    Yeah, i remember it. and remember every single Racist post that has been posted. i let it slide. but as a daily victim of Racism? i find it to be a smear not only to the poster, but to the thread as a whole.

    Carry on..

    Yeah - every year the White House selects or commissions a painting for the Christmas cards. Staff and VIP friends get one of those large-format prints. I have one or two sitting around from when I worked in the Bush admin. Need to get them framed.

    Something tells me that this "thrift" will have four wheels and an abundance of horsepower.

    Right then, some shite I found while a-thiftin'...

    NWT LVC hawaiian popover. I really like this, was surprised they retail for £150. NA.

    NWT PRPS. Easily the worst pair of jeans I have ever bought. They threw everything at the wall and it all stuck. Yes, that's a suede "underpatch". Available if this is your thing.

    NWOT Edwin shirt, NA.
    [​IMG]

    2 Brioni Super 150s. 1 suit, 1 orphan.

    [​IMG]

    LP bespoke - I think?! I thrifted this today while walking a grumpy baby. Was sufficiently distracted to miss the hole in the front of the jacket. I'm not sure about getting it fixed and will probably just redonate - available at cost (£10) + postage if anyone wants to have a go. Otherwise decent, tiny bit of sheen. Not measured it yet.

    They are a 9.5. More to the point, I'm extremely wary of shipping these anywhere (and especially outside Canada) since I have no way of knowing whether they're pre- or post-ban, and no way of proving that provenance either way. So I'd rather find someone in my life who wants to dress like a villain from Captain Planet and pass them on.

    That is exactly what I was thinking too! I'm excited to hear about a possible automotive thrift. I thought I was the only one who did that!

    Awwwwww.... You guys know me too well. but you can't deny this one is "True Thrift". found around the side of a buddy's workshop.
    A 2000 Subaru Impreza WRX STI in "Cashmere Yellow".

    [​IMG]
    EVERY Factory STI option, including the FHI Aerospace tower brace, STI intercooler, and other serious money parts.

    Apart from needing a polish and some TLC? This is the Car that kicked "Godzilla" in the nuts.. [​IMG]
    Price for me? - $809 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    -And for those who don't know, i helped build a Subaru Rally car for the WRC. so it's in good hands. it is mine. period. but i want to pay him sooner. to get it home.
    Will be fitting a 6spd and Federal Semi slicks with the quickness. after my buddy sorts out the paint for me.

    That's one ugly-colored car, but I wish you the best with it! Looking forward to the deals.
