I sent the terry cloths to hell this morning


Cleaned up years of gunk/dirt and used up half a bottle of purple power lol

went for a drive and of course the leak im trying to find strike again by the time it hits the ground its not hot anymore but room temp (or outside temp?)

so i guess im leaking oil from my cam sensor

and its running down the block and leaving the front of the oil shiny and the back of the pan dripping

I bought my LM Reps for 450...

They are STR... I'm never going to pay over 500 for a set of wheels...
Unless they are a killer price for some BBS RS or Te37s...

I think it's the popped out round headlights and the big, open rectangular grill? Had a '64 Midget MKI, or I should say the wife had one when we first met. Fun little car! Took tons of maintenance to keep things working....

Believe it or not, one of my neighbors left a moving car onto ICE, fell onto his ass. He is just an idiot, wasn't drunk at the time.

I have a friend who; under the influence of alcohol opened the door of my crown victoria while we were driving, and attempted to "ski" across the pavement. As soon as his shoes touched the pavement though he was pulled out of the car and I proceded to run his foot over. Scariest moment ever. My other friend and I thought we had killed him. Just goes to show you can only do so much from the drivers seat. If the passenger wants to be a moron, there's no much stopping them.
