      That's where I know you from.

      I want a sexy Italian car, but I can't afford a Ferrari. Alfa would work just fine for me.

      This is a very correct statement.

      I couldn't do it. I worked up through sales, ran internet departments, desked, and filled in as a Sales Manager. I don't have the customer service skills to...

      Oh it was. Buying their PV systems after they went bankrupt was comically cheap. We have a total of 150 kW of their panels for pennies on the dollar, and as we remodel our showrooms, we install PV....

      And what sucks about that is I don't work with an Audi franchise, so no employee pricing or lease deal for me. :(

      I'm used to getting things for triple net, buyrate, and no bs. I'm really mean to...

      I imagine that would work. In CA, you can build a car, have the highway patrol issue you a VIN, then you get the state to inspect it, then you register it as a kit. I can't imagine a great build on a...

      I've changed computers and didn't transfer some files, so I lost my napkin math on carbon dioxide release from a coal powered EV against a normal commuter. The coal powered EV still pencils out with...

      I don't usually like Fox bodies, but I have a soft spot for LX 5.0's for sure. I can't stand the body cladding on the GT's.

      New old car...hmmm.

      I'd pay MSRP for a brand new E39 M5 that had a...

      I saw one of these this morning. I was wondering what the blue badge was. Gotta love having VW's Electric Research Lab down the street from my place. I get to see all sorts of cool stuff.

      Plug in...

      This. Jesus. Well lets just compare some apples to elephants.

      Mine runs off a 25kW solar array.

      It's a real pretty drive, but it can get a little boring. You can stop and swim, there's an amazing botanical garden that's worth stopping at, and a really cool lava tube on the way.

      My girlfriend bought a Versa Note 5 spd for $13k out the door. For that price, it has a tach, AC, power mirrors, ABS, Stability Control, not one but two glove boxes, and an AUX input. Hell of a deal....

      I think it's interesting, and I'm sure that it would surprise people that I work in marketing and operations, yet I know about alternate forms of submarine propulsion.

      I blame Tom Clancy, Clive...

      Correct. I chose the wrong word, and didn't explain myself well enough. :beer:

      Scalability has been a massive issue. Powering a drive unit large enough to move a sub at a reasonable speed, and...

      Yup. Plus, getting a gas that cold safely is not probable given current technology. IIRC magneto hydrodynamic drives need helium to be at 1 degree kelvin.

      What about a 44 year old BMW that was loose from the factory? My E9 has 178k on the chassis, and these things were wet noodles from the factory.

      I see what you're saying, but unless you're...

      My lady and I bored in line for Pirates of the Caribbean at Disney Land last week. Best part of this film strip app is that we didn't plan the photos in advance. We just acted goofy and rolled with...

      My girlfriend is a dot not a feather, and these terms make it easy for us to determine who is talking about what.

      We should bring back lead bismuth, single use reactors.

      Aside from the radio, I love it. I have a modern radio in a classic car, and it's an eye sore for sure.
