Hey Magick, since it's not legal to wear headphones while you're driving, what're you doing in terms of car audio for these acquisitions?

Liquid Lightning headphone amplifiers... and the upcoming Liquid Spark!

I like it a lot....I was just at work when you initially posted it.wink.gif  I like it better than the Riviera you were interested in, actually.

I take liberties in the 458, and have been known to be a hooligan in it, but never quite like that. Chris is bonkers.

I really don't need this many. smile_phones.gif

There's a couple ultraportables, a couple older ones I use as the take-to-work beaters, the two larger ones I use as my home units, and the one that has wifi and Android so I can download podcasts and occasionally play games and videos.

Which one did you see veyrongatti?
post #1978 of 9498

As a kid, I used to see one of these around town.....

 

I remember asking my dad about it, and he said,"It's a Thing."  Thought he was messing with me at first, then he elaborated, "It's actually called the Volkswagen Thing!"  I thought it was cool in an anti-cool kind of way, although I wouldn't have chosen it over the Lamborghinis  on my wall. Funny to run across this image today.....I haven't seen or heard about one of these cars in many years.

Magick - I want to see a drag-race between the Vespa scooter (and I think of Princess Vespa...) and the Isetta. I'm guessing it'll sound like two beehives having a war, and collectively they won't break 70mph, but it would still be hilarious to watch. Either that, or do a full-on review/comparison between the two, which might be funnier. biggrin.gif

Not even fair, the Isetta would smoke the Vespa, it's weighs nothing and has a 25hp engine. If I try, I can actually do small (one-wheel) burnouts.
