Oooooh. The pain that goes with the pride! Congrats on your Graduates
and entering freshman. Also, I feel for you. Owww.

I went to check out a V8Q 3.6 5sp with fellow lister Taka for one of
his friend's once. As I recall (gawd, memory does seem to get fuzzy)
it was black/black. Car was pretty sweet (didn't drive it, Taka did) really
quite mint and that SOUND. Luxury, space and the wonder of a V8
burble that sounded like a small block Ford (I love the sound of Fords,
sorry Chebby fans, you can't match the sound).

Yeah, and an UrS Avant. Heck, if I had one of those, I wouldn't have
the Saabaru.
