@PowderHound yeah so much of what I saw on the drive was just blatantly reposted from other sites, I stopped checking the main page but still wanted to make sure Stef and Kristen got clicks so I just bookmarked their staff pages and checked them regularly for new stuff.
@rctothefuture And if you haven't seen Truth in 24, it's fucking stellar. Le Mans 2011 is still the most exciting, amazing race I've ever seen, and seeing from inside Audi's team just makes it that much better.
@facw As @jminer pointed out, in MO you get a paper temp tag from the dealership, which they get as a book of blanks from the state. St Louis is also right on the border with IL, so you have a lot of people who buy a car in one state and live in the other. You'd see a lot of temp tags even if you did issue real plates at the dealership for in-state buyers.
All of the things that you bring up require money and technology that are hard to come by in most of the state. For St Louis in particular, there is also widespread hostility toward police (which is beyond reasonable but not entirely unjustified). That makes funding more advanced enforcement tools a tough sell, especially when much more serious crimes are completely out of control right now.
I'm glad things are looking up and the lil'one is on the mend.
U.S. insurance can seriously go shove it's head up it's arse and that agent and the doctor in Ohio, I hope they fall and shatter their patellas.
I'm in a good place right now. Moved to the Charlotte area for a new job that's going well, in a house with the wife and kids, the cars are still running, and I'm coming up on 60 (!!) days clean and sober.
Thanks for the reminder to be grateful for what we have. Just for today...
Puppets and Justice was them being experimental and a little weird when they finally had the notoriety and success to do so and before they started making music for Jock Jams #69 and Dodge commercials.
I would just like to get into car life and unfortunately I don't have a garage.
meh, don't worry about it. I've never changed my own oil 😄 I treat my cars like pets so whenever I take it in for an oil change it's like seeing the vet, and then they can tell me that my radiator hoses are about to shit the bed 😰
@KITT222 I’ve got an update for my attendance. I should be able to make Saturday lunch, US Auto, and the start of the farewell party. I accidentally double booked a date for Saturday night so I’ll have to dip earlier than I intended 😅
You are making me regret that I HAVEN’T ridden a ‘Busa… I always thought they were absurd when I was younger and uninformed, but being Florida, part of that was because just about every one of them had an extended swingarm for drag racing or at least the aesthetic of drag racing.
Yours may be one of the most attractive I’ve seen with the bright yet not over the top yellow. My coworker has a metallic orange one that seems pretty nice too. It is his daily right now while he rebuilds the engine in his Camaro. /Florida
Would you consider another if the right bike/price came up?
