Surprise!

Went to have a beer or three at a local Mexican bar and grill this evening and drove the 430. When I went up to get a second Negra Modelo, the owner said: 'Look at this!' A young lady at the bar had seen the car and wanted her picture made with it. He said he told her not to touch it, but I told him 'she can touch anything she wants...'

A little blurry, but you'll get the idea.



p.s. don't tell Mrs. Colonel...

Very nice. The 430 looks stunning too

Just remember, never leave any proof or photographic evidence, people have been divorced for less

Thanks, Arch - my wife has a very good sense of humor, has seen the photo, and reminds me that I'm a heavy sleeper and she really admires Lorena Bobbitt...

Thanks, Archie. Unfortunately, garden shears would be overkill!

Well take my advice and stay out of her way when she says she is going to trim the edges of the lawn and asks you to help

I wondered about that myself (the girl, that is). Looks like the aspect ratio(s) was a litte screwy and when I saw here at the bar, she didn't appear to be that thin. Thin, but not Twiggy...

I may have to head back down this Thursday night...

Take your tape measure and get all of her vital statistics. Tell her (and your wife) that it is reasearch for your buddies on the forum
