    Will do. It's getting back from a year in the shop, so there will probably be some initial issues and it'll smell like an 80's ford for a while 'til the oil burns off, but I can already tell you that it's an absurdly liveable car - the only issue I've ever had with it is clearance, and only rarely. Maybe I'll start another blog...

    Are you into cars at all? I've never seen you post about them. I'm pretty sure you're on the west coast too so you must at least drive. :D

    I think I posted about it on SG also - the turbos have been replaced with the BW X50 from the 996 GT2, along with a few things that I can't remember specifically (altered suspension, exhaust). I believe it was running around 520 bhp the last time the owner had it dyno'd. No carbon ceramic brakes, though...

    That'll be fun to drive, careful though, thing can bite you in the ass when you least expect it.


    I've always been into cars, I still run at a track every 3-4 months. I've posted here and there but I'm mostly active on it on other forums since I rarely go to the Lifestyle section of this forum.

    It's pretty friendly, even compared to like an old M5 (or my buddy's track-spec'd 2002). Not a kitten or anything, but less eager to destroy you than a GT3. Although once I did lose traction over a crest at 135 :embar: I was an irresponsible 18 year old. Again, most of the ones you see in Colorado have carseats in back and ski racks attached to them.

    I could, but would not want to. You won't want to look at that thing in a year, and that's what I'm avoiding here - TOJ is very laid back and the clothes should just be clothes to wear, not a stroking exercise. :eek:

    Was experimenting with my OG MA-1 and goth ninja gear today, dunno if you'd support that Drew [​IMG]

    Crosspost from WAYWT:

    Not my submission for the contest though, thinking of submitting my OG FQHH bomber (with better photography) for that - wish I'd get my 2010 DR before the new year but there's no chance of that

    It'd work. I can see it working from the start.
