Mid-life crisis ... that's not very nice Rip. Did you pull on her hair too when you two were growing up?

hey, SHE'S the one that said it, not me! Everyone knows my mid-life crisis time has not come yet! (Hmmmm, Corvette or Cobra???)

We have some VERY interesting stories of growing up, including when my two older sisters dressed me in a pink Tutu at age 2 (they have pics too )

Forget the Z3 pics. We want the tutu pics.

No wonder you're so messed up.

Does Ripsnort's sister have a name/handle?

Welcome, Sister of Ripsnort, and congratulations on your new ride.

BTW, it's no crisis, just time to have some fun! I got mine once there was less need for 'practical' cars like vans etc, and some money in the stock market (early 2000). Have a great time.

Congratualtions! You will have a blast. Come to a few of Marty's drives to meet the other Z3ers!

Rip! Color? Engine size?

Hehe! I'll let her tell you...I think she said "Dark metallic blue with a tan top" for color, forgot to ask what engine size

I'll send her this thread now, hopefully she'll start an account and reply to y'all. Might be a few days though, she flies all over the world and I'm not sure of her current schedule....

We've seen Z3s before, but we haven't seen a young Rip sporting a pink outfit.

Luckily, its still on VCR tape (transferred from 8mm) so unless she does some freeze framing hooked up to a computer, you won't be seeing anything soon (TG!)

Montreal? That's one of my favorite Z3 colors... they never shoulda discontinued it.

Talking Thanks for the Wishes!!

Enjoying my new/ used 1998 - Z3. Rides in the country, with the 'top' down and hair blowing in the breeze! Love the car, love the ride and love the idea of finally owning the roadster of my dreams. Pictures to follow - as Buster loves the car too....although he cannot go on roadtrips with us. Thanks for the B.D. wishes....this getting old stuff ... is turning out to be OK.
