Damn Doug, your Z it hot. So hot, if you were near here, i'd give you a free detail for the heck of it. I can buff those swirls out in no time.

I think in part it has much to do with the jobs and amount of endurance and time management one is able to put up with. Example

I take out loans for my tuition but I do spend about $400-$500 on books every 3 months (quarter system). My rent is $250 (staying with parents but they make me pay rent...gay! lol). Car payment is $310/month and my insurance is $200/month for the Z + my beater ('93 Infiniti g20 POS) Misc expenses like gas/food/phone bills/mods and hanging out adds to about $500ish?

My previous job was at an luxury apartment realtor and I worked 24 hours a week but mostly replies on commission (and I have to work Sat AND Sun - very lame) for the past 4 years. I make really good money because of the amount of apartments I rent every month.

My current job (2 weeks now) is more relaxing. I'm a debt collector for a big law firm in Seattle and we collect on accounts for large banks - mostly debt purchasers. Now I'm working 30 hours a week and no comission but I am getting the weekends off - which I think is worth much more.

Bottomline is putting up with working 30 hours/week and studying and building up a good resume to get better paying jobs instead of taking the more relaxing approach. Yeah I could work at the mall and make $8 an hour, drive an accord and get tons of free time for hanging out and studying...but I rather drive the Z, mod it, and build up a better resume even if it's more challenging.

Though I do envy those who has their parents paying for their college expenses and/or their Z

+1 man parents cut me off after hs. Went to college with only my savings and no car . Walked, bummed rides, biked for 2 years until I was able to buy a civic. I was making $12-$15/hr at my job but my dad screwed me the first couple of years by claiming me therefore I couldn't get chit in student loans. I basically had to work 40hrs/week and took full course loads of 12-15 hrs each semester. I must be out of school too long because we didn't refer to the semesters as quarters back then. Ramen noodles saved my life.

New AMD Opteron 175 Dual core processor to replace my aging Athlon 64 +3700. Gotta keep that socket 939 alive just a little longer while I wait for AMD to come out with a reasonable competition for the Core 2 Duo and maybe actually force Intel to play at price wars again. Cuz frankly I'm not loving the idea of dumping close to $1000 down the crapper to upgrade to an AM2 or LGA 775 until I know which is actually going to be worth my time and money.

sure are...they are only 8"...but my buddy had a single 10W7 with a JL1000/1 and it was WAY louder than the 2x12" kicker solobaric L7's that I rocked in my old car. So...I figured 2 8"s would fit nicely...and definitely pack enough punch for my needs...
