    OT: Prayers for the Tsunami victims...

    As we discuss our $70k+ Porsches, RMS leaks, "System Errors Return to Workshop" messages, poor PCNA customer service, the dash clock from the sport chrono package, to "full leather" or not, GT silver vs. Cobalt blue (guilty here), TPMS, Sport exhaust, Carbon not available...let's all try to contribute a little (even just a moment of silence) to a charity for the utter devastation this earthquake has wrought. Now over 80,000 dead...

    My deepest sympathies to those that might have lost loved ones from this board...

    Re: OT: Prayers for the Tsunami victims...

    Well said. It does make our car related problems and decisons pale into insignificance. From paradise to hell in little more than a blink of an eye.
    I am sure all here echo your sentiments

    Re: OT: Prayers for the Tsunami victims...

    Thanks alin2. My heart goes out to all people that lost their loved ones.

    Re: OT: Prayers for the Tsunami victims...

    Re: OT: Prayers for the Tsunami victims...

    I see lots of peole from US over here. The US gov't is spending billions to bring democracy to Iraq, I say you call up your senator or congressmen and request them to do more than mere $35Million for the Tsunami victims.

    That headline is anything but crap. The $35M was the first check written overnight, so to speak. The State Department has already allocated $1B. The US is the greatest world donor and that's OK, but other countries should contribute too and for the most part, they do not... Europe in particular and that is wrong. And what is Canada contributing?

    We are going off - topic here guys. Rennteam don't do politics. Lets just give our thoughts, sympathy and prayers for the poor innocent victims of this terrible tragedy.

    Re: OT: Prayers for the Tsunami victims...

    Well said. The papers make even sadder reading this morning in London.
    Forget politics, do your own thing and make a contribution.

    Re: OT: Prayers for the Tsunami victims...

    Friends, we all are blessed to own such beautiful sports cars and some of us are even blessed with beautiful wifes, children, houses and other wonderful things in life.
    Please donate a buck or two for the victims of the flood catastrophy. Life has been good to us, let US be good to other people who are desperate now. I don't ask you to give away your car, your house or your last money. Just the value of filling up your car with fuel once or twice or so.
    It won't hurt you and it surely will make a difference if each of us gives a little bit. Thanks.

    Re: OT: Prayers for the Tsunami victims...

    RC,

    I like the idea of the monetary equivalent of 2 tankfuls of gas/petrol as a starting point.

    What a catastrophe. Now with the death toll estimated at >100,000.
