For a short while, my dad had us kids driving a green pinto wagon when I was in school (late-70s). Floor it and still not go fast...yehah. :roll: I hope you put the shield in (pathetic explosion remedy) in case of a rear-crash. We didn't have ours long enough to do that.

'79 had the remodeled tank but I still ran it up a very steep little hill in Des Moines and got all 4 wheels off the ground. Yes, teenagers are stupid :lol:

Kewl on the deposit refund!

Saturday lunch at Pierponts after we all get the cars aka sometime later this summer. Furthest drive gets the free plug in the car park.

That sounds like fun. I didn't get my first car until I was 24; it was a green 1999 Hyundai Accent. I have fond memories of that awful little car.

Pierpont's is a stone's throw from my workplace, which is about 8.5 miles from my KC North home. Ericvoll, I believe you're in Gladstone, just north of me, so I'm closer to Union Station - I'll give up the plug. We should host ksnogas2112, since I'm guessing he's the furthest out (and the plug goes to...). If I'm right, ksnogas2112, follow the yellow brick road on over when the time comes...welcome to the plug. :)

BTW, we'll be breaking bread together (bring your SOs?), so call me Kathy. I assume you guys have names (Eric :?: and :?: )....

My delivery date is also now June 4. The day the car was scheduled to be put on the train has slipped a few times, initially it was May 9th, now it's supposed to go on the train on Monday, May 21 with delivery to the dealership "no later than" the 31st. I wonder if Nissan is aggregating the orders for the KC area to make the transport more efficient. Kathy and I might get our orders at the same time.

I'm extremely eager to get the car. I got a very good offer for my current car, so I went ahead and sold it thinking no big deal, I'm an eco friendly guy, I'll just ride the KC Metro. I work downtown, and there is a bus stop about two blocks away from my house in the Northland. Big Mistake!! Not only is it much more inconvenient than I had anticipated, there are a lot of very weird people on the bus, and I've discovered I have a tendency to get motion sickness. The other day, it was particularly hot inside the bus, and one of the patrons thought it would be a good idea to eat a nasty, fast food, fried fish sandwich. The stench of it wafted through the bus, and it took considerable effort on my part not to loose it. I've held out so far, but the thought of just renting a car in the mean time is very tempting.

I keep telling myself. It's coming soon!!! It's coming soon!!!

I looked into the bus option years ago to see if it would save cost, but it would have taken me an hour and a half to get to work from where I used to live rather than 15-20 minutes by car. I decided I'd rather sleep in. In addition, most people taking the bus pretty much do it because they have no other options and some of them can be scary (sorry, not trying to alienate anyone). For the small investment, I think I'd rent another car if I were you. :lol:

No, I don't have my service upgraded or my equipment installed yet because my electrician is pushing me to the back burner, since he's got some big jobs in play. Talked to him a couple days ago and he should be taking care of it in the next week or so, joking that I could use that Walgreens QC if he doesn't get to me right away - har har, smart@ss! Friends. Harrumph! I want to get this over with and make sure the equipment I bought on eBay works (should, NIB, look perfect). Eriicvoll, looks like we might get our cars from the same shipment... Look up my VIN pretty please, from earlier in the thread?
