... or maybe a 996 ('98-'05 911) cabrio, as I'm finding that they're about the same price.

Dammit, I'm so confused.

Have you priced 911 turbos lately?

You can get a decent-looking 911 Cabrio for about the same money as a new 4-cyl Accord. The 911 turbos start in the mid 40s and very rapidly escalate from there.

This song has been stuck in my head so like a chain letter I am going to pass it on in the hopes of getting it unstuck



That has always been one of my favorite Scorp songs. Uli and Klaus are in fine form. After being tucked away for years in the back of my mind, the soundtrack of GT5 brought it back to the forefront.

Glad that I have friends to help me out with all my swaps. BUT. I can't wait 'til I'm rich as **** and can pay others to work on my car.

I'm going to get drunk now.

I ******* hate my internet. It's never been fast, but recently it's been dropping to about 0.28Mbps. We pay for 1.5. On a good day we get about 1.1.

The worst part is that living where I do there is literally ONE high-speed internet option and ONE speed to choose from, so there's zero motivation for them to actually give a ****.

Indeed. 1st-gen 2.7l boxster, 3.2l swap, turbo'd and 'squirted.

If anyone can do it, Joe, it's you.

Came close to getting one 2 years ago until I realized how much oil changes cost. 10qts of Mobile1 every 3k miles would suck.

****** A! I thought I was only getting $950ish back from the feds, but they put $1357 into my account, so I guess I did some math wrong or they found something I missed. Love when they give me more than I asked for. They did the same thing a few years ago, got a few extra hundred back that what I was expecting. Now I can go pay off my TV and my small medical bills and be back above water. Sweet.

****! Scales are hard to draw. You have to deal with the spacing between scales both in rows and columns, then account for the curve of the body and the perspective... that isn't perfect but it'll have to ******* do, cause I'm not doing it again. Roughage of a portion of my soon to come leg sleeve. Though I have been saying soon for the last year.



I guess maybe I could take a coin or something and use it to retrace cleaner curves, at least the ones that are perfectly round. Most are weird curves.

I got glass block basement windows installed yesterday. I can feel the difference already. We had replacement windows installed in the rest of the house, and this was the last step.

Glass block is baller, especially when in a bathroom.

2k blown motor Jag

1k misc

BANG. Ultimate class and small block reliability.
But what else is busted on an old $2k jag?
