Last September 9th...the year 2549 should have been a bumper time for car sales.


Also, people in Asia pay big money for license tags with multiple 9s in them. Four 9's cost a fortune.

yeah, Asian people are very superstitious, 9 in chinese sounds like enough, the more 9's the better. 8 is also a popular number as it sounds like fortune. 4 is unpopular b/c it sounds similiar to death. I don't really care, whatever the local DMV gives me is fine.

997 TPC turbo C4S
981 Boxster S
06' SLK 350, Iridium/Ash all pkgs. 6-spd, 19" DCR. (Gone but not forgotten)

Corkscrew, an interesting read. I have really enjoyed it and it seems that the SLK turns heads in thailand.

Spent a little time checking out your web site Corkscrew. All I can say is WOW. Lots of cool stuff. I just may have to join your club (as long as all those barely clad ladies will be greeting me at the meetings :-)

lovin the tits half way down the page .

you have posted this before corckscrew as i remember being very interested in the methods involved.

That is unbelievable the street dentist!!! surely there are Health and Safety Laws which prevent this sort of thing being carried out on the street? or would this man just ignore the laws and do it anyway.

No, this type of dentistry can be perfomed on the street. The guys are just fitting things over the gums.
