You've never truly washed clothes until you've used a front loader...

I wouldn't say it looks entirely new as they claim...
I can't decide between an orange coupe or a silver convertible.

No problems at all. Without wanting to jinx it, the new pump seems to have cured the starting issue completely.

That's good news. Don't know how much snow you had up there, but was the traction good?

Not enough to really tell yet.

It HAS to be better than the MX-5 though, right? I mean, surely even I couldn't have found something worse.

I know Mrs. N. does well in the snow with her Mini... Just a matter of will the extra horses in mine make it any worse I think.

LOL -- I hope so! Mine is buried under a pile of snow today and going nowhere.
