    Re: Gosh, where is everyone?echo,echo,echo,echo...

    enjoying the sun and good weather before the rains come this weekend no doubt. I am planning a remodel to add another bedroom and some garage space. All so we can store more useless crap :-( Also trying to figure out what car to buy next but it has to get ~30 mpg though.
    That's my story....

    Where's Ian?

    We've been busy at the condo just about every weekend. Ski lease starts mid-Nov., so we need to be finished by then. I hope to then have time to set up more club activities. Looking at some tours (Jelly Belly, Budweiser), drive/lunch down the river, plus a few other places. Took the car back to the body shop for them to get the overspray off of it. Feels nice and smooth now..... Speaking of new cars, Mark wants to get a Mini now. He's tired of paying big bucks on gas for the Tahoe.

    Re: Where's Ian?

    Haven't seen anything of Ian. Probably playing golf or working. Dora is considering getting a Prius, all I know if she does I will never drive it. That thing is sooooooooo ugly.
    Dora and I considered buying a pair of Minis, she can have a regular and I would like the S. I know when I researched it last year there was a problem with the transmission. If you google "yo-yo" along with Mini you might get it. The car will hesitate and go, hence yo-yo. Excellent crash stats if you get the side air bags (make him get them no matter what car it is).
    I am considering: (unfortunately some are very......"ricey". Perfect for Mark, get him the "Got Rice?" plate frame.)
    Volvo 40
    Suburu Impreza WRX wagon
    Mini
    Honda Civic Si
    Honda Accord/Civic hybrid
    Acura RSX/TSX
    VW Jetta
    Ducati,Aprilla or BMW motorcycles
    and depending what they cost
    Lexus IS250
    Ferrari 512

    Ian IS HERE!!!!!! =D

    hey viv! definitely... the tahoe must be hurting mark a lot! whenever i fill up at costco i see SUV/truck owners in tears
    i happily drive off after ~$40 going into a tank heh heh
    now that one kid is gone, maybe a "fun" zippy little car????

    my sister's actually getting in on the TSX (high 26 out the door i believe, no navvi tho..) and i think we're going to keep her 97 corolla around for a beater
    but i've driven that thing TOO much...
    i think my baby is in better condition than that thing, but it HAS taken a beating over the last 8 years =P
    girl not interested in cars + car = neglected car
    but toyotas can sure take a lick and keep on ticking
    i'll go down your list kevin, if you don't mind

    volvo = no thank you

    WRX Wagon = nice! fast! spacious! awd for the snow ;]

    mini = pretty nice little car, bit over-priced but it IS a bimmer i suppose

    Civic Si = designing's a bit odd, i guess honda's are getting "bangled" as well, but performance is a +++++++

    RSX type-s = made a roundtrip from sac to seattle in one, very "fun", but the ride isn't one for those LONG trips.... 200 hp out of a sweet little 4 banger is nice tho

    TSX = essentially a 4 door RSX, nice car, engine purrs, just gotta go with my sister to get a test drive... or just steal her new one!

    Jetta = chick car imo, young chick car.... no offense to anyone!

    Ducati, Aprilla, BMW crotch rocket = stop playing around, will your wife let you???? my mom will divorce my dad if he drags home a bike, he's had too many close calls in the past...

    IS250 = my friend is a hardcore IS chick, cute girl too! =D i think it rocks, esp. the higher displacement version pushing 306(?) horses... jeez, can see say attack on the e90??

    Ferrari 512 = SLAP wake up kevin... wipe up that drool too!

    Hi Ian!

    Welcome back. How's school?

    Yeah, the Tahoe is a gas hog. He drives lots of miles, so that doesn't help any. He went fishing last weekend at Lake Davis and Donner Lake. Caught a mackinaw (?SP) and some trout... Son is doing good in school, but I sure miss him ;-(. Other son is also doing well in college here in town. He's working a lot, so is gone a good part of the time.

    Thanks Ian

    Let me know about the TSX and how the ride would be on long drives. I wouldn't get the RSX type S just the regular one. I need a commuter car that can hit 30mpg. Jetta diesel +40???mpg (remember I am the hausfrau) and does the IS girl have a boyfriend? I can pick her up in the 512 and talk about Lexus.
    Someday I hope to get a Ducati,Aprilla or BMW. That should be good for 30mpg. I just need to find $8-10k that I don't need.
    Well, how is the school and golf going? Inquiring minds need to know.

    Well back in NorCal finally . . .

    Europe is fun and all, but it's also great to be back home. Only saw a couple of 6ers, probably not all that popular anymore, thanks to very high fuel prices and small roads and parking spaces!

    Ian, drop me a line directly some time, let me know where you are. I'm in the South bay, Sunnyvale.

    Cheers, Bob
