      ^^ When and where?


      If the rain holds off, looks like it's supposed to be in the 50's on Sunday. That may be an opportune time to do some driving before it gets cold and snows again Monday/Tuesday...

      Back in the saddle again!

      yeah it cost me $72.00 to fill up the other day! can't wait to get the gti back up and running

      You're going to spend a whole lot more than that this summer. Mods like yours tend to keep the foot mashed down on the pedal.

      Sweet. There is a Mexican joint that I ate at last week while I was down there. Can't remember where it was, or its name. All I know, is that it was good. It looked as if they bought the place from a 50's diner. I think it was accross the street from Kids-R-Us?

      I'm down for Springfield. I should be getting an air cooled over spring break. Or I could always show off in the Tacoma. 18" BBS's and lower coilovers on the way.

      Is it just me, or for the last couple of weeks, has it only snowed on Tuesday's and Thursday's?
