lolwut?

I actually was a vert for a short time, but I hated it coz I don't like hair gel.

You might not know, but after I cut off my roof, I was driving around for a couple of weeks without it before I welded my Range Rover roof on to get the look and carrying capacity!

If I was envious of your less rigid design, I'd just have kept my old roof off and probably just added a 2x4 for support on top of the rear seat...but I'd have stained it to look like my burled maple trim!

How many engines and wheels you guys got in those things?

I'm very glad to hear 'this' news, but hope having a vert isn't a requirement for annoying you and ruining your forum? I still wonder why we can't get along? "We have special needs and wants." Wawawa.

You're welcome to post here as long as you have some form of product in your hair

hahah I'm still here just as much as before.
Nothing has changed.

The fact that it took me finding a forum that would say yes to a vert section for E46F to start one sorta bums me out, but competition will do that.

I'm glad we have this here, and I can see it growing.

Thanks for your tireless efforts, Gabe.

Thanks to Tim for listening & reacting to the deafening whine coming from Gabe & the rest of us topless thugs.

I don't have any gel on right now, but I'll get some. Recommendations? Looks like Super Glue is popular, huh?

Anyway, I'm glad you're all glad and have your forum here. I'll always remember you well, Gheybe, but I have absolutely no idea why! Take care; remember to write--maybe post a weekly "Vert news" for your friends way across the forum!

Model racist! (Sorry, I didn't mean to write that; it just slipped out! )

And I seriously doubt it's the phone.

You need to ask? Seriously? Wheel Wax of course. Works even if you're bald.

Oh, and I'm a supermodel racist (as in racing after supermodels) so... set the bar higher.

On the straights it might be difficult, but if they're the typical supermodel, then you can get them on the turns when they forget it's not straight anymore. With heels, especially...poor grip in turns!

You're welcome! Find a local supermodel hairpin turn and just stalk it for a bit...they'll just land at your feet!

Wheel wax. Great! Now I'm ashamed. I don't wax my wheels, and the 'ArmorAlling' the treads turned out to not be so good! But, I'll get my hair right for next time!
