I've been working at home for the past week. It's actually working out well.
We're doing split shifts, mine is 4am to 12pm.
I like getting off work at noon.

Re: Merkur Saves the Day Again!

Well... Governor J.B. has put Illinois on lockdown until April 7. My car is in storage at the county fairgrounds and due to get out on March 28. Awaiting word on what's up. If I were betting, I'd bet it now comes out on April 11, which would be fine. Could be worse. Guy I work with is coming back fr...

Re: Car Show Season

Just curious: I thought all '89's got the mesh wheels. My '88.5 had them. Are these 'spats' original with this car? The mesh wheels are in boxes in my basement. They're in excellent condition, but IMO they don't look that great and they're a pain in the butt to clean. I bought the spats from Craig ...

Re: Here's a unique item.

OMG, yours for the low, low price of $3,000... :haha The gold's worth $2K. Diamonds, not much. It's $1000 for the Cartier box. The gold I'll agree with... but you're not selling that box for $1,000. Its worth is tied to what's in it, which is an extremely limited market... Many times the Cartier na...

It's not the only one. This is not the same ring, it's a bigger, better one, complete with Cartier box. https://www.eba...

Plaid pants, white belts and white shoes weren't part of the Merkur sales guy dress code.
