I do ok as a cnc machinist. It helps that I have put in nine years at the same company. I also have a car shop that I do some buying and selling of cars from. If I cant buy low and sell for a profit I don't buy. I also work on friends and families cars.

Tasty cars, those TL's. Especially that generation. Current ones are growing on me but still look a little too 'plush'.

Weekend riding plans? Anyone going to MotoGP over in Indy?

Thought about going up to Ontario and surprising Fred and the goonie, but have doggie issues with a 3 day away Instead, my buddy Pauley and I are going over to the Moto GP tomorrow and watch qualifying, then returning in the afternoon. Leaving OW at 6 AM/Zanesville at 6:30 if anyone wants to go with us. Bryguy is already there. Might stay long enough to buy a new helmet.

I've been posting here a couple of years, I come on here, post stupid questions and snarky comments, snore loudly at campsites, slow group rides to a crawl, post misleading directions on Farneys Tag, obstruct traffic on my bicycle, and what do I get? Inmates, some of whom I've never met, have contributed over $200 dollars to my Pelotonia ride in memory of Carol.

This place is all fucked up.

I think the third generation TL's are some of the best looking cars on the road!

Is this turning into the new AdvOhio thread or something?

Dave is a damn good guy. I would recommend his shop to anyone.

Nice S2000, I've been around Mid-Ohio in one and have taken quite a few labs around the auto cross driving them. They are just nice, flickable, quick cars, and come with the reliability and parts network of a Honda, hard to go wrong.

S2Ks are nice. I always hated the lack of horsepower though. I got my midlife crisis out of the waywhen I was 24. Bought an 02 trans am ram air. As far as roadsters go the Honda is one of the best out there unlessyou really want to spend money.

because you can just run down to the Advance Auto and buy parts for those.

I have always had a soft spot for the Elise though, the lines of it just scream awesome at me.

My next tag is going to have to be in video form. Better yet, I'm going to hide the new tag location within a 9 minute video of me riding around in circles and singing to myself.
