Thanks guys. Even Virginia Beach has a lot of flooding still. It is good to hear you're OK after those tornadoes - from what I understand there were 5 in the Richmond area, and one closer to the NC/VA border.

Yeah the one on the Carolina Virginia border came right by my mother's and my son's house then came within a mile of my house. Luckily no injuries here, but I think Richmond had pne or two fatalities. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those involved in the tornadoes and the flooding.

Good afternoon all.

Been back home for a few days now. My wife and I just got back from a two week trip to Europe that included a 7 day cruise. Great time but we got our butts kicked lol. Barcelona, Gibralter, Marseille, Genoa, Pisa/Florence and Rome.

Glad to hear everyone in the hurricane's path is okay. Speaking of tornadoes, we had 3 here in SE MI two nights ago - two EF1s and one EF0 in Wayne and Monroe Counties.

I know it's been a while since I've been on here. I was actually about to sell my 06 but yesterday I changed my mind. I had a guy lined up to buy the car, at a very good price, but when it came down to it he flaked out. Since the whole situation completely changed I became a little reluctant at selling this car and buying an Aerocoupe I found for sale (maroon 87 with 4,100 miles on it). And then last night I dropped my 06 off at a dealership, for some long overdue maintenance work, and the service dept guys were absolutely drooling over it. That reaction, plus some input from my Wife, basically reassured me to not sell it and made me realize what I have in this car. It was great to even have this whole situation come about but I think it worked out how it was supposed to. My Aerocoupe is out there and can wait til the opportunity to have both cars. The 06 has had some battery issues for a few years so it's in for a new negative battery cable, new battery and a trans fluid change.

Good morning guys.

We've had some cool mornings this week - yesterday was 43 degrees when I headed out for work and today was 48. I'm still all messed up with the time change from our trip so I've been up and wide awake at 3-4am thus I've been getting to work super early (might as well).

Yeah me too! I'll be picking it back up from the dealership today. I guess that whole situation made me realize that I should invest in some maintenance that I've been putting off for several years - like the battery/cable, like the trans fluid change, like the brakes. I think the battery has been giving me issues because there was so much corrosion built up in the actual negative cable/sleeve that I don't think it was allowing the necessary charge through. I've just been so busy with buying and renovating two homes (home #2 still ongoing), getting married and going on some good vacations.

I drove the BudChev over 100,000 kms on the odometer today. It was a big deal for me, so I posted about it with pics.



It's weird seeing the extra digit there. It's so old!

Well, you know what they say -- "Age isn't really a number; it's a state of mind."
