    Welcome. Nice rig (and house), I bought my '99 from a guy in St. Petersburg back in October 2002. He said he was selling it to get an H2, I wonder if he still has it. Anyway, despite some rhetoric you will hear about how the 100's can't wheel, you WILL learn a tremendous amount from this board.

    Welcome, as far as your question, there is a headlight faq posted in the 100 series faq section at the top of all of the posts. It will cover what your options are with headlight upgrading. I chose the John Deere Upgrade and really like the difference. I only did the low beams as I feel the stock high beams are just fine-and I live where there are 0 street lights.

    Well, I'll be heading out of the port on a little cruise and I will be visiting the Florida Aquarium while down there. Where are some good spots to go out to eat?

    The 911 is stock, but is a gray market euro spec car that was brought in through Florida by it's original owner so it's got some extra ponies and zero emissions equip. Currently it's patiently awaiting a high compression rebuild. ;)

    Here's the car at about 120mph coming out of turn 4 at Texas World Speedway.

    Haha well depending on what kinda food and prices you're looking at.

    Right next to the aquarium you have this place called Channelside. (its a small version of coconut grove in miami, aka a "hang out place" ) There are a few good restaurants in there, banana joes, margarita mama's, splits ville (gameworks type of place (arcades + bowling) and also a hooters. Those are moderarely priced restaurants $$.

    Beautiful car. Always been a fan of those.

    Haha, I've seen ads of DeSotos. I need to find a calendar that has some pictures


    J Burns? Where was it located? Did you mean J alexander's or Bern's steak house?

    Bern's steakhouse is still there. And Yes best steak in town (we have a lot of new restaurants, Ruth Chris', Flemings, J Alexanders) All have excellent food/service.
