Rare vs Desirable 

Since it’s the week of Thanksgiving here I’m working hard perusing CL and along with the Volvo 122s and Jeepster Commandos that usually make up said list (along with a really nice 911 GT3) there is a 1979 Lincoln Mk V that the seller claims is ultra rare by drilling down the options including such highly sought items…

Paging Mr. Nader. Mr. Nader to the white courtesy phone! Paging Mr. Nader. Mr. Nader to the white courtesy phone!

Remember that Integra on the front page that somebody had stuffed a 500ci Cadillac engine in to the back of? And how it was undrivable? That car was a perfectly sane purchase compared to this baby.

Here's Your Chance! Here's Your Chance!

That’s right you could be the proud owner of a VW 412 square back wagon! Bonus features include being sunk down to the hubs and an original Washington green on white plate meaning it hasn’t moved in many, many years! The same person is also selling the rest of those piles of crap collector cars so bring lots of cash!

You're Welcome, Jeff Bezos You're Welcome, Jeff Bezos

I just realized that I’ve been ordering things, needed and otherwise, from Amazon for nineteen years. That’s a lot of money funneled to build the Hall of Doom. Anyone got me beat?

It has come to this It has come to this

I’m probably going to buy a snowblower this weekend. Really deep snow is fairly rare here so I’ve always been able to do the job with a shovel and a bit of swearing, but the purchase of the new house and its 3-car garage as well as an actual sidewalk makes that untenable. The weird thing is that I enjoyed shoveling…

‘Tis the Season ‘Tis the Season

It’s about this time every year that CL becomes flush with people trying to get rid of their stalled projects before they have to store it for another winter. It’s a very dangerous time for bank accounts and marriages.

Москвич ! Москвич !

A coworker of mine, who is from Moldova, just casually mentioned that his dad is thinking of bringing his old Moskvitch over and asked me if it would be worth anything here if/when they decided to sell it.

Dart

It’s a good thing my project car quota is filled because this Dart complete with factory sunroof and folding rear seat is both close to me and fairly cheap.

It's finally Friday!!! It's finally Friday!!!

After a week that included dealing with a remote employee who had just been fired to get their company equipment back I’m more than ready for it.

It seems to be the theme of the day.

When you lose all forms of situational awareness When you lose all forms of situational awareness

You change lanes right in to a tanker truck.

DOTS or is that DOT(Lake)? DOTS or is that DOT(Lake)?

I was heading out to our colo facility to do a little system administering when I spotted one of our local “characters” out for a little spin. I wasn’t quick enough with the camera but luckily there are plenty of shots of it tooling around town available. Given the weather he might have been wishing he was on the…

Ghost driver! Ghost driver!

Any JDM (yo!) folks know the particulars on this? Badges say Nissan Skyline GTS-t. Looked a little rough but fun. We won’t discuss why the driver was wearing a knit cap on an 80 degree day or the fact that my DD needs a bath.

She’s Home She’s Home

After spending the day at the doctor’s office getting aligned, though not getting springs like I hoped, she got to come home for the first time.

I’m officially living here now

The Trials and Tribulations of House Buying and Selling 

Today was supposed to be closing day. Yeah, not so much.

This is my Camaro. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Work project

As many of you are completely unaware of I work for a language company. Right now a coworker is working on a language filter and needs examples of swear words that contain the word “shit” but don’t start with it. Like bullshit, dogshit, batshit, etc. Can any of you wise Oppos come up with more? I think we have the…

Life Happenings Life Happenings

Most people don’t buy a car and a house within a week of each other but I’m not most people. Life stuff to follow so you might want to skip this one.

Fingers crossed [Update]

If all goes well we’re going to be putting in an offer on a nice three-car garage with attached house tomorrow. If it goes through that means the POS Camaro gets to come home. Damn, I want this.
