Still enjoying life in my icebox of an office at 5400. They replaced the VAV above my office and decided not to install a thermostat for it, so it's been on KILL for the past two months. Thermostat install will probably happen in 2021.

Looking at the power rating makes the think, meh why bother. But then TT comes to mind.

kidding.

I will attempt to get it for a low price. Maybe even get some retro Oaklies and drive around like a fly guy from 1995. popped collar and all.

It's usually in the 60s in my area. Everyone wears jackets in the summer and short sleeves in the winter. Apparently this building is cooled by some kind of chilled water setup that has no thermostat and is even on in the winter. It's only countered by steam heat which doesn't exist in the summer.

Back to the point though, I know they're kinda shit but I always loved the look of the original RT/10. It reminds me of that old Viper tv show

That&#8217;s my love affair with these gen 1 vipers. As a performance car they lack so much by today&#8217;s standards but in a nostalgic world of Oakley&#8217;s and neon they were the absolute hottest thing since fire. They came out in my teenage years and that show was not missed if it was on. I saw every episode I think.

Driving one of those wouldn't bother me at all. Offer 20K and don't be upset if you get stabbed slightly.

I rode in a viper last night. Some of them are pretty decent.
