Look what I found down the street!!


Recommended Posts

Last weekend I was driving home and noticed a 240Z on a trailer going into my subdivision, so I decided to follow and find out who this guy is. We did not have time to talk but we exchanged names and I planned to get back to see him next week. Well today (3/13/03) I dropped by after work and follow this Link to get more photos and the story.

Hi Royce

Send me your contact info in a PM and will give you a call. I can go over anytime because this guy is about 20 homes down the street and around the corner.
