Re: What do you drive???

Still having fun with the FJ40. Lately the roof has come off, a half tailgate installed, and a front axle rebuild is in progress.

Re: New Tag Heuer Carrera 'Fragment' LE

I'm sure this means Tag will come out with many more non-LE and LE Carreras just like this, as they did with the Autavia.

Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

I have a 73 FJ40. Pics? I'll snap one this weekend. It is a turd that needs a ton of work, but the body is mostly original and untouched without a lot of rust. I plan to do a rear disc conversion (front already done), clutch work and some new wheels/tires in the coming month to make it street worth...

    The ST and U1P are my favorite modern Speedy and favorite U1 iterations. I like those two so much it's ridiculous.

    I don't know anything about how these new Red Bar chapters work, all I know about is the original NYC Red Bar. It's not "exclusive" and it doesn't matter how expensive your collection is. I'd just assume that what some people are perceiving as exclusivity is just these chapters taking some security...

    Just can't get fired up about watches anymore.... Prices are stupid these days, especially in the vintage market. I just can't get my head around 4-6X the price I paid a couple years ago. New watches seem to be pushing the envelope and on top of that I'm just not inspired by much. Anyone else feeli...

    The watch is fine but I just don't get the coffee thing. If they dropped that shtick I'd like the watch more.
