I was the tall white guy in brown/black plaid shirt that gave you the evil eye! Knew I should have said hi! That chick your GF? Good woman if she goes to the JY with you...

The best wife ever was the one I saw one day in July holding a golf umbrella over her husband while he worked in the car. I think it was like 102 that day. I remember I was dragging around a hood from some ricer to give me shade.

cool cool...i slightly remember seeing you there...that's my wife *just married about 9 months ago*

slightly off topic here but have you noticed that someone is pulling all the w123 motors from all the PAP's around? Unless they have been in a fire, the motor is gone in less than 5 days from showing up at any PAP...it's making getting parts from there extremely difficult.

There's a nice Guatemalan guy in the PnP near me who pulls 240Ds and manual transmissions and puts them in Toyota Hilux/Tacomas.

That is VERY intersting to say the least. Last month I called our local "Bimmers and Benzs" JY to ask about W123 wagon parts. Their response..."No 123s right now. Some guy from Egypt came in and bought them all, then shipped them over there." They usually have 12-15 W123s in stock.
