Congrats! But I have to ask you, where are the snow tires? If you're rolling on F1's then you're going to have you hands full this winter.

Do you have any suggestions for snow tires?

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Just a heads up, the f1's have an ambient temperature they aren't supposed to be driven under as they get hard and lose traction. It's not just that they can't be driven in snow. BigGeo where in NJ are you from? Do you go to five points at galloping hill on Monday nights to the car shows?

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

Awesome looking car! Congrats! I love the DWB with white stripes! I hate it when the dealer installs the front license plate though.

Hello Yellow Jacket,

I live in Rockaway, Morris county, but I'm not familiar with the five points at galloping hill car show. Please send me the details.

Thanks,
George

Guys,

Please note:
In another thread someone posted a Pep Boys coupon link for 5 qt Mobile 1 + oil filter for $30. That's an excellent value, great job and thanks for sharing to whoever that was. I've reposted the link below since in can't find the original thread. I hope I'm not breaking any forum protocol. Offer expires 12/31/12.
Online Printable Coupon - $29.99 Mobil 1 Do-It-Yourself Synthetic Oil Change with Mobil 1 Oil Filter | Pep Boys

I just bought 20 qts of 0W-40 + 4 filters for $128 including tax

Bro I agree with you 100%. I'll be buying my 392 this spring and although it will be my "second car" it won't spend it's life in my garage as If its a piece of exotic art work. It's a car and it will be driven-hard at times.
