The Poi and Penny need to take their wagons elsewhere.

This here is 242 country. :cool:


Well, I didn't get nearly as much done as I had planned (http://www.forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=126335) before the Sunday Swedish cruise-in at XXX root beer in Washington. I did however, accomplish most of the things. Yes, there are still no reverse lenses. I have access to a few sets, I just haven't gotten to it yet. :-P

Anyway, got the front clip all swapped over, which means the bumper trim could be put on. :nod: Obviously that cleaned up the front end quite a bit. Got new windowscrapers, but you can't really see those. :rofl:

Here are a few pictures from the cruise and also a quick little shoot I did tonight before coming home. Keep a close eye on the car, it won't be staying like this for very long....on the outside or under the hood. :omg:

Rest stop in Centralia on the trip up...

Tried to stand on a rock to get a shot from 'up above' but it only kind of worked...

I was just realizing I forgot to mention that as well. Yes, the whole car will be changing quite a bit. :)

I voted 242, but the wheels on the silly 240 wagon are better.

Even though the 245 wagon looks good, I'll have to dis-agree on which 240 has better looking wheels.

Heh, not necessarily, but there are a ton of other things on my mind right now. I'm totally lost though. I get the Poi/Penny:965/245 thing now, but I have no idea why Tye labeled this thread that. What originated the title? *sigh* I need to go to sleep.

But not until after I've spent a few hours planning out my trip. And maybe squeeze in a few minutes of looking for a place to buy.

this needs to be a checkbox poll.

Kyle what are you looking for a place to buy.....what?3bed, 2bath, but more importantly, 2 car garage and built within the last 10-15 years. And of course, located RELATIVELY closely to where I work. 2 bedroom one bath could even be good 'nuff. $225k cap, less preferred, obviously.

I guess I'll make an OT thread on OVT.
