      It's amazing what she can do when she has hi-speed access 'eh?
      And read very carefully, you can probably figure out what's going on. Or hell, just read another one of the pic threads that's currently going on right now....
      Not likely to be any pic posting tonight, we just got in from dinner with Brad's mom / step-dad and we have an early day tomorrow.

      Ah, the password.
      Now, this new nick, does it include Klaus, or is it just about the headache, and "the other car"?
      Any name yet on "the other car"?

      Klaus will never be a 16V. And he currently has no engine in him...maybe that's an August project. Anyway, got 1100 miles on the new one, and I'm just not gonna say anything or I'll jinx it. No time to post tonight, just flew with Daun to Dayton and back to get a key, at some point I'll post THOSE pictures too. I will I promise...no, really.

      Title says its silver....but here are some pics of a couple of beach bums chillaxxin'....


      So being from the north and all, I had to get to know some of the locals:

      We went out boating in, well, weather we'd call "blue skies and sunny" in Ontario, yeah, there was thunder. And THIS!!! Only half of the usual Rocco-buying omen(I usually get two rainbows), but then again, this car is *different*...

      And I had to do some touristy things, like buy some fruit! It felt like I was being watched though

      That's it for tonight, not sure what I'm doing tomorrow yet.....but there'll be more pics. I'm in Wilmington now, so it's all good.

      You know... That the convertable looks a lot smaller than a standard MKII.
      Missing the sweeping C pillar, looks shorter/smaller.

      The coolest thing about the way it was converted is that it retains the C-pillar line, but it turns it into a spoiler instead! Beautiful!

      Not yet. I used a tripod and did bracketed shots to learn HDR on... THEN it will be a nice picture. I ahve a few of my new car too. Sorry to be so late posting, and there will be a break in the tour. The possible concepts included picking up an 86 325is in Atlanta as well, which didn't materialize, this was always supposed to be a "two 86" tour (there HAD been a 325is in Talahassee which wasn't that minty fresh), but what can you do? Bimmer sellers are flakes I guess. And another option was for me to head for Philly tomorrow for antiWaterfest parties, but I decided to come home since hubby was mopey. (And I leave for a week at Osh Kosh next Friday, so the tour will carry on...not to mention I REALLY need to get a root canal done Monday)
      Anyway, the new addition carried me trouble free for 1600 miles and is without a word of a lie the best long haul car I own. I'll be road tripping a LOT in this one. ** PLUS** it has working AC! Customs was a total breeze, and nobody even came out to look at the car at either US OR Canadian Customs. The Canucks gave me a grilling about how I knew the seller and that ****, but I guess I passed the honesty test. Next hurdle is to "borrow" wheels and tires off her silver jealousy ( the headache) to pass safety, the new one has worn tires. But she has landed immigrant status anyway.

      For the record, 'twas an "es" not the more common "is." I want the sport package and good gas mileage.

      So I expect I'll be seeing this beastie again in about a week? She can have some nice hangar parking while we're away.

      Glad to hear it. I ended up putting in a 9 hour day at work, plus some futzing with the Arrow afterwards, and *just* got home from the trek at about 10:00. Glad to be home.... but missing the road-tripping with you already.
      Tomorrow will probably be all about test-flying that minty-fresh Lycoming.
