      Haha, that was in '02. I sold it to a dude that ended up getting it back on the road, and then selling it to somebody in Ohio. No idea what ever happened to it after that.

      Exactly what happened to me in my first bus. Mine didn't turn out so lucky. I didn't know it was on fire until it stalled and the gas pedal went to the floor and stayed there (after the return...

      That's another story, then. If it's something you want to do, then see if you can find somebody (grandparent?) to watch your daughter for the day so your wife isn't stuck watching her, and then go...

      You should make the trip up to Greenville next month for Cars and Coffee. There's somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 cars every month. It's always a good time. :thumbup:

      So let me make sure I have this right... You are complaining that Audi isn't fixing your almost 8 year old, out of warranty car for free? :facepalm:

      They had to have changed the pedal cluster, too... It's got a clutch cable. You'd probably have to have a VR6 donor car to swap it back. Still not sure why you'd go to all that trouble to swap it...

      100% agree with doing a mountain drive while you're down here. My advice, though... skip Tail of the Dragon and take the Cherohala Skyway instead. Tail of the dragon is simply a very curvy road...
