No, but I test drove a BMW Z4 Convertible for my aunt in Tennessee...the car was sweet. Probably worth the 5 hour drive she will have if she buys it.

I drove mine yesterday and today, cruise night last night and car show today. Show season kicks into high-gear right about now in my area.

No, we had storms in the area yesterday so the wife and I joined the neighbors in their pool and and killed 1-1/2 bottles of Silver Patron. Needless to say I didn't attend any of the car shows in my neck of the woods today. :mrgreen:

No, but I drove her to work twice last week in 100 degree temps with the top down. Got a bit of a sun burn, but it was soooo worth it. 8-)

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.
