LOL, awesome. It'd probably be like 15000 if it weren't for the HeyTell app on our phones.

On a side not I took the car out yesterday. I haven't driven it in a while and she felt good ... and a little squirrely. The cool temps make it fun!

Bored at work, evo forums are slow this week, I'll come join the fun again on the G8boards.

Knoxville got me to get the heytell app, it's kind of nice but at the same time I don't think I like it, mainly because I have to be somewhere that I can listen to people talk...can't do that at work...forums ftw.

Just parked the G8 in its hibernation place. I am not sure if it's parked for the year, but at least I got the spot all cleaned out and ready.

Just buy a battery tender, then you don't have to worry about charging or forgetting to charge . Plug it in and its all good to go.

Not parked just yet, but that may happen this upcoming weekend. Need to get an O2 sensor replaced on the Silverado first.

It gives me something to do once a month and I already own a battery charger.
Also I've heard of battery tenders on occasion overcharging and ruining batteries.

The Camaro is not parked yet, this will be my first year parking a car for the winter. Lots to do when that time comes. This weekend we go and pick up the wife's new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk edition. Never a dull moment.

And for the TPB fans out there, we got to meet the boys last night as the preview of their movie Swearnet.

It's a new 2013, so no diesel. After I read a bunch of forum stuff regarding failed 8 speed tranny's we decided against a 2014. That and the fact that there were only 2000 Trailhawks made and the deep discounts got us over to the 2013. I'll post a pic or 2 on Saturday once we pick it up.

I think it is easier to post a link. This was a limited edition, only 2000 were made (based on what the engineering team said on a web chat). We are getting a white one.
