Problem? Sounds like it's time to rally the troops for a road trip.

Best car in the whole thread. I can actually see myself driving that one. B-) ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I'm a speed freak and so a 1000 hp Saleen S7TT Competition would suit my fancy. 8-o Plus, the Saleen factory is about a 20-30 mile drive down in Orange County (Irvine, CA to be exact). ;-D

I absolutely love the new Aston Martin DBS, the new James Bond car in the upcoming Bond movie, Casino Royale. It's like a Vanquish, but it's just meaner looking. ;-D

I'd love to do that, but I won't have my liscense until December and he wants us to get the car up here like before November. And then even if I did have my liscense, I wouldn't be able to drive with anyone under 18 until I had my liscense for 6 months. So basically I have to do it with one of my parents. :-[

The Alice Walton write up is hilarous:
...The Wal-Mart heiress' history with vehicles is bumpy. According to the Springdale, Ark., police department, on April 4, 1989, Alice Walton struck a 50-year-old woman who walked into the path of her 1987 Porsche. No citations were issued to Walton, though the woman later died from her injuries. Also, about nine years later in Springdale, Walton was cited and later fined $925 for driving while intoxicated after she lost control of her 1997 Toyota 4-Runner and slammed it into a gas meter. Walton now has a 2006 Ford F-150 King Ranch, which provides her with an ideal blend of luxury and towing capacity.


Just another reason to hate Wal-MArt.

You don't know anyone, other than your parents, that could drive you? Any friends that drive? Road trips are awesome, but plan your hotel accomodations ahead of time. :-° :-[

Got caught down in KC during a big weekend and no reservation. Had to stay out at the airport. !+)

All my friends either also don't have their liscense yet, or haven't reached the 6 month limit to drive with other people under 18. !+)

I definately agree road trips are awesome though...I've taken a few baseball ones in the summer.

Five years ago I had a car sent up to NY from Fla. It cost me around $700. Not sure what the rates are these days but if it's a free Saab then it would be worth it.
