Hi guys,<p>I've been lurking here for quite some time, but have only posted a few times. I have a non-R related favor to ask. I am one of five finalists in the Optima Batteries Full ride competition. I have a 1972 Chevelle and if I win, I will receive a $50,000 vehicle make-over. I'd like to ask, if you're so inclined, to surf over to <A HREF="http://www.optimafullride.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.optimafullride.com</A> and vote for me. You can vote once a day, starting 10 July until 31 July. My name is Eric Jankowski. Thanks a bunch.

I know...but I never have much to contribute. Better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot than to open it and remove all doubt

Re: (sixty-fouR pilot)

I fully understand that this thread is off topic, but this is the only forum here with much traffic. I apologize if I wasted anyone's time. Thanks anyway.

Nah. People just take exception to the Whack-A-Mole approach. Bad form to lurk the forum and take what you need and contribute nothing in return unitil you need people to stuff a ballot-box for you.<p>Kind of self-serving doncha think?

I certainly didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. I have an '05 R. The only mods I've done is remove the center resonator, and I've never had a problem with the car...thus, not much to contribute. As evidenced by this thread, many posts are written as opinion or vitriol and not as useful information. As I could not offer anything for the common good (or even common entertainment) I have refrained from posting much. If I have offended by "taking advantage" then please disregard my posts. If on the other hand, you would like to help a fellow R-owner and general car nut win a sweet prize, please vote for me and my '72 Malibu starting tomorrow. <A HREF="http://www.optimafullride.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.optimafullride.com</A>
