I collect parts, nuts, and bolts. My cellar is full of Miata parts and other mechanical stuff. I can't ever move

What that Collection needs is an original MSM exhaust manifold and cast down pipe section.

haha never saw any point/reason to a twin turbo setup unless on a v8 or something.
or a compound setup on a diesel.

besides my wrx is already past the limit of the stock engine and trans and plenty fast for me.
And fast enough to slap around with a new 500hp v10 M5 and hurt it's feelings

Bulletproof small block Chevy which will require patience when towing very heavy loads. Not much else to say there IMO.

I collect cynicism. Doesn't ever get dusty.
I seem to collect old relics that others feel the need to throw away. Usually I end up selling them and making money, but as of lately they have been sitting and collecting dust, thus not making me any money.

Hoping I don't become a hoarder.....

In the interest of preventing such an occurrence, I volunteer to take your blue car. I will drive it every day (weather permitting), so as to not let it just sit.

I do this as a service to Miata turbo members, free of charge.

This guy, Richard Luthmann, is a lawyer in NYC:



He's also named as the defendant in a civil suit in which a couple of ******** are trying to recover directly from him money which they received in a judgement against one of his clients, who promptly disappeared.

Said lawyer has indicated that he has no intention whatsoever on paying this money, and it seems like the law is probably on his side. But the plaintiffs continue to file increasingly extravagant motions, to wit, Mr. Luthmann just filed a brief with the county clerk's office invoking his right to Trial by Combat, and requiring that the plaintiffs nominate their combatant.

"Game of Thrones" Fan Demands Trial by Combat - Lowering the Bar

Not makin' this **** up.

The brief: https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/nys...US_VQ9ZDKUfw==

You can't get it with the Allison, which is the best part of a 2500HD IMHO.

Wow, it caught me off guard
Went to breathe out and she made me cough hard
Contacted god to let him know to slip two in
Fine, and how are you doin'?
Can I get you a drink? This one's a shoe-in
In a situation that I'm on a mission to ruin
Her big butt and smile was like camo
Hit up the men's room, need more ammo
Watch your 3 o'clock, a new recruit
That's her gin and Juicy-Juice
Used a stick of Juicy Fruit
She just knew she was cute
It's in her own best interests
Less stress hit her with a "do you need a mint?" test
It don't matter if she's slim or dressed to impress
I won't rest, fellas don't fess
Some of them need to eat the whole thing of Crest
It's been a long day
It's just how the song say
[She needed a mint] [she needed a mint]
I hope she don't take this the wrong way
[She needed a mint] [she needed a mint]

Every now and then, I dream about what my future manual trans eco gas saving DD will be while the miata is not drivable.

I always go back to Yaris. I want a turd shaped car to beat up on. Tint the windows, plastidip it matte poo brown, loud exhaust and give 0 fks
