You know, you can easily disagree with almost everyone here and get away with it. Somehow I've only gotten one warning...the day I almost hit a beagle.

Also, btw, you can satisfy your trolling instincts while sidestepping the trolling rules pretty easily. Instead of writing, "you are a moron," you'd ask politely, "Are you a moron?" Just a little example. HTH!

You didn't eat that thing yet, did you, Kalim? No way all of that is fitting in you anyway! Devious probably has some room inside of him, though! (I can't look, but I'm sure it's there!)

lol, yeah, the vertical hood thing is awesome. So much more space and light to work in the engine bay. The E30 on the other hand you have to remove the hood for any reasonable amount of work.

Too much time and money, and would also embarrass your car in a drag race.

I think you should just work for Mercedes and they should pay you in parts. Apparently money gives you too much choice and you end up buying all sorts of other things instead.

Yeah, I thought that would work, but in 2012 I figured out that moderators and admins don't follow rules or logic to the dot. They, simply do what they feel like doing at the time, and listen to the members that report other members. All of my last sets of warnings and points were labeled "trolling" and not actually insulting or making false information or anything.

I don't spend much money on anything besides my cars and tools. Occasionally money goes into things like food, robot, maintenance for things like my mountain bike, etc...

I found some room, Doug. I can't say in whom or how, but I did.

Speaking of welding, are you doing Nate's E30 subframe, Miles?
I will want the same stuff done when I pull mine out.

Why not just remove it?

Education is overpriced and takes time away from friends. Overall a pretty bad value.

Nope. I credit Kalim for that purchase even though he's had zero requests to have anything welded.

Parents use me as a tax writeoff, so I'm ok with them paying for that for a couple of reasons.
