    Thanks, I wasn't sure if I wanted them painted...

    ...but after doing it, I'm glad I did. With the open design of the wheels, the calipers really stick out and look rusty without some kind of paint. Red seats and red calipers with a silver car make a good combo, IMO.

    Good Pic of your car

    Like the red calipers - the contrasting color stands out well

    We're way ahead of you on that one...

    The younger one has crashed it a couple times, over the years; just never totaled it.
    He's currently not driving anything at all; long story. :-(

    You should let your sons drive it...

    ...it might come back totaled and you could get another Mini :-)

    Sorry, bad joke, but I couldn't resist.

    it IS Kent County, but I don't know the road...

    I just started driving around off the beaten path. This is somewhere not far from Rte 1, behind the car dealerships (BMW, Toyota, Chevy) near Medding and Sons seafood restaurant. Other than that, I have no idea what the road is.

    we got the snow, it just melted...

    ...and the TexZan has been sitting in the garage waiting for the roads to clear. Finally! There are still some piles on the sides in some areas, but for the most part, things are pretty clear.

    Good-looking car...

    The red calipers stand out nicely. The road looks familiar, too, for a guy who grew up in Kent County...

    Well, I have no sympathy for you...

    Our three kids are all grown, and we STILL own a minivan. :-(

    When the wife craves chocolate...

    ...you take the long way to get it. At least in February when it's sunny and 45 in Delaware!



    What a string of events. The house in FL finally rented yesterday, two hours later we get a call that we sold the Murano, the weather is awesome, and the Cowboys won the Superbowl...okay, well, maybe not the last one, but at least things are looking better than they were a week ago! BTW, if you're looking for a minivan (grrr...I guess that's what 3 kids does to you), go drive the new Nissan Quest. We'll be getting ours shortly (the Honda drove terribly and the Toyota wasn't bad, but the Nissan actually drove quite well).
