WFM2018: THE POWL - It's time to choose who is the worst of us all!

It was an easy vote for me. The only one I know personally is Mr. Zillion, who's a pleasant guy, but when I had the occasion to briefly meet a couple of other DFDers, they were slightly more pleasant the Blondie Mx5ington. That makes Blondie the biggest dick that I know in the forum, albeit by a nos...

Timepiece Nerdery

Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk It's a Panerai knock-off. It looks just like a PAM movement, at least at a glance. I've never opened a Panerai, so I can't attest to its' accuracy. It's not a run-of-the-mill Seagull. On another note, If you're a fan of the cushion case that Panerai is famous for,...

Dunno if I've posted here before: please forgive if senile McGillicutty repeats himself. I'm a big mechanical watch nerd, and sometimes enjoy working on them. Occasionally, I'll buy a lot of broken vintage watches on eBay and try my hand at fixing them. my success rate is about as good as a MLB batt...

In celebration of the beater

When I was 18, I bought my first car: $800 in crumpled up ones bought me a 1970 Fiat Spyder. I loved that car more than any object I've owned before or since. It was a piece of shit, and I was James Fucking Bond. I have spent a lifetime, and larger and larger sums of money trying to rekindle that le...

Congrats Mr. Zillion! I am disappoint that you're selling the Germano-Limey funbox, but I guess the prevailing DFD opinion is the most rational. The cost-of-ownership delta alone should finance a modest vacation (cue the theme song to Dutch Wonderland).

False. Keeping both is not silly. If you can swing it, and you don't anticipate coming home to the wife-throwing-your-shit-onto-the-front-lawn scene, go for it! Don't try to rationalize it as a financial play, or justify it as sober because you have indoor storage for it on the dark side of the moon...

Anyone been to Yosemite?

Yosemite is the jewel of the planet. Period. No disappoint. Your timing is a little early, however. There are a number of attractions in Yosemite, and it's too early in the year to see most of them. The main valley will be open, and the roads clear. That is the glammiest and most jarring of the vist...

Congrats! E30s are NOT overrated. I had a 87 325is. Bought it with 170k miles, sold it with 230k miles. Nothing broke. Nothing. Brake pads tires and fluids. I've had a lot of cars, and that was a top 5, without a doubt. I've posted this before (in the old DFD), but I'll repost. I did a build for a n...

Looks-n-sounds like R is in great shape. Keep, don't trade (especially for something else used): it's the devil you know and love.

Anything up to 3" of snow is quite okay. Turn off DSC and take it slow in the snow. Global warming will take care of the rest. Thanks, Crooked Hillary.
