That would be a good idea too. I imagine we all aren't going to spend 3 hours at the show. There is plenty of time to do whatever else! Hopefully there are no other events going on downtown so we have a free parking garage to take some pics!

I should go test drive it for a few hours and swap out the trans and driveline. Maybe that would fix my car...

I'm heading out of town this weekend so I can't make the mini-meet and I'm bummed because the World of Wheels car show is pretty awesome.

So tempting! But I'm trying to hold off for a full swap. At least until my trans explodes and it becomes an emergency so I don't have to drive my POS van.

This is the old one. Replacement one looks just like it, but green.

That makes me think of the video somewhere online where someone's van sank when they were trying to pull their jetski into it on a boat ramp. Good thing you opted for the tactical amphibian package.

I wish it would sink!! Then we could have a suby mini-meet van-burning. Unfortunately it's too useful to kill without just cause.

It was a quick response as I was under the impression from the original discussion about it that everyone thought the contest was a bad idea. It was said entirely in jest. I wasn't aware a "caption contest" would only be open to entries that were deemed to be strictly unoffensive.

Either way, I am not trying to seriously participate. It was a quick poke at the abnormal use of a van. I apologize to Jeff if I offended him. To you as well for that matter, for the possibility of offending Jeff.

On a different note, I called about this earlier today. They are pretty firm on the price. The WRX has a new motor and turbo on it as apparently the last turbo let go and took the motor out when the previous "new owners" were driving it back to Illinois. The dealership did the honorable thing and bought it back from them. They then put in a new motor and turbo I was told. Which makes it understandable that they are firm on the price.

Funkster, i wasnt really that worried. Judging by Jeff's response, i don't think he cares too much either :P. No apology necessary

Yeah no worries Funkster, I'm against being offended as a rule.

Good to hear. We can continue to develop into best buds.

Just kidding...I would never be friends with anyone from NASIOC.
