When did you snag an XC70? I thought you bought a T5M before you left for out west....lol. Dude...the 4x4 trucks up here in Northern MI don't have that much fender gap.

Damn nice pics man! Nice to see some people in my neck of the woods. That church is just unreal, sick in pictures but they don't do justice when you're standing at the doors.

Damn you Craig. :lol: Besides having a stock suspension, I think my parking brake jacks the back up a little for some reason when its pulled.

First time being out in N. Arizona and wouldn't hesitate to go back! Really liked Sedona, wouldnt mind retiring there some day. :lol: Nice little microbrewery up in the Village of Oak Creek.

Its the name of the dealer from where it was originally bought out in MD.

Give Tom a break. He just finished school, just started his first job 6 months ago and is barely settling in after purchasing the car. He's doing the smart thing I would imagine which means staying out of debt. :tup:

Comon Craig, there werent enough f bombs in that to be a good ole fashioned MWC ribbing. :lol:

Stock suspension? :lol: Trying to get at least 5 years if not 10 out of the car, so no coilovers or over the top mods. It'll get lowering springs eventually, probably do a standard 35% tint as well. Just need to find the time. :)

Money isnt the problem at the moment, I just need to figure out how to stop working the long hours I am right now. Not enough time to do what I want to the car. :(

If you can stand dry heat you should check out Phoenix. I just moved there from PA a little over 2 years ago and shit is it nice. I don't mind playing golf year round haha

Hell no...debt is the only left in this country. Rack as much up as possible dude. Just think...once you get into trouble you can just give the car away for nothing and take a loan out on a "newish" Acura...lol

I can't dude...it was part of my New Years resolution...to cut down on my swearing. I can only drop the "f"bomb 10 times a week now and I used them all up already.
