Man my first ride in the car was bittersweet.... I bought it on a Monday night & was to pick it up on the Wednesday. Tuesday morning hospital calls my Dad has just passed away. Not entirely unexpected as he was very ill. Picked the car up Wednesday drove home & met my sister who had just arrived from out of town. From there we drove it to the funeral home to sign the arrangements.

But after that we drove it up to my dad's cottage & had a couple beers to remember him. I like to think he saw me drive the car in there as he knew I was looking at cars before that.

Drove it home, had most of the neighbors over for an "approval of the purchase party".

Then pried those crappy trim rings off of it once everyone left.

Took my girlfriend to dinner and a University of Hawaii volleyball game. On the way home from that I had tricked out gen 4 pull up along side me on the freeway right before my exit. He kept surging forward and dropping back. So I droppped it into 3rd gear and floored it from 70 mph. The permagrin started at that moment.

The next morning I put my CAI in and my neighbor who owns a 2011 vert stopped by to introduce himself. Evey time we see each other we stop and chat about our mods now. His wife hates me because he keeps getting ideas for his car from me
