Well if you'd stop gnawing the faces off of homeless people, maybe you'd be able to keep up.

HLL and I were married in Corolla. I've stayed there a few times, and stayed in Carova once. I love the OBX, just wish it didn't take quite so long to get there. Even so, we're thinking of going back next summer. Carova was cool! Where do you guys typically stay?

Yes, what I meant to say was that we were married IN a Corolla. Tight quarters, but we threw the officiant and witnesses in the back seat, and called it good. Venue rental was obviously inexpensive, and we had an excuse to limit the guest list. Win win!

Then you bought a Carova, but ended up trading it in on an OB-X. Got it!

Stiff rod punching holes, but the engine is fine.

Brakes are probably blown

The tires don't lay rubber
but you don't need rubbers

You ever change the water pump gasket on a 1997 TACOma?

I did once change my engine in my '89 Corolla, with help of course. That was not fun.

Are Corollas designed to be slow? Did Toyota install an anti-gravity device that requires the driver to maintain a 10 car gap from the vehicle in front of it? WTF is wrong with these drivers? Do they get labotomized upon receipt of registration?

One of our employees had their fairly new GMC Sierra stolen yesterday, at the office, in the middle of the day....
Too far from our security cameras to get much useful, but they were in/out in 8 minutes.

Seems something you hear less about, with newer cars, you'd definitely think they'd be much harder to steal, apart from the instances you see where they clone the key signal for keyless start. Not sure if the Sierra is keyed or push-button on his.

Awesome. Did you get married on the beach? We are working out the details for our wedding but somewhere in the OBX is a real contender. Being so close I've been everywhere form Hatteras up. It's so laid back down there I just love it. We typically stay around Nags Head.

Nags Head is much safer than Nags Hoof.

I'm sure in ten years they'll be underwater, so I better visit sooner rather than later.

We did. Rented a kick ass house (here), had the ceremony on the beach, and a little party afterward. We only invited immediate family and one friend + their date each, so we all were able to stay at the house. The guests were only there for 3 days, and we had it to ourselves the rest of the week, so we didn't all get sick of each other. It was very simple.

Nags Head is nice because you can actually go out to restaurants if you don't feel like cooking! Carova was interesting. You can order pizza from one restaurant, and they'll meet you back over the dune.
