the best $2500 mod ever

I was going to put some mods in my box for Christmas but I decided to put the modification into my calendar instead
went to disneyland (the best Holiday parade and fireworks ever) and Universal studios and after that meet up friends from New Mexico and North Carolina in SoCal...what a weekend.
Just want to share some pix:
w/ Shrek, the all time favorite


bought Sally (from monster inc.) beanie to use when i go snowboarding


and of course my princess (she knows it too but borderline spoiled brat..hehehe)

Hi,

Your trip sounds cool. I haven't been to DisneyLand since 1963, I bet it's changed some...

It's always good to get together with Good friends, especially around the Holidays. Proves that there's more to life than just cars... did I say that?...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
