    One other thing I thought of, although not sure how applicable it is to fires in the general public. Besides the standard ABC grade extinguishers, there are also personally refillable water...

    Super sorry to hear, Dan. Thanks for the reminders. I caught myself on fire today, but that kinda goes with my job. :p

    LOL! Mostly true! Although there are notable exceptions which I won't go into here.... It's harder to text and take selfies while riding, which I think is a major contributor to the slow death of...

    There you go. Good sample of his writing for anyone who hasn't been exposed.

    I own Leanings 2 and Leanings 3, plus Side Glances, but I mistakenly loaned Leanings 1 to my ex bro-in-law years ago...

    A year has seen me get the Tuono back on the road and get another thousand or so miles on it so far. At just under 140 hp, it's no slouch but isn't a "fast bike" by today's standards. But also, no...

    I think this sentence is really, really important. One of the most aptly worded thoughts I've read in years, actually.

    That's pretty cool; they and Griggs were the main games in town 20+ years ago as well. I had a couple of the less expensive MM parts on the old Fox body that I autocrossed a few times. Glad to see...

    Great looking Cobra! They made the SN95 years more palatable. I had a friend with a black '99. You really don't see these anymore.

    I got quoted $5.29/lb for 5P+ today. I'd bought a bunch of Dual-Shield and 1/8" Excalibur 6 months ago because I was afraid this was going to happen....and it has. Jet Rod is still in the $3.70-ish...

    The fact that it's a European car is mainly what gives me pause. I hate working on them (European cars in general) and I hate the connotations that owning one have in this area ("they're for...

    Yeah, it's probably not an awful deal, but in my previous life I had a 40k mile 04 Z06 (well...Z16) and I'm just not really sure if I want to repeat that car again but with higher miles. It was fun,...

    So exactly how closely related is Porsche to VW on the mechanical end of things? Same designers, same annoying hard-to-disconnect electrical connectors, same way-overdesigned everything? I don't...

    Yeah, after having life happen, I'm more in the $6800 04 V6 with 110k or $9700 09 S V8 with 145k market.... :p Both of those are coming up in my CL nearby choices.

    Same here. I meant to text you the same thoughts yesterday, but I fell asleep before I could put them in action. Your car was in some great company! We didn't end up coming back to C-at-C on...

    I just learned that the friend I'm going to Corvettes at Carlisle with is wanting to sell me his '11 ZR1. Don't know the price. Black with 18k miles. I'm pretty sure I'm lacking about $40k of the...

    Anybody here going to Corvettes at Carlisle? I know one guy who is. :)

    Heck, I'm waiting for the C7 to come down. My C5Z was $22k in 2014 with 38k mi, but it was the 04 Z16 edition. Others were just under $20k at the time. I'll get a C7 with the admiral blue GS with...

    If I can't have the .25-20 back, I want a lightly recoiling .257 rifle round. Something like 60 grains at 2000 fps. A quiet critter getter, not really deer capable in the accepted sense of the...

    PS - The youtube video was nice and touching, a bunch of old people trying to do things in the old ways. Did you notice the broken-up and falling-down fences and buildings on those farms? Look...

    Welcome to capitalism; did you grow up in the USSR? Profit is what we do here. I'm not a corporation, but I'm a businessman and I'm darn sure in it for the profit. Why are corporate profits bad...

    It's been a super hot week. I saw this thread, wanted to reply, recognized that my views would run counter to probably the entire forum's views, that I didn't have energy for debate, and decided to...

    I can think of very few family traditions as honorable as yours. It is a credit to your ancestors to have instilled this in their line.

    Just saw the thread, had to read 9 pages to be sure I wouldn't be repeating anyone else. Since I'm not, I doubt what I want will come back. :p

    Did you do it right and put a 4-bbl intake on it, or did you just use a spacer plate? :p Or did you use a <gulp> Holley 2-bbl?
