It is insane to me to see that amount of money paid to a single person during a time when $5 was a lot of money to anyone.

Absolutely dreary day here in Montreal. Heavy rain, but the plus side is that we can’t really work in the rain, since it shorts out some of the circuits in our equipment. Calling it a day shortly, since the radar says this is going to keep going well into the afternoon.

Can’t hate half days, I suppose.

It was pretty gloomy here all day yesterday, but today it is mostly cloudy with some sun trying to stay steady. I wish I could take a half day regardless. I've done nothing useful today so far and it doesn't look like I'll find much to do with the second half either.

You bastard!

If you pay politicians enough money, they CAN say FU to the lobbyists and bribes. If you pay politicians relatively little, they HAVE TO take everything they can get. If money = speech, then bribery is legal, and that's what we have now.

Taft definitely was definitely a career politician that won big. Not only the President but then served as Chief Justice the rest of his life. The man knew how to work the system.

There isn't "enough money". You pay them more then the graft requirements just get bigger. If they are going to take bribes then it is not like they would just say "Oh my pay is enough" no matter how much it is.

Been facing this pre midlift... adjustment and selling the FRS

the issue isnt selling the Frs.

its what to replace it with..

I need knee room and outside of a bmw or the latest S550 mustang nothing else interests me for being a sport but fun street car with track day potential..


and who has the money for an e46 these days

might have to suck it up and get a GD subaru or something

Loved mine! I owned it for 13 years and nearly 300K. The new owners seem to be in love with it too.

was a sort of 'god' car for me back in teh early 00's since I only had a 02 at the time. they are dropped in price enough I could swing it should I sell the FRS>

I like the room, accessibility and modification outlook. its not as nimble as the frs. but the head and leg room and the turbo justify the driving dynamic change... Just gotta get patient and sell my hunk
