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,

    And at first glance, I thought the joke was that a med roller must equate to something like a quarter chub...

    Unfortunately, the only thing I have is the $20 Versace jacket I found that Spoo turned into $521. That's got to be good enough for tenth place on the ebay monies, right? Top 25? Am I even in a bowl game?

    Holy cow, wow, just damn wow wow wow wow.

    Spoo is awesome guy, he also has this Midas touch, high end gear just gravitates towards him.

    In a surreal parallel universe, he would only need to walk past a store and his mere presence would cause the highest end gear to rain down into his large vintage Louis Vuitton case. In a billion years from now his reincarnated self would become the first man to find perfectly preserved Hermes gear in a fossil dig. Others would find boring bones turned into rock, he would find well tailored wares.

    Nice!! I had a Volvo '01 S60 T5 followed closely by an '05 S60 R. Sold it for the best (or so I thought)t. I get the mod bug on almost every car I own and with the Volvos it got expensive quick. I'm talking full Heico exhaust, Heico ECU reflash, Volution wheels, shift kit, etc. Sold it for a car that I felt was so plain-jane I wouldn't feel the need to do mods. Wrong. :laugh:


    :lurk:


    Whaaa? Should have grabbed these regardless if they costed under a Jackson.



    Sadly yes, at least a few of them. I hope they at least throw us a bone once in awhile. They didn't even do that today and I know they had some amazing stuff. :brick:

    Not getting into mods yet, but I've read about the Polestar tuning... Just enjoying it as is for now. It's the first time I've enjoyed driving in like 15 years (stupid kids).

    Also, this fabric is the color of chambray, but is stiffer than chambray shirts and ties I've seen- is it still chambray or is there a better term?

    Wow didn't even recognize the side profile of that Volvo... I loved the S60's my parents had for a while, and the T5's were a lot of fun even in stock form.

    Got the Filson safari coat I found a week or two ago back from the cleaners. No more aromas of urine! On the downside, there was a little printed tag hanging from it that read: Special attention has been given to this garment but the spots or stains remaining cannot be removed without causing damage to the color or material. We call this to your attention so you may realize that it has not been overlooked. It's like [​IMG]for doing what you could, but [​IMG], I paid almost as much for the special cleaning as I did for the jacket. Hopefully it'll break even on the bay.

    Is Kanye wearing a leather kilt at the 12/12/12 concert?
