enjoyed the story about your dad, his interests, and his experience

sounds alot like my dad, lost him too early unfort but stories like this allow me to remember him fondly - thanks

Oy, a man, his 930, and a private airstrip... the Just Not Right factor is OFF THE CHARTS!

Muwahahaaaa!

Passing ze torch... just yesterday I had my 10yr old shifting and steering from the passenger seat whilst we rolled along w/ his sisters in back.

Good times for all of us, I'm certain this will all be burned indellibly into their memory banks. I know I've done right when I pull up the driveway and they come running to the car frantically exclamating in unison (and that's typically my GIRLS!) "can you take us for a ride!?!?"... makes a dad proud.

Large Member: I didn't have the slightest idea that my comments about my dad would have resonated with others, but I'm certainly glad that it has brought back "father memories" for people here! And too funny regarding your "just not right" comment - ha! An example of that, that I sort of mentioned previously, is the funny sight of me flooring it alongside one of the trains passing by (and pulling away in a hurry) - probably gives the conductor a nice chuckle!

Cole: one of these day I am going to follow your lead and spring for personalized plates. I've experimented with letter/number combos that are options in Texas and I might go with 12-MPG. Wadaya think? I know that the humor would be lost on many, but I would laugh my narrow ass off every time I see it!

Ronnie:
We are pretty lucky here. They are making the plates out of PVC now and they are really reasonable. You can get pretty much whatever you want on them and then the state will reserve that for you if you want.
Love the 12-mpg, to bad it's true, here we are at $4.69 a gallon right now.

Red Turbo:

Thanks Man glad you like the old girl !!!!!

Ronnie,
That's one clean white 930. You need to take more photos of your car with the train going by (or is it the other way?). There's not too many photos like that. 12-MPG sounds great. We need to shove off the overly PC world. Nice story about your Dad.

I agree with Paul..."just not right" is correct for what you can do playing around on the airstrip next to the passing train!

Cole's white 930 is one of a kind which his plate is fitting. Nice!
