This is a 'keep on dreaming' case I'm afraid, although I hope for peace just as much. In fact, I'm hoping for 'restored' peace in my own turmoiled little country right now...

Sir Stonesalot So Arafat is dead.....good riddance. I hope he's rotting in whatever his religion's version of hell is.

My hope is that his heir isn't a viscious murdering terrorist like Yassar.

Yeah, right.

Angie....stay safe, live free.

Sir Stonesalot RE: The Vette.

Drove one that caught my eye. Sweet red '73 Stingray. It was a fuckin' DOG. Couldn't even chirp the tires slamming into 2nd gear. No fuckin' pick up at all. That just will not do. And it was WAY overpriced. I'm not even gonna make an offer.

If they all drive like that, I'll go with some muscle instead...a GTO, or another Chevelle SS...maybe a '68 or '69 Camaro SS. I gotta have something that fuckin' MOVES, ya know? Shit n git. When I get on the throttle, I want the thing to leap down the road.

I dunno. I got my eyes, options, and checkbook open. I'll know the one when I see it.
November 11th, 2004 02:13 AM
gypsy I've always thought you should go with a muscle car. But I thought the 'Vette was your dream. You just strike me more as the muscle car type. Do you watch "Overhaulin'?" I love that show.
November 11th, 2004 02:42 AM
Sir Stonesalot Gypsy...I have always wanted a Vette. But if they all drive like the one I tried out last weekend...I don't want one.

I don't watch much TV. Is Overhaulin anything like Pimp My Ride?

If I end up with some American muscle, I may have to grow a mullet and start wearing gas jockey shirts.
November 11th, 2004 03:21 AM
gypsy No...the two shows are nothing alike. Check your PM.

nankerphelge Finally -- I thought he'd never leave.
How that murderous shit got a Nobel prize is beyond me!

As for the 'vette -- try a '69 with the 427! Not the stingray style and a bit heavier, but that stock big block is full of piss and vinegar when driven by the correct armor-clad type!
November 11th, 2004 07:22 AM
Mr Hess That asshole!
The good Lord AIN'T gonna shine a light on him!
November 11th, 2004 07:24 AM
Maxlugar True on both fronts Nanks.

The '73 is a year or two into the start of the wimpy phase of Corvette.

Personally, I'd go for the 1967 or 1968 Firebird Convertable with the 400 engine and posi rear. Ballsy!

My father had one when I was growing up and that car is the shit.

I will haved one again within three years.

I also love the '67 GTO. 60's Pontiacs are my favorite.

piratekeef Many stones have been cast in this ongoing conflict. No pun intended. People need peace down there. Yasser was controversial - no doubt about it. However, I'm pretty sure he'll not "rot in hell" as some people out there would like to imagine. After all the shit he and his people endured. It's a pity there had been such an ongoing media controversy about his whereabouts. They even had put him in a grave already.... Never have experienced such a disgusting discussion before. This includes both sides.

You make some good points at the end there that I'd agree with, but with respect, I'm not taking sides in my comments as I dont have a personal axe to grind in that conflict . Regardless of his latter day 'respectability' in the eyes of many people, he was the leader of an organisation that butchered innocent people who had done him no harm. Personally, I feel the same way about any terrorist organisation that does that, regardless of their cause. |Having to endure hardship is not an excuse for blowing people up. I do hope, as Poplar's original post stated that "peace will follow" and I'd acknowledge there were worse people involved in that conflict than Arafat, but I wont mourn his demise as the passing of a great statesman.

Alright Gazza, then I hope you'd feel the same about the american terrorism around the world as well...

See, in today's civilized world, on the one hand you got some acts that are called "terroristic" and on the other hand you got the same bloody acts but when they're done by the US, they're called "war on terrorism", "war for peace" and "setting the world free". On both accounts, innocent people are being killed. Killed.

I guess life has a different price around the world.

P.S. No pun or anything personal intended either of course, just a remark.

On a very personal note, I married a Dutch/American chick
who happened to own a 'Vette

She was a a '64 model and the Vette was a '72

Good lord, the money I sank into that fricking car to keep her happy. I think we drove it about 8 miles

Let's see....$17000 divided by 8, carry the nine...

She took the fully refurbished and mint condition (on my dime) Vette when she left

And I have been smiling ever since

I remain, your loyal friend

Maxlugar Terrorsits kill innoncent civilians because it's the goal.

When the US or any western country kills innocent civilians it is a horrible accident.

We go far out of our way to make sure that doesn't happen. But it does and it's unfortunate.

For you to make a moral equivilance of the two is just outrageous.

In your honor, Maxlugar, joey and I are having lunch

I believe gypsy is showing up as well

On a side note, the 2001 Firebird is the 2nd fastest
production car outside of the Dodge Viper
