Yep, thats right, I finally broke down and bought one. Cost me $17,660, but I got it! I bought it off of eBaymotors because I couldnt find one around here. On Monday I go out to Arizona to pick her up, so I wont be around for a couple days. Now congratulate me before I kick all of your asses!

They've never been my cup of tea, but I certainly wouldn't turn one down if it was offered to me on a plate. Congrats!
