Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

There are deadass kids that have never fucking seen a dollar bill. What the fuck even is this coming generation. 

 

There are people our age-ish that couldn't operate a fucking newspaper if their life depended on it

To be fair, who buys newspapers anymore? Can’t read them while driving, need two hands.

Maybe it's because I grew up with them, but I don't understand kids who don't know how to operate a VHS recorder or a DVD player.

There are people that have refused $2 bills because they don't know that they exist and and think they are fake. I've had people refuse $1 coins because of not knowing they exist.

 

I had an older gentleman use one at a gas station and the clerk (appeared 16-18 years old) wouldn't take it and claimed it was fake, worst part was the shift manager thought so too. The store manager came out and told him not to worry about paying for his drink and took them to the back (he wasn't happy).

 

Side note: I actually love news papers. I still have a local subscription.

Yep, my wife works at a financial institution and they have had members and even some businesses call to ask if it was legal tender. They have even had a member come in and call the cops on the credit union because the member thought they accepted fake currency.

 

A gentleman came in and deposited roughly a $100s worth of $2 bills a couple old $500 bills and one bill with Mr. Cleveland Grover (extra credit if you know the denomination without looking it up) on it and she was being a bit nosey and listening in. The local sheriffs department showed up and the actual sheriff came along told the lady to brush up on her history and money knowledge, then walked out.

I've actually had to block bringatrailer.com at my router level because far far too many Italian exotics show up for auction there, and I have enough problems in my life (I'm looking at you 308GT4, Saturn Sky) to add more to my life....

 

It's an addiction, and I need help.

Nope. They exist. ‘Wow look mom a magic ticket!’

 

its why i get tilted when Imad says he hates cash. ‘Why would you want cash?!’

 

because banks close, ATMs break, wallets with your card get stolen. Money is green. 

 

Its happened multiple times to my mom and step dad, they’re going to pay bills online and the bank frose everybody’s accounts at the whole bank, because they were doing network maintainence. And had to not have the numbers change, so nobody could use their money. Fuck that, I’ll stick to mostly cash and only deposit about half of it. I’ve had fewer break ins than I’ve had bank issues.

have multiple banks. It's almost like the incentive cloud storage... it costs too much for one person to build up the data retention and redundancy that a large cloud storage provider already has. so might as well just use/trust the cloud storage provider..

The problem with keeping half your money at home is eventually half your money may become a significant amount. now you have to worry about splitting up your money in different physical locations, buying safes and bolting them down, keeping up with the news and making sure no one can easily bust open your safe with a paper clip, etc. etc.

Early on it's fine. later on it'll become a problem.  more trouble than it's worth... just have multiple banks.

 

or live off bitcoin.. but that's not a thing yet sooo

i'll use my card for anything over like 20 dollars, but I keep a small wad of 1s and 5s in case i wanna buy some quick shit. Also I always pay for gas in cash because I can avoid paying those stupid fees for using card.

You don’t have petrol cards in America? Some companies provide their own credit card for their stations, you get discounts for using them. I save around 20c/l.

Most gas stations here have their own rewards cards and some offer credit cards, not counting Costco or Walmart.

they do, but only some companies have them, like the more expensive brands like chevron and shell have them, but any discount you get is negated by the already astronomical prices you pay per gallon, at least like 20 cents a gallon.

i would love to fill up at costco since they're almost always the cheapest in town but 2 things.

 

1. i don't have costco membership :/ 

2. even if I got my hands on one, the pumps don't take cash so double :/

Need a sad emoji for your petrol prices. Then I realize mine are higher anyway. Although not sure. I think it’s around $0.75/l for diesel. I think a gallon is 4.7l?

I'm sure they do but its pretty common to stop at different stations depending on where you drive to regularly. I usually go to Shell but I might stop at a Towne Pump if I'm going to Eugene last min or if I'm going to Washington or California who knows where I'm stopping.

It's already a decent amount. Don't have to bolt a safe down if its too big to carry in the first place. I already have multiple banks but this is the way I do it because it works for me.

Usually the one I have my card for is the cheapest by like 20c anyway, as it’s all unmanned stops. Some of them are just diesel, which is fine for me.

Car came in overheating so bad I could hear the oil boiling like a deep fryer inside the engine. Blew the radiator hose and neck off the radiator. Must have been like 400 degrees!
