Wow. Kind of a shame to do that to a '73 XJ12, but I can't really blame them since that V12 sucked horribly. The SBC should be making about the same power, lawl.

how long have you been leaking badly? the oil will deteriorate all the bushings it contacts if left too long.

so the project i was waiting on... yet another delay...

but a company i worked for before emailed me about a project starting right away on monday
and the pay is a little higher
so i have much more confidence in this company since there is a proven track record whereas the other company is a new one to me

but... i would have to go against a korean company again (last time i was on apple's side against samsung)

it's not a big deal at the moment... and i need to go with whoever pays
but this could come back to haunt me later if i want to do serious work in korea later on
but ... i don't have the luxury of just sitting around and picking my jobs right now

As a lawyer, you should already know that you can spin going up against those Korean companies in a pretty positive light later on.

Go with the sure thing.
