    Yes, but it 'pays the bills'. Making the Cayenne was probably the best business decision Porsche made since the mid-'70s.

    Yup all those SUV lovers that's where the money is. The Porsche G4 I have only seen at a car show. My favorite car in the whole show.

    It would definitely have to be brewing. Right now I’m set up for 15 gallon batches. I really want to build a one barrel system but don’t have the room.

    I have an imperial milk stout sitting in the fermentor now.

    Someone’s got long legs and skinny belly and a taste for Italian cycles. Really lovely. How much does it weight? Tubulars?

    A friend of mine (Italian guy, in his early 70s) has a bike from him. I think it was finally finished a year or so before the maker died. My friend still rides it well over 100 miles/ week.

    Classy CB, I like your style, nothing like riding on tubulars. I ride Veloflex carbons on my Campy Neutron wheels.

    ... I love the Panamera. I don't think it's pretty, but I find it strangely attractive. Including that hunchback. On the other hand, I do not understand the fascination with 911s. Sure, 20 years ago, it's in a league of its own, but today there are so many good cars out there.

    A friend of mine got his GT3 RS about two months ago, and a GT2 RS about 2 weeks ago. Suffice it to say if you rode in one of them you might understand the fascination. And while I agree the 911s through the mid 1990s has the most 'soul', a well set-up 997 or 991 can tear up the track in a way the earlier cars cannot dream of doing. On the street though those models do little to elicit the feelings the older versions drum up with ease.
