Good work
I'm jealous though

What's your usual mileage ?

Hey Glider. I'm just a bit north of you and work with a guy from Greenfield. Might want to look around on here for a bit before jumping on the VG( Vortex Generator) bandwagon. There are some REALLY good Aero guys on here, and they don't seem very fond of them. If you are cruising up 91 and see a blue VW Jetta with smooth hubcaps and rear wheel skirts, give me a beep as you pass by.
