I was ready to buy one. Dealer wanted $58... I scoffed and told them to call me when they are selling under MSRP.
I live in the country. Around here, $100k will buy you 2500 sf... In great shape with a yard.. Haha.
When I’ve gotten flats, they normally take the wheel off, replace the tire, and put it back on. Other times they’ve towed me.
Most people can’t even change their own tire anyway... Why include them?
I’ve taught at three schools and two had explicit points in the adjunct contract requiring you to have full time employment in order to adjunct.
That’s actually why I dropped out of my PhD program from a tier 1 institution. When I ran an environmental scan of academia I realized real quick it’s an awful career field. Full time faculty is in decline, tenure is almost obsolete, and there’s too many colleges for a shrinking student base...
This is a valid point and speaks to a larger issue in education... We tell people to study what interests them and not what we need In our workforce. The result is unemployable students with massive debt somehow convinced that the degree will prove to employers that they are “trainable”, but employers don’t want…
I have no sympathy. The definition of an adjunct professor is someone who is otherwise employed and teaches a class here or there for the University. I was an adjunct for many many years, and most schools I’ve worked with have explicit rules requiring you to have full time employment outside of the school. I’m very…
I don’t normally buy new cars, but I’m tempted by these. For the price, man... They aren’t too bad.
And the kicker is maintenance. I’ve had 5 digit repair bills on other exotics. New cats on a ferrari can run you over 10 grand.
I don’t really have a problem with the auctions.
I mean seriously, 100 people want a car, and there is only 1 car. What is the “most fair way” to distribute that car? I would say an auction is the best. I really don’t see the huge issue there.
This has nothing to do with guns. It has to do with evil people and criminals. The fact that people actually think gun control can possibly prevent instances like this literally boggles my mind.
I cried a little when I read this.
I was going to buy a C7, but I’m 6'9". I fit in the C5 OK so I figured the c7 would be good too :(
Whats your definition of fragile?
I did 120k on my C5 and no repairs cost more than 1-2k. Probably spent less than 5 grand on it to get it to 120k. Loved it.
Now I have a ferrari. No repairs cost less than 3k. I have 20k on it and have spent more than 20 grand on it. Love it.
I can’t get over how durable the vette is for…
I love vettes and I’d drive one as a DD, but you may be missing who buys many of these:
Vettes have always been the blue-collar retirement machine, and when your 65 years old, sometimes its not easy and convenient for you to get into one.
You buy it anyway because you’ve spent 40 years DREAMING of the day you could buy…
I’ve built my own engine block before. It was my capstone engineering project. It was a 1 cylinder, about 50cc or so. Its definitely possible.
The biggest issue isn’t that you want to build your own, but rather HOW you want to build your own.
you see, the real challenge is making it LIGHT and DURABLE.
I know you said you…
I was interested in buying this but... Good clutch on an automatic?
In Ohio, most people I sell cars to tell me they don’t need it notarized... Heck one guy told me he didn’t even need me to sign the title. I feel like something shady is going on but I can’t figure out what.
1. I bought a jeep cj7 for $200 on CL... It didn’t run but when I got it home I put gas in it and magically it ran fine.
Because there’s no better alternative.
