No I think Hillary could have been a great president. Britain was not perceived to be weak under Maggie, so that perception can be out the window.
Hillary I think is backing out as we speak. Will see tomorrow!

Ouch! Please post an "after" photo if you ever get there...

They do not disrespect me in any way.

In the same token, I am not saying a woman can't do the job of president. I'm not saying America couldn't/wouldn't respect a woman-president. My problem is that given today's political climate WORLD WIDE, women are not considered equal in too many other countries. Specifically, countries where we potentially could have problems. MAJOR problems. In come countries, woman are still not allowed to vote. Hold title to property. Hold certain jobs. Are we supposed to assume those same countries will have as much respect for America if it were run by what others consider 'inferior persons?'
Do we really want 'respect' from countries that do not allow women to vote or even own property, countries that consider women 'inferior'?

When you serve tea to those Pakistani investors instead of sitting at the table as an equal you are just furthering their perception of women as inferiors. Thanks for setting all of us back 100 years.

I don't like tea, but you can make my coffee should our paths ever cross.

I have one that is in good shape so that is not an issue. There are a couple of reasons for rebuilding the Katrina car.

First, I want to showcase what our shop can do. A "if we can make a 100% car from a former submarine, think what we can do for your car".

Second, there were only 1504 of these imported into the US. A car that was built as a partnership between Benz and Porsche is a rare deal and thank goodness the good stuff is still good. The motor, with the exception of two pistons is in great shape. Tranny, which is stock MB, was trash but that is not a problem. Its Valve Body [the tranny brain] is the only expensive 500E part that will cost a bit more.

Third, we have a couple of magazines that are interested in this project and a couple of companies that want to showcase some of their performance products that will enhance the 100% restoration and turn it into a restomod. It will still be able to be taken back to pure stock at any point.

So, to buy a true 100% car would take about $25K+, more than the "looks great"$15K cars that show up on the boards and ebay and autotrader. 100% means everything is AS NEW. Those are very hard to find and easier to build.

Madeleine Albright, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Shirley Temple Black, even Condoleezza Rice have been able to negotiate those diplomatic waters for well over a quarter of a century without problems. I say "even" for Dr. Rice because she has had the least luck with hard diplomacy of any of that group. Great Britain, India, Germany, soon France will have female leaders. Countries that have a problem dealing with that issue are the ones that need to work on it, not us.
