First time Owner!

Just bought an '05 Passion Convertible and am based in Newport. Would love to meet up with some other RI owners to share info and stories.

You might want to PM him because I don't know if he'll check the zombie thread.

I'm still in Newport. I had the car out today to detail and then fill up at Newport Biodiesel. I drove around over 60 miles today and the fuel gauge never came off the first bubble! It gets a lot of looks over here. Rarely do I come out of a store when there aren't 1-2 people checking it out and asking me questions (which is half the reason I spent 3 years tracking down a diesel). I don't have to tell you guys how much fun it is to put down the top and cruise around the island on a sunny day....

Nice! I just lost my first bubble in my gas gauge at 80 miles, but usually by that point I've used just under 2 gallons-it's calibrated funny. I always have people looking and waving and asking questions about the car.

It would be nice to get some kind of RI or RI/CT/MA meetup going. I like the idea of a whole bunch of smarts lined up on Thames St. or at Iggy's down by the bay.

If anybody has any other ideas, pitch them in, we'll pick a date, and make it happen.
