Wouldn't be out of the question for me to deliver, either....  I work all over the midwest....  MI,IL,OH,MO,IN,IA,KS,KY would all be possibilities.

 

Nothing wrong with it....   my wife loves it, but lately she's been thinking that she would love something newer and bigger even more!

Unless it was a joke that I also don't get, shoes = tires.  Probably trying to figure out if it comes with snows or not.

It has good all seasons on it right now...

 

If you mean what kind of shoes my wife comes with....  she doesn't go with it, even though you are likely newer AND bigger.  Her shoes are generally Reef sandals in the summer and Merrel or Sorel in the winter!

Correct, shoes=tires.   Might help to list some ski related accesories like what kind of tires, fog lights, etc.  Bu, if it comes with Blizzaks or something else snow/ice dedicated you should mention that here for sure.

It has "Viking Snow Tech" tires on it.  I've never really heard of them, but that thing kicks ass in the snow.

I'm not buying a car, but since I can't go skiing, I thought I would throw in a link

http://www.consumerreports.org/rssfeed/eng0511tir.html?KEYID=I58RSS1

"In a separate series of tests, Consumer Reports rated the Michelin X-Ice best among 12 models of winter tires on the market. The Viking Snow Tech placed second, and the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice came in third. The Michelin and Goodyear have excellent snow grip. The Viking is best suited for all-weather use and more moderate winter conditions."

 

 

Looks like the Viking  (made by Continental) is a snow tire from a few years back (looks to be a test from around 2005).

 

How much tread is left on 'em?

Hmm...  good info.  They seem to be pretty damn new.

They could be brand new; the design is from 2005, not the actual tire, so you might not find it heavily marketed on tire rack etc.  1st looser isn't too bad a rating,  especially if the tire see a lot of bare pavement as well as snow and ice.

I was like you once....  You'll appreciate autos one day.  How the hell can you drive a stick, drink a cup of coffee, talk on a speakerphone and surf the internet on an Iphone all at the same time?

I'm pretty sure you aren't supposed to do any of that stuff while driving ;)

U. P. - Did you sell this? Did you get your price?

Ha...  I haven't been on here in a while...   I just read through this post.  Funny about the comments I had about a stick.  I guess I still contend that an automatic is better in most instances, I DID just buy a car with a manual transmission!

To answer your question, no.  We still have the car.  We never really tried too hard to sell it...   if anyone is interested, we still might sell it, although it probably doesn't make as much sense now.  It spends most of its time these days parked at the airport parking lot.   It will get more use in the winter.

 

That Porsche, on the other hand is getting plenty of use right now!!!

Can I get a hit of that before you put it out?

You wait...  that tuning shop IS going to be awesome!  So far, I have the walls framed in.  Wiring is next.

I never doubted it for a second.  If you can afford a Porsche a world class tuning shop is chump change!  (Unless you buy a stone grind machine.)

 

I can't wait to see how you construct and mount the hot box.

I'm not going to have a hot box.  I'm not really that big a believer in them.  I do have a boot shell spreader and Foredom grinder, though.

 

As for the 911....  I've wanted one pretty much my whole life, and decided to pull the trigger.  It's an '03, but has low mileage.  I travel a ton for work, so my wife drives it the most, but it sure is fun!!!

I want to hear more about your wife's feet

You really don't want to.....  like most of us, her feet have spent the better part of their life in ski boots.  They are kind of gnarly, with bumps and protrusions...  (thus the foredom grinder...  for her boots, not her feet!).  Lucky for her, (and me) she's pretty cool to hang out with.

 

I WILL post pics if you want!
