Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Since Lileks is in Vegas...

and we've been talking about cars, and conspicuous consumption, and social irresponsibility, and shoehorns, from this year's SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association) Show in Neon Babylon, a link to the RS8, a FACTORY conversion of the Ford Focus to the righteous and holy, V8--rear drive drivetrain. They're going to sell a kit to do the swap, too, and I'm sure it brings back fond memories for all of you old guys who ever scratched your heads and contemplated the V8 Vega swap. (Actually not that hard after 1975, since it shared a front subframe with the Monza which could be ordered with a small block. Which I pondered often during the years I drove a '76 Vega wagon.)

Remember, there is no substitute for cubic inches.
