  • Re: I spotted a NEW (insert make/model) today!

    Never seen a Darden Yard House restaurant. What's there spin on the menu and theme? I find Darden chains to usually be decent moderate priced places.


    It's a beer-centric restaurant... A big rectangular bar in the center (60 ft by 20 ft?) with taps all the way around.. The food seems to be consistent with TGIF, or maybe a step up. Typical prices. We've been there a couple of times and it's good.. but, always crowded, which is why we don't go more.

    Obviously, a great craft beer selection on tap.
    It's so crowded, nobody goes there anymore....

    It's done. Move on.
    It'll never happen. He's still bitching about a mid 90's Neon his parents owned and let's not get started on Rite Aid....

    Premium wheels vs standard wheels:




    I think the standard wheel looks like the one you would pay extra for, and I prefer it also. Ford is really off-base IMO with its wheel options for the Mustang. Many are in black finishes and all of those look awful IMO. Next year they are offering a carbon fiber wheel option also in black.
    Black is what the kids want today..
  • Re: I spotted an (insert obscure car name here) classic car today!

    Spotted a Ford Windstar today. Was in someone's garage but the woman said it was a good runner. She also said that had another one that was a dog and she was upset with her hubby when he traded it on this one a couple of years back. Don't quote me but I think hubby enjoys a stiff snort now and then. ;)

    I think it qualifies as a siting here since it was, in theory anyway, running. Right @fezo?
    Gotcha beat - I drove a Windstar last week. It belongs to my in-laws. 2000 with 130K miles. My FIL babies it and it is in great shape.
