Ours is a 3.3 V6, it has some pick up (after I replaced the heads) but I will be getting rid of it as soon as I think I am done with renovating our house. For now, it great getting lumber and taking out debris.

We did that with my boys until we managed to get them in schools out of zone that were ok. At least i am home a lot and we do a lot of work together. I strongly believe that parent child contact hours are important for their development but they also need social settings or they could become weird.
For fun they get to play with me in the garage putting cars together

There's something off about those homeschooled lads. Remember Arthur from "Six Feet Under" (brilliant role btw)?



In my house, she gets to paint the walls with me for fun. Next year, I'm thinking about letting her get a go at Venetian Plaster.

Caravan...OK, it runs. When I need to pick up some stuff from the Home Depot, I don't have to use my Benz..That's the best I can say.

I have a 1997 VW GTI VR6. 165,000 and counting. It's my toy much more than the Mercedes. The Mercedes is just my daily driver for while I have the VW apart (or broken down).
