Today I resigned from my job as Project Manager and accepted an administrative position for an M.E.P. Engineering firm. New job, new responsibilities, new opportunities, more money, sign-on bonus, car allowance and all the other standard benefits. Good move all the way around. :cool:

Made the decision to upgrade my 2015 Challenger Scat Pack to a 2018 Wide Body Hellcat. Currently stripping 4 years of mods restoring the car back to stock and starting over. Considering I just finished the car a few months ago starting over is going to suck, but I felt it was necessary. After looking into what I need to have my 430 RWHP Scat Pack to even match the Hellcat power I was looking at blowing everything the car earned last year on forged internals, Supercharger, exhaust, Tune, etc then hoping I don't break something.

Taking that money and putting it on a better base car was the best decision. Now I'm at 650 RWHP and able to take it to about 950+ RWHP without too much concern.

Yes, checked out available but a bit too late it seems unless I travel interstate :( I should have followed and moved months ago.

A quick salary search says that I'm making more than an actual Engineer. So I'm doing just fine.

Those were/are overpriced in order to fund mass production of the model 3. The increased cost is more about being an early tesla driver than it is about the quality of the car. You could buy 2 model 3's for the price of a model s and you're basically buying the same car.

Will a 90's Kia be any better with a foot-long decal of your name on the side?

We reached Wenkchemna Pass (2,611m) and beyond it lay raw untouched wilderness - no trails, no rangers, no reception. The last of the ten peaks flank us on both sides, funnelling the mass of air travelling over the valley below up through the pass and crashed directly into us. Clouds spilled over Neptuak Mountain, twisting and darkening before unloading on us a mixture of rain and face-stinging hail. It was time to leave.

Valley of Ten Peaks

Not what the reviews say. That said, I've owned a kia, early 2000's and yes it was shit yet I still preferred that to a mazda.

That's ok, you were too busy managing strip club cocaine empires to learn anything basic about cars. Just listen to whatever the salesperson tells you.

I've owned 5 vehicles in the last two years. Tore down an engine that wasn't running and fixed it and have a lift in my garage. Try again moron. To juxtapose things, you got hit by a car and somehow still come off as the asshole in that situation.
