It's been a while . . . what's FC's current car plan?

Hey, it's been a while since I checked in here. Life got busy and I've sort of tuned out of a lot of the on-line forums i used to frequent, including this place.

How's everyone doing?

Other than FC and his knee. :keeps:



Side note: if you want a cure for your automotive obsession, buy a Juke. Apparently.

Hey Lup!!! We missed you. Stick around a while.

Here's what you missed:

Everyone bought a tesla or a porsche (except me)... Everyone hates Trump (except FF).... Everyone's kids got older (most are in college now)... I need your input on my kitchen design project (see the thread)...

Thats about it.

And RIGHT after lup left, I bought a pony car missing half the bangers. Why'd you make me do that, lup?

Glad to see you back!

Good to see you back !!

As far as vehicles go, we ended up replacing our 205,000 mile Odyssey with Toyota’s “Shaggin’ Wagon”.

I am now on the hunt for a used Miata.

My BMW now has 159,000 miles and I have replaced ALL 4 window regulators.

Hey Jay! Hope you, the misses, Jake and current pet(s) are doing well!

Two years in SC, and Jutta still works in Bothell!

I was going to give you a call the other day.... its been a while.

I'm in the process of moving... will have to fill you in on that....
There are a couple of threads here.

Keep in touch - I have to go to the new house and figure out how to move a forklift that is stuck on my rental trailer... lol....

Josh's reply.


Welcome back lup! Automotive obsession may lay dormant for years years, but you're never fully cured. (like herpes?) I knew you'd be back eventually.
