I know what you mean, but it is a very pretty country. The only problem with China is the Chinese do not trust their own people, maybe that is why I have a good job here. It took me 2 days to convince an English Bannana to allow my chaps to rebuild his BMW engine and he only gave consent on the premise that I would oversee it.

Hi Guys:
Wait a minute... I read the New Member Introductions, and I try to respond if I have something interesting to add, or have questions. Actually there are usually several people lurking here..

I'm somewhat amazed at the number of new members you find here daily. For the most part I'm more a Classic, Collectible and Special Interest kind of car guy. But my wife likes newer iron.. so the E-350 is her's.

dextr3K - - "Banana" - - that is just too funny :LOL: Were you born in Canada? Or were you just forced to grow up there by your Parents? I live in Florida and I've never understood why people lived in the snow and ice.... when it is just so nice a little farther South ;-)

At any rate, it's good to see you here dextr3K

FWIW,
Carl B.

I like newer models mostly, as they are topics of interest, and ones I can usually get my hands on if I so deem. The classics I'll also love, but more childhood fantasy, as I dont see myself driving around in a 65 GTO or Cosmos. I loath 80's 90's era cars, except for the E30 M3 or 190SE, the rest is just butt ugly, sorry lol, I'm entitled to my own opinions right?

And yeah, I was born in china, but moved to canada when I was really young, and snow sports are far superior than anything involving a a wooden stick they call a bat.

The opposite of Banana is Egg, white exterior, yellow fever all the way.
