This is getting really over the top
What so good about a kid (although quite ugly) being spanked by a gang of
Kids some of which (I believe those to be girls) wear short uniforms.

I understand that one cannot speak about electrons all day but this is going over the top.

Could you lot speak about something else like......

If memory serves the last time we discussed cars we spent the day trying to cheer you up about the fact that you were considering putting yours out to pasture. Perhaps you can go to the local auto dealer and make a deal for a brand new - oh let's say $40,000 USD auto and you can come back and relate to us just how sore your bum is after that deal........

Not to far off of my $40K USD guess. After adding tax's, delivery charges, dealer add-on's, royal spanking, cost should be over 40K easily......

It all started with a tricked out Datsun 280Z (USA name for Nissan before they changed). Slapped on an air dam and spoiler and custom 2 tone paint job (that cost some $$$) suspension and exhaust system work with low restriction headers, juiced the cam and valves etc. I got tired of not having a proper trunk (or boot for some) and so went out and purchased a Volvo Turbo. The Turbo was OK but it was a pre intercooler so eventually the turbo gave it up and it was time to move on to a Volvo 760 Turbo. The quality of construction and parts on the 760 was so bad that I traded it in on a Toyota Avalon which was nice for the time and pretty good. Then went totally luxo with a Lexus 400 something. Now I drive a Ford SUV because SWMBO likes to sit up high and be able to see the traffic around her when she drives. I gave up on having a 2nd car after I retired because all it did was sit around and collect dust. I'm tempted to pick up a little two seat sports car of some type just to have some fun in but currently having to feed 18 y/o granddaughter and her mob of pals. I tried to sell her off here but apparently this is the wrong market for that as everyone is spending their funds on audio gear...... sigh.....

The 280Z in the attached photo was not mine - it's just a photo of a tricked out Z. My paint job was much nicer - metallic dark charcoal with contrasting metallic dark green mist with very small metal flakes imbedded.

Nice.
We have a ford suv. That she won't trade in cause they don't make them in that color setup, leather colors and 2 tone paint.I don't think they make a Eddie Bouwer anymore at all.
But I miss my dodge ram the most of all my past cars.

Been there - done that. She even tried "High fidelity" for a while - as in "truly high" that is....but fortunately her father [who is very rich] helped her sort that out - and she is now a very sane, humorous and intellegent psychotherapist of some 42 years of age!

I always wanted a Datsun GT. Never got one and never been in one I had a Fiat 2300s Superleggara and that was followed by a Trident Clipper (with a Ford 289 Hi-Po engine which had been blueprinted) BW T-10 box and Webber race clutch!!! That was very hairy indeed. 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds, but a real boneshaker (perhaps should have used a different term on this thread!) until doing over 85mph. The best were a couple of elderly Maseratis (3500GT) and 4200 Mistral Coupe. Got the first one with a seized-up crank and totally rebuilt the engine and power train (ZF 5 speed box). The second came as a bargain basin job when the owner's debts caught up with him....I got offered 375% cash profit and it just had to go - I owned it for five weeks in total, four of which were spent working on brakes and suspension. DON'T EVER MENTION ALFAS TO ME. Suffice it to say that in the UK they rust very very quickly - or did in the 1970s. Since 1983 have had a succession of Audis....mainly Quattros and still using a 10 year old 2.7T Estate which drives like a 12 month old car.

Sadly ours is still 18 y/o - sigh. Actually she is a nice young lady and working hard on getting started in life. She has been dealt a bad hand to play in the game of life and my wife and I are helping with turning that around and things are going very well. Well - today they are going pretty well

My Uncle Buddy would rebuild Alfa's as a hobby - he loved the engineering on 'em. My he rest in peace...

I need to get me one of these just for sport.... I think that this one might have been owned by Jacco tho - given the paint job color (colour)......
