Mein Auto: A dream
Background on the situation: Last april fools my aunt got me really good. the old manager at my job was resigning and a new one was being put into the store. She knew that i recentally got written up and having been being with the company for 17 years she knew she could mess around and not get yelled at so she did. She put my check in the office and she printed out a piece of paper that said : Due to the change in management people that have recentally been written up are going to be on a probation period for 6 weeks with the MAXIMUM of 15 hours a week. Sorry for any inconvience this causes" i read the whole thing and started flipping out like what the **** is that **** i have to get another job and everything. like i was pissed and yelling at the manager who kept her cool quite well.... my aunt then walked up to me and said April fools bitch. and i knew right away like **** i forgot which day it was........ EERRRGGGG. Emily was waiting in the car so i peaced out fast knowing like i was just pranked pretty damn good.

My prank thats going to be on her next april she will NOT top. this is my plan.

Im going to see if she works on that day. im going to pay a tow truck driver to go to friendlys and "tow her car" for what ever reason. Im going to fill someone in at friendly's about it.. and have then "go outside to smoke a cig" then they are going to go tell her who is working inside that her car is getting towed. i plan to be sitting in the passanger seat. hood up and her not reconizing me. her coming out and FLIPPING out on the truck driver and the driver saying like we are forced to repo it... (its fully paid for) and have paper work saying its all correct and everything. correct vehicle. shes going to flip out possibly cry and everything. Then i get out of the truck and BAM april fools bitch.

Thoughts?

If you can pull that off without getting in trouble, then I would say that tops her prank.

I don't know if you'll be able to get a tow truck driver to go along with your plan, however.

Must say. Im pretty fvcking annoyed. Apparently I have a spending problem, because I come across good deals and have money to buy the things I buy.

I only owe one person money, and thats the snap-on guy. I owe him about 200 and I'm making 30/week payments. I have enough money to pay him off tomorrow though. Doesnt sound like I have a money problem.

Then pay him off tomorrow and be done with it. I hate having things hanging over my head like that. That's why I never borrow money, only cash up front.

No, I wish I got to travel the world photographic races, though. Speaking of races... Here's a nice video of an E36 and E46 rally car - great engine noises. I've been watching it over and over again with my headphones on.



And there is some more footage of the rally here, with all kinds of cars (including some more E36s):

I don't really "need" them, I just ordered them because I figured it was cheap insurance against having to pay shipping to get a couple if I broke one. I'm sure I'll order something else from ECS before I get around to really tearing into the body work so if I decide I want more of them it won't be a problem. I also have a metric ass ton of the little rubber grommets that go on the clips, so if you need some of those I can toss a few in as well. PM me your mailing address and I'll let you know what it'll cost for me to ship them.

Was the video taken with the cell-phone Abe Lincoln used. edit: video is better than picture

In other news. Got new tires for the truck. 4 coopers for 410. I think it's pretty good. Trying to fix it up good before bmw comes along and steals all the money.

Next is suspension, clutch, and other little stuff. How hard would it be to drop a transmission with just a floor jack and some helping hands. Truck is lowered too.

transmissions suck. as long as you have room to drop the tranny and have the jack under, you should be okay.

damn you frank...
