    Remember I said:

    And how I was all like

    And when I said

    As if I wanted a cruiser Mustang?


    Forget that

    My boss just pulled his car up at closing, revved it up to grab my attention from inside, and waved for me to come out. He gets out, says get in, and walks to the passenger side. It was a supercharged ~2009 Saleen S281 that he just rebuilt this spring to make more power (after breaking it, of course). There were blue gauges in my face. It had wide open electric cutouts. It had a grabby clutch that was practically just on/off. I stalled within 10 seconds. And omfg I need this one. Forget the refinement of the 15. Forget the mediocre grumble of the RS3. Forget the "world class" design quality of the 15's interior. Forget all that. I have a daily already. Compared to this Saleen, I have two dailys. I want the power. All of it. The poor guy was so scared. He really doesn't let anyone else drive his car, but I guess he trusts me a whole lot. The rear end kicked out a couple times (700+ hp, drag radials, moist roads) and he probably pictured me wrecking his baby. I did about a mile roundtrip and I felt like I was doing a test run for SuperSpeeders or something with the sound, the body, the blue gauges in my face... I did not and still do not feel excitement though. Just determination to get something equally as muscular because I need it.

    I'm in love with a [tire] stripper.

    Edit: I think this is actually the one I drove, pre-rebuild

      early S197 front end

      early S197 rear end


      the Saleen is a fine car, its just not for me...

      My 76 yo uncle has a 2005 Extreme. It has 550hp stock. It's not a drag car though. That's sacrilege.

        That gives you more time to drive that nice car.

        Does anyone else have someone at IP address 77.247.181.163 trying to guess your password and login as you? A Google search of that IP has some tales of whoever is at this IP trying to impersonate and defame folks on forums and through e-mail.

        "The Project Honey Pot system has detected behavior from the IP address 77.247.181.163 that is consistent with that of a Comment Spammer and Rule Breaker."

        Sounds like preschool/Elf rules.

        The first and ~10th links in Google results says it's used as a proxy/Tor/VPN exit node, so there's practically no data on the actual user's IP and there's probably dozens of people tunneling through that address at any given time. It also probably cycles through a few different IPs anyway. But to answer your question, no warnings about failed logins here

        what is to gain from that. I usually can see why someone is hacking. But to just log in as me and post some BS seems like no gain is made for the hacker. Seems like to much work to make some random dude look like an asshat on a forum.

        My guess is it just a test of their abilities to then try more complicated login attempts.

        here are some with strobes and flash guns.

        Here is a Pagani I shot 2 years ago with a kit lens and a single flashgun. I look back now and think of all the things I could have done to make it sooooo much better. Still a sweet opportunity.
