Dear Al, 
I'm originally from Boulder, now living in Durango.  I've had my 87
4000csq for about 2.5 years now.  what a fun car!  Now, living in Denver,
are you really going to get a bmw, or are you going to get a REAL snowcar.
First time driver?  better be ready for a couple re-allignments after all
those snow-day curb-checks.
