Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

glad you're still planning to eventually move to CO2. not my choice of course but, from what you've said in here, you seem to really like CO2 better than TaXes for your kind of lifestyle (not taking the drugs here :mrgreen: ).

Also who names the car colors? Symphony (Hyundai) is not grey, should be brown...
