    Same here. I considered a Vette, or I would really like a Cayman, but neither would be ideal for me as a single vehicle, I'd need to have something else, probably a truck, and that adds even more expense for maintenance, insurance, etc.

    For now I'm good with a sport sedan with space for 4 passengers, or loaded up with golf clubs or boxes of network equipment for work, or filled with gear for car camping. Put snow tires on it for the winter and it is a blast to drive year round too. Don't think I would want to drive a Vette in the winter......

    Call me Mr Practical LOL.

    When I win the lottery ima have a McLaren. Maybe tonight's draw! :headbang:

    Well I got the Hemi all put back together. Unfortunately she won't start. Engine sounds fine and tries to start but stumbles and stalls. Checked codes, got P0123 and P0222, both have to do with the throttle body. Realized the throttle body is making one hell of a racket when I turn the key to on. Confirmed that all wiring to the throttle body is in good shape. Checked and rechecked all wiring and vacuum lines, etc and everything is fine. I'm having it towed to the chrysler dealership tomorrow so they can initiate a re-learn on the ECM for the throttle body and possibly replace it if it got fucked by moving it 10 ft still attached to the intake. Pretty frustrated at this point but it's out of my hands.

    I just paid off my 2015 Honda Fit LX. One of the most boring Hondas on the market, but damn getting 40 MPG is great.

    Excellent city car and hatchback, more than enough to take you to point A to point B. I really like that I can remove the rear seats completely so I can haul crap in it. This feature alone saved my butt multiple times at Ikea. The best part is I got it for a deal back in Jan 2015. Gas was cheaper, it was the end of the month, and no one was buying hatchbacks since AMERICA SUVs/TRUCKs FOR LIFE. Got mine out of the door with new tags for $18.3k. All auto, no sunroof (which is fine with me, they do leak in time).

    At the local casino. THIS IS VALET!!! LOL. Always nice cars here. 20180831_211132.jpg

    Blue M6 is me, but some really nice cars. Nice rolls, AMG GT, and a Bentley off to the right.

    Now, if only the baccarat tables are good to me tonight.

    Should have fucking stayed home. I hate that casino, they don't even give free drinks. I ordered a rum and diet coke, paid for it, plus I was up at the time so I dropped a ten spot for a tip for the cocktail waitress. Poor girl, she was so grateful for a nice tip, the way she made it sound, it was the best tip she ever received. I wouldn't doubt it with some of the people that live here. There are definitely some very seedy individuals at casinos in general, but this one seems to be worse than normal. I was done in literally 40 minutes. Not my best night. Do instead of throwing more cash on the table, I left. Not the most of ever lost, and sadly, not even the quickest I've ever lost. I was frustrated and was down to my last $400 of my $1500 in chips, bet player, and of course I lost. Did something similar last time I went. I was so frustrated then too. The pit boss was trying to tell me to slow down, but I wasn't having it that night. Fortunately, I placed a nice bet, $2000, and won. Started throwing it back, so smartly that night I left. If I won my $400 bet tonight, I would have doubled down and left after that, win, lose or draw. My partner is still there playing blackjack. Hoping he wins, and he does win quite often, and always breaks me off with some of his winnings. He's bad though, he plays 2-3 hands at once, bets the odd side bets too. A few years back he won $75k in a few hours in Atlantic City. He goes on streaks. He's been on a good one now for a few months. Won $15k last time we went too.

    Car in shop. Been giving me drive train malfunction, going into limp mode. Misfiring, need new plugs, and something with the fuel system too. Plus, major oil leak. Fortunately, under warranty aftermarket. Zero deductible. Fixing a few other things too. Hopefully won't be long...damn BMW's.
