New Corvette looks tits and the specs are pretty sweet. Can't wait to see what they actually sell for.


Well, theyíre going to sell for stupid markup to start, but I bet a Z51 will be ~$70k.

Anyone want to buy a locked Samsung s9? Would be a good wifi only phone for a kid or something... $200. It's brand new still in packaging.

Cobra is back burnered until I’m done with the Bimmer. The Bimmer build wasn’t planned. It just happened and now has spiraled lol.
I remember you installing the new turbo a few weeks or a month ago or so....so was the GTI getting buttoned up with tuning?

Just a little "spiral" on the Bimmer build...
ETA for the Bimmer to be finished?


So what have you been driving with those 2 cars gone btw?

OT again...you ever finish the wall?

Yeah, final tuning on the GTI. Itís really smooth and seems to have good power. Itís stupid hot in the northeast right now, so I canít tell how good the power really is yet.

Iíd like to have the bimmer able to be driven back to Texas by the fall. A project like that is never done lol.

I donít really need a car unless Iím doing projects. Lately itís been too hot to do much outside. Iíve been doing crown molding inside though and I just get what I need on the weekends when the lady is home.

The wall is up and functional. It needs finishing touches to the capstones and I have to route the drainage tubes properly, but that will have to wait till it gets cooler.

Dude it was BRUTAL on Saturday. The dewpoint was in the 80s! I've never seen it that high.

I had to run around in the AM to get new tires put on the Diesel. I walked 2 blocks from the Discount Tire to a Dunkin... at 8:30am... and was gross by the time I got back. Went and grabbed the trailer afterwards, brought it home, took a shower, figured "all I gotta do is strap the car down and go" and I was soaked in 20 minutes just putting the car on the trailer. Don't know why I even bothered showering.

Thermometer in the Diesel bounced between 97-98 the whole trip down to Autobahn. Poor thing was working hard.

Sometime around 5:45pm, suddenly, the humidity disappeared and the temp dropped a solid 15 degrees. Was crazy as it blew in and changed everything over the course of what felt like 2-3 minutes. It was nice enough that I drove home from Autobahn with the windows down.

I'll also say - being able to take a shower at Autobahn before climbing into the car to drive home was excellent.

Fortunately I was done by 11 but yeah, it was disgusting. My junk was pretty much JB welded to my leg.
