You can't convince me, B... I used to own a 1984 Corvette. There is a reason I call 120+ mph "VetteVille"

i've got too much shit for a condo, and hate rules. i might as well just stay home at that point.

i dont need a big house, no... but i don't want to live in the ghetto.
unfortunately, there's NO nice houses that are small w/ a garage and that are reasonably priced.

New Britain in certain areas can be nice but I would never live there. Hell I fear for my life sometimes.

dude, you have no idea.

there is not 1 area in vermont that i can think of that would resemble new britian.

perhaps, a polish/spanish Comptons is a good description.

I linked a pic of a guy in a del Sol that did something like that. He was going down the highway when he hit a small bump and air just caught it. When flying up in the air and hit the ground HARD. Top was completely ruin. FnF style owns.


How about checking Ebay.
