I decided about 2 nights ago that I was going to put the vinyl on my car. I called up a close friend in Jersey and had him overnight me the banner.

Before people rant:

1. Yes, I centered it on the S and not the O...sorry.
2. No, I did not have him make up World Series Champions yet...I don't want to jinx anything.
3. Yes, there is a (.) missing after Trying...not sure who messed up, but it's no biggie.

Anyway, I'll be driving this car from MI -> OH -> IN -> IL -> IN -> IL -> IN -> OH -> MI so if you see me, honk twice and I'll know it's a fellow board member. If you see my car and want to post, that would be great too.

It's not often we get to brag about our team...I just plan to enjoy it this year.

Go Sox!

Erik

I''l keep an eye out, I'm working in Jackson, MI and I drive a lot. Also, I'm assuming you go to State. I go up there quite a bit, so keep an ear out for the double-honk when you're around Lansing as well. Oh yeah, SWEET car and vinyl.

Also, just curious, how do you get from OH to IL without going thru IN?? Your car must be really sweet!!

That is awesome!! I wish I didn't have a soft top Wrangler now so I could do that.

Thanks everyone.

I have a lot of pics of my cars on my site:

www.erikcohen.com (http://www.erikcohen.com/)

2003 Mercedes C230 Coupe
1998 Mercedes SLK
1996 Nissan Maxima (Nitrous)

Those are the three worth looking at. The last two should be in the 'Past' section as I sold them before moving to Michigan.

Aprillshowers - Very little performance wise...factory short throw shifter and more free flowing exhaust. I do have a 6.5" Touch Screen DVD/Navi, Ipod, XM Radio, 6 CD-Changer...and BOSE. My Maxima was heavily mod'd...I just didn't want to go too far with this one as I lost a ton of money on the Max because Mod's don't pay.

VivaOzzie - Woops...yeah I guess:

MI -> OH -> IN -> IL -> IN -> IL -> IN -> OH -> MI

We are staying at a hotel in IN (much cheaper then IL) so between games 1 & 2 I will be going back and forth between the two states.

Hey I don't know if you have any reason for going through OH, but if you are just going from Lansing to Chicago, you'll want to take 69 S to 94 W. Thats easily the fastest way, I did it for 5 years. Sounds like you plan on going 127 S to 80-90 W, which will take you WAY out of your way. If your hotel is in Ft. Wayne or something like that, take 69 S all the way into Indiana. (just tryin to help as I see you're from Jersey) Have a good time and have a :gulp: at the Cell for me!!

You are absolutely right. I made the same drive for 4 years, and the best part is it goes right past the ballpark.

Mercedes is one of my favorite cars ever, and one with the Sox logo is a must have!!!!!!!!!! I love the idea, I love what it looks like!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope a lot of people will honk their horns.

I didn't post it because of the commercial post warning, but I guess it's ok since I don't own the company.

If you decide to buy something, tell him Erik Cohen sent you, maybe he'll give you some sort of discount if it's a decent purchase.

You're too hard on yourself with those 3 points. It looks kick ass and I'm jealous that my car doesnt look like that!

As Fat Freddy in Superfly said after Priest gave him a joint from Cuba, "Just beautiful, man."

Just got home. OMG what a weekend.

Anyway, to the topic at hand. I heard about 10 honks...the girl who I was with asked why everyone was honking and I explained the thread.

We went to a party for game 1 and we got tickets to game 2. After game 2 we drove around for about an hour (near Puffers) were the cops kept showing up...everyone honking horns and screaming.

Wow.
