      Howdy Gang,

      Its been a long time since I've last posted considering how much I used to frequently post. Work has kept me busy for 90% of it, and the other 10% i've been just enjoying to myself and with friends who i've been lucky to visit with which is not that much time.

      Work for me is about to take a huge turn that will start to unfold over the next several months so before any of you think i'm MIA or gone for good, pick up the phone and just call me, its that simple.


      Miss you guys. Try and play nice so we don't scare off all the noobs. At least act like we like each other in these forums.

      Not sure if you guys heard, but Texas now has a new general-issue license plate design.

      http://www.txdmv.gov/vehicles/licens...es/general.htm

      From what I was told, you can go to your local DMV or place where you renew your registration, pay $7, and walk out with a set of the new plates. I hate the current design so I am going to see if this is true.

      It is... Looks like the "classic plates " ... Dunno if you can just buy new ones at will but can't imagine them turning down money either...

      10:30 is too....it's just too near opening time and it's on the edge of being early.
      And nobody spoke up.

      11am Sunday everybody! Be there or be square.

      Maybe they'll let me do a 20min session in my car when the karts are on lunch break.

      I think I might go with black or gold.
