My new ride!

Flew to El Paso and drove my little red rocket home last week! Long enough to be a sweet little road trip... but not too long to be boring. My girl and I enjoyed every minute of the road home!

I'd like to post a picture or two.. Not sure how. Tips anyone? thanks

I'm going to do a little edit job here to paste in those pictures.
Thanks for the tips and links everyone, and the welcomes. This place is really awesome.

Congrats on the new ride.

I've made that trip before. But I started from South of Houston so I had the drive across TX as well (half the trip is TX). Best thing is there's little traffic other than when you go through Phoenix and Tucson.

Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! Patrick Henry

Where in LA are you? My wife is from Northridge, and we were thinking about a trip down this summer. Definitely hit up C&C in Irvine, and maybe Supercar Sunday in Woodland Hills too.

A ride in the Sol never becomes boring - I guarantee it!!!! In fact, I find that I don't want to stop for anything except to fill the tank.

Nice... now, first things first, lose the buck tooth up front I hope to see you out here as I've never seen a coupe here in SoCal, least not down here in the OC.

The buck tooth is the license plate. I'm in Southern California and in over three years no problems driving around without that ugly front plate.

lol - that was the first thing I thought also - get rid of the front plate (if you can legally do so.)

Ohhhhhhhhhh . . . my bad. I hate the front plate, too. Tennessee doesn't require one, thank goodness!
