About a month ago I caught a bad case of lust that puts any form of lens lust I've had to shame.

I'm sure my wife thinks I'm going through some 2/3 life crisis (I'm way past mid)

Even my participation in the Café has suffered as I find myself drifting back to auto boards.

I was doing fine combating the lust for that one simple letter.... ///M
Then I made the mistake of driving it and I knew that was all she wrote.

My fate was sealed when I took my camera gear along with a duffel to the dealer to make sure it would fit into the minuscule trunk... and it did! :biggrin:

That's the exact car I want when I grow up! (Or when the kids give up their silly demands....like college, clothes, cars, gas, etc.)

My wife and I are DINKs and I never did grow up, nor do I plan to!
Heck, as of a couple months ago I don't even have a job anymore. :biggrin:

Tell the kids that education is overrated, get them a bus pass and send them to GoodWill for some duds - then go have some fun. :biggrin: :biggrin:

Don

-EDIT- I keep forgetting that I don't have a job... we're not DINKs anymore, just SINKs :smile:

Oh man, if only it were that easy! I'm hopelessly committed to these little money suckers. But keep us posted with lots of pictures and I'll enjoy it vicariously through you!

You're going to need that DI when the speeding tickets start piling up. At least NKS means that the insurance premiums will stay low!

That's pretty sweet Don. Awesome ride. Now I have to find some time to ride with you -- let's hit the botanical gardens sometime soon. I still say it needs a rollcage so we can get you out to GIR for some track duty. I'll be there June 9-10.

And don't forget: Valentine 1

Best bumper sticker I ever saw, on the back of a big honkin' Deluxe Motor Home:
"We are spending our children's inheritance...." :biggrin:

I, however, was a touch more practical. When I went to the dealer it was with my beanbag in hand, to make sure it would fit on the window :wink:

Enjoy the sunshine :smile: :smile:

Congrats Don, I know that you two will share a wonderful life together. I have always been a "car guy", but I have slowed down and actually have put the most miles on any vehicle that I have ever owned on my current 1999 Dodge Ram 4x4. I deferred on buying something for me when I bought my wife a new car last May for Mother's Day. Next, I need to help Marissa buy a new car in June. So, it appears that my Ram is going to peak way over the century mark before it gets replaced.

Don
...and your buying a new BMW? :confused:

Well, I forgive you my son. At 55 I got a red Miata and drove it for 10 years. It was a blast. I took my (then 13 year old) grand daughter in it and after a while she said ".......Grandpa when you die can I have this car"

:Shocked:
