      It was a great financial decision. The car being fun is just a big bonus. I could afford a better/nicer/newer car, but this car is doing just fine by me.

      They're decent cars... The Volvo is better and has better parts availability however. I work for a vendor and have an easier time sourcing parts for my 900 than I do finding stuff for late model...

      I'd love to use 3d printing to replicate NLA trim, seals and such. I mean, how neat would it be to get brand new taillight seals for your Fiat Spider? You could 3d print a mold and produce to order...

      You know, I didn't even notice the Carrera badge. That's a fake, that's not a four cam motor. Even from the tin up the 4-cam looks 100% different.

      I'm going to err on the side of not real... The fan shroud looks wrong and the inner rear hood looks off. The alternator setup may be throwing me though. It seems to have required filter relocation...

      Oh, absolutely. The X-E1 is the nearest thing to a digital G2 we're ever likely to get. I just like the G2, I like the way it feels and performs. The viewfinder is only meh, but having a camera that...

      Personally, I'd just leather wrap the dash in the black car(to match the door cards) and go to a pair of leather Recaro front seats. Other than that I'd leave the car alone. I know the 4th gen dash...

      My only pocketable camera is the hardest one to use, which sadly makes it useless for street shooting. I really want to pick up a Contax G2 kit with as many of the available goodies as I can...

      I'll take this one that's for sale at my friend's shop instead. Same idea, much more timeless execution.

      How are maintenance costs on the C70? Does anyone here have any firsthand experience with the C70 in particular? I've had a lot of friends with Volvo S60s and V70s, and they've been pretty bombproof...

      The owner was actually a guy under 30. He was very proud of how stock it was, and he was telling a few people the last couple things he needed to do to get the car back to 95% OE when I walked up....

      It was pretty nuts. According to Jett Daley it's been sighted as far afield as Ottawa. It may well be a spaceship. I certainly wouldn't want to use ROADS to go from Albany to Ottawa!
