    Did I ever tell you I extract liquified $hit out of dwellings in what appears to be a steadily growing and secure market?

    All bull$hit aside Talon, I hope you get a Viper AND a woman. That'd be two Vipers technically....

    Ive got one lined up, needs a little work, 1.5 hours away, under $30k, waiting on all my 'debt' to clear to $0 so my debt-income ratio doesnt look like Rosie O'Donnell.

    Are you talking about a Viper or a Fuqqbot 900?

    Took the trek tonight to see it, sat in the drivers seat and got my first ride ever. Gonna take this baby home come hell or high water.

    Impressions:
    What the heck is everyone so afraid of?
    Hot? Not from where i was sitting.
    Loud? Barely.
    Hard to get in and out of? Pfft...
    No foot room? Again, i scoff.

    Lol, not the last time I drove it. 660cfm turbo at 28psi on 116 octane Torco. Broke the welded center diff and was rwd lol. Could smoke the rears at 70mph. Scared a blowmaro on the highway the first time I did it, he backed off really fast.

    Nope, I knew how to tune and port the exhaust side so it flowed very well. In 5th gear I could have 18psi (street setting) at about rpm. It was close to 400tq. But regardless, I'm not afraid and I quite sure i can handle it.

    It's the torque that surprised me. I wound up looking at oncoming traffic while simultaneously being slapped in the face when I decided to floor it on my way home from dinner with the wifey. But you won't have to worry about the woman part.....

    Talon, I'm having a little get together this coming weekend here at my place with some of the local car guys. Didn't know if you would possibly be in the area but you are more than welcome to attend. It would be a great opportunity to mingle after you finished the weeding and mulching.

    I'm currently designing an insert for a defibrillator. It will snugly replace the stereo deck that you guys no longer use. It's gonna be HUGE

    I've also been working on a medicine dispenser that is built into the stanchion, and disposable seat covers for when you have those "little daily accidents".

    On a positive note, got the word yesterday from the bankruptcy court that ALL of my debt is confirmed to be paid (aside from my mortgage which wasnt part of the Chap 13), so knowing this is a bit of a giddy feeling alone and aside from the impending possible Viper purchase. I. Can. Not. Wait.

    It would not be my first choice to get a Viper from bankruptcy court, but what the hell, go for it.:D
