Just simply wonderful quotes from the ancients that never ever go out of date.  The Greeks and the Romans really really really had things figure out.  I revere much of their philosophy and intellect.  Of course Nietzsche isn't half bad either.  But all those that came later stand on the shoulders of all that came before.
Enjoy, those who seek to listen.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Every empire crashes sooner or later. That doesn't detract from the wisdom distilled during the zenith of their power.

This is what Marcus said on thanksgiving

Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.
Marcus Aurelius

These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road

HERE WE GO!

This is what Gladiator has done to everyone. I've got everyone quoting Marcus Aurelius at me.

Is Connie Nielsen going to shoot them at me too?

So I meet the future by suddenly running into a telephone pole? Give it a rest Professor.
