new! austin texas!

hello everyone! im fresh to the site and literally got my 2009 white solstice 2 days ago...loving that beautiful machine.. im kicking myself in the ass for not picking one up sooner, but wow am i extremely proud and happy with my purchase... she is a head turner every where i go!!

i graduated from a 2001 v6 eclipse.. i did like that car but it had too many problems sadly...and no where near as sexy as this solstice

none the less just wanted to say my hello and introduce myself.. i go by Queso.. my bboy name.. i teach and perform breakdance as my second career, but my first career is dedicated to the austin police department emergency communications department

happy to be registered to this community im positive you all have amazing fruitful knowledge to share with a nooby

Welcome to the world of "permagrin"....

Permagrin (per mah grin) - An incureable disease that Kappa owners have. A permanent smile develops on their face the moment they take delivery of their Kappa. This smile only grows with every compliment, nod, and thumbs up from complete strangers regarding their Kappa. It is cureable, but only with the loss of their Kappa. Most people experiencing this condition don’t wish to be cured

We got folks down there. They pop in and out. 2 big Hill Country Runs are the Xmas Light Tour in Dec & the Kerrville/3 Sisters Run in Feb.

We also have a run in Arkansas coming up in October. Your email should on it's way shortly.

I got money that the "Simple" in "Simple Mods" kinda goes away about 1/2 way through your 1st Kville Run...
