My buddies and I have a standing bit about the Sunday morning Church of Vdub...  Admittedly this is due to the fact that old Vdubs always nneed attention...

 

Count me in for the service as long as it involves a safe E85 approximation at Communion.

...pretty sure the IRS would not be supportive of the existence of a church whose primary stated reason for existence is tax evasion...

Yep.  Also, you don't need to state that it's reason for existence is tax exemption.

Agreed. 
 

But Stampie came painfully close in his first post. 
 

You and I are saying the same thing.  

Gonna have to learn how to package and present it better...

I've been here too long.  I had to read this twice trying to figure out why "independent rear suspension" would care about my tax status.

There's a Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster( may his noodly appendage touch us all R'amen) so I can't see why a car based religion can't exist too

You need hats. Then you can wear them in your driver's license photo. But they should not be required.

In the beginning, there was Rod, and the Ford was with Rod. And Ford said to Rod, "let us build an assembly line." And Rod became fruitful and filled the earth with part numbers.

I was waiting for the part where Rod gets thrown, creating a window into the sacred chambers of combustion....

The great ruination came after Rod failed to bathe in the Sacred oil. Only then was there a great knocking which caused Rod to be cast out.

And lo, the Driver did search and search for a new car for his fleet.  For though his garage was full and his wife was angry his fleet was not yet complete.  Great would be the workload of the Driver.

Yea, we did this like 10 or so years ago?   I bet it is lost to the forum changover etc.  My shirt as reverend of the faith was lost due to stainedness and such.

Stampie, does this mean there will be a pilgrimage of all the followers to your house of worship every year on more or less the same date? Would that line up with the Challenge?
