1983 Pontiac 6000

6000 STE to be precise
the very car i successfully lobbied my parents to replace my mom’s pinto wagon with in 1984 and subsequently, um, totaled two years later. not even doing anything stupid! (not to say i didn’t do stupid things in it on other occasions, just not on that one.) just hit some water, aquaplaned, spun, and did my best to ruin a very nice stucco planter wall on the corner of a brand new chino hills housing development, while puncturing a lung and breaking some ribs in the process. the cassette in the tape player at the time was bauhaus’ burning from the inside. if you think you are more goth than me you are wrong.
still feel bad about wrecking that car though. sorry mom and dad
:-(

They’re going to keep on doing it, they’ll go on perfecting it. We are the enemy. That is, Venezuela, Cuba, everything going on in Latin America as an alternative. We are the dissidents of the world. We live in a world dominated by capitalism. Where that new capitalist way of being dominates, so that now one can’t even call it imperialist, it’s something new, something that goes way beyond what students of Marxism wrote in history years ago. It’s something new, novel. It’s a power, practically global, of the big transnationals, of those megalopolies they’ve created. Therefore, we are the enemy. We are presenting an alternative project. The solution that the world proposes to us, is not that. We know how to do it, and Cuba, Venezuela, the ALBA countries, have demonstrated that it can be done, that one or two days more are nothing. The Cuban revolution has been in existence for 55 years, and with political will, it has achieved things that the US government, with all the money in the world, has been unable to do. So that’s a bad example.

And I’ve told my students: Can you imagine that the Indignants in Spain, the thousands and millions of workers out of work in Spain, that the Greeks, that all those people in all the world, know what we’re doing? Can you imagine that these people get to know who Chávez is? Or who Fidel is? Or of the things we’re doing here? Or the things we’re doing with so few resources, only the will to make revolution and share the wealth? What will happen to capitalism? How much longer will capitalism last, which has to spend billions of dollars, every day, to build its image and fool the people? What would happen if the people knew who we really are? What is the Cuban Revolution, really, and what is the Venezuelan Revolution? Because, if you talked to a Spaniard and asked him about Chávez, and he gives you a terrible opinion of Chávez, because it’s what they’ve constructed in his mind/ And you meet an unemployed person who tells you that Chávez is a bad guy, because the media have convinced him of that, but if these people knew how things really were! So they can’t allow that such formidable enemies as ourselves should be there, at the door.

If you talk to people on Wall Street, most of them—even, in my experience, the ones shopping for Lamborghinis—will tell you that they’re “middle class.”

Why Don’t the 1 Percent Feel Rich?

One doesn’t “shop” for a Lamborghini. One makes discrete inquiries at Sant’Agata.

Under-appreciated Pininfarina GT coupe… Ferrari 400i/412

A lovely collection of lines and angles.

will never understand why this is a controversial opinion. to me it ranks alongside the lusso as one of the most elegant and understated cars to ever leave maranello. the “family” ferrari worth starting a family for.
