No 8's seen in Denver!

I just spent the last 4 days driving in and around metro Denver, and never saw ONE SINGLE 8!

In fact, the only 8 I saw in Colorado at all during that time, was a blue one outside of Ft. Collins.

Really surprised me- I would have seen half a dozen on the road randomly in Salt Lake, in the same amount of time.

Where were all of you this past week?

Hiding from the rain?

I was in Denver this weekend, downtown near 16th street mall. I'm down there pretty often but I spend most of my time farther up north in Broomfield and Boulder.

Sorry I missed you, I would have loved to check out your paint job.
I may be in Ft. Lupton in the next 6-8 months, can I look you up if I get over there again?

My wife and I are in Castle Rock on vacation now and I have only seen 2. I did see one FD, one GSL-SE and I did count 113 Subies in a half hour in Boulder on Sunday. I spotted one red auto in Touse NM. Leaving for Vail, maybe thats where they all at. Scott
