Apr 2nd 2011 6:25AM Hey look! Another coupe coming to market that "they" can chop the top off to make a faux spyder. Lordy, was THAT practice just so lame...only in the '70s and '80s...
Apr 2nd 2011 6:22AM Oh, and I forgot to mention that after all these decades I STILL really dislike the U.S. regulated headlamp bezels. But I suspect with this car's provenance and cache that no future owner would EVER think to replace them with the European pieces.
Apr 2nd 2011 6:17AM Not quite...for MY 1970 the engine displacement was identical between the T and S. However the engine TUNING (as well as some key engine components) was different between the two models, along with additional differences in other areas of the car.
Apr 1st 2011 9:02PM Maisy: your comment is spot-on...at least with me. When I was knee deep into collecting sports memorabilia it was indeed as much about the hunt than it was about anything else. Once I cherished the conquest of finding and then negotiating for a particular object and then to have it in hand, it becomes something of a 'now what?' scenario. If there was any "hoarding" per se, it was typically in the form of picking multiple copies of certain pieces (like a specific sportscard) to use as future trading bait or a flip for quick cash later on. Not much different than buying stocks, if you ask me...
With the ones I did end up keeping for 'the collection', the piece customarily goes in a box or a safe and somewhat pathetically (I admit) is ticked off the search list and otherwise forgotten. Nowadays it's less this way (gun collecting), mainly because I can actually use and interact with what I collect rather than merely admire (if that) the particular baseball card or autographed basketball jersey that's shielded and protected behind an impersonal piece of acrylic or glass. Besides, things that go 'boom' can be a lot of fun to almost all us boys (and quite a few gals, too), no matter how OLD we are. :)

Jan 2nd 2011 10:17PM Jones Soda has always been more than a little nuts. Probably next for them is to do a drink that tastes like cheese, probably Roquefort or some pungent blue.
Dec 5th 2010 1:02AM Only egocentric idiots with zero sense of value would buy this stuff. At least their peddlers can have a great laugh all the way to the bank, especially for a device nearing the END of its product cycle.
Aug 24th 2010 1:47PM Well considering that he was buck naked, "three point stance" could take on a whole different meaning in some minds...(ahem)
Jul 31st 2010 3:34PM Some people apparently don't have a life themselves as to tell others to stop doing likewise...either that or their prescription meds have stopped working.
