      I'm being 100% honest when I say that thing is badass and I would totally drive it around. I'm not kidding! That is an awesome paint job!

      One of my good friends helped to test that rifle. He has photos of him testing it with the designer. The recoil is so severe with the 20mm it just about blew the hearing protection off of his head!...

      That's why I wouldn't hire them to rout ISIS. I wouldn't hire the Black Swans, or the 7th Muslim Brigade either.

      I didn't forget them. They're not the kind that I'd hire to clear out ISIS though. Those guys weren't mercs they were a paramilitary.

      They've got a big building in NYC. Just walk in and say "I'm here to plunder, rape, pillage, and rip off the third world." They're sure to hire you quickly... or make you their leader.

      Al Venter wrote about the several different kinds of mercs. Who you hire depends on what you want to get done.

      It was working quite well in Iraq for quite a while actually. There were plenty of PMCs in Iraq. It worked great in Biafra, Sao Tome, Katanga, Sierra Leone, Angola, The Belgian Congo, Georgia,...

      Neither do I. I think a well organized group of mercenaries on the ground under contract to provide intelligence, targeting, leadership or local militias, and coordinating stability operations is.

      You know the difference between these guys and the United Nations? When the U.N. plunders, rapes, and kills civilians they charge 100x the amount of money.

      I'll do it. Just don't ask me why so many guys have double headed eagles, scorpions, daggers, water buffalo, or orthodox crosses on their berets.

      Yeah I wouldn't have thought they were that good until I heard it directly from the owner. For what it's worth I ran into the guy at the Porsche "Double Fifty" at Watkins Glen in 1998. That is when...

      I was talking about buying a 914 and turning it into some sort of track monster or hot rod. The Cayman is a much better bet in the long run. 914s will appreciate as collector's cars as more of them...

      The post apparently is long lost in a bbs software upgrade but years ago I wrote on the vortex about how I met an owner of an original 550 Spyder and a Beck kit Spyder. He had the original for sale...

      Supposedly the Cayman is just that itsy bitsy bit tighter. Again I don't want to dissuade collectors of classic cars... I just want to put a reality shock into the "I want to throw money at something...

      The problem is that such a conversion will end up costing much more money than just getting a faster car. A smarter solution would be to do the Subaru WRX engine conversion. The parts to do it are...
