We pretty much know what builders are gone. With that said which ones will not last this time around with that market the way it is? I think it will be the bigger production builders (baja)because of there dependence on the people that are the ones really haveing a hard time now. The custom builders don't depend on same people and they for the most part don't have the overhead. So anyone care to take a guess?

I think Larry is finally and officially retired- but the company still sort of exists.

There are only a few of us pimp. I haven't banned you once. I doubt my compadre's have paid much attention to you either. I prefer to let douchebags like you publicly humiliate yourselves in front of a relatively small group of people that know each other. It makes the site money, and reminds everyone that no matter how bad of a day it is, at least you don't have to resign up for an internet forum everyday that collectively laughs at your general existence.
