    I have a '92 Miata that is pure joy to drive, but needs some cosmetic work. I've been thinking of painting it VFT green and putting in a bright red leather interior, but I can't figure out how to do the teeth and trigger hairs. Maybe instead a creamy-greenish with red mottling like a giant N. rafflesiana...

    Ah, hell, I'll just forget it and buy another huge box of plants instead.

    Savings account? What's that?

    yeah you did but for the money they are nice. you saw them jess! funny thing is that they are light for me becase when i hit a bump, i feel the tire not making contact with the ground. sometimes it scares me because my car sways side-to-side sometimes when that happens. over all the tires them selves although cheap @ around 79.00 per tire and have very good traction. i tell you because on the freeways when im driving then get on a offramp the speed limit to take that off ramp is about 25mph and i hit about 50mph on a 97 chevy malibu. anyone street races?

    By the way I am building a Rotor pot to plant VFT's in. It will be a real Rotor with soil and a VFT growing out of the center [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] it's gonna look awsome.

    I thought mini-coopers were a relatively new make of car? So how "old" is old??

    I like my Jeep Cherokee just fine. It hauls plants, mulch and old furniture and stuff.

    However, if I won the lottery I might get me mini-cooper or bug to play with (ummm...that is NOT you, Bugweed!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] ). And definitely I'd get the classic Thunderbird I just saw recently...only classic car I've ever really wanted to own! Man is it a beauty!! Made my heart skip a beat and I don't really care a fig about cars other than for utility work. *sigh* I want that car so bad...
