Thanks everyone. When I first joined this forum I was 14 years old (!). Just as much as this forum has changed, I have changed, and I bet Alan (Sereboff) would not recognize me as he was the first on this forum to introduce themselves to me.
As for the BMW, it's great! It's really fun, and pretty quick too. Handles nicely, with a lot of body roll. I don't know if any of you have seen the new purchase but it is a BMW 1600 Cabriolet. It is pictured in the Wednesday night meet thread.
