    Not that anyone really cares, but what the hell. I complained enough abut the old one.

    Just fer reference my old car was a 1989 Honda Civic Hatchback with less than 100,000 miles on it that was the worst piece of crap I ever owned in my life. I know lots of people have great ones, but mine sucked - bad. Everything including the seats was crumbling before my eyes. I had to drive around with the heat on in 90 degree weather to keep it from overheating. I got tird of trying to have that fixed after three unsuccesful visits (robberies) from my mechanic. Anyhow - I donated the car and got a really sweet deal on a....

    1998 Hyundai Tiberon with only 54,000 miles. Mint condition, great AC, airbags on both sides, power stuff, a CD player. A car was always something that was used to get me from point A to B. That may have been why I was always so freaking miserable driving. This thing looks amazing - and feels like I'm sitting in my living room. I never thought I'd get emotional over a car - but I love this thing as much as my Bongo. Jest felt like sharing. :D

    This isn't my actual car - but it looks just like it

  5. Joe, how would you get a couple of 2x15 cabs in that car? A real car is a van or pickup. Congratulations and have fun.
