Very nice Matt.

Maybe people won't confuse us now since I'll never drive an 80.

Matt, you might want to hold on to the tools I loaned you and tackle the front and rear axle service on the new to you 80 - If the PO was lax in maintenance chances are they've never been touched

Congrats on the new latte machine

you moved up to a 40... it'll only be a matter of time before you're in an 80 seat

Famous last words - Never is a VERY long time Martin...Some day when you bring the wife and kiddo (maybe kiddos one day) wheeling you'll see that an 80 really isn't all that bad

Truth is I was trying last year to get Michele to sell her Honda Pilot and buy a built 80.

That's exactly the reason I bought an 80 first. I would so love to have a nice 40, but the reality of 3 kids and a wife adventures dictated the wagon first.

I don't have anything against 80's. They're just not my style. Plus I'm poor, and my 40 and 60 combined cost a lot less than just the mods on the typical built 80 in this club.

i've never understood the 80 haters. It has great viewing like 60's do. mods cost a fortune less than anything with leaf springs. it's got straight 6, solid axles, heater under the passenger seat and when you drive one you definitely feel the lineage to the 40.

only 4,579 to go...
