    This does not mean the p5 is going anywhere though!! Still staying with me, just won't be a daily any longer. Bought it July 2009 and retiring July 2019 with 247k (173k done by me). Two drives across the country and countless memories behind the wheel of it.

    Sorry to hear, they were great cars. I still see a yellow one from time to time in my travels around Ottawa. Brings a smile to my face.

    Seeing as how I am always full of crap, I'm totally going to try and fix the p5 once more before I give up on it. Could be as simple as the corrosion on the battery terminal to which I cannot get the negative off. Out comes the dremel to cut the bolt!

    Actually looking at ms3's for the replacement. 1st gen.

    Best of luck getting her road ready Kyle. I think it would be cool if you brought her back as a Field Break edition. Perfect for all of your outdoor adventures.

    the south shall rise again!!!


    Also in typical "me" fashion, I will not be attending LRP this weekend. Since my foot is still in the boot and I am down to 1 crutch rather than 2, it would be best for me to not be at LRP and having to walk all around to various vantage points at the track. Completely forgot about the walking around part . Luckily I am driving the miata now but it isn't preferred due to I cant rest my foot on the dead pedal because of said boot. Another week and Ill be out of it at least!

    I feel your pain! Yes, better to stay home and continue to rest. Then again, those AARP members could let you borrow one of their wheelchairs and push you around. Lol. At least you are back behind the wheel of the Miata.

    Hey Bruce, saw a yellow P5 on the way home tonight and thought of you.

    Can the Patriots stop winning Championships? Bought my son the 5x plate frame for Christmas, then they go and win number 6. Got his updated plate frame today. [emoji16]

    Funny Mark and were just talking about the old P5's today. I see an old rusty yellow one around Ottawa from time to time that brings me a smile.

    BEAUTIFUL! I'll get back to LRP some day, I swears it :P.

    Anywho, I am out of my orthopedic boot now but still using one crutch. I was able to drive miata yesterday and actually do quick shifting in a shoe. Smiles abound!!

    This was my alternative weekend though. Up hammock camping in the national forest with friends. Big thunderstorm was rolling in Saturday around 6:30 so we quickly packed up and went to my VT cabin. Packing up a wet site blows so we avoided that!



    Home for the night


    Where we kept cool during the hot hot Saturday. Only hit about 80 though in the forest and that water was chilllllly!
