    Russ, keep the shiny side up and the dirty side down, as we used to say on the CB radio :)

    Clarification needed: Which is which ?

    Instructions Unclear: Hand stuck in toaster.

    Point taken -- in the present case, the aphorism would require amendment to:
    Keep the bucket side up...

    Unsure as to what the dirty side looks like, in the case under discussion. Probably just as well.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    That might be the same color as my '73 Firebird was, Navajo Orange.

    I traded in my '71 LeMans which was medium blue with a white vinyl roof (never buy a car with a white vinyl roof!) for the Firebird at a Pontiac dealer on Eastern Ave in Baltimore. That GTO needs some TLC.

    I had an orange '71 Buick Skylark with a white vinyl top exactly like the one pictured below (except for those wheels). Never park one of those under a tree. :p

    Beautiful looking car! I remember cleaning the vinyl roof with Bon Ami cleanser and a brush. Looked great when clean.

    Could be true, if you had enough to drink to go along with the scrubbing.

    Congrats Russ... now the beer drinking world will be mourning the slow decline and eventual passing of Budweiser and the other brands of Anheiser-Busch. There is no way in hell they can ever make anything but skunky beer after they let you in that place.
