    Wow, looks like you guys had perfect weather!
    eBay selling at it's best I can tell you stock Delorians and quite a bit of slugs so the Turbo is a super nice up-grade.

    It's been unusually warm so far this winter. The animals and plants think it's Spring already -- I had to wipe a bunch of oak pollen off of my car before I hit the road. Yesterday it got up to about 80 degrees -- just warm enough to be uncomfortable in the sun and start sweating while adjusting torsion bars.

    There's a place to get Cheerwine in glass bottles across Lake Ponchartrain from where I live. It's a bit far to travel, especially considering that it's $1 a bottle there and back in Charlotte I can get a two-liter bottle for less than twice that with my Harris-Teeter "Very Important Customer" card. Yeah, it's a plastic bottle, but I pour it over ice in a glass and it tastes good to me.

    Absolutely, I purchase it by the case in glass bottles. That's b/c it is made with pure sugar cane in the glass and not HFCS like the plastic bottles. Just isn't the same it plastic, but packaged in plastic is better than nothing. It tastes really good from a soad fountain too, but I have a feeling that is totally unavailable in GA and LA.

    Wow, good to know! I will have to pick up a few the next time we're at the Cracker Barrel in Slidell.

    There's a local Lebanese restaurant here which sells "Mexican Coke," Coca-Cola in glass bottles made with sugar instead of HFCS. You can get it there year-round. Or you can go to the Kosher Cajun around Passover time and get "Kosher for Passover Coke," which is made with cane sugar since you can't eat corn during Passover if you're keeping kosher.

    Maybe we could make Cheerwine the official beverage of Delorean gatherings!
