Did you get her, or seriously considering it? Either way good luck

If you got her, we would love to see some pics.

Welcome to FL and congrats on the car from a fellow TR owner!

You are from SoCal and the weather has been bad? Something is not right!

Congrats

Enjoy every minute of the experience. It is something to realize your dream isn't it?
Perhaps a bit scary at first. But when you keep going back to the garage and when you drive it and it doesn't explode, you get that permenant smile on your face. That's the real experience. And the urge to go and sit it in or simply stand in the garage with your mouth open never goes away.

Please post pictures and driving impressions when able. Black is my favorite TR color.
Welcome to FL.


Drive it well.

You guys are pissin' me off! I've wanted one of these since I drove my first one back in the early '90s and have yet to get one. Quit talkin' like these cars are what I know they are!

Seriously though, congrats on the purchase. I just lost one to another guy lookin' at the same car, but I'm still shoppin'!
