  1. I tend to agree with Meagain about being un-nerved by the two footed brake/throttle technique. I also realize that done properly either method is fine for daily street driving. It bothers me when someone is riding their brake on a purist level, as well as a brake wear level. Personally, I would not teach one foot on the brake and the other on the accelerator to a teen-ager still discovering coordination. I am just as bothered by the slightly resting foot on the clutch pedal, or resting the hand on the shifter. What the hell, move over, I'll drive!

  2. One White Duck 0/10=Nothing at all---Jethro Tull Next: His head did no thinking His arms didn't move except when the wind cut up Rough and mice ran around on the ground He stood in a field where barley grows. ____________________________________________ "I refuse to have anything to do with a ship that is not fast, for I intend to go in harm's way."
  3. had a call once from the New York Times for a subscription just after the fake article scam by the guy who was promoted until found out. told the guy why should i take a paper full of lies and he said "ITS THE MOST RESPECTED PAPER INTHE COUNTRY." I laughed at him and told him how full of it that was, and never to call this number again. So far so good.
  4. back to the future part 3 ok, how about "it's ok, too much lds in the sixties"
  5. The Cure. Robert Smith had a cameo on the South Park "MechaStreisand" episode. Somebody name the tune.
  6. Between the beer and coffee, I am glad to know that I am on the right track.....
  7. I am north of Dallas. Checking on a flight is fairly risky due to thousands standing around(TSA) plus the airline guys. The bigger and heavier, the worse it gets. I once tried to ship a countertop dishwasher by checking it. TSA ripped it open, taped it back, and by the time the airline was through with it it was irreparable.
  8. Bob Dylan for sure---Don't Think Twice, It's All Right.. Now the rovin' gambler he was very bored He was tryin' to create a next world war He found a promoter who nearly fell off the floor He said I never engaged in this kind of thing before
  9. I would get the Quartets but am not close enough for pick-up(insert frowny face here).
  10. Dizzy Gillespie Jam--Montreux '77/Pablo Live--LP Jazz. Played live by the master. Joe Bob says check it out....
  11. Dedicated fans will know about this, but for the curious I say check out "Wheels of Fire." If you can find it, it is a great documentary of the sport from the 70's....
  12. Interesting that the non-Europeans are using such light weight oils. My older Bmw's specify 20w50w, and the oil level light will actually come on in the 325i if too thin is used. They both (other one is 320i) have over 180k miles with no problems. I agree with an earlier post about not switching to synthetic in higher mileage older engines, having heard many stories of new found leaks from others who have.
  13. While we are on the subject of clean cars, can someone recommend a product for rubber? I have restoration rubber mats for my 70 Beetle (in lieu of carpet) and the black rubs off on whatever you put on it. Thanks.
  14. Maybe something stronger could really hold me down. _____________________________________________________ There is no future, and England's dreamin'
  15. Unforgiven----"We all got it comin' kid." Love that movie.
  16. This one was done fairly recently, jogging my memory enough so that it was easy... Blinded By the Light--Mannfred Mann and Springsteen Another easy classic: Yeah, you got, satin shoes Yeah, you got, plastic boots
  17. I don't know for sure, but it is definitely a good start.
  18. Regarding the members here being cheap-skates comment makes me wonder if that is a psychological factor of forums such as this one. There is a marque specific car forum that i subscribe to that seems to agree that people who own the things are also frugal. Perhaps it is not the owners as a group, but the ones who frequent the forums as a group? In other words, the true fanatics of the product as opposed to the ones with a month's supply of underwear? Anyway, Dr.Fish, go for them, I would. Use whatever strategy you feel comfortable with, and yes, these will probably go for around 3g's+/-.
  19. I was "sketched out" by this too, especially combined with the western culture references. My first (paranoid) thought was "Crap! I hope my firewall and virus protection is working for me. Then I changed back to the Klipsch site.
  20. Jay it is a slippery slope towards invalidating not only civil rights but the entire constitution when using the logic that "the reason xxx is now out-dated." George did come back and burned the White House down if I recall history correctly. Bearing arms is a right, but I would also agree that "well regulated" can and probably should mean at least a modicum of responsibility.
  21. Unknown Soldier--The Doors I feel her gently sighing as the evening slips away. If only you knew what's inside of me now You wouldn't want to know me somehow
  22. I'm painting my room in a colorful way, and when my mind is wandering there I will go
  23. Does'nt Starker look like Dieter's (Mike Myer's Sprockets) older brother?
