I have been driving the Gran Sport to work.

Poor Marge has a problem with her carb, I think it's gastrointestinal. Carb or fuel pump, I don't know but I haven't been able to dive in and I "had" (it's torture) to take the Gran Sport to work this past week. It's the only real driving I have done with it and I am getting REAL use to it. I know Marge sees me drive out in his hot babe with the topless red dress on and she feels bad but a man's got to do what he's got to do. Anyway, I LOVE the sound of this car. After driving Marge all this time hearing something like the music this car makes is really catching my ear. This video does it no justice in person it sounds just like trumpets, and cruising it is just perfect! Anyway, the smoke like weirdness of the video is not smoke out of the pipes just so you know.

And I have to say I am loosing the "OH MY GOD DON'T GET NEAR MY CAR" feeling, I am just enjoying it.

you're supposed to polish the bumper AFTER putting Marge in neutral and pushing her off a cliff with the Gran Sport. C'mon Martin, you don't want to be polishing it up twice now do you?

That car sounds and looks good. nice!

I still love my Marge, I think I can talk her into a "special" relationship with the Gran Sport.

I was going to put the top down but it's a bit dirty so I am going to wash it tomorrow so I have to wait until then.

I would take the photo but it was my challenge and I can't. And by the way it's been quite some time since you were 40.

True, but i have always been abrasive.

The Sonic is behind a school. If nobody beats me to it, I will try to move this challenge on Monday night.

Brian, Car looks and sounds great - I can see how you would get used to that!

Ray, Sorry you had to shovel snow while hearing about Brian driving his car (and considering putting the top down!!!)

On another forum, we heard from one guy all winter long about how nice the weather was in Florida, with cruises every weekend throughout the winter months. Funny how he never bragged about how hot and humid it was, or how big the insects were, every summer!

We're actually quite fortunate up here in the Winter months, the insects are quite a bite smaller then and don't need to chain children and small barn yard animals to the patio furniture...LOL.
