If I told her what happened I'm sure she would change her mind about thinking it was too much for me to get her that car.
The guy I got my Meowta from has a ton of project cars. Way too many. He was trying to sell an FD RX7 with no clear coat'd red paint but with an engine and shit in ok shape for $15K. When he couldn't sell it he ended up trading it to a guy for a Rolex. He then sold the Rolex for about $13K.
ICE ON MAH WRIST, ICE ON MAH WRIST!
This one is worth about $3k less on the used market than I paid for it new. NBD, this was purely a relationship building purchase so I can actually buy a couple more that are worth 1.5 and 2x the MSRP.

Gotta be a preferred customer to get those models when they show up.

Won't pass SMOG testing. :dislike:

:hue:

edit: Actually as a 1966 it doesn't need SMOG testing.. just needs DOT equipment.

Just pay someone to set it up and haul it to tracks for you. All you need to do is arrive and drive.

Meh, not really into that. I'd want to drive it in the mountains and fun roads around home.

We worked with Caterham before and had a pair of cars. I didn't drive them but I should have. I chose to drive the Aventador instead.

Sonos stuff is on a pretty good sale all over. Costco had the play for for $560 and a pair of the play1 for $220. I got mine about 3 months ago and have mixed feelings. The sub is also on a good sale on amazon.

I sprung for the amp to hook my record player up.

What kind of loot did everyone pull in for :mahtroy: Friday this year?

I saw JBL, Sony, Sennheiser, etc had some crazy deals on noise-canceling headphones. Almost picked up a pair but couldn't mentally justify it over my already great earbuds so I just :flaccid: bought replacement earbud foam thingies.

Not much.

I bought charcoal, a propane/map gas fire starter and a specific fan to make the fire hot faster. Oh... I guess I did buy the Cobb AP for the 911 too... so nevermind the not much comment, that shit wasn't cheap like the BBQ stuff.

Nothing here. Browsing amazon for deals today, but not expecting to spend any money. The company I buy protein from is having a 20% off sale, so maybe stock up on 20lbs of whey if I buy anything at all.

I grabbed a cheapo 7 string to be a backup/practice guitar. Needs some work but it'll end up pretty nice for $169. It's crazy to even get a playable brand new instrument for so little.Image

I was actually browsing guitars the other day... there's tons out there for cheaper than when I was really into it 15 years ago, looks like you can get plenty of halfway decent stuff for under $200.

I bought a new bed for our new house... haven't bought much else but have been eyeing washer/dryers, tool boxes, and a few other boring as hell things.

I'd love a sweet set of headphones but just can never really justify the $$$.

Those sennheizer momentums that :waxer: has were around $200. Lots of good noise canceling Sonys at $150 or under. Most were $100-150 off.

Fine, I fell victim.

Bought Diode Dynamics SL1s for my low beams and SLFs for the foglights. :wasteful:
