    Aren't you missing something from the usual minivan buyer profile, TWD? Like the wife and pack of screaming kids?

    Yes, I guess I am... :P
    I think I got it because I'm on the dealer's mailing list. They send these things out to everyone on that list, regardless of marital or parental status.
    So I guess you could say I'm the target of a mass mailing!

    Sorry to hear you might have to sell your VW, canuck. Why the 11-year wait before your car can be insured up there, anyway? I've never heard of such a rule before.
    It's because VW was too cheap to send in safety paperwork to Canada, or make the R32 compliant with Canadian safety regulations, for that matter. It's not just a matter of changing the bumper. The R32 was never sold in Canada so VW didn't bother.

    U.S. cars that don't meet Canadian safety regulations can be insured in Canada, however, after 15 years. So that's another 11 years for the R32. Until then, the R32 is completely inadmissible.
    Why is everyone who drives slower than me an idiot, and everyone who drives faster a maniac?

    Let's invade and take the place over. Then they'll have to let your VW in. :P

    I'll look into this when I'm up there next week.

    Send a memo to Drakken...he owes us a favor anyway.

    All Drakken would need to do is get a Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup. I'd line up behind him all the way until the start of next season. :P

    Yeah, but who'd want to play on any sports team with Drakken as its head coach/manager? :P

    If Shego's involved, he'd attract players no problem.

    True..................I can see it now. The team would be based in..........Whitehorse, Yukon.............................Well of course Drakken would want it to be as remote as possible, so he can continue his plans of world domination as undisturbed as possible. As to name of the club?.................................................Yep. It has to be the "Green Magic".

    Shego: I am not a mascot!
    Drakken: But Shego! The costume looks great! The players all love it! it would inspire them to win! Then I could use the money from the championship to take over the world!
    Shego: I wore more than that at the spa in Greece!.....in the sauna! And it's cold on that ice!
    Drakken: But's that's why you use your powers! To keep warm and to...er....you know.....complete the costume?...............
    Shego: DRAKKEN!!!!!!!
    Drakken (ducking): Uh.....Don't you think you can use your powers to keep the players in line?.......uh...motivated?......too?............. .sort of like you did with my cousin?....................

    ................... (Kaboom) ...........................

    EDIT: Yeah, I know, I'm off topic..... sorry....But I do have a soft spot for Shelby GT Mustangs, circa 1969
