This has been a good week. My wheels arrived, I think I have a buyer for my Hiros, and my Final Gear is due to arrive on Friday from UPS. Just thought I'd share.

Well, i have no clue on how it got there.

I have a thing where if i love a certain thing, i can see it from a far away distance and though i passed it up, some details stuck out to me like where the corner lights fit in and the larger ducts.

And mike, i told you the story, haha.

I posted before I saw you. I have an idea who it may belong to. That person should step forward though.

Can't hurt to have a backup. Hopefully won't run into any more ping pong tables.

haha, hopefully not! Well, im going to repair, primer it and hopefully sell it in the near future (of coarse providing the history of this bumper). But yeah, if i cant sell it, back up. I'll put it on everytime i track my car. No fear of damaging it at all. haha

god!!!! whats up with the freaking console *****/buttons!?!?! so my air temp **** goes loose and i figure out the plastic in the center is broken so its not holding on. and then my front and rear defroster buttons are cracked (which was also the case when i bought the car but the dealer replaced it for me). do you guys have the same problems? because i'm having trouble thinking that i made those defroster buttons crack. ive only had to ue the defroster once or twice since i bought the car in march. As for the air temp i never touch it because i always have it at the coldest

Did anyone see Taladega Nights? Its looks silly, but I spoke with someone who actually saw it, and they said it was hilarious.
