Re: Austin, TX sightings

Just saw a black Aero with a Yakima rack parked at The Domain.  I parked next to it and took a picture for posterity.

Re: Austin, TX sightings

I parked next to a black Aero with drilled rotors in the Riverside Drive Hooter's parking lot. It was still there when I returned from an AdFed luncheon at Threadgill's. I suspect it belongs to someone working nearby.

Re: Austin, TX sightings

Oh, okay. Well I've been here for 6 years now, but thanks for the welcome! I've only this year acquired my  92x, so that's why I'm trying to associate members with their daily routes and automobiles. See you around?

Re: Austin, TX sightings

I keep seeing that (presumably) same red 92x Aero on 2222 or 620 depending on the time of day. I waved at you today. Are you on this forum?

Re: Austin, TX sightings

I've never seen another Red Aero in person.  May need to drive down again soon so it would be cool to spot it.  If nothing else, at least for some Hula Hut!  up

Did see a red linear once, but the back hatch was littered with nothing but political stickers.   facepalm

Re: Austin, TX sightings

Political stickers in Austin, TX???  Weird.  The people down here feel the need to post their entire belief system on their vehicles in sticker form.  Food, babies, politics, religion, etc...

I just keep seeing that same Red Aero and I'm not even sure they are on this forum.

Re: Austin, TX sightings

Red Linear headed north on 360 on 8/27. I passed you in my Guards Red Cayman and waved.

I was on my way to Lime Creek Road. If you haven't driven it yet, DO SO.

Re: Austin, TX sightings

8-29-11.  8:46am.  Arctic Silver Linear.  Southbound at Grover & 2222 (koenig).  I was right behind you at the light in my Silver Linear.  I waved, but I don't think you saw me or even noticed we had the same car.  Oh, it was a lady driver.

Re: Austin, TX sightings

9-7-11. 4:30pm. MO-Pac Northbound @ Westover Exit.  Black Linear.  No Tint.  WHITE specialized road bike on a trunk mount bike rack.  You were carrying 2 passengers plus yourself.  I looked over as i was right next to you (staring at you) and you didn't seem to notice we were driving similar (same) cars. We were going about 5-10mph at the time in stop and go traffic.

Yeah, Lime Creek Rd. is fun in a car that handles well.  Good call.  up 

Only drawback is the idiot road bikers who think that is a good road to ride on.  Blind corners + bicycles going 10mph in a 35-40mph zone = then you die.

Re: Austin, TX sightings

Just now! 9-14-11, 7:19pm, Silver Linear with roof bike rack. You were turning left onto Balcones from 2222. I waved like a crazy person because our cars are twins...but you didn't reciprocate. Probably didn't see me. Nice looking wagon  wink
