Ah! Congrats, dex, I know you've been looking forward to this one! :D

Recent eBay purchase: Cinema 4D XL 6, a mid-level 3D animation package from 2000. Was available for both Mac & PC. Popular in broadcast and was roughly on par with packages like LightWave and ElectricImage.

A 3D artist named Phil McNally used it to create a personal animated short called "Pump Action" in 2000, then went on to work for ILM, Disney, & DreamWorks as an animator / stereoscopic supervisor.

It's not quite on the same level as 3dsmax / Maya / Softimage / Houdini / PowerAnimator / whatever, but it seems to have been a pretty well-respected package and is still actively in production. I've never had a chance to play with it until now.

Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS, from eBay. Not really my latest purchase, I had intended to plug this into my Fuel but since it
decided to go on a summer break it has now gone into the VW320 as it it supported by Windows 2000.

NICE. I drove a BiTurbo once and it was surprisingly fast. Love the aggressive look too. But man, the reliability issues would scare me off. How will you handle it - do you have a shop or a good mechanic? And have the issues been solved over the years? Such a cool car if it can be kept running on a reasonable budget.

Importing an 80's Italian car from Poland, you are either incredibly brave, or foolish :lol:

I always liked the 'square' look. Also the old Lancia Delta Integrale. Hope there's not too much rust and electrical gremlins hiding inside.
