    WOW - it's been quiet in here.......

    What's up, fellas?

    How's the weather? It's about 60 and sunny here in Southern VA.

    Did you finish that ________ you were working on? How'd it turn out?



    (Bored at work)

    Speaking for myself, the nice weather makes me want to get outside (and away from the computer).

    It's 54 and sunny here. I've been out of the office most of the day...

    So - help mme out here.

    I recall that Ford owns 60% of Mazda, 40% of Yamaha, 100% of Lotus, and has some ownership or vested interest in Volvo and Renault. Any other Ford partnerships?

    I was just corrected about Ferrari owning Mazeratti on another board.

    VW owns Bugatti (wow!).

    Who else owns who else? Not talking about GM "owning" Chevy, Olds, Caddy, Geo, Buick or Saturn. Not talking 'bout Toyota owning Scion, or Honda owning Acura. What are some others?

    Bored at work here too, but with big troubles. Starter in the truck died in the bank drivethru at lunch, Was at the bank cashing my check and getting the money for the down payment on the wife's new used car, she picked me up on the way to the car lot, got the car, and it broke down on her before she got to back to work. So, now i have my F-250 sitting in the bank parking lot, my wife's new used Volvo 740 sitting on the side of the hiway, and I'm driving the wife's old Suburban w/ 270,000 miles on it, listening to a used car salesman telling me how he's going to "Make it right"!

    Hard to believe in central iowa middle of jan, have seen a couple of farmers doing field work. Drove my streetrod to work today nice coming home, 54 degrees, going to work somewhat cautious hate the thought of dodging a deer with it at 5:00 am. I check in on the site all the time just been busy with other things. Making another sheetmetal bender alittle different in the pivot area will post some pics when I get it done. Everyone take care

    Camaro -

    Bad things come in threes, bro - you had better duck!!!

    That sucks! Honestly, though - be careful with that Volvo. It can run you in the ground with the cost of parts!

    Keep the Suburban around if you can.
