Proton!

At 38K miles its been a lot fun traveling through Moab, the Pacific Northwest as well as the trails on the mountains of Colorado.

I'm looking forward to several more decades of fun.

Sounds like us ol' generals need to celebrate.....[shhhhhhhhhhh]

WOW, congratulations!

... even though it sorta makes me feel sorry for myself because I haven't had a VX for the last 10 years! :)

Congrats Moncha. What can I say that will top 10 dancin' nanners?

38k? Time to drive that proton, gas aint that pricey yet. Do you have the initial rubber on it?

Wow! I feel like such a noob. Ten years waking up to that light Kaiser color.....priceless. (remember I'm color blind). Congrats Boss.

Congrats, Scott. All the old guard is now over ten years or close to it. It seems like just yesterday.
We're now on our way to twenty years! :yesy:

WOOT! Happy anniversary! I'm glad work was the reason why you missed out on the celebration...

10/05/2010, 07:53 AM
Gratz! Very cool. Next month would have been year 10 for me had my Dragon lived. I believe she gave her life to save me with barely 3k milles on her. :(

Grats Scott, that's awesome!

Only 7.5 years till I catch up!

+1, like Anita said at the rate I'm going I'll be at 200K by then.

Congrats on the milestone, I can only hope I get there some day! :yesy:

gratz Scott. What's your fav VX story? You must have written a few over the years.

10/05/2010, 08:44 AM
That's awesome Scott.:dance:

Moncha was the first VX that I ever saw in person and I've been hooked ever since. Here's to many more years to come...:_beer:

Thanks for all you do.
And Anita too.

From one Protoner (and Scott) to another, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY SCOTT!!

In another years I'll be celebrating 10 years, but mine will have close to 138,000 miles. If I drove as little then as I do now, it would be closer to 20,000. :sighy2: But, that's over 100,000 miles of FUN I would have missed out on. Plus, I love the look on peoples faces when I say mine has 125,000+ miles and still looks (and runs) like new!
