Happy Groundhog's Day everyone!!! 8)

Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow, so apparently Spring's going to come early.

In celebration, I'm purchasing a 1990 VW Golf today.

The bad bit: It's front wheel drive. The interior could use some work. It needs a radio, too.

The good: It's a little over a ton, seats 5, goes like a bat out of hell, and it has a manual transmission -- that makes it the first of my cars to have one.

This was the message I had waiting for me at home.

After I drove all the way up to Antioch (about an hour).

I called him from my cell phone like 10x. I called him once from my house phone. It wasn't the first ne or the last one and he was too lame to think "Gee -- I didn't get a message. I know he has a cell phone, so maybe I should call that other number..."

He said he thinks he's getting a divorce. Turns out that she didn't want to sell the car for some reason. I don't really know what the deal was, but I'm looking at the bright side. The Golf was a reasonable car, but I was making a few compromises for it.

So -- screw that. I'm on the lookout for a 300ZX. 8)
