Opening the garage door and seein this:
Nice garage there. Nice plates too
Thanks, though the garage itself is still a bit rough. When I sell the M3, I'm using the proceeds for a new floor, walls and cabinetes to finish out the garage.
I hope you come home from work in one of those cars.
sometimes. I drive the Lotus about twice a week and the Porche about once every 2 weeks (it's an 86 with only 50k miles on it and in pretty mint condition, so I'm trying to keep it nice).
i hate you
hmmm......somebody needs to be a shot
stay in school, work had, get a good job and then you too can spend too much money on cars.
bah. There's no point in owning a car and not driving it. What is it, a trophy? You can always fix it and repaint it. It's a machine, it doesn't die.
...remember to pay special attention in spelling class.
Why? My inability to spell hasn't kept me from having a Porsche and a Lotus in the garage. Spelleng iss oberated.
It does get driven, but it's not the most practical commuter car. I have a 45 mile commute, so often schedule conference calls during drive time. Can't do that with the convertible. I also don't like to drive it if I have to go into the LA area. Sitting in traffic is no fun with an oil cooled car. My other commuting choices are an 05 S4, a 97 M3, and for days I really really don't want to be bothered by the cell phone, the bike in my av so it's not like I'm not enjoying the drive whatever I take.
Don't sell the M3!! Better off selling a kidney . What kind do you have (e30, e36, e46)?
I have an E36 4 door. The only reason I have an S4 instead of an E46 is we were having a kid, so I needed 4 doors. I'd keep the M3 if I had the garage space, but as you can see, there's just not enough room in there. When the lease is up on the Audi, it's most likely replacement will be an E90 M3.
noice. lotus's are popping up everywhere around here, i seen on in the SCHOOL parking lot...someone made a bad decision there.
lol, no one needs to go to school for that. it's imprinted on the Y chromosome.
yeah, but "too much money" is relative. A while back, for me that meant buying a brand spankin' new CRX SI. Now I've got a pretty good job and, well, let's just say I spent a bit more than the cost of that CRX on cars this year.
I would love to come home to those beast myself too.
So you can spell your name on the down payment check.
Never driven an air-cooled car; nonetheless, I do understand the concept. I'd love to see what would happen if the engine were made out of copper with steel cylinder sleeves instead of aluminum or iron. I bet that sucker would cool itself right off.
Yes, I know it would be heavy. German cars are heavy anyway; they're proof that you can have a heavy car that handles well if you don't cheap out on the suspension.
Wouldn't copper corrode really easy? I know copper heatsinks left to sit corrode pretty fast, leave one to the elements and it goes even faster.I ave to polish my copper CPU heatsinks to keep them looking good and having clean contact.
Hmm, good point. But I'm sure there's some alloy out there that preserves copper's good conductivity while preventing corrosion. Maybe adding chrome; that's what they make stainless steel with. Or hell, just chrome plate the thing. A thin coating wouldn't kill the conductivity.
Ooh...or a ceramic engine block...ooh, that would be fun...
as long as I get the amount right, they don't seem to much care about anything else...
whens the kid due? and congrats on the cars and the kid
