    In rural America we drink well water, so I think I'll be okay as long as I don't turn in to a Californian.

    Also have a bidet and a veggie garden.

    Just need to get a generator for when someone rushing to buy TP and bottled water takes out the power.

        But do you have a bidet IN your veggie garden?

        COV19 just cancelled an upcoming 5 day conference I was scheduled to go to and present at. Not really a bummer in terms of travel, only 30 minutes away, but would have been nice to have listed on the ole CV and network at.

          Interesting idea, PM Kershaw, he's the real bidet booster on r3v.

          Go there and present to no one, then put it on your resume.

            i'm finally doing an m50 swap and there are m20 level m52s at the yards now.
            NEVER will find an m50 manifold those get pulled first 5min. e34 oil pans, same.

            there was 2 m52s at the yards but one is nasty and the other is halfway nasty.

            ton of crappy m54s though.

              I noticed this here too. One E32 with an M30 that I might go back this weekend to nab the diff/trans from, one early e36 318, and like 10 E46: all auto (save one 5-speed) and all non-3.0L variants.

                The yard was also selling an E90 328i 6-speed with sport package for $3500 and I'm really tempted. I just keep telling myself there must be something mechanically wrong just so I don't buy it.

                  Non turbo N5Xs are pretty bullet proof. That's a pretty good deal if you can get it with all the DME/harness

                    ^ $3500 CAD for the full car, I assume everything is there... I just don't have the money sadly.

                    EDIT: I think it's not inspected, and assume there's a reason why.

                      I mean, if you were going to go for a N series, I'd go N54 anyways. stronger block and TURBO

                      So, I had my first Aston Martin experience today.

                      Doing some electrical work on an '07 Vantage, but damn that car is fungin heavy. Also, not impressed at all by the interior... BUT it's beautiful and honestly still my fav brand for a baller car lol

                      It's got a simple interior, but not in a good porsche way, like shitty tesla way. The car itself feels like a tank though, which is awesome. Once I get it running, I'll take it for a spin, but something tells me I'll be disappointed.

                          2007 was the end of Ford ownership, but their interiors didn't get better until maybe 2012 or 13. As with anything as hyped as an AM it'll be disappointing as it can never quite live up to it's reputation. But if you think of it as a posh Mondeo with a V8 it will exceed expectations.

                            I've heard Aston Martin interiors are kinda disappointing. They are gorgeous on the outside though, but that's the limit of the appeal, at least for me. Lack of stick is also a big negative.

                              the cars look gorgeous. Timeless lines, as do the jags.

                                these cars came with manual transmissions. they were somewhat uncommon though. what I like about these cars is that all the little accoutrements (knobs and levers) are all made of metal and not plastic. they are well made in that regard and pretty. I agree that the interior is just ok, but not a deal breaker for me. I would like to have a Ford era example. economy seems to be going to shit right now. these cars are probably gonna be really cheap in a year or two....


                                here is an example
