So Tuesday construction on the new skidpad starts:)

 

Usually a bank will take the quickest way out to get rid of a property. To them it's like any other security asset thats repo'd. They are not in that business so getting it off the books pronto is of value to them.

Perhaps Asparagus. Have you seen the prices for them lately?

The bank loses money the longer it waits thus it took your solicitors offer.

 

Someone in that bank will have a very good month if the property is worth a few million and they flipped it without

 

any costs to the bank and without the hassle of getting legal involved. Both Legal and Risk/Credit would be pleased;)

Nah, the value is 420ish and the note is ~145. I'm still not even sure exactly how that works out yet, but I told my attorney to make sure I get it.

I love the smell of apple blossoms, I grew up next to a large orchard.

Looks like they defaulted on a 100k loan.

 

Make sure you build a long driveway, a realllyyy long driveway with a slight curve:D

Defending one's home is an American tradition. It is unsafe to walk down the street of any city, and there are jerks, rednecks and gangbangers no matter where you live. You can't be scared all the time, and you also can't be foolish and put yourself or your family in danger. The best you can do is be smart, protect what you care about and do your best to not let the jerks, rednecks and gangbangers win!

And if that fails.

Thoughts on Maserati's Super Bowl commercial? I think the vague "attack the luxury giants" message was effective, but completely lost on the audience they're looking for to buy the Ghibli.

post #5741 of 9498
The Maserati commercial was a perfect example of why we need to build the "B" Ark and purge our planet of all the telephone handset sanitizers and advertising twits.

It's pretty clear Maserati hasn't got a clue how to sell cars to 'muricans. What I would have done is showed a couple of B-List celebrities pull-up outside a club in Mercs and BMWs. The valet would have then been shown parking them in a line of 50 other identical Mercs & Bimmers. Then I would have had the Maserati pull-up, rev it's engine and an incredibly hot Italian model would have gotten out of the passenger side. Then the driver side door would have opened and it would be some dumpy looking "regular guy". He wouldn't say anything - he would just look at the camera and smile as he hands the Maserati keys to the valet. The next shot shows the car being parked in the premium spot right next to the valet stand, with a sign that says "Reserved for Ghibli".

Speaking of Superbowl commercials...

Did you see the commercial for Scientology?? WTF?? The apocalypse is upon us - the cults now have commercials...

Now, the Chrysler 200 commercial was a good Superbowl commercial. They get it. "Let the Germans brew your beer. Let the Swiss make your watch. Let the Chinese assemble your phone. WE will make your car."

Regardless of the actual quality of the product - THAT is how you market to Americans during the Superbowl.

Only Bob Dylan could pull off that commercial with the tune from "Things have changed" playing in the background.

Regarding Scientology and Armageddon, they just have a multi million TV commercial instead of a sandwich board,

Yeah, no reason to let them push me out, there's danger anywhere. If all you do is run from problems, then problems are all you'll ever have.


I like that guy in Lebanon (the one selling the Volvo P1800), he and his brother buy rare and atypical cars from estate sales, moderately restore them, then flip them. The `65 P1800S (not a Jensen-built car) doesn't look too bad, some cosmetic issues but he says it's mechanically "right as rain":



More interesting is this `61 Lotus Elite, outfitted with a B&B 1.6L Climax engine & Weber carbs, good for 140bhp, and a 4-spd ZF gearbox:

Also, look in the background, there.
