  2. I 100% agree. I've thought about spinning up a new forum just for build threads. Ideally where the main thread can't be disrupted by random people... maybe they could spin off subthreads or something when they have questions or comments. But I agree, this is a loss for build threads... I still refer back to mine...
  3. Thought I'd update everyone on my last car purchase before things get shut down. About a year ago, I bit on a BaT auction and won. And now I'm the happy owner of a 1985 Ferrari 308 QV. It's been a fantastic machine for the last year. It's quite an amazing machine and brings smiles to everyone's face that sees it. It's wild how much "start power" it has.
  4. It's probably obvious, but forums are dead and this one is no exception. We should have killed it a long time ago, but better late than never, I guess. Some words from our founder, With all that said, the plan is to leave TJs running for another week or so as it is, then put it into read-only mode and work on archiving it into static form. If you have anything you want to say, now is the time to say it! robert
  5. It's a neat facility. Don't know that many people that really ran there, though, but apparently there are some here!
  6. To be positive for a bit... it is really awesome to be able to pop in for the morning and be home by lunch.
  7. Yup, that is one nice feature they offer, for sure. I suspended my membership this year, in fact, while I was unemployed. Also keep in mind a lot of those weekend days are made up of summer months, when nobody wants to rent the track or be at the track. I know, I'm being pretty negative.
  8. 45 weekend track days a year... but I am 99% sure that includes Fridays. Not trying to discourage anyone, but look seriously at your calendar and theirs and be realistic about whether you will be able to really make use of the available track time. I'm a member, but I'm not really sure it's worth it for me at this point.
  9. Not true, actually: https://kinder.rice.edu/2015/08/25/no-katrina-evacuees-didnt-cause-a-houston-crime-wave
  10. Hah, indeed. The Miata was fun, but I felt like I had learned most of what I was going to learn from it. I want something with a bit of power to play with now, so that I can learn some new tricks! And also just have fun.... 🙂
  11. Engine still in process... all the parts have arrived and it is at the machine shop, per my last updated from XAT.
  12. (yeah, Magnum wore a Tigers hat, but I like LA and it's still blue!)
  13. I wish it was a Dino. But I had to settle for a bit more peasant of a Ferrari, 1985 308 QV:
  14. Wait, what other car have I sold? I guess the Miata. But that was years ago! I wish I could keep them all, I just don't have the garage space. 😕 I think the new ride will more than make up for the S2K:
  15. Hasn't been an update in a while. Mostly because I really haven't done much with the car. But today, I sold it. Don't worry, there is something coming to take its place...
