I got short-changed on the grandpa department. Never really knew either one. I was little when both died.

Can I graduate from Forum Geezer to honorary grandpa? (don't expect b'day or Christmas presents! )

You can definitely be honorary grandpa.

I resisted picking on CJ for calling Matt old because I knew it was only a matter of time before you or DF came in here and trumped me.

But seriously, any of you guys just love buying booze, lottery tickets, cigs and getting to vote? I know I sure do.

I just didn't get caught. (And both fenderbenders I've been in weren't my fault)

Used to, about 40+ years ago. Now I just love getting to vote, by far the most important privilege of all.

Sorry for parking in Egypt guys

I missed the 1jz swaps, definitely disappointed as that thought is on my mind for my calypso coupe...

Wide body pics;






Right before heading home Sunday;





It was nice to meet those of you that introduced yourselves! Maybe next year I'll have a big boy motor intstalled

It was kind of a heap, I snuffled around it when I did my big walk through to take photos. My guess is that someone threw it together to be a beater drift car and just wasn't concerned with the finer points because they might smash it off anyway. It looked like a death race car but more fragile.

It seems ironic... You'd think if you'd need a widebody then you'd also need light weight. If you need light weight, you won't make some bondo mess widebody kit
