      you were one of a select crew!!!...always wanted to goto one of those shows....but growing up in small town ohio....they were the debil!!!....although wouldve sucked to be at the toronto show!!!

      And you think the bible belt of the south was any more receptive to musicians who would dare drop the F-bomb on an album? I was a bit of a rebellious youth, so I would have gone no matter what!

      do we have a local source for parts or are we still limited to the i-net or mail order? I'm just curious. I'm gonna need wheel bolts soon.

      Nothing available locally. You're stuck with online vendors for those unless someone has an extra set.

      the scr region puts on an event about once a month. They ran the arrive and drive autox saturday at BMW, and than a regular points event sunday in the same place.

      I try to get out to an event if I can, there are many people in this area who regularly participate and dedicate cars to it. Not so much in the vw community though. I do recall a very quick rabbit there running regularly.

      pm me your # and I will text you my wifey's # as I am in VA till december, your welcome to grab them and try em... they should work, the backs almost positive, the fronts may be a bit too long, worst case you will get half the bolts you need, half price brand new!

      I'm so sorry about your situation, but on a good note, at least you'll have us to hang out with.

      Look on the bright side.... at least it's not Korea . your life is what you make it not the location you are put into... make the best and I bet you're be going elsewhere depending on your career field only if it is for a few months at a time then you're be happy to return to Shaw.

      Are you looking at buying or renting? Do you have school age children? Also just heard on the news today that kershaw County is trying to cut the JV sports in their schools to save money. So if you have teens who play sports they may will have to wait to play.

      If your looking in Camden, look in the country areas, not in the city limits.

      Then you definitely will be wasting your time within the city limits.

      One thing our realtor taught us when we were buying our first house was to put a 24hr expiration on the offer. It keeps the seller from screwing with you by sitting on your offer while they try to negotiate other offers.


      yea we did that but they all came in with in a hour of eachother i guess thats what happens when you are looking @ foreclosed houses

      Ahhh... yeah... I'm sure offers just pour in on those.

      if it's a nice house ... one house we looked/bid on was only on the market 2 days and we weren't the first offer, it's fn crazy.

      anyways whats the scene like there? i met a few people @ tail of the dragon but i am horrible with names and forgot their names.

      werd up?! Wow nrowensyb got a WRX!? No more s4?? Was the S4 a lemmon? Issues with it? Don't recommend ever getting one? (I always consider buying one of those one day) I actually love Subies - I really wanted a 2004 Forrester XT for a while. I still do I guess.

      Nice rainy day over here in Redbank so far today.
