Satanic_Hamster: Matthew Sweet was awesome in the 90's.

This is also true. Plus, he did a good couple albums with Susanna Hoffs- who may be the hottest 50something girl I've seen.

LemSkroob: I'm not a car guy, so at what point is a classic car still considered authentic if you've replaced the engine, tires, interior, glass, etc, etc. Is the only thing that matters is the frame???

The motor is original.  It may have been rebuilt, but it is the original block.  Alot of collectible cars from 50+ years ago have the frame and the engine stamped with the same serial number.  Keeping those matching is a big deal.  Most of what goes into a restoration is just basic maintenence done in bulk.  You'll strip the original frame of all rust then coat it in rustproofing and paint, you'll replace all the bolts and screws with new hardware.  Chrome will likely need to be re-plated, interiors wear out and need re-upholstering.  New glass is sometimes a price dropper, as the original glass often has factory markings from the time of the car's manufacture.  The more original stuff you can re-use the better.  As the cars get more rare in number, things like original glass and original engine matter alot more as it makes the car that much more rare.  There's alot that goes into the valuation of a restored classic.

I don't know why, but she gives me a vibe like she's a stick attached to her gearbox.

In my brief experience, Craigslist is useless for cars. I put up my '93 Daytona hoping for someone who wanted to restore it, and all I got were scam emails. I stuck it on the ebay classifieds (local listings basically), and got way more interest that way and sold it to a kid who did do some work on it.

Do you get the horn?

PC LOAD LETTER: Horseface with tons of makeup. Looking at her body aches my loins, however.

To each their own I guess. My assessment: car=cool and chick=hot.

I like how she got all period for the shots. Makes me think she is probably a lot of fun in real life

Quigs: Really? We're supposed to give a fark that some whore who swallowed Manson's sword is selling a car?

Go fark yourself subtard. You're an embarrassment to humanity.

Whar Dita pics? Whar?

/ my GIS is brokeded.

That is one fine piece of deco art.

Dita has horrible feedback.

My grandfather owned a 1946 Packard he drove from the factory back to California. On the day my father sold it, it was in showroom new condition. It was a great car. Maybe it's still around, in Jay's garage or someplace like that.

It wasn't just for the shots, that's her thing. And I LOVE it.

I am happy to oblige.

Meh.

Farkette KiwiMoogle84 has a hotter pinup girl look than Dita. More real looking.

I'm not going to tell you what I had to do to got her to send me the private pics but let's just say it was totally worth it!

Magorn: viscountalpha: I have to wonder why people get all crazy just because someone else owned it. it feels really immature like "omg dita's ass was in this car!"

*shrug* I don't get it at all.

The iff chance that the seat would reatin a lingering trace of her "scent" would be enough for a lot of people...

There should be a separate auction for the seats.

In less favorable pictures she is a huge butterface. It's kind of bizarre. Although that's probably true of many models. The lighting, make-up and shooping are a big part of what make a model gorgeous.

ummmmmm ow.  I really hope that is airbrushed.

No. She corsets pretty hardcore. I'm personally not a fan of that.

One of my best buddies is her cousin and grew up with her in Rochester. He has had Thanksgiving Dinners with Marilyn Manson.

I've actually heard he's fairly normal most of the time.

I've seen a few interviews with Manson and he comes across as very intelligent.

I suspect it's due to bad photography, becasue even without makeup she's still pretty good looking

Just curious. Under the glove box, is that a liquor cabinet? I used to have one in the back seat but when I'd go back there to fix myself a martini, the cruise control would cut out and next thing I know, I'm off the sidewalk and back in to traffic.

Am I the only person who doesn't know who Dita Von Teese is?

darth_badger: Dita is a real classy lady and was super nice to my daughter (about 15 at the time). Spent about a half hour with my daughter talking "girl talk" with champagne and caviar too!

Of all the starlets (ie: anyone remotely famous and female) she's on my vanishingly short list of role models. I could never devote the time or enthusiasm to makeup that she does, but my god she seems good at it and so kind in addition.

It is a hot water heater.  Behind the doors is a small radiator that hot water from the engine cooling system would flow through.  A small fan behind it would then blow air through the radiator to heat the cabin.

Hey, you've got the same sets of pictures I have!

I mean... *cough* I would never presume to have asked my husband to download some 400+ pictures of Ms. Von Teese in extensive undress.

viscountalpha: I have to wonder why people get all crazy just because someone else owned it. it feels really immature like "omg dita's ass was in this car!"

*shrug* I don't get it at all.

Depends on the person.  Steve McQueen's Packard?  Hell yeah (iconic celebrity and major gearhead to boot, not to mention a serious rememberance of Americana).

Von Teese?  I wouldn't pay more than normal market for the car.  Her contributions to society at large are pretty nil.

Aidan: Hey, you've got the same sets of pictures I have!

Perish the thought. ;)

Speaking of the makeup she does...

I just like this one.

Have you got her book? If not, try to get your hands on it. I've been told by female friends that it's a very good read, and I can personally vouch for the quality of the images.

