Default A wee bit o' whorage, finally. (56k watch out!)

OK. I finally took a little time to produce some whorage of the new ride. It was quick & dirty, nothing really noteworthy here but better than shots from my driveway. I think I have a name for this car, but I won’t reveal it yet.

Before you get into the pictures, I need to thank a few people that helped me tremendously during my search for a car. If I’ve forgotten someone, I apologize…I’m quite old and can’t remember my own name sometimes. When I do remember, I’ll add you to the list. Thanks to these guys in particular:

ECHO SSEI – for keeping an eye out and checking on several cars in AZ
HANS – for keeping an eye out in ID
CHADOW427 – for looking at a car in ID for me
MIKE1053 – for countless build sheets I pestered him to run
GXPVINCE – for countless CarFax reports I pestered him to run
DARKSHADOW – for checking out a car in Chicago and preventing me from buying a piece of crap
CRZYDNMD72 – for taking the time to check out this car in OK and giving me a on the condition
SKREGAL – for checking out a car in St Louis that was in close contention with this one. This guy really went over the top for me…unbelievable effort. I love you, maaaan. (But not in a gay way).

BC Rocks!

I got slammed for not giving any details on the car, so here ya go:

2003 SSEi, black (in spite of sig pic) w/taupe interior. Driven about 72,000 miles by a young lady in her 50'*, non-smoker. She kept it pretty clean inside. In fact, she bought floor mats to put over the SSEi floor mats so they wouldn't get dirty. It'* lived in a garage all it'* life, and still does. It has pretty much everything except XM and a locking gas flap - heated seats, moonroof, 12 disc changer, HUD...It has no mods, other than minor cosmetic (if you want to call 'em mods - you'll have to find those yourself ), and no mods are planned at this time. It wants to be washed every frickin' day.

Hey! You forgot to thank me for doing nothing and not bothering you in any way or talking to you at all. That'* gotta be worth something.

Nice pics and a great choice for the backround!

Did you drive to pick it up? If so, how far?

Oh, yeah, and a special thanks to Lash for, well, I dunno. Thanks, Lash. It’* a long story, but in short my son & I flew to OKC at the last minute (things fell into place in a hurry), bought the car, then drove straight through back to Utah. 800 miles maybe? You can check on Google...Oklahoma City, OK to West Point, UT. Left UT at 1:30 Saturday, spent about 1 hour in OKC, got home about noon or so Sunday, MiniVan Bob showed up Monday evening fresh from WCBF. I wish they would hurry up and invent beaming.

Yes, they are. I got away with it for years on the SSE because I didn’t have a bracket and Kim would tell the cops if they would show her where it’* supposed to go, she’d put it on. That worked until some hard guy rookie cop stopped her and gave her a “fixit” ticket. She didn’t want to push her luck with this car.
