Mine was great, went to a bar with friends for a concert and costume contest. Brian and James went as ZZ Top, Evan went as Indiana Jones, Ruthie went as a Bavarian Garden Bier Girl, and I went as Dwight from the Office.

This is all of us in Brian's Fleetwood.

There is quite a noticeable lack of facial hair for whomever is supposed to be ZZ Top.

Oh yeah, we are gonna need more pics of the beer girl to verify the authenticity of her costume.

I'm sure Brian (90Brougham350), the one without the beard MASK, will be more than happy to post pictures of Ruthie, HIS WIFE, if he so sees fit.

Went and ate some fajita nachos and drank margaritas while watching the nutbags come in and out of the restaurant for a few hours. :)

I had to work. It was an easy night though. We were allowed to dress up at work and I went as a Target employee because I still had my old name badge. The store manager just looked at me and started laughing (I work at Wal-Mart BTW).

Good Trick or Treats.......went through a local neighborhood with a couple of neighbors and grandkids.......had a double Old Fashioned glass, every third house stuck it in the door, enough bourbon to float an old diesel boat. Next morning could hear my hair growing.

Wow Dope, you definitely put the most effort into you costume, but I suppose that's expected. Halloween must be like x-mas and your birthday rolled into one.

Mmmmm that's true..... I'm actually looking for a comic con or something as an excuse to wear it again. Hahahha....

Took the wife and kids on a cruise to Mexico for Halloween. Had a great time and there was plenty "trick or treating" on the ship as well as a Halloween party for the kids. Doing it again next year!. :cool2:

Since the car came with the premium audio system, the *whole* thing had to be rewired.. power wires, signal wires and speaker wires... over 15hrs of work in total. The XM is wired up and, once I get the iPod control box, that'll run into the glove box so the ipod sits in there (and stays charged) while everything is controlled via headunit. The 3rd switch above the radio (very left) is for the power antenna, since the radio was leaving the antenna up anytime it was on, not just tuner (like my old Alpine) so I wired it to the (spare fog light "blank") switch so I can make it go up or down, since it's wired into switched power, if the ignition is turned off and switch is still on, the antenna will go down, then back up when car is turned back on.

Very happy with the install, sounds so much better (using stock premium sound speakers, which are actually pretty darn good now) and the XM/aux/ipod is great. The Pionner DEH-P7800MP is 2yrs old and I got it for $80, has a remote too but the thing just sits in the perfect spot (E30 interior is awesome for ergonomics) It has a redish-range color to match the BMW backlights... but I do like the blue... ah welll... I could always change it...

Finished product:

^^^ I laughed my ass off at your high-tech lighting unit for the job, lol.

Mine was pretty cool. Not much happened, but basically, after the kids stopped coming, my Dad and I talked half the night about a lot of stuff. And I rented the entire Psycho collection. I have an unnatural thing for those movies...
