Cars

Recommended Posts

Already did.

If it is a nice restoration of a classic, then I am all for it.

But did it really cost $150k for an old Ford pick-up? I know this thing is expensive, but crate engines are ridiculously cheap and I know a guy who restores cars on his own free time in Norway, and he hasn't spent over $100k on each. And he takes real beaters.

 

But can you manage pics?

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

I was a bit lazy to run up to my room and get my phone/camera when they were here, so i don't have any pictures of it myself. I can try lurk on his Facebook page and get a picture or two though. As for the restoration price, well i'm not really sure why it was that much. I know labor wasn't the problem, since it was all done for free. I assume it's probably just because of the parts he used then. Maybe he went for top of the line on everything.

Mine wouldn't start up this morning and I had to get my dad to boost me.

Then when I left college to go back home it wouldn't start up and had to get somebody to boost me, again.

 

Stupid winter. *shakes fist at stupidly low temperatures*

I'm considering a retired police dodge charger 2006-8 as my next car but my dad thought it'd be too expensive to replace parts when needed. Is that true?

Well I'm back as promised with photos of my car after bodywork and parts installment. Here's some photo's someone took of my car at the Annual SoWo show in Helen, GA the weekend of May 17th. The show is supposed to mock the actual Worthersee Tour in Austria every year. It is held in the Bavarian themed town (Helen) of the mountains of Georgia. Beautiful place, tons and tons of fun.
