    :D The 2006 HCH II is here. :D

    The Green Machine Has Landed:

    This is for real. I know it's hard to believe for those of us that go way back on other Sites. Hey what's 6-Months?:rolleyes:

    Gary called me at around 1:30 PM Central today and the car came in very early this morning to them. The tech started putting the accessories on it right then. I spoke with the tech that is doing the work on it and he said everything is moving right along. He had already done some of the things.

    So this coming Saturday, the wife and I will be doing the drive thing to Bowling Green, Ky. to Gary Force Honda and picking up our/my New Toy. :)

    This is for "xcel" I did ask that they put 44 Lbs. of Air in all 4-tires. So that will be done before I pick it up.

    So, xcel, are you getting a little Nervous thinking about driving a real Hybrid to (Hybridfest) ? ;)



    BTW, Can someone out there say "Finally".

    Hi Tiger:

    ___I cannot wait ;)

    ___I hope you can make it out Thursday late so Tom and I have some time with you and Cathy on Friday before we head up to Madison.

    PS: We are taking them to 56 #’s and swapping out the OEM break in Moly goo for some sweet Mobil1 0W-20 when you arrive too ;)

    ___Good Luck

    Chuck just the messenger

    This is sort of like when I flew from Dallas to Houston to pick up a new 1986 CRX HF - only I expect you are dealing with an honest salesman. :)

    I won't be able to do anything Friday. I will be leaving work and picking up the family and driving straight to Madison. I expect to be in the hotel around 10pm or so Friday night.

    Whoo hoo! Glad to here that your hybrid has landed. Now you can go out and prove to yourself the true 0-60mph time. :) Well, o.k. maybe you should wait a while to do that. It's one thing to do it with a rental car, it's another to do it with your own car.

    Enjoy you new baby.

    Yeah, he is a Master Tech. and he said that a 5-Sp. and disk brakes on this were a real XXXX. :rolleyes: I don't know what he meant.:confused:

    So I did not press the issue any further.

    All, time is ticking away, day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, second by second. Hey but who is counting? ;)

    Don't suppose you could ask for (Friday-Off) for a vacation day so we could all like hang out together.???;)

    What do you say?? It's not until July.


    BTW, I wish you could: ;)

    And me and xcel,(xcel-driving) me co-pilot, and tom, will see you at Hybridfest in July. ;)

    Picking xcel up at his home in Chicago. He needs some seat of the pants time in a real Hybrid. :)

    Now your talking big guy. ;) Hey, don't forget your Shovel: :)

    We want have the opportunity to do this again for probably along time so I hope you can make this happen on your part.

    Really be nice for all of us to get to meet each other and then take off to Hybridfest trailing each other.

    The trick will be going back to my house to pick up my wife and kids. So I'll probably have to leave you guys an hour before you leave or be an hour later than you guys getting into madison.

    Sounds like we just drop by your place and all of us leave from there.

    Just a very small detail it seems like.

    Question? If you take off that Friday, you would be home anyway, Right?

    I probably am missing something here. :confused:

    Want be the 1st time or Last time for me Though: :eek: Easy for me to be confused. :)

    We come to you at your house and all of us leave from there. :D

    Now I am on the same Page, Finally.:)

    No- Problem at all, just a little drive for xcel and I to meet up with you.


    As they say here in the South: No-Bigeeeee ;)
