The week before I traded it in, it had burnt 1 litre of oil. Yes, in a week. I felt bad for the people who were following me.

As for us, we're all okay now. As I said in Striker's thread in the E30 section, Bob Jr. ended up in the hospital on the morning of the 24th of December. We went to CHEO's emergency room at 7 AM and by 10:15 AM, he was on the operating table for an emergency appendectomy. There were complications (the appendix had ruptured a bit) and he ended up staying there until the 30th. So we had a "different" Christmas. But it's all good. He's okay now and that's all that matters. The services we got at CHEO were outstanding. Sleeping on those crappy hospital chairs wasn't, though. But they had Speed Channel, so we had good t.v. to pass the time.

Tony, 1 year old already?? Dayum! Enjoy these moments, man. He will grow up fast.

And Adam, what's the new job? If you can say, of course. And what mods are you planning for your car?
Glad to hear you son is alright Al. Must have been really horrible. Especially that close to christmas. Hopefully he is all set to come on the cruises this summer

As for the new job, I'm still working for the same company, but I got a promotion. I am now the Implementation coordinator for our North American division. It's a lot more responsibility, but I am really enjoying it so far, and it should get me out of the traveling aside from an ocational trip here and there. Plus I got a nice new office

I don't have anything too crazy lined up for the car, but I did buy a set of front/rear sway bars that are just waiting to go in, including urethane bushings. I also bought one of EuroStyle's rear valences (same as Sly), that is also waiting to be painted and installed. On top of that, not much else. Although this long winter has me thinking more and more about a possible Turbo setup...but I'm still on the fence about that one, since I really want to keep the reliability of the NA setup....ah decisions decisions.

Just can't wait until the spring cruise.
