    The typical recruit is 18, and they gave the 3 of us who were a few years old a lot of **** in basic because we were old men, and why did we wait so long to enlist....

    If I would have gone reserves I would only have ab out 7 years to go, but I enlisted when I was 21 almost 22 so I was a little older than most of the guys already.

    Oh I know right? I mean I must need re-education... Hey wait no, I am not going back out to that failed Western state. Hasn't it just fallen off the map yet?

    As far as the shop goes, I have also had great luck with Harbor Freight. Are you looking at a specific budget, or just building up over time?

    Yeah well actually serving in the military isn't the same as living in CA I can agree with that, it is a good thing then that I was active duty military then right? I was stationed outside of CA too, I didn't live in the same state my whole life. Also, yes I too believe in personal property rights, however you volunteered your earnings into that system. You could easily have refused to pay taxes, and refused to pay anything. Did you? If not then it isn't theft, it was voluntary. Hell I added up what I paid into Social Security since I started working at 14 ( well rough average), and I would have a MUCH better retirement account if I was allowed to invest that into my own retirement fund, or even invest it into a long term mutual fund.

    So what you're saying is that you believe you are entitled to it because you paid into the system? SO you're saying you have a sense of entitlement? Like a millennial? I don't know about what a millennial knows, but since one of us has served in the military that person might know a bit more than the average bear. LOL, Ashley you add a ton of fun to the argument, this is too much fun haha.

    You suck Ashley! Hey if you were born 1980 through 1999 supposedly that's now millenial territory. Mike is a millennial too. It's insane that people feel the need to identify with some sort of generation grouping. It all means so very little in the grand scheme of things. Can't we all just get along?

    Yeah that's kind of a douche move. I get that leaking info is part of it all, but this is kind of a huge deal that a lot of people who are crazy corvette fanatics have been waiting for. I am really curious how it's going to perform, and now I am curious as to what Ford is going to reply with.

    I am with you on this one Disney, and what's a tad irritating is growing up I was part of gen x, then about 8 years ago when they fabricated the millenials group, my birth year was now part of that useless group. They think that being a server at Chuy's makes it so they should be able to live in downtown Nashville, and like they deserve it because they have a degree in gender studies. Plus all their professors said they are super stellar, and their opinion is totally valid. My wife and I made good financial decisions, and combined we make an ok living, but we both know that "WE" are our own limiting factor. We want more money, we grow and learn, and get better at our careers, or we learn a trade that will take us where we want to go. I can afford to live here just fine, and I don't think that's a fuddy duddy attitude, it's the attitude of a person who understands how the world works, and that "YOU" need to work hard in order to make money. The make money over night schemes are cute tricks, but true wealth building is a marathon, not a sprint.

    Thank you all! Sorry I haven't replied sooner, just a crazy last couple of weeks. I seriously can't wait to get the kiddo out in the garage to help me work on the Camaro. I just sold a 4.8 I had and I am about to buy a plasma cutter to make life a lot easier. @JohnC your car sounds so damn amazing! Also I started watching that stupid street racing in nashville video, and those knuckleheads aren't street racing, they just swangin their cars in stupid sideshows.
