PAS: Any Shout-outs?

I'd Like to give Special Thanks to:

My Beautiful wife who has to put up with me and has stuck by my side, oh and also lets me act like a fool spending money on my xB xoxoxo

I'd Like to take the time to also thank GOD, Family and Friends for helping me through some tough times. I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2007. I had Surgery in July of 07 and as of now I'm cancer free. When I say Family and Friends I'm including the Scion Community as well as the many Online Car sites I belong too.

I'd also like to thank PAS for taking an interest in doing a feature on my Scion it seens like it gets no respect from the car schene.

Thanks to everyone again from the bottom of my heart.
