    Still why buy that when you can have one of these babies!

    The so-called "wedge" cars of the '80s are supposedly the next hot thing as younger age collectors are getting just old enough to get nostalgiac and don't have the same boomer hang-ups on '60s muscle cars. I casually chased 1985 Subaru XT coupes for a couple years but all of these '80s wedge cars were such POSes that you will be hard pressed to find a decent one today, and they are not worth anything to spend the $$$ to restore--if you can even find parts and proper materials.

    I never new Renaissance Men entertained silly hypotheticals

    Sometimes you've got to be mean spirited, 'Cruel To Be Kind', as Nick Lowe mentioned.

    Cruel to be kind is actually Shakespeare's phrase, which Lowe copped.

    You should know that, as a supposed "Renaissance man".

  • On 27 Aug 2014 in Case /Shiller House Price Index, Philistine said:

    iwog says

    The decline is only in the CS seasonally adjusted numbers

    Isn't the point of seasonally adjusting numbers to remove the expected seasonal swings that occur every year, in order to reveal the underlying trend (e.g., in this case, a decline)?
