1997 VW Jetta TDI, black, 5-speed, and will probably reach 200,000 km tomorrow. It was purchased exactly 6 years ago this week or next (forget the exact date). It deserves a full body wax and interior shampoo for giving such a good ownership experience so far.  Smile

I think today it was a late model New Flyer 35' Low Floor and this afternoon a brand new 35' Gillig Phantom.

I also have a bike I never ride.

Hopefully I will get a full-time job in time for my graduation in December... looking at a 03 Mazda PR5, 04 Mazda 3, or maybe a new Focus ZTS or ZX5 with the 2.3litre engine.
