    just googled something, and my post from 2005 came up...

    Where does the time go...?

    I have had my testarossa for 14 years, racked up a whopping 6000 miles...

    Just changed the tires today...14 Year’s old... look like new, hard as hockey pucks...

    Spent the last 2 leisurely years doing the major...

    Drove it for the first time this year...runs great...

    The years sneak up on you, don’t they?

    It's still partly your fault I've been here nearly 16 years [since July 20, 2003]. ;)

    I was just thinking about this a couple weeks ago. I had my QV at Barbers and someone mentioned my interior looked great and I said I had it redone not long ago (I always keep seat covers on unless I am "showing" it).

    Then I got to thinking about it. It's an 84 and I bought it in 97. I had the interior redone 4 years after that - in 2001.

    2001 was 18 years ago. Not only that, this "new" interior is a year OLDER now than the original one was THEN, when I thought IT was old....

    So, yeah, time disappears in a blink of an eye.
