I was hoping you'd be reading these posts! I really am jealous, no lie.
The car looks EXTREMELY nice (the five spoke wheels help tremendously, as
well as the nice tint job). My lowly Quantum pales greatly by
comparison. I appologize for the "cheese" comment (I wanted the whole
list to know of my appology, and the quality of this machine). I was
just disappointed that you said you got off the list - I thought you
didn't fully appreciate what folks like me are missing out on. I didn't
know the car was a Turbo - makes me even more jealous. I thought all the
5kcstq's had the word "Turbo" on the trunk lid.
If you'd ever like an extra set of hands to do some of your crazy
maintenance, I've got a nice set of tools.
