Bringing home the donor car

October 28, 2015 – 07:54 pm
1958 Lotus Seven at the Well it has been a long day.  I've spent the last few weeks watching Craigslist trying to find a good donor car.  I came close to some great buys, but everyone knows that takes perfect timing.
Well there was one car that I kept being drawn back to.  It was a salvaged car about 3 hours away.  It was $500 more than I was wanting to spend.  I kept watching it through the week and decided if it was still around by Friday that I'd start making offers.  Well after some haggling, I got the price dropped another $300.  I put together a plan to drive down at 6am with a friend to go pick it up.  Then I found out that with it's salvage title that it was illegal for it to be on the road and that it needed to be towed.  Ouch.  A 3 hour drive to tow something back sight-unseen.  That's a little bit of a risk at the last minute.  I found a Uhaul dealer to pick up a car hauler, but that meant spending more money.  Top this also off with the fact that I wanted to be back for my daughter's soccer game.  Things weren't falling into place and my wife recommended that I might pass on this.  I told the guy that I couldn't do it right now and he said to let him know if things change.
I searched the internet more that night and just couldn't find anything

These guys are FUNNY! Really get their point across with humor. Saw them at the protest in SF on the 24th of Sept.
Below is the email:
Hello gang,
I went with two other friends to the Rove house Saturday around 12:30 pm.
Turning off our cell phones early and removing their batteries, we
parked 3 blocks away, not wanting to alert his goons to our presence.
We dawned over sized Bush, Cheney, and Condi Rice masks. We also had
three large signs.
Amazingly, within 2 minutes of our arrival, Rove came out of his house
with another gentleman (we speculate his lawyer), and then drove off
with him in his Jaguar! Surprisingly, it was not Jeff Gannon. It was
clear from the expression on his face that he did not look out the

America's Disappearing Midle Class

Here is who we are. We’re the generation that left small town America, moved to the city and got our degrees, Master’s degrees mostly, and rode some of the economic booms in the 80’s and 90’s and then Boom !!! We’re Busted. And now we’re Over 40 and living at home with our folks again. . I’m so tired of hearing my old mother fart and piss and shit in the next room, since I sleep on the porch.
From something to nothing. Most I know were making at least 60,000 to 90,000. Some over 100.000, the 6 figure income dream of the 90’s. Information Technology, Finance, Accounting… all of those fields that our government controlled schools told us to go into in the 80’s and funded our education through student loans and then they go and outsource it all. So we spent...
