    Invasion markings? For the invasion of where? The -58 is a slick bit of work, however it's painted.

    Gotta love the large amplitude inputs to keep the pointy end forward. Looks like a lot more fun than the desk.

    Is Ellon Muske attenssion hoarre?

    Is he today's Howard Hughes? If he announced he was going to mine the seafloor for manganese, would you believe he's crazy enough to attempt it?

    Lost me in the first scene when he pulled up on the wrong side of the road. Completely lost me when he departed with a J-turn. The goal of a get-away driver is to get away quickly without attracting unnecessary attention, isn't it? The cinematography was lovely though.

    I suppose you could average the bearings. Good luck.

    UFOs: Jeff, IB, need mil pilot-speak translation

    Most of the wildlife is outside the ring. They've got a lot of land around the ring and offshoots. They used to let you in the door pretty easily. I went back a couple of years after doing a stint there and they had turned up the security immensely. Once I got inside I asked around to see why. Some yahoos came in and stole a bunch of copper from the magnet factory. (B.I.G. magnets all over the place.) The guys at the scrapyard thought the transaction it was a little funny so they called the lab and somebody went out with a Griger counter. The stuff was hot as hell. I hope some of the yahoos sat on the load on the way to the scrapyard.

    And a very happy new year to you, Hobot. You are a bright spot in a stormy sea.

    I miss it, but I don't miss all the maintenance. Don't have time for that much wrenching in this phase of my life. "There are two types of Italian car guys: the ones with busted knuckles and grime under their fingernails; and the ones who wear ascots and want to tell you about their mechanic named Tony. Only one of these types is worth listening to." With practice I go tot the point where I could remove and install the transmission in one evening.... With practice. I'm starting to think Miata.

    Don't know if it's Rock (and don't care), but it is one hell of an intro.

    Mine was a '74. You had to work on it three nights a week if you wanted to drive it on the weekends.
