    Exactly why I haven't pursued an MR2 for awhile.

    I sold my RX7 FD for almost $20k...that was in 2011 or 2012 and it was a '93 so you can imagine what they're asking now.

    Z32 TT's or 3000GT VR4 also fetch a lot of money.

    if i can find a rust free one for cheap enough with fucked up paint or a blown motor that doesnt bother me.. it'll likely be getting the full treatment with hakone green and obviously a new shiny 3.5l v6

    im hoping to get one before they get too expensive. i love those little buggers. so much fun.. the v6 would just make it perfect. less weight, more power.

    I passed on one because I was an idiot and was making fun of non V8's

    My bestfriend was offering it to me for $1k and I passed.

    There is a lady named "Liz" at my local O'Reilly that knows how to find parts better than anyone I've worked with there. She is fast and accurate. Then there is another guy who is friends with my son. He would come over and work with us when he was in HS. He's good. New people -- take your chances.

    The guys at Advance have all been there for years. I've been a customer at the same store since it opened. When I pull up, and they are not busy with another customer, they already have my name entered and have the menu open for whatever I'm driving. Sometimes I don't always drive the car that need parts for. But I appreciate the thoughtfulness.

    NAPA people have been there for years. Though when not buying for Chevy it will be a special order.

    Autozone has tremendous turnover. I don't think I've see the same person behind the counter twice.

    There was an online Infiniti Dealer in Matthews NC that had the best price on Nissan parts in the country. That was providing Infiniti had a Nissan equivalent part number. They had customer service down to a science. They had a customer care phone system system that recognized my cell number, had my name and address stored, along with vehicles with VIN numbers. Just I just need to call, they took it from there.

    When I would call the parts department, they would answer the phone: Good Afternoon Mr. S.... Are we working on the Q45 or I30 today? The personalized service would just blow me away. It was all made possible by their phone system being connected to their customer care and parts system.

    How do you make a mask? I don't think I have mask here for anything. I bet everything in town is sold out. Maybe a place like Sherwin Williams Paints might have a painters mask. I do have some blue shop towels. Maybe that with some masking tape will work.

    I do need to go to Harbor Freight -- though that would be the last place where I would want to go. The place is creepy enough as it is.

    If you're seeing the large black and yellow Carpenter Bees around your house you may have Larvae in stud walls. Or just a Stoopid Woodpecker.

    I haven't noticed any bees. It was here this time last year. I had new soffits and trim installed last summer along with a roof. It didn't come back until recently. I may need to get a plastic owl or hawk and put it on the roof scare it away. LOL

    If push comes to shove, I'd try to find a way besides killing it. BUT if you have no other option, this thing has been decently accurate download.jpg
