      I would be interested definitely however my attendance will depend on homework and work (provided I can get someone to hire me)

      Mmhm work and school are two big factors for me too. Weekends would be tough, but I should be able to get someone to cover me. Anyways, I'm down for gtgs

      i emailed east harbor, and they say that they do have shelter houses, and group lots that can be reserved, and as ickey said, its not too cheap so if we get enough ppl that wanna do this it will have to be a group buy-in , cant put all this money down and have no1 show up, get ahold of me bryan and we can go look at a couple other prospective locations,

      it's blown up, basically...the p.o. ran it out of oil somehow. I'm looking at buying it as a project...the guy who has it now already has a motor lined up for it, but doesn't have a whole lot of time to put it together to resell it himself from what I gather. It's a slushbox, but the price may make up for it...I'll update after I go look at it...unless the big snow storm keeps me from getting there

      Yeah it's pretty crappy in Perrysburg, 795 is still not plowed and driving to BG for class today was horrible.

      Shoot son, reminds me of my buddy's house. He lives out in the country and every winter his driveway piles up with drifting snow which in turn causes me to get stuck.

      Lol, there's a school down my road that has a hugeeeee parking lot devoid of streetlights that is perfect to rip up during snow. During the storm last night I went there and slid alllllll over, thanks to my bald a$$ rear tires.

      Hopefully I'll be getting some Sumitomo's in the future

      Thats why you wait till the plow truck is gone an theres the perfect smooth sheet of snow they couldn't get that drifts even better than the deep powder!

      Upon further review...the passat just isn't my flavor, a nice car and I like the idea of a bigger 4 door for the kids and all, but the auto trans killed it for me. I'm back leaning more towards a 5spd jetta...something I can have a little fun with...so, the search continues for a 5spd jetta....
