Even more sucks for you because they 'fixed' your car. I mean you can possible fix a car like that or 'salvage' title vehicle but that takes a lot of work. My car was 86d and all of the first responders told me that my car was clean and had tasteful mods. I love those Fbody cars and I had an military buddy that had that body style but he had an SS model (last year for that Fbody). I put a nitrous kit on it and that thing was fast!

I loved that car,dark metallic blue, t-tops,and a rare 4 speed tranny.I held on for a few years then traded it in on an '84 Z-28,5spd.t-tops,5.0 High Output motor[Corvette exhaust manifold]and a POS rear end.The rear end had a nylon ring and pinion gear that would just break all the time.Never ending problems with it.

Nice!
Those things had power and fun to drive! Now days the kids are putting LSX Chevy engine in everything! I have to admit though that new Ford GT350 with that flat plane crank V8 is badass too!

I miss the days where I had two fun cars and a crotch rocket! One day I will get a toy and be able to wrench on it! All though probably not a motorcycle.

Yes, it has already happened (to a point).
Both Amazon and NF has 4K movies and series available for streaming...some are even encoded with HDR.
And they really do look awesome compared to 1080p.

This is the 1st weekend that guys have been able to watch the UHD disks in their new Samsung players.
The question you ask (I think) is which source will be the best for watching 4K?
In the threads I have been reading today, it appears everything is too chaotic right now to make a comparo (everyone is trying to figure out which is the best setup to use).
FWIW, my guess it will be the disks, just as it is when comparing BDs to 1080p streams.
Disks are not limited by bandwidth, network speed, etc.

Atmos/DTSx.
AFAIK, lossless, of any type, is not available for streaming.

will that spur the ISPs to finally upgrade the Internet structure nationwide so it can become viable for everyone?
We can hope.

Oh I just read somewhere that NF moved all its data to Amazon. Kinda nuts but Bezos is making money on both fronts!http://www.engadget.com/2016/02/12/n...mazon-servers/
Hmmmm, that's interesting...

Just so you know, we took a poll via PMs today and it was decided YOU would be the lucky member to buy one first and report back to us on its performance.

Good to know and streaming is stepping up their game!


I love that Mustang and the price is right! My wife on the other hand doesn't like new Mustangs. But she hasn't driven that GT350! Next to a C7 Vette (base) that Mustang is probably one of the best track cars out there for the price. Or maybe the newest Camaro but I haven't seen much about them yet.
