While I consider myself more a college freshmen (I'm currently in college), I'm technically graduating from high school in a few months, and tonight I got my parent's graduation present.

For years and years, I've had a love of lowered vehicles. I was blessed with a Red 96 Saturn Coupe, which I was able to buy Enkie (sp?) rims for. It has a sunroof, spoiler, and decent sound system. After an accident which wasn't my fault, I was able to use the extra insurance money to tint it, the next darkest tint to limo-tint, which is illegal (in my state, at least.)

Tonight, I found out they lowered it! Two and a half inches. Overnight it'll settle to it's final level. It's so gorgeous!

I know not everyone likes cars lowered, but I do, and have for years. It's a great graduation present. I wanted to share the news.

Well, from the point of view of a guy who wears shades and a baseball cap indoors, I can see how it's a real treat.

Congrats, Ti - this means you can now drive under other vehicles and avoid accidents altogether, right?

congrats Ti, now write a poem about it, post it with a picture of the car - and a picture of you without the hat and shades.

Are you feeling well?  Do you have a headcold? - that is what I tell my daughters' friends when they come in my house wearing a hat. Then they look at me with a dazed expression and my daughters' lean over and tell them "take your hat off, my dad doesn't allow them on, in the house."

Am I rambling again?  I hate it when that happens....

You gotta love pretty cars!!!

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be

Outlive my love for Thee
