Quote from: VtaGeezer on November 13, 2015, 03:38:13 PMClassic car auctions are a sea of white hair. Geezers looking for the car of their 17-yr old dreams. Like me!

Quote from: albrecht on November 13, 2015, 03:42:41 PMThose auctions are scary. You can really get caught up in it. A buddy bought, an I think, over priced classic truck at Mecum last year but he has the bucks and is happy with it (though got it taken down to frame and restored again to his personal specs) so more power to him. But the emotion of the bidding process etc is scary to watch- like any auction, I guess. Auctioneers know what they are doing.
Quote from: VtaGeezer on November 13, 2015, 03:31:40 PMAngelo Mazilo (Countrywide) was fined about $70M, but IIRC, B of A paid it with TARP funds. Those are the guys I'm talking about; they rake in 20-30 million/yr; year in year out, probably to accounts in the Caymans while the lags running a dry cleaning shop or roofing business are their tax rate cannon fodder.
Quote from: onan on November 13, 2015, 03:48:57 PMYep, I was at an auction last week, a beautiful Grady White starting at 10 grand. Within minutes it was over 45 grand. More than I could afford, but I continued to watch (and cry). It finally sold for 63,000. More than it was worth, being almost 20 years old. A new version still sealed sells for a little more than 100,000.
Quote from: chefist on November 13, 2015, 03:58:15 PMThese car auctions are driven by the hyper wealthy...the values are really the value of their nostalgic dreams...not the metal and rubber...I still love watching them!

Quote from: VtaGeezer on November 13, 2015, 04:10:20 PMName one real estate firm or branch that was siezed for peddling inflated price houses to ignorant buyers by setting them up for reverse-interest mortgages they knew they could never keep up with. And those pigs have the nerve to copyright the word "Realtor" as some kind of professional title of ethics.
Quote from: breitbart.comDaniel Greenfield at FrontPage Mag writes that the marvelous term â€œcrybullyâ€ was coined by Julie Burchill at The Spectator, who described them as â€œa hideous hybrid of victim and victor, weeper and walloper.â€Greenfield defines a crybully as â€œthe abuser who pretends to be a victim. His arguments are his feelings. He comes armored in identity politics entitlement and is always yelling about social justice, or crying social justice tears.â€Greenfield offers some examples of crybully tactics from campus crusaders: Crymobs will â€œsafebaitâ€ by yelling and pushing and then whining that the people theyâ€™re shoving make them feel unsafe. One crybully safebaiting tactic is to yell loudly, forcing anyone talking back to them to raise their voice. Thatâ€™s when other crybullies begin shouting, â€œDonâ€™t yell at her.â€ Crybullies will push into you and cry that youâ€™re making them feel unsafe. They will hit you and when you raise your hands in self-defense, they will scream that youâ€™re putting your hands on them. (All these safebaiting tactics and more can be seen in the Missouri video.) Crybullies donâ€™t think this behavior is dishonest because their pain privilege entitles them to tone police you, but you canâ€™t tone police them. Their sweet social justice tears give them the right to yell at you, shove you or hit you. Crying over social justice gives them a license to bully everyone else. If crybullies canâ€™t safebait you, they will manufacture threats by faking hate crimes against themselves or phoning in bomb threats to validate their need for a safe space in which no one is allowed to disagree with them. Surviving their own fake crimes turns crybullies into social justice heroes. Itâ€™s impossible to have a rational conversation with a crybully because it doesnâ€™t walk to talk to you; it wants to loudly broadcast its feelings. As one Yale crybully wrote, â€œI donâ€™t want to debate. I want to talk about my pain.â€ My pain. Me. Stop arguing with me and start paying attention to me right now.
Quote from: VtaGeezer on November 13, 2015, 04:54:59 PMI go to the big auctions in Scottsdale in January. I'm astounded at the prices they get for what often amounts to sentimental junk; I'll always see a '65 Plymouth Belvidere 4dr as junk, hemi or not! I only cry when I think of now classic cars I've owned and sold, and a few that I passed because I thought they were overpriced at the time. ...sniff.
Quote from: bateman on November 13, 2015, 04:55:30 PMYears ago, Nicholas Cage (probably in a hypomanic state) singlehandedly drove up classic Lamborghini prices by doing this:http://deseretnews.com/article/548731/Cage-pays-a-hefty-450000-for-shahs-red-Lamborghini.html?pg=all
Quote from: onan on November 13, 2015, 03:25:05 PMI just had this conversation with my wife. I was sitting in the parking lot of Office Max while my wife was shopping. As she got into the car, I chuckled at a fellow parking next to me. He was driving a new Dodge Challenger, he had to be 80 and was using a cane to help him walk. Somehow I don't think he will be in the next Dodge commercial.
Quote from: paladin1991 on November 14, 2015, 01:53:50 AMHaha. Yeah, that won't be me. The Boy is drooling, hoping that I get the car and that I'll leave it to him when I kick off.
Quote from: albrecht on November 14, 2015, 07:47:16 AMYou need to 'invest' in an old, reliable Dodge Powerwagon for the Compound and a 'city' car being a mid-to-early 80's Caprice for the wife, both fine selections for the Inland Empire and provide traction and stopping power.
Quote from: breitbart.comBlack Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters responded to the murder of scores of people in Paris at the hands of Islamic extremists by complaining about losing the spotlight and saying their â€œstrugglesâ€ were being â€œerased.â€ Their struggles, remember, consist of a poop swastika of unknown provenance and unsubstantiated claims of racially-charged remarks somewhere near Missouriâ€™s campus.
Quote from: pyewacket on November 14, 2015, 11:32:08 AMMizzou activists tweet comparing their struggles with "terrorism". Your concept of reality may vary and if it does- well- you know what you are.http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/11/14/mizzou-campus-activists-and-black-lives-matter-complain-about-paris-stealing-the-spotlight/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social

Quote from: csulb.eduLONG BEACH, Calif. (November 14, 2015) â€" California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) student Nohemi Gonzalez, 23, was killed during the attacks in and around Paris on November 13. Gonzalez, from El Monte, Calif., was a senior studying design. She was in Paris attending Strate College of Design during a semester abroad program. Specific details of her passing are not available at this time. The university will hold a vigil at 4 pm on Sunday to mourn Gonzalezâ€™s passing and to grieve for all the victims of the atrocious attack. More information about the vigil will be shared as details are finalized.
Quote from: pyewacket on November 15, 2015, 12:12:29 PMToo bad there wasn't a "safe space" for this young woman and all the other innocent people. Amazing- the people of Paris are grieving together instead of demanding separate spaces.
Quote from: VtaGeezer on November 15, 2015, 01:59:31 PMShe was reportedly killed in the restaurant drive-by. There's just no defense against that.
Quote from: dailycaller.comAbout a 150 Dartmouth protesters shouted as they marched through Baker-Berry Library at Dartmouth College. Students who didnâ€™t join in on their protests were harassed, one woman was pinned to a wall by protesters who shouted, â€œfilthy white bitch!â€ in her face. Students who were seated were told to, â€œStand the fuck up!â€ â€œYou filthy racist white piece of shit!â€
