Anyway, I finally brought Steve to meet everyone and I felt like a celebrity surrounded by paparazzi when I drove up. Seriously. As I pull into the parking lot, I see guys start pointing and staring. Before I even parked one of them was at the window, "So you finally brought it!" Someone else walked up saying, "Hey, check out the Eurovan!"
Oh, stop it. You're going to make me blush.
So, of course I popped the hood, proudly answering their inquiries about the type of engine - the 200hp VR6, naturally, and eyebrows went up. "Nice!" "Really, the VR6?" "How many miles on it? Like 170?" Nope. Higher. 290,000. More amazement. "Bet it doesn't get 200 horsepower now!"
About that time, Jeff arrived in his Beetle - grinning from ear to ear at the guys all gathered around his van. I'm pretty sure I won him some points with the guys.
