#3250511 Off Season Projects

Posted by Crixtala on 23 February 2015 - 10:55 AM

My first was a '90 GXL.  Bought it from some Grandma with 27,000 miles in 2004.  I was the greatest thing.  I miss it so much.  I'm trying to find another one with a 5 spd.  I'd love to be able to find a turbo II that needs to be rebuilt for super cheap.  They don't pop up on Craigslist like they used to.  

 

yeah, mine was an auto, but I had already lined up a TII/5-speed swap as well as full suspension... then it was wrecked :(  oh, to be young, have no real expenses and a bright red RX-7... that car was pretty much the only reason I worked at that point in my life haha

 

I recently saw a black 89 TII with rebuilt seals on CL for $7000... drooled over it for a few days before the listing finally dropped off




#3220527 Snow on the way?

Posted by Crixtala on 26 January 2015 - 01:11 PM

had a nice, short blast of a snow shower this morning, but nothing stuck

 

weather's been saying for days now that we'll get some good snow showers tomorrow and again on Sunday (although, it looked less likely last time I looked).  hopefully we get a good snow day or two, it's half the reason I moved to the mountains in the first place

Can we all just step back for a second and marvel at the fact that g5 started a thread and the original post contained more than just a link?

#3070840 Star Wars VII News

Star-Wars-Episode-7-Title-Force-Awakens-


Ever since it was first announced that the Star Wars brand had been purchased by Disney, we’ve only been given minor breadcrumbs regarding what to expect from the future of our beloved Galaxy Far, Far Away. After months of searching, Lucasfilm defied the ongoing battle between Star Trek and Star Wars fans – by hiring J.J. Abrams as the director that would helm the yet-to-be-titled Star Wars: Episode 7. In the months since, we’ve had a look at the cast and heard unofficial rumors about the film’s storyline; yet, even though principle photography on the movie is now complete, we still only have vague ideas regarding what to expect.

However, now that filming is done, Lucasfilm and Abrams have shared one of the most anticipated elements of any in-development Star Wars production, the Episode 7 subtitle “The Force Awakens”. The official Star Wars site shared the news – coupled with a brief congratulations to the filmmaking team for finishing the principle photography stage.

#3069475 Election Day.

Our biggest thing is schools and opportunities for our child as he becomes an adult. We both grew up here and have no love for southern culture and simply don't value the same things the majority of people who live here do. If our family wasn't here it wouldn't even be much of a conversation, we'd be gone.


we were very much the same way... we don't have kids yet, but are at the point where it's a very real possibility. schools here scare the poo out of us

both my wife and I moved to the state at a very young age and are the same way... don't value much of the same thing as those around us, etc.

my wife was born in CO, so it was a very real possibility that we'd go back out that way... it's beautiful country (which means a lot to us) and a culture that we'd be very comfortable with

ultimately, the majority of our family being in state/on the east coast played a major role in our decision, but I didn't want to just give up on the state either. I love everything this state has to offer in terms of mountains, beach, etc. and it would have been difficult just leaving that

Sorry for the response. I normally leave such comments alone when I see them on the huddle.  I've even thought about leaving the huddle because of them... but I decided to stay here so my presence can continue to help move the site in a better direction.
 
The huddle can be a backwoods, God-fearing shithole sometimes, but it won't get any better if I just leave.


exactly

I have the same thought about once a day when I'm on here

nothing wrong with trying to make a place better

Yes, sanctions against Russia also helps driving oil prices down.  Why do you think US increased oil supply like crazy?  US knows exactly what's going on... Flood energy market to the point where Saudi Arabia and other countries have to slash prices and increase output to compete and cause countries like Russia and Venezuela to financially crash because they cannot afford selling energy this cheap.  Obama also sanctioned sales of energy technology to Russia so Russia have to operate with literally one hand tied in this volitile market.


see... Arsen told me so
 

So you're saying "Thanks, Obama!" or are you a communist?

Interesting paradox.


thanks Putin?!?

is it not all a domino effect... I don't know, I just say things sometimes

My husband woke up this morning, read the news and said maybe we should move, which is quiet audacious for my husband


my wife and I had the same discussion when we first started thinking about moving to potentially CO... we decided to stay in state and move to Asheville so we can continue to vote here and help move the state in a bluer direction

NC can be a backwoods, God-fearing shithole sometimes, but it won't get any better if we all just up and leave

My comment was more pointing out the reactionary bias most people carry for their side of the coin.

Something "bad" happens, a facetious "Thanks, Obama!"

Something "good" happens, "Thanks, anyone but Obama!"


my intention would have been the same... then I saw Cam doesn't have it in him to play in the NFL anymore
