OT - Selling Jeep.... Found New Car

Well.... the other day the girlfriend was sitting in a cold vinyl passenger seat of the Jeep, with water dripping onto her feet. (I just put the heater back in yesterday, and the top is kinda half-a$$ed installed) Any way... she looks at me and asks.. when are you gonna get a REAL car? I just laughed and said, This IS my real car. I'm just waiting on summer.

Well... today I'm out running loose, and I found a small car lot. I've fallen in love all over again!! Now all I need to do is sell the Jeep!! Boy is my girl gonna be thrilled that I'm finally gonna own a REAL car!! I'm glad I've started listening to her!!

Enjoy the pics!!



I thought this one was EXTRA sweet!!


If you want you can check out a couple extra photos here:http://community.webshots.com/album/27578241sBgysPlBdB

Sorry the pics aren't great.... it's just a cheapo digital camera. The real reason for my outting today was to test it out.... seems to work better outside.

Re: OT - Selling Jeep.... Found New Car

I'd love to have one of those little Mini's.
Seems like you could just pick it up and carry it to the gas staion if you ran out of fuel.

Re: OT - Selling Jeep.... Found New Car

Drew - What was the IN2DEEP and INTWODEEP deal all about?
Those are the old Mini's !! See any Cooper S models? Rare to see so many in one place.
The NEW mini's are on the way.
If VW can re-issue the Beetle and make a buck maybe the Mini can do it , too.

Re: OT - Selling Jeep.... Found New Car

The password part of this BBS is VERY annoying TO ME. I could never remember the password, and the caps really trip me up. So.... I created a screen name for here at home, and one for my access from work. I don't log out of either one, and when I visit the site I'm already logged in. I can reply or post without a major hassle. But I wanted the names similar........

The minis are totally kewl!! I've never seen ONE in person, now I've stumbled onto 10-12!! I've always wanted one, but talk about an IMPRACTICAL car. Damn they are tiny!!

BMW is re-issueing the MINI, I think in '03. I've already seen pics and a write up.... seems pretty nice. I can't remember any specs, but I know the price was out of MY reach. I guess I'll stick with the Jeep.... but seeing a lot full of MINIs really turned my head.

How long does it take for a car lot to discover a check is bad??........

Re: OT - Selling Jeep.... Found New Car

Just one question: do you DRIVE it, or WEAR it? I think my underwear might be able to handle my big ass better than one of those.

On th plus side, I remember something about those being killer rally cars if you build them right.

Re: OT - Selling Jeep.... Found New Car

Hmmmm.....lets see......drop in a Dana 30 front, a Dana 44 rear and a 258.....some 35 inch boggers......hmmm....I see some potential here......

Just as an aside, I have Gran Turismo 2 on the Playstation, and the Mini is one of the cars you can drive--within it's class it kicks booty! One of their little tech notes says there are Mini only race classes out there. Looks like fun to me!

Hmmmm.....Cessnas have round headlights too!

Re: OT - Selling Jeep.... Found New Car

I sold my Mini 6 years ago and used the money to by my CJ5. The two vehicles have so much in common, the Mini is just a front wheel drive Jeep with 10 inch wheels. Have fun.
