    Kissimmee 2022 Mecum Auctions

    Aren't something north of 90% of the cars selling? It's rare to see one that doesn't meet reserve.

    Kissimmee 2022 Mecum Auctions

    Why? It's not all that special. The original owner had it built probably within the last year and had all of about $150k into it.

    How about that 2020 Super Snake that sold for $300k? Nuts.

    "I just want to lay on a beach and relax" and other stupid vacations....

    My best vacation ever was a 7 night, 6 day white water rafting trip down the Colorado River. I highly recommend it.

    SVTP stock pick thread.

    After TSMC said they're going to spend $40 to $44B this year on Capex, I bought more FSELX and ASML this morning. Oh, and also bought more AMC... Thank you sir, may I have another...

    Shelby Daytona Pictures

    They're amazing cars, and the reason Shelby won the 1965 World Championship. I was at the reveal for the "Secret Weapon" from Shelby American a few years ago in Monterey. Stretched a few inches to accommodate the 427, it sounded fantastic with the open exhaust. Also a watercolor I have from...

    Carbonized Gray Mach-E GT Performance Edition reserved

    kaz- I got the call from the dealer the day before Halloween and traded in my shit box Focus EV. I was glad to see that turd go down the road. The GT PE is a lot of fun to drive. Not as fun as the supercharged Coyote Shelby, but in some ways it's more fun. I've never driven an AWD vehicle...

    Dang! I've gotten punched by Covid!

    I've had it now for about a week. The weekend was pretty rough with a BRUTAL sinus headache. The past three days have been a medium cold for me, with a semi sore throat and a lot of coughing. 50 and my vaccination was a year ago. My gf is 41 and in about the same condition. Luckily, no...

    Got my car all put together.

    That's pretty awesome. And to think I woke up this morning having all the Lego sets I need. The widebody convertible GT350 might be a good candidate.

    BITCOIN

    What are you guys buying on the dip? I just added to my MSTR and initiated a position in ASML. EDIT: grammar and also bought back into AMC. "Thank you sir, may I have another."

    Awesome! He'll do quite well with that pedigree, regardless of where he chooses to work.

    Tipping restaurant servers

    The company I work for hired 3000+ people last year. Average hourly wage is probably about $75. There's no shortage of great jobs out there if you're willing to try. We don't hire "no skill" folks though. Entry jobs at my company (Lam Research) either require some assembly / technical , or...

    Tipping restaurant servers

    I know of a guy who's about 40 and is content to get what the gov is handing out so he can sit on his ass in a bar all day and live with his folks. People like that can't really be saved. If someone doesn't want the lifestyle improvements that a better job can provide, I'm not sure what can be...

    Tipping restaurant servers

    I was getting a twelve pack at a liquor store a few years ago when I noticed a "tip jar" at the counter. Usually they are March of Dimes or some other charity and labled as such. This one had no label. I asked if it was for a charity or if he just pocketed the money. He grinned with a grill...

    "KR" Edition

    Gary Patterson, President - Shelby American meets with the Ford team on a monthly basis to review strategy, and talk about stuff SAI can do that Ford decided is too expensive, or couldn't get done in time. FWIW, SAI does do a Special Edition GT350. I met a woman from S.C. in August who had...

    "KR" Edition

    Shelby still converted the 13/14's for several years after that point, but they had to make due with what Ford was offering in 2015+. Maybe that's why they were so successful in the truck market. Two out of three Shelby's from SAI these days are trucks. I for one would love to have a Super Baja.

    Mustang Mach E: The Edsel of our generation

    I have a hard time believing a Mach-E sat for 6 months on a lot at a time when people were flying to different states to get them as the became available. But, maybe. Cold weather is a killer as mentioned. Word is the One Pedal Driving works well in the snow though.

    Mustang Mach E: The Edsel of our generation

    No. Semiconductor Capital Equipment. We engineering and manufacture machines that etch trenches in Si or SiC or SiN down to 1 um in size. And, at that size you have to control trench wall profiles to plus/minus a half a degree, and ensure you don't have bowing in 40:1 aspect ratios, and keep...

    Mustang Mach E: The Edsel of our generation

    Volvos are getting $20k ADM's right now? Fun Fact- There is absolutely no comparison between a Volt and a Mach-E. Maybe a Volt and a Focus EV.
