I do. I also agree with the 525. It's because it has the hottest cam of all the Mercury Racing engines since it is the only NA one! Here is mine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7H6zNFH8f0

You can piss away as much time as you have on Ebay - Boats, Cars, Bikes, Guns, Concerts!! It is all there and you can waste your entire day if you're not careful.

Default time

At 63 years old I would ask that we all consider our priority list on how we spend our time. Seafordguy has the right idea. I believe that the really rewarding times are with real people not virtual reality. If we live our lives vicariously we miss out on the real deal. And they aren't making anymore time. Just my perspective. Quent
