I saw this awesome Q5 going through the mountains. Followed it from Aspen back to Denver. Had Stasis suspension badging, nice wheels, a different looking dual exhaust, and a nice stance. Wouldn't mind one of these myself.

Nice! Before I got the CC I test drove one of these and to be honest it was the only car I tested that I liked. And I really really don't like SUVs. Touareg trade in would make a nice down payment on one. ;)

This morning on I90 I saw a mkiv Jetta wagon. It was matte blue and it looked like the front was matte green. It had a Golf front, lowered with Vapor and Iconic stickers on the rear window. Jake, is that your old wagon?

Yeah that's his wife. She's normally in a MK6 Jetta but they had a spring crack and she took the wagon while he was fixing it.

So she must be the woman that I've seen in a black Jetta with vapor stickers on 90.

Driving to drop my daughter off at daycare today I saw Tim Petty (Jim's nephew) driving his dad's red split window bus. Always good to see that thing on the road!
