Planelopnik at WorldRX This Weekend: "What is that, a plane for ants?" Edition Planelopnik at WorldRX This Weekend: "What is that, a plane for ants?" Edition

Planelopnik will have to fill in for me, but I believe it was a Piaggio of some type? Flying out of KAUS on Sunday afternoon. Nifty looking, anyway.

That's a lot of mileages That's a lot of mileages

257k miles on a 2012 Raptor, and it really doesn’t look worse for the wear.

I've bought a thing

1985 RX7 set up for Spec RX7. Grabbed it for a song along with a trailer that just needs a touch of work and should be able to be flipped.

What on earth.... What on earth....

Is this steering wheel? Taken from a Craigslist ad for an FC RX-7. It’s a portrait-oriented rectangle, I’ve never seen anything like it!

I've made a huge mistake I've made a huge mistake

By not returning to Le Mans this year. Having a buddy there this year who is aping my itinerary and is hanging out in the United Autosport garage on behalf of a friend of ours who is racing for UA in LMP2 isn’t helping.

Private Party Sale of Non-Collectible $50,000 Car Private Party Sale of Non-Collectible $50,000 Car

Looking for some input on helping a friend move a vehicle. 5 second photoshop of a 635 Ti for your time.

Lost my mind and did a thing Lost my mind and did a thing

’04 996 40th anniversary car with the X51 package. I’m now the moron who bought a 113k mile 996, albeit a very clean example with a long service history and all of the appropriate recent services (clutch, IMS, water pump, coolant hoses, oil separator, etc). I’ll now begin holding my breath.

Watched Atomic Blonde Watched Atomic Blonde

Fun enough movie, and the car selection was delightful, but I had to pause the movie when I ran across this scene with the Alfa Montreal, which I had been waiting to see the entire time.

Still avoiding work Still avoiding work

And boy do I suddenly need a 996 in this color

I know I just got through a soul crushing deadline I know I just got through a soul crushing deadline

Because all I want to do is play around in Photoshop instead of work on the pile of shit I neglected for the past two weeks.

And there's half-post at the Rolex 24 And there's half-post at the Rolex 24

Been tuned in for about 9 of the 12 hours. Wife hasn’t complained once, but she put up with sitting in the Mulsanne woods at 3am last summer, so if that didn’t trigger a complaint I’m not sure what would.

This isn't political

70% of households took the standard deduction on their Federal tax under the old standard deduction amounts.

Found on Craigslist: Stagea 260RS - $19k Found on Craigslist: Stagea 260RS - $19k

Much to my chagrin, Houston does have some pretty cool cars from time to time on account of being a port city. On the other hand, this is a completely ruined, hideous example, so....Houston gonna Houston.

Can't believe I'm saying this Can't believe I'm saying this

But I test drove this 996 Turbo yesterday and I’m suddenly questioning whether I need to spend 40% more on a Turbo than a base C2 to gain a whole bunch of speed and grip that I’ll use about 20% of on a regular basis. Age is catching up to me and I don’t appreciate it.

Edit: Ignore me, hadn’t put the car in neutral from 5th after breaking the pulley bolts free, for I am Costanza, lord of the idiots.
