You can't use feet, my man....

Ed, you seriously have to get your ass out here one time. Man, you'll have a fuckin' blast! Plan for it. It's only been what? 5 years?

You too, Rick!

I do under stand Ed is a rich guy.

Money is not the problem. The guy needs motivation.
The day after CF 2011, I am going to start programs to bring Ed to 2012 (if yall let me return)

I will do videos of me walking highways gathering bottles and cans, maybe me selling fish I catch or making pot holders.

This year I will be there alone with no friends, but next year - =D> =D> \:D/ \:D/ =D> =D>

Thing is, we have the same engine [if I'm not mistaken]. You have more weight. Plus, I have what I call the "Corvette button". Add the two together? Ahhhhh, hell. \:D/

Now if you are serious? Nope. I don't do pink unless it's pussy...

I think you may be misrepresenting the spirit of Carverfest, my friend. Look at the folks that attend. Folks from all walks of life. Rich to poor. Stupid to genius. Cocky to passive. Beautiful to ugly. Well educated in sound to a newbie. There are all walks of life presented at Carverfest and all are welcome and equal. Even Sasquatch. :-s

You are no different.

That is an intresting idea. I have been thinking about it. BTW it is a Dodge Magnum not a Charger.[/quote]

Even better... more room !!!
Might even be enough room for a JL or 2 :lol:

Those are some hellacious woofers! Look like they will handle 2KW each....[/quote]

Might work OK for that rap crap, but not for Joe Pope.

You must not watch my fathers video thread at all!!! There is no such thing as that hippity hoppity bull crap in my father's music library... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

We have noticed in the past few years that anything "new" now a days is just a rip off of some awesome tune from the past... I haven't heard ANYTHING original come out of the cRap world since fEminem gave up... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lastly, the (2) JL 13.5" W7s that are in that picture sound GREAT here in our living room in the same ported box that got pulled out of an SUV! Such beautiful low rumbling bass!!

Re: What will you be driving to Carverfest?

Excellent post.
Just a couple days back Toy admitted he seldom listens to other than TV 24/7.

I am OK with that.
Most here are the same.

As grown men we get to choose.

I have not yet made it to the modern world.

I still have the time to sit still and play tunes.
It entertains me to no end.

My wife thinks I am an idiot, but it still rocks my boat.
