Fw: Quattros, Hakkas & Toros rule in Denver

Glorious quattro day in CO. Nice heavy wet snow coming down all day. Armed
with 4000 csq, locked center diff, studded Gislaveds, Euro lights, PIAA 90
Pro, and a chewed up w/s wiper, I easily made the drive from Denver to
Boulder. I also hit  a few empty parking lots on the way home from work. I
loved this car when I lived in CA and now I LOVE this car in CO.

Next stop, Winter Park.
