    I give up!
    Andreas asked me a few days ago to close "Summer" and trying to "delay" the cold and wet I didn't.
    Summer is over.....

    This is Chicago, and September is the best month for Northern California type weather here(wich sometimes includes rain and fog). Wait till mid week and we will be all good again.

    As seasons are astronomically defined by an equinox or a solstice, I will never understand why they are constantly changed on this board. At least this closing was the closest yet to an actual end of the season.

    Ok, so my first "fall" post may not be exotic, but I sure found it funny (Badges - chime in here). For the last week or so they have been moving an empty squad around my neighborhood to try to reduce the number of people that roll through the stop signs.

    When I was out for a bike ride I noticed that someone has placed a Grateful Dead sticker on the back of the empty car.

    When Fall is official I won't have access to a computer so to avoid complaints later that the thread is not updated I had to do it today.

    Like SS for Conti,some 911s are also worth spotting.
    RS models in particular raise my heart beat a little.
    A gorgeous 911TT S Cab on Rt 41 yesterday.....

    Lotus Evora S in my neighborhood? (Alpine rd. & Riverside blvd.) White - and engine note sounds sweet! :) Wonder if there is a Black Mondial traded @ FVMC or LFSC... :(
