Retirement questions... for those in the know?!

After 2 weeks of training your dad would be a better, faster, harder working barista than 3/4 of the nose-ringed hipster 23 year olds that tend to occupy those places. I may be making this up, but does the Bucks offer health insurance? They do here for sure. But as you mentioned the people that wor...

Forget our Lord and Savior TN, have you heard of our Lord and Savior Taco Bell offering store managers $100k a year. Have him get in on that. Or shit, doesn’t starbuxxx offer even their part time employees full benefits? Work just enough there to stay on payroll and milk their health insurance. Hav...

None of this is a surprise based on our demographic.

I'm going to bed but I'll be back to argue about this tomorrow, it's more interesting than talking about stupid trucks anyway. This is a forum full of rich white dudes, they're not leftists.

So... I'll be taking a look a 16xk mile Fj that is listed at 13k this weekend if it is still around. It is a cali car with maintenance records (shitty but it's something) dating back to day 1.

Compare it to the STI. How's the ride quality? Hows the throttle response? Hows the ride? How are the brakes? What shit trans is in it? 8 speed auto from the silverado and c6? 20mpg seems fine for something that has nearly 3x the displacement of the STI and is being piloted by the GOONSQUAD Compare...

To be 100% honest I am not sure if I have value in the JL. It would be a bit of a compromise as it would be a 2 door soft top with :manuel: but not 100% set on that yet. The FJ has a really nice size and form factor for me, as I don't really need a 4 door but a 2 door is a bit too small. That said....

Did yours have dual exhaust tips or single? I drove a manual one around some rural roads back in the fall and loved it. The shifter felt really good and the auto reply match worked perfectly. I shut it off and had fun doing it my self but in a high traffic area it would definitely come in handy. Pu...

So, the Camerica-o Driving this thing is pretty fun. It’s fucking FAST and sounds good. Handles great. Take off ramps 2x the warning speed with no issue. 245 front 275 rear it feels stable. I’m sure it would oversteer with throttle. More on that in a bit. Steering feels artificial but wheel is smal...
