Look for the lens flare in the last photo. It's there, and it's in a hilariously coincidental spot. I only noticed it b/c I walked away from my laptop, and saw the screen from a crazy angle.

Sweet looking car, too.

WOW, that's a great car, I'm so jealous. Good thing it's not a 5-Speed though or else it'd be missing in the morning.

Enjoy it, that's a great car!

You're going to have to explain this, and it better be good.

well, the way my dad explains it, he basically took the money out of my college/post college money that my parents have set aside for me, which is fine by me, as tuition is taken care of by bright futures scholarship

Changers are key, the Bertone has a 10 disc one. It's really nice to just switch around without taking your eyes off the road

Nice car btw, I love 8 series wagons, and the turbo makes it all the better


on an unrelated note, theres a Volvo specialist shop near me run by an idiot. He got a Volvo 850 turbo in, same color, same wheels, and claimed it to be an R. Also claimed that his new set of Volans he got in were from a t-5....he also wanted to remove my anti-lock brakes unit, because he claimed it was aftermarket. I don't know why I mentioned this all, but your new car reminded me of his new "R"

In my own defense I think a race is now in order. It's my job to make sure F+T defeats "down payment."

PS, allow me to act the statesman. Nice car. I'd take it.
