I wish I could hide mine but reception is so poor through adobe walls that wifi can basically only go through two walls tops and thus the position it lies. Did I ever mention the Stealth was much better looking than the 3000GT?
The '60 Cadillac always seemed to me to be better looking than the '59 but it is the '59 that gets all the attention. I want a '30's phaeton Packard or Cadillac bad. Buick will do.

So are you going to Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale? I am trying to figure out this Consumer Electronics show Barrett Jackson deal [with the Adult Entertainment Expo mixed in]

Two things its very easy to make your wifi work much better like I did just use basic cable tv cable to extend to reach of the antena. what I did since I like to use my lap top in back yard was use an splitter and purchased another antena to put outside on the back wall of the house and I mounted one up in the ceiling upstairs along with an 3rd one in the ceiling downstairs. it works very well.

and a 30's phaeton Packard? mine's for sale its a 31 and currently have 3 offers on it damn it if someone would tell me how to post pictures here I would!

I could spend the afternoon at the auction Sat the 19th, and I'd probably have my daughter in tow. Driven past it many times, but never stopped in -- I hear it's a great time.

Cool, let me see if I can squeeze Barrett in and a couple of other things out. Sounds like the best deal. Fly into Vegas and out of Phoenix.