Huh.. and then the hinges are in the center to let the double as like adjustable baffles? That's actually pretty clever.

I don't think it's right, I mean, for the expectation that a famous person be as pure as the driven snow.  Fame attracts literally everyone so you tend to go with other famous people because they can at least relate to your lifestyle.

Being famous doesn't make you any different from anyone else.  That's a two way street.  Allow me to explain:
1. You eliminate the effect of a limited market as far as finding a mate.  Someone halfway around the world could get to know you.  Dangerous, however, is they could get to know (and fall for) a character you play, as opposed to the real you.  OR, they could be put off by a character you play.  Imagine if everyone thought Jaleel White was playing his real self as Steve Urkel, for example.  All those myths and shiat about Brian "Marilyn Manson" Warner haunt him and kind of limit him.  He's the kind of guy I could probably talk to for hours without getting bored, but there are those who write him off as some brand of Antichrist.  It's a good biatchfilter, a way to see who's willing to look beyond the stage.

2. You end up with more potential mates than you can handle.  I worry about this.  I think of average people who rose to prominence via YouTube as a really big example of this.  Think of OverlyAttachedGF Laina.  Before her (hilarious) Bieber video, she was just Laina, a girl.  Now she gets hit on for reasons ranging from the shallow "She's cute.  I'd do her." to the limited depth "She's got a cool sense of humor.  I wonder what she'd be like on a date?"  We only see videos.  Her character we see could be just that--a character.  She might be completely different.

Paradox of choice is a big deal.  So many to choose from.  What if I regret my decision?  What if the right one was the one who wasn't right at that particular moment, but who became perfect a few weeks later?  The Internet is packed with this kind of thing.  It used to be that you'd pair off with your high school sweetheart from the same town or your college sweetheart from a few towns (or states) over and last for life.  This doesn't happen as often now.

Propinquity:  It's a weird damn word.  Basically, it's a word that means you'll fall in love with the people you're spending the most time around (friendzone aside since that's a security blanket).  I've seen this in action.  Due to isolation brought on either by locale or resources, sometimes both, I paired off with a coworker once for a few months.  In Hollywood, this is quite common.  Often, it's no big deal if it doesn't work out since you both move on to other films after the one you're working on together wraps up.

In "normal life", it's not that simple.  I've been working at the same place for six years.  I took a big risk dating this one girl.  It didn't pan out because of the nature of post-divorce turbulence for both of us.  Spend the better part of a decade with someone and you become at least somewhat like them.  I recognized this for what it was and decided to work on getting back to being the real me instead of wasting time building my castle on sand, as it were.  I was bummed about the breakup because I genuinely loved her for what she was.  Maybe I was just unattractive at that point in life?

Regardless, she moved on to a new relationship, but I don't see her smile anymore.  That's exactly what I wanted to avoid in my own life and why I took the break I did since my marriage started on not all that different of a foundation.  I wish her luck.  As the ex-boyfriend, that's all I can do.  It's awkward seeing her basically every day, but I did that to myself for the longterm gains.  Life's too damn short to let your dick get in the way of your dreams.

My point:  Finding a mate is a crap-shoot in general.  You try with those you meet.  You don't get to run that side of the program on those you don't meet.  All you can really do is be yourself and run that up your flagpole to see who salutes.  Famous people don't get that luxury unless they're famous for being themselves.  You do.  By doing anything other than that, you'll fail to attract the few who are both doing the same thing and are searching for your flag.

In my case, I look at who I am now versus who I was at the moment of the divorce and I'm disgusted.  Further, I wasn't all that different four months later when I dated the coworker and I had the crushing financial after-effects of the divorce to contend with, as well as hypocritical jealousy directed at she and I, courtesy of the ex-wife.  It was a perfect storm of shiat that drowned us, but every storm ends and you rebuild stronger to meet the new challenges.

So what's going on your flag?

/ Maybe I need to put the rubber to the road and see what fame beyond the local-celebrity species would do to me?  It's not so much that everyone gets 15 minutes of wide-ranging fame these days, it's that everyone is famous to 15 people for a long stretch of time.

More like Dita Von Tease, amirite?

The seller only has a positive feedback rating of 90.3%.

I was going to buy it,,,,but now...not so much.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Somaticasual: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Dita Von Teese, born Brandy Hagenthorp

Eesh

Bizarre. Wiki claims her real name is "Heather Renée Sweet"

That ones probably right. I just made mine up.

Dammit, now you've got me jonesing on Brandy Hagenthorp, and all she is is a name.

It's not bad, but if you're looking for a sub-10K car I'd stick with local listings so you can check the car out if you're really interested.  Ask the seller if you can have it inspected by a mechanic you trust before purchase (you pay for the inspection).  If they say no - don't buy it.

If you're buying long distance, then take the maximum amount you'd spend on the car and cut it in half.  If you're lucky, you get a car that doesn't need any work.  If you aren't lucky, then that second half you can use for repairs.

You know how I know you're an A+++++++ bidder?
