Saw a TI on the San Francisco bay bridge westbound on Friday morning (August 28th). It had a Stanford license plate holder. Its the first MSM I've seen that wasn't at a dealership or where I didn't already know the owner.

I have seen a total of 3 in 6 years in the boston metro area, and 1 of the 3 was a the local autox. One other was parked and the last one was on he highway with me one morning and as he left on the off ramp I looked over and the drivers side rear wheel well was all rotted out! Sad

Geez, I'm on the North Shore. Two weeks ago today, on my way to the bank to get the check to pick up my VR the next day, I saw a Ti in Marblehead. On my way home from the gym in Swampscott yesterday, I saw another VR in a parking lot. If it's there again tomorrow, I may stop and leave a note.

And then there's my sister, who bought a Ti in June, she lives in NE Jersey. I haven't seen it yet. We need a family MSM meetup! I sent her a photo of an immaculate BRG MGB I saw on Memorial Day, just like the red one she had 30+ years ago and we started talking about sports cars. Said she wanted an S2000. I told her to go look at the MSM Ti GT I saw on Craig's List near her. She drove it and bought it the next day. I wasn't ready to pull the trigger on that one. 10,000 more miles and $1000 less than my VR. I wanted Ti, until I saw VR in person.

There is another TI here in my small town, friends with him on facebook. He is supposed to get me to do his timing belt when it hits 60k. I laughed a bit when he said his car was higher mileage at 47k. I was like, mine has 180k on you.

Sad thing is, mine looks better. His has a few more dings, and a big ass dent in the rear right right where the bumper and quarter meet.

Also saw a VRM going through town once, haven't seen it since.
