This past fall, I encountered a problem that prevented me from posting pictures on my site. My outstanding programmer, Taso Prantalos, fixed the problem by upgrading my WordPress blogging system. But it brings an unfortunate side effect of opening up my site to a regular flood of comments, most of which are spam. I’ve gotten pretty good at identifying which ones are spam by the pattern of vague references, broken English, overt flattery and totally unrelated comments that usually pitch other products.
Here is a sample of some of the best spam of 2010:

It all depends on what you want really. If you have to have full coverage, it’s going to be a lot more expensive than if you just want liability coverage. Most insurance companies don’t differentiate between a stock and “modified” motor unless the modifications involve nitrous/supercharger/turbo. They mainly just care what make and model the car is, and how many cylinders it has. I would say that with the Camaro’s reputation as a sports car, the AMX would be cheaper to insure.
