    its when a car is over 25 years old in denmark then you can have veteran insurance on it that cost like 20% of normal insurance, the only bad thing is that you are only allowed to drive in it from april or something to october/november

    but with the shitty winter weather i should not be driving it in the winter anyways, it would be a pile of rust in no time, the danish roads are filled with salt in the winter time

    Yes, its really rare nowaday. Last week I seen an old lady driving a TSI talon Mint as hell, im like she has no idea what kind of potential that thing has:laugh:

    BTW I have a somewhat rare version SVT Focus ( i know its a focus) but they only made 10K of them I have #3998. It has 6-speed Getrag (same as mini cooper S) Cosworth tuned 170hp engine as opposed to 140hp, Tuned suspension, leather interior and a few other things+ plus the mods ive done:pimp:

    That kinda sucks you are restricted to the time you can drive it. But if you say you shouldn't be anyways, then it's not so bad then I guess.

    nah its not THAT bad:laugh: but when you have that kinda car then you dont wanna see it int the freakin gragae for 6months , and btw, its the same about MC's except for offroad machines, and with MC's it dont matter if its from 2009 or from 1938:laugh: so i'm happy im not using those things :roll: and besides, take this car for example http://www.dodge.com/en/2009/viper/ it costs 91220$ in the US, in Denmark, the exact same model costs around 375000 $ because of our crazy car taxes :roll:

    Nice, but is it running ?;) You are slowing down the very good 4330 PPD average for this rig.

    I guess I have to produce a photo of my rig in the near future. There are no yellow wire strips but everything else.

    :). I can see in the stats that it most have run close to 24/7. The photo was taken at 1/30" and that speed the fans would have been blured, thats why I know it was not running.

    At the time i took that pic i didn't have it running because i just got it back together :laugh: but about 2mins after the pic i had it back running again. It runs as close to 24/7 as possible. It only has been off for switching GPUs,take it out of the case,cleaning,put back in the case... Its had about 5hrs of downtime since i have owned it.

    Lookin' good, what are the specs of those rigs?

    Nice PSU setup :p
    Personally, I could never have a PSU without a fan grill, I drop a lot of screws :eek:

    I personally haven't dropped any screws in the PSU. I tend to be good about not dropping screws at all

    have to remember that its out on a bench with no dust filters :p

    it may seem very dusty but it really isnt, its mainly the camera itself.

    That's quite an unusual NB cooler. On the first shot I was thinking "Is that a lock?" hehe. Looking great!

    I normally don't like posting pics, cos I'm using a phone camera :S

    The insides are the same as the ones i had inside the HTPC. But I just bought a NZXT Beta EVO case and an Enermax Pro82+ 425W PSU. Now I can fit the TRUE to keep temps down and computer almost silent. But more importantly, this is what I will use to house the upcoming i7 cruncher. Although I'll probably get some 140mm fans for the case.

    I think it's quite funny the TRUE is almost the same size as the mobo :laugh:
