Hey, I finally saw the rest of the pics in your Picassa album. That thing looks hella clean. I guess even old Italian steel can survive in Texas. Love it.

I keep looking at your Readers' Rides collection and thinking you must really enjoy headaches. But I guess I shouldn't be the one to poke fun with my set...

Those seats (chairs?) are awesome! They look like they came from someone's family room.

Do people constantly ask you if it does 185?

The pictures are VERY flattering. But overall she isn't too bad.

I know I would.

My neighbor has one and I saw it running once and only once. That being said I still love them... just not brave enough to own one.

For me too, my first thought was, "how will you get home?" As a read down the list I truly lol'ed when I got to this point.

Does your BiTurbo have more than 50k miles on it?
It just amazes me that none ever seem to.

25k on the odometer.

But from what I've read (and mine bears truth to the claim) that most ridicously low mileage Biturbos are a case of faulty speedometers.

I can just picture it....

"Alright guys! See ya tomorrow!" Walks out to the parking lot, as he nears he observes a number of rescue vehicles clustered near where he parked. He walks faster hoping to see that its not as big a deal as it seems.....

As he turns the corner around his annoying co-worker's, ugly Juke, he can't believe what he's seeing.....

A dumpster that was filled with Biturbo parts has been dumped onto the parking spot where his car was this morning. The thoughts are racing through his head, eventually the sinking feeling growing in his stomach hardens into seething anger. He drops to his knees and screams to the heavens with only the pain and torment a Biturbo owner can know....

"CLARKSON!"

The sound echos through the parking lot, the city, the pain imbuing the sound with exceptional properties.

An ocean away, a "Peach" of a man, thinning at one end, thin at the other and round in the middle, sits in his garden, polishing his V8 blender. He stops in mid-stroke as the hair stands up on his neck. He smiles and returns to his polish.....

It is late at night and still no word of a safe return.
Wondering if we should send out the search party?

Does the Turbo add fuel for the Backdraft? Don't open the hood.
