People still respect Dibs (money). It is the unsubstantiated monopoly claims that gets no respect.

What's killing me about this is I can's stop thinking "but is the timing correct?"

From what I remember reading he had a Volvo guru help out on the layout.
I frankly have no idea.

Find myself saying that a lot anymore...right up there with " I forgot ".

Thanks for the kind words, Sveedy! The timing was debated and resolved on Swedespeed by people far more knowledgeable than I. I may not have the know-how to make those determinations…but definitely wouldn't produce something that was inaccurate. So, if that's keeping anyone up at night, know I did my due diligence. :)

I'm also fiercely committed to rowing my own gears. I've had one M47, four M56 cars, and an M66. Playing off the humor how a manual transmission is one of the best anti-theft devices you have in a car, I also printed a run of the faux security stickers below:
