Default OK, which one of you guys...

used my name in vain? I bought a 94 and tried to get tags that say "TMTS94" and it's taken, what are the odds????

I've had my dealer friends keeping an eye out and finally found a garage queen some guy traded in. Its a 1994, Torch Red, 6 speed and every option without a mark on it. It's got some miles but looks new. More pics when it gets out of the shop, just getting serviced and detailed;

Hmmm....my connections in the licensing bureau paid off. That's payback for messing with me all the time.

Beautiful car.

No sold the C5 a year or so ago, was getting too difficult to use as a daily driver with bad knees. The C4 s a garage/show queen, not a daily driver.

Something about C4's... it doesn't hurt that even good ones don't cost a lot.

Everything remains the same in Spain... If I was smart I'd sell off at least two cars and buy one really good one. Resale is pretty good on my mustang and my C6. I could get a c7, but would still have a payment. I still really like my 91... insurance will kick my ass on 4 cars this June though.

Pete doesn't like us anymore, I think
I think the dog and cat are too busy doing a stage show in Korea to have time for us.

Default And now for something completely different...

Two Norwegian hunters named Olaf and Sven, hired a pilot to fly them into the Canadian wilderness, where they managed to bag two big Bull Moose. As they were loading the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could take only the hunters, their gear and one Moose.

The hunters objected strongly saying, "Last year we shot two, and the pilot let us take them both...and he had exactly the same airplane as yours."

Reluctantly the pilot, not wanting to be outdone by another bush pilot, gave in and everything was loaded. However, even under full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down, crashing in the wooded wilderness.

Somehow, surrounded by the moose, clothing and sleeping bags, Olaf and Sven survived the crash.

After climbing out of the wreckage, Sven asked Olaf, "Any idea where we are?"

Olaf replied, "I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year."

What's the difference between the C4 and C5 that affects your knees? Does the C4 provide better leg/knee support?

No difference, but the C5 was a daily driver, the C4 s a weekend car. Otherwise they feel the same to drive with the exception that the seats feel lower in the C4 and there's not as much bend in the knees.
