    Still in the shop getting some mods. It's been WAY late in getting done. It is supposed to be done by the 17th. Mods---air suspension, water/meth, 380 injectors, front splitter, new wheels, new tail lights. Just a few things :) :) :)

    Dayum, Teddy...you didn't have a car the last time we were to pair up for the yearly jaunt to MOTD. I'm starting to feel like I'm a jinx or something!

    Are you SURE you want your spiffy car to be seen with my ratty-looking S?

    I dug the GP out of storage this past weekend. She turned over a little slow but fired right up. Need to get a few things done before leaving for MOTD like swap brake pads, change fluids, and mount new tires. Might also install an RMW head before I leave. Should be rolling into Fontana on Tuesday the 30th. I'll be stopping in for a beer Dave.

    Stop in for a cigar Wed. night. They are free and the last ones I'll be handing out, as this is my last MOTD dance.

    WOOHOO---my car will be ready a week from Thursday. Of course, I had to tell Brian that a life sentence is not really a deterrent to someone my age. :) :)

    I wish I could, but with my health and the quickly aging conditions of my cars, it doesn't look good. Still, that said, never say "never", even though that is a VERY long shot.

    My town did not plow when we had that big storm a few weeks back. Consequently, the ruts were about 8-9" high and my S is lowered. I had to take my dog to the vet so I had to drive in that crap and now my Milltek is making noises similar to a woman in childbirth. I'm PISSED.

    Hey errbody, just a reminder that The MINI Skirts' Skirtapalooza this year is a disco with former NFL player, The Big Joker as DJ. There will be Rocket Girl beer, a photo booth, and a trophy for the best disco outfit. And it's all free for you to enjoy! Let's Boogie!
