    Any peeps sell their cars in VA? I know you're supposed to keep the plates, but how can the seller drive off without plates on the car?

    FWIW- basically selling my civic to my sister-in-law for the price of repairs. She lives in NJ.

    Hmmm.... dunno. Since it's your sister-in-law though just let her keep the plates until she gets new ones, then have her send the old plates back to you.

    Step 3 - Profit.

    She coudl register the car and have the temporary reg and use those I think.

    But If you trust her just do what JRK says and have her send them back in mail or somehting.

    My grandfather said when he was in WW2 he got assinged to cook for the Platoon one night. He said he had never cooked before and the SGT told him to just season it until it tasted good enough.

    He said the people were saying it was the best meal they ever had and they were going to make him permanent cook. Then they asked him where all the butter went. He used all of the butter rations making the food. But he said they guys said it was totally worth it. I think that was after the Battle of the Bulge so they probably didnt care about not having butter.

    Nobody is writing me about the 3 blxpros I put up for sale. Guess its not high season for sellers. Oh well...I will just wait then. Ive been watching video of me practicing with Auzzie and on 1 point with the Ig Speed, I hit a good serve then crush a backhand in the corner, and for the only time in my life I instantly react and know ill get a shortball and I am at the net to slam an overhead! It's such a beautiful point. Unfortunately the video is an hour long and this good part is only 15 seconds! But still...he got pwnzered on that one! Wooooooo

    Maybe zapvor will bump it again... No toe pics please!

    You just have to find a way to edit thos ethree good shots into a 8 minute highlight video. Then you would be like 6.0 and get mad scholarships and stuff.

    I don't need a racket to tell me my serves max out at 99mph... I have Sup for that.

    Combine these rackets with the article talking about automated drones killing people and we basically have Skynet.

    they may as well call them big brother racquets.

    btw, has anyone try to play with a Pacific racquet before? I want to try their XFast Pro 100. Specs show alot of promise.

    That's kind of cool. These sensors plus video analysis of your strokes could be a decent tool for rec players. Could see if your tweaks to your game really have any effect.

    I'm thinking about getting a new jeep as my daily driver. Possibly tomorrow.

    So my question is...

    2dr or 4dr? I plan on doing suspension and other modifications. 4x4 will be put to use. Rubicon !

    What color? Www.jeep.com

    They have some funky colors

    did u sell the maroon one?

    and unless you have a big dog or a kid, i'd get 2 doors.
    black, gecko, or crush
    and if 30k doesn't seem nuts for a 2 door jeep, sure get a rubicon!
    too much for my pocket. i'd just get a pickup truck and a Yamaha YZ250F
    wooooo wooooo
