  1. Bailouts were not free money. In the case of CitiBank the government received a substantial equity stake in exchange. And that equity stake was sold for a significant profit. Government banks $15 billion on Citigroup bailout | Fortune In the case of GM the equity stake was sold for a net loss, but probably could have been held onto longer for a profit. Government sells last of its GM shares - USA Today U.S. taxpayers no longer own any of automaker General Motors. The Treasury sold the last of its remaining 31.1 million GM shares today. It started with 500 million shares in 2010. The taxpayer loss on the GM bailout is $10.5 billion. The Treasury department said it recovered $39 billion from selling its GM stake, and had put $49.5 billion of taxpayer money directly into the GM bailout.

    Studebaker Buyer's Tips

    Someone in my neighborhood has a Studebaker pickup. It's a big one though, a long bed. Never seen one like that before until I saw it driving around the neighborhood.

    Studebaker Buyer's Tips

    1929 Studebaker President I have the feeling you are talking about more recent models. But there are many Studebaker's. Do you have a year range in mind, or even a particular model?

    1936 Chrysler Airstream Convertible

    You answered the question before I had a chance to ask it: Where were the pictures stolen from. Sometimes this can be discovered simply by "right click" on the picture, then choose the option in the pop-up window "search google for image." Then you may see the exact same image among a bunch of images, but it will be from another website besides eBay or Craigslist, and likely a much more reputable antique car dealer.

    I bet he considers where the inquiry is coming from, then locates the vehicle a few thousand miles from there so as not to allow for in-person visits.

    Could be one of those deals where the seller will take a deposit, then you never hear another word from them. I got scammed out of $200. The seller had positive feedback. I made a purchase and sent the "postal money order" as the auction required back then. eBay no longer allows that as a sole payment option. But anyway, even though the seller had positive feedback, I later found he had 5 pending disputes for failure to deliver paid for items. The other buyers had not been able to leave negative feedback while their disputes were being looked into. I should have, but didn't, know about those pending disputes. So, it was a good seller, who decided to go rogue, rip off a bunch of people all at once, then disappear. I had bid on a touring bicycle, a vintage Trek, and lost out on it. eBay then recommended to me to buy this other "similar" bike with a "buy now" on it. Which i did and there's where I got scammed. So eBay recommended me to buy the bike from this other fellow when they knew he had several pending disputes against him.

    The toy box and the big shop, my New shop Build.

    Several of my neighbors have metal buildings. I think they look really out of place in a residential area. You have tall, new metal buildings next to older, relatively small wood frame homes. The metal buildings usually dwarf the house. Some of them have high roll-up doors so you could drive an RV into it. My home has redwood ship-lap siding. I wouldn't mind having a metal roof on the detached garage though.
