    I hope you know I was joking.

    I called a car Betsy for years. :D

    Boats...I love all the names people come up with! How about "The Minnow"? :D w7xeifwbcp4b.png

    Maybe "Fluid Coupled"

    Not too sure on that. The National Theyicane Center(formerly known as the National Hurricane Center) had to change their name to be more inclusive. ;) :p

    I'm old enough to remember when there was just female names for Hurricanes. :)

    I'm offended by Hemorrhoid now. :s

    What about our antique cars? her or it ?
    .

    I suggest asking the car what pronouns they prefer. Don’t assume anything. They might prefer to be called an automobile, or truck. Some may even be offended by the abbreviation of their name. SUV’s for instance, may prefer to be called by their full name, Sport Utility Vehicle...

    And let’s not even get into the various makes and models. That’s where things get really complicated.

    Interesting. Haven't really thought about it. We call one of em the "59" and the other "SSR". But you've got me thinking. Hmmm. :smile:

    I can't really remember what it was about, but I was lusting after the eerie glow of the meters, and enchanted by it's signature unmistakable McIntosh sound quality.

    Update. Seller sent me another e-mail. He now upped his price to $500.00 over what I paid for it! OMG! This guy is insane! :smile:

    So weird and awkward. I thought the relationship ended when money and goods were exchanged. You have no obligation to communicate any further with him.

    A price was agreed upon, the transaction was completed and now it's done. I can't wrap my head around this "seller's remorse" stuff.

    That's Russ...not Ron

    If you're inquiring about the Dyn C4's shipped to Halen those made it home.

    I took my Usher MD2's to Dallas, Skip sold them, then returned with Dyn C4's
    My wife thought I did a trade plus cash...she had no clue how much more those Dyn's cost

    It's not that I lie to my wife about equipment cost, it's just that I tell her what I think it should have cost. I think that's a fair compromise.
