Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

A HUGE pile of used books. Found a used bookstore nearby (relatively) of which I was previously unaware. SO HAPPY! It's a really nice one in a town less than 1/2 hour from me, that I often visit anyway for other stuff. I'd just never been down the road it was on before. I love finding a new store to clean out.

My gf has something similar in "midnight blue". Which is a posh word for dark-as-hell blue.

I'll get stung on the import duty, but if it keeps her happy then its all good
Sometimes packages get in under the radar, depending on what exactly is on the customs form, but yeah, you're probably going to get billed duty. What bugs me more are the handling fees from couriers when this happens.

It's a useful colour though; historically, the thinking behind using it for evening items is that it doesn't get that greeny-yellow cast to it under artificial lights that cheap black dyes can sometimes get. Midnight blue instead just looks like a true/jet black under those conditions. Modern artificial lights and better black dyes make this factor less relevant these days, but I still quite like it as a shade. I have a tux in midnight blue that definitely exhibits this behaviour of appearing black at night. I also have a regular suit in midnight blue but I use that more during the day for work - where it appears like the darkest possible navy - than I do for evening events.

The perils of a custom paint-job...

... I actually quite like the idea of a really dark aubergine coloured car. Would look awesome on a supercar full of edges or swoops to catch the light!

Well, my Mercedes 190d hardly qualifies as a supercar, but Lady B did have a 372bhp Cosworth engine. And turbo, we mustn't forget the turbo.

Everyone forgets a turbo. Well, until about two or three seconds after flooring the throttle.

Isn't this place great? The conversation goes from evening dresses to drag racing.

Well now that you mention it.

The only Mercedes I ever lost against was an MB SLS. I've smoked two older Ferraris and a Corvette C5. Not bad for a 28 year old, ain't it?

Although, i dont stand a chance against my team's Peugeot 205 GTI. With the new modifications the engine should put out somewhere around 450bhp. That might not sound like much, but don't forget that the car weighs 800kg with a driver and a full tank.

I guess Australians are lucky. We don't have to pay duty or tax on a postal item if the parcel is valued at less than $1000.

How else to get the girl to the party she's wearing the dress at on time?

SLS is something like a 3.5s 0-60, isn't it?

Remind me not to get into a traffic light race with you in my S4. If you're only just beaten by an SLS, I'd look like I'm standing still.

I wouldnt go as far as to say I just lost, but i kept up pretty well regardless. But i believe driving skill had a lot to do with it. I doubt i would've even stood a chance against a driver that could handle himself in that car. And i've got three years and god knows how many hours of racing experience.
