I never realized the ABS systems on my Scorpio and Saab 900 are the same! I guess it's true when they say you learn something every day!

Oooh, I love birthday parties!!! Are we having a party? I'll bring the booze!

I love the fact you're marking the "birthday" of your car. I thought I was the only one who does that lol! Mine was born 2/1/1989 by the way.

Baby Van Hook makes first YouTube appearance!

Tonight I finished a quick video that features a recording of our baby on the womb and I thought I'd share it with all of you!

Take a look/listen!

Does anyone have a picture of the taupe interior? I've never seen one, and I have to admit this piques my interest quite a bit!
