just noticed your sig, I had a 96 G20...what a great sleeper of a car. It looked like any silver car on the hwy but loved to cruise at 85-95
Nice! Yeah if I could get it back I would in a second. It was the only beater I have ever driven that had fantastic ride:handling ratio. Felt great even at 160 km/h. Also fantastic drift machine! Also had more interior space than most bigger cars today. Go 90s safety standards!

Just built a house (downsized). Marble floors (bedrooms, living areas, bathrooms, kitchen), outdoor natural gas kitchen, outdoor natural gas fireplace, natural gas generator, and 11 foot double front doors were expensive extras.

Otherwise, don't mod cars anymore (viper still stock) and no costly hobbies.

Congrats on the new house. Sounds very tasteful. I'm trying to get there one of these days. But being single and having a car problem doesn't do me any favors.

That sounds awesome. Any pics? I'd like to do this eventually. I'm helping my brother renovate his house right now.

I like that marble color! Will really give the house a 'natural' feel if you compliment the colors.

I actually did a similar color/style for my kitchen's backsplash.

This gets a lot of my time and wallet.

180G SPS Reef Tank with corals and fish from around the world. Its on a fully automated system that can be controlled from the internet and an android app.

These all started from 1-2" pieces and a number of them are over 12" in diameter now. Going for 4 years now.

Awesome! How much did the one in the pic cost?

And I like the Android part

Extraordinary aquarium. Likely pictures cannot get close to showing just how beautiful it really is.

Very true, pictures dont even come close to showing the tank, the corals are huge and have nice coloration. Once a year I do some clipping and sell the pieces for $10-$40 a piece. Depending on coral type and size. The last batch was 60 pieces. The pieces I sell are typically 1-2" with 1-3 branches. So they are pretty small at the time of sale.
