I'll make my father bring his Mazdaspeed 6 so he can embarass you like he did the last ricer that tried to show him up. biggrin.gif

Though, chances are, he won't be coming to this meet. Shame.

There are justifiable reasons why Kids insurance rates are so high.

1) They are young, therefore inexperienced. (Comparitively)
2) They are young and generally have yet to grasp their own mortality.
3) Hormones!

I object to the term Ricer, because I've been proudly riding Rice Rockets since the 70's. There's nothing wrong with riding or driving a modified machine, it's being a punk ass that I object to. Unfortunately when I see someone driving a hot rodded CIvic, or riding a GSXR-600 (because they couldn't get insurance for immtbiker's ZX-14 or my Hayabusa) inappropriately they usually turn out to be a young punk ass.

These comments are in no way meant to imply that all young drivers are bad. Nor am I implying that all older people are good drivers.

Absolutely. The reason that we have to pay more to insure is simply because we cost the insurance companies more. Also, I think punk ass is an excellent way to put it, and I will now use that instead of the blanket term ricer to describe the type of people that bother me. tongue.gif

Al, it's about time you joined us - it's been too long!

Holy cow, its 49ºF in MA today.  Spring fever is in the air.

I will be thrilled to buttons if it's this warm and nice out for the meet.  Really looking forward to going.  Unless something major comes up, I'll be there.  Most likely with the family, my dad bringing a few headphone stands he makes.

 

 

Can I throw out a wanted dead or alive?

 

Wanted Dead or Alive:

Audeze LCD-2

 

 

Somehow I managed to miss these things when they came out, and just this month I've been reading about them.  I'm very excited to hear a pair (or more).

 

 

 

 

 

PS:  Fast cars are overrated.  What you really need is a nice handling car.

J/k, of course

I have a feeling Doug will be bringing his to the meet (sorry if I'm being overly presumptive, Doug!).

 

And x2 on the handling.  With all these cops hot to give you a ticket, I rather have great handling than just speed.  Everyone goes the same speed in traffic.

Is it an SHO model? Because that model is one of the fastest production vehicles made in America today.  The twin turbo V6 has 365 HP.  It is the definition of "sleeper" car.

Plus, changing diapers and then touching all the gear must violate the rules. biggrin.gif   Not to mention I would need to bring the bottles, stroller, etc.

I really hope to make it because I have some new goodies to bring...

 

Vinnie

Why don't you just "mail" her tongue.gif like that lady did?

I don't ever remember having this conversation before.  Maybe in a parallel universe. And davederek's right, if we didn't necessarily lust after new toys, we wouldn't be who we are, we'd be Scrabble or Poker fiends, like the ones next door to us at some of our last meetings.

 

My name is Aaron, and I'm an Audioholic!

Hi. I might be interested in attending this if I can squeeze some time. What time does this start? and do I need to bring anything? Also it doesn't cost anything to attend right? Sorry for the noob questions. I have never attended one of these before

Not from his description. The SHO is awesome though.

I love the sleeper car that is my father's. 0-60 in under 6 seconds in..... what appears to be a Mazda 6.

Although the sleeper car of the century is the Audi RS6 Avant, only available in Europe. A twin turbo V10.... stationwagon.

the time will be posted later but usually things get going around 10am. doors may open an hour earlier for set up. you don't need to bring anything. it'll run pretty much all day. the stragglers usually go out for a bite at the local diner afterwards. sometimes we pass the hat to cover the cost of the room (if the raffle revenue isn't sufficient), but no there isn't an admission charge. read the 'tips for newbies' section of this: http://home.roadrunner.com/~stevieo/head-fi.2011.spring.html
