Hey now, don't ya'all go raggin' on Florida cars....

They're mean, clean and pristine...the lot of 'em. LOL!

Actually, unless you live close to the ocean, Florida is a great place to keep a car rust free. Michigan on the other hand......

If Nagin had half a brain he'd go on TV and make a public announcement that those dead cars were valuable and everyone should stay away from them. They'd all be gone by morning.

Lash probably knows this, but just saying "Michigan" near your car will cause rust.

That'* good stuff, lol. Both true statements.

And Scott, of course I remember Coggin. We did our small invasion there in January.

You must have been swimming in the Kosher section of Daytona Beach. The High Blood Pressure section is desalinated.... :P

Uhm, I think Bill'* comment was tongue-in-cheek...
