    My wife and I watched this vid today on YouTube, she asked me why someone would drive 6 hours one way to buy a car... I chose to ignore the question and continue watching that road trip. Needless to say, I'm very jealous! That's a hell of a find!

    I've been watching your videos on Youtube for years. Many thanks for the great content!
    I am glad that you now have a 2G Talon. Hope the 1G will stay with you.

    In your to-do list, "34 Outlander Big Brakes" and "41 Outlander Big Brakes Upgrade" are doubled.

    Keep us posted on how the little bug's progress is.
