I am not coffin bound, so my winning post means I am not familiar with infinity yet ...

That's not the infinity I hint of, it's more technological in nature...

I said it's not a vehicle, or in less legal language an automobile or a car or a truck or a pickup truck. It's for My PC and that's all I want to say as I want to get that item.

Sigh... I wanted to keep that quiet, yes I've got a line on one and I intend to get one as I'll be able to in April, heck I'm not going anywhere for more than a year, so why not? Don't answer that, it's rhetorical.

Thanks Mark, I have no training for a stick shift, Cobras as standard equipment came with 6 speed manual trannies, My Dad though could drive anything, a jeep or a 6x6 or whatever, so I'll keep My 1999 Escort zx2 Sport Hot Coupe. Heck in High school He could climb ropes hand over hand, no legs needed. It's just one of 3 Zotac GTX580 Infinity cards, I know of one and with 2 Zotac Omni upgrades(that I bought this month) I intend to build 2 more, of course I'll need to get a Silverstone 1200-G psu, as I need the fan opening unblocked in the bottom of the HAF-932 case for 1 card. I've said enough though for the moment.

Oh come on, Carlos.
Only about $210,000...
And geez, it runs on regular gas.

Vick...
There ain't much 'training' needed for a stick shift.
You drop the clutch a few times to get the feel for how fast to let 'er go, get the feel for the gates in the shifter, and you are off.

Not much like it at full roar, trust me. I had more than my share of rather robustly endowed rides in my younger years.

No, Vick...the cars.

He'd have to get into it first, which may be difficult with his physical problems. (Actually, the difficulty is getting out again. I know, and I don't have his joint problems.)

Besides it's out of My price range and at the moment, credit score range. Besides I can do like Carlos and drool, although I do have a friend 50 miles away who owns a Lamborghini Countach, a super car... Although I don't know what year it is, and except for color it looks like this:

Oh the car price is not the issue, it the cost of gas.

I am retiring my Jeep in favor of an Audi A3 TDI. 50 mpg and I can burn biofuel. I ordered one and it should be delivered and ready to pick up this weekend. Remember I am Senior Environmental Manager for the largest PV solar power plant on the earth. I need to be a green as I can be.

I have a test drive for the Audi S3 on the 1st April, thats the day it is launched here. With the narrow country lanes here and the weather we have had this winter, and now into spring, I prefer a 4WD. It is claimed to do 40 miles on a UK gallon which is ~33 mpg US equivalent.
