You just need to rally out an older Porsche…

The thought has crossed my mind. :D

There is a '83 944 coupe nearby for sale ($12k) but it has been gutted and turned into a race car. They did a very nice job, but it only has one seat and wouldn't make the best vehicle for the winter. It would be a bit drafty. :lol:
I was guessing it did. 944 and 924 rollers can still be had for cheap. Might consider an optima battery, some new cabin rubber and an aux heater. ;)

With the full roll cage in the vehicle and updated racing fuel cell tank, I might need a can of spray foam as well. :lol:

I will find one here sometime. Though I need to decrease the amount of projects I have going on first.

Somebody should open an investigation or something. Call it “Twitter Files”.

Are you really trying to equate the billionaire owner of Twitter manipulating the platform for self aggrandizement to bureaucrats manipulating the platform to manipulate and influence people and elections?

1). I’m Elon, here’s my independent journalist who’s confirming everything I and the alt right have been saying.

2). We’re still gathering evidence to blow the lid off the Trump administration’s (you know…the one’s who were actually in charge of the government at the time) pleas to interfere with Twitter content.

You guys do know that no one is taking the Twitter Files seriously at this point, right?

So the twitter files have become a partisan joke kind of like how the January 6 committee became a partisan joke?

Yup - just like Private Citizen Biden trying to get dick pics removed is the same as the Sitting President at the time pressuring Twitter to quash stories unfavorable to his orangeness are almost the same.

If you think the bipartisan committee that has shown the major conspiracy to overturn an election is a joke, then you are far down the rabbit hole.

It started out with an extremely important purpose but unfortunately turned into a dog & pony show because the leaders were more interested in PR than truth and justice.

I don't think the Twitter files have uncovered anything people didn't already know. Now if they got more into who in the government was driving a lot of the narrative, they might be a little more interested. I'm not talking individuals either, but the Global Engagement Center of the State Department.

Now how did SeatleGriz beat the Twitter Files in regards to the GEC by three weeks?

If you don't know what's going on here, the Government, under Obama, started declaring people they didn't like as foreign actors and thus just like illegal FISA searches, get to look into cyber identities. Illegal searches and then target them.

I did. I think those might be more damaging because the reporter got all of them, whereas with Twitter, I believe they are asking to see tweets and don't have unfettered access.

They could be, but people will have to a) pay attention, and b) care. Either way it all stinks of elitism.
