1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Yes, that too. She treats me like a country bumpkin if I am walking down the street and something insanely rare like an SSK drives by and I go nuts. Cars here though, are just beyond normal in every way. It's been years but I am still trying to make sense of it.

    There's a bar right by my house, tiny little place - it's a room just big enough to hold a car inside and a cocktail bar with stools, so they do just that and the owner parks his exotic cars inside. He is a car dealer so he changes cars out regularly and you just go in and sit and look at the Ferrari or Lambo he has parked in there that night. Last night there was an LP640 on the floor.

    I'm the exact same way and people always look at me funny, when I stop and stare at some random car.

    I tend not to stare but I get a good look. Just like checking out women. I have taken the ocassional picture. But this was when traveling abroad and I came across this Audi truck in a stunning matte black paint job

    I was in a taxi today at an intersection on a red and on one side was a 901-type 911 in silver, had chromed/black Fuchs and a little notched RS-type chin spoiler, blacked front grilles, and then in another corner was a silver 997 C2 - fun to watch the two together but sadly nothing special in Tokyo. It takes something really rare to be notable car-wise here. Even I walked down the street not long ago and saw a guy parking his silver all-original 2002 Turbo with the reversed 'turbo' chin spoiler sticker, and shrugged.

    If I'm in my car (i.e. outside of earshot of strangers) and I see really outstandingly nice or unique car, I'll even let out an orgasmic-like moan sometimes.
