    Three years old? Lack of parental control, under the influence of baby milk I'd guess.


    Growing old is compulsory- Growing up is optional

    Chad how's the Vauxhall? Any interior shots? Are the seats comfortable? I imagine the clutch is harder than on the old Mirage?

    The entertaining saga/succession of ItsChad's s#!7box cars continues!

    Welcome back.

    My grandfather was a frugal and successful farmer who worked his way up the General Motors brand ladder through his lifetime, starting with the entry level sedan and finally treated himself to a Cadillac in his 70's. But then after a few years he was stumped: where to go from Cadillac?

    He ended up getting a new 1999 Mercedes E Class. I have no idea if they were any good to own, but I liked driving it. That was his last car.

    His Dad was royally pissed!! My old friend was very hyper-active; we would climb trees a hundred feet up around the same time. No fear. And how I ended up the most Obsessive Compulsive person I've known, I don't know.

    Back in the 80s kids were given more free reign to explore.
