My new life...

Well as most of you know I sold my Jeep back in december for MANY reason which I am not getting into now...

I do miss my Jeep A LOT, but I am also enjoying having a car... it is a HUGE CHANGE! I'll be back in the Jeep community soon enough, but for now here is what I drive: 2007 VW GTI:








It's fast, quick, and agile... everything my Jeep was NOT.



OK on another note... I will be at GSMW and I am looking forward to seeing some of you guys again and meeting more of you! To keep it somewhat technical here is a pic of a fond memory of my WJ!

I just got rid of my ZJ and bought a Mazda 5
I'm sure that I'll miss it every time I pass the gas station

LOL I am getting over 26 MPG's driving pretty fast and spooling the Turbo all the time. It does take 91 octane though.

damn... I wish I found this forum 2 months earlier... I would have gave your Jeep a fantastic home.

Nice Jack-O-Lantern.

Not bad, I would love to have a nice little car to drive back and forth to work. I don't think my Jeep has moved in the drivway in a month and a half. It's deader than a doornail right now but I could never part with her. I definitely understand your situation, if mine wasn't paid for and I hadn't spent so much time and money on it, I might be singing a different tune now. See you in May
