Hey Pete, I am with you on this, I live in Rhode Island, not quite as much snow and cold as New Hampshire (It is snowing as I write this) . But still the crappy roads and shortened season. Luckily my coupe has a decent heater and the better roads in Massachusetts and Connecticut are nearby. The one asset Rhody does have is no inspection on cars with antique plates, which I might add only cost $16.50 for two years. And the cold weather gives us a chance to get to things we might neglect in season. Just so long as I don't burn the garage down! (see the safety first thread) And quite seriously my condolences to any body who was affected by the recent problems out there in California. The thought of a wall of fire scares the be Jesus out of me. At least we can bundle up for the cold and shovel the snow but what can you do when mother nature wreaks havoc like that ! No offense to anyone, everything is a tradeoff, but I think I'll stay in New England thanks



" Enjoy the Drive", Jim

In reply to # 1510366 by bowen6951 You Guys have no idea what it's like living in California. Bullet trains to nowhere (that no one will ride), water tunnels under the Delta (to save a minnow) and $15 an hour to work at McD's. But I wouldn't live anywhere else. No snow, hurricanes, tornadoes and generally floods.

Rob:

And I would add to that list, "no fun". Just kidding.

Hence the name "The people's republic of California". <tee-hee>

Oregon is much the same way. "There is no problem too small for a state law" is the state's creed.

Somebody remind me; What was this thread originally about?

The last few comments are fun to read but very far from teh original topic.

I wonder if Michel bought the 1982 TR7 convertible 6 cyl manual transmission?
