Default Re: Has the economy affected your business?

It appears I've hijacked my own thread, but what the heck.

I bought a Mazda 323 back in 1989. $6500 new. I put over 100K miles on it - including driving it across the country - before I sold it to a grad student in 2000. He drove it all over, and sold it to someone else. They sold it to someone who is onw one of my grad students! Talk about small world. It's got over 300K miles on it, and still going strong. The student says it's a bit noisy over 70 miles an hour - but it was when I owned it, too!

Good luck in getting a hybrid. I wish they were about $10K cheaper...
I don't have as many Festools as Fred. Or Marcou's, or Brese's, or Lie-Nielsen's, or Lee Valley's, or Blue Spruce's, or Harold and Saxon's, or...
