Forgive me if this post is a little unreadable, but I just got home. I worked all night last night, and when I got off of work, drove to my dealer to pick up my GTO :D Had to do the insurance thing, then the bank loan thing, then drive it back up here. So I have had the car for about 5 hours now. :bubbrub Had 15 miles on it when I went for the gas fillup, and now it has 148 miles on it. OH man did I dread turning 30 last year. This car made me love it!!!!!! First impressions that I have is that SOMEONE, anyone needs to come up with a dead pedal for this thing, I did not know where to put my foot. I also hope that the exaust note does get louder after the initial break in.

Good news is that the insurance was even lower than originally predicted. 547 per 6 months. I was quoted 650something. Oh my goodness, I have my car, I have my car. :bubbrub And I LOVE it. I had better try to get some sleep sometime soon, by my count I have been up for 20 hours now, and have to work in 6 hours. But tomorrow morning, when I get off of work, I can drive some more. :D :D

Well it can't really hang with the yellow Astre in the background, but it's nice enough I guess!! Congratulations. I also believe as Tails has reported that the exhaust does seem to "pipe up" after a few hundred miles.

Thanks everyone. It was a pretty good birthday, well except for leaving my 20's behind me. Funny, but even with only about 4 hours sleep, it was pretty easy to get out of bed tonight and I got ready for work in record time. :) I had to take the "long way" to work, just for kicks. One thing is for sure, those headlights need to be adjusted, and SOON. Oh, and thanks to whomever gave the heads up on turning on the AC in order for the defroster to work. Now I need to dig into the manual again and figure out all the little DIC goodies. Oh yeah, and I should probably do some work tonight, huh?

My lil' sis turns 32 today- same birthday! Happy b-day to you. After 30 you stop keeping track until you hit 35, then everything goes to hell after that. ;)

Alternately, once you have kids you forget about your own birthday and focus on theirs! My little boy is turning 1 next week. :)
