Nice!


Just put a deposit down on a brand new Porsche and mentioned it on Facebook. I said, "I can't wait for the new 911 to arrive!" Next thing I know 4,000 f**king Muslims have added me as a friend!

Re: 1981 Nomura Racing

My favorite color, BLUE.  Thanks for all of the comments, appreciate hearing from members.
Finish is polished, not ball burnished.  I lucked out and found the Bottema's at the last minute
and then thought they were lost in shipping, finally after seller refunded purchase price, they
showed up and I sent funds back to him, needless to say we were both happy and relieved.
