I spend most of my money on hookers and blow, the rest I just waste.:hihi:


I have several of the above mentioned drains. I'm restoring an old Camaro, I keep a reef aquarium, I play and collect guitars, I have 3 motorcycles, I guess my answer is all of the above.

When you start thinking about selling, you hit up your forum friendly realtor, ssimaniac, for some advice.

Schecters are just fantastic.

I have an Ibanez RG7421XL with Di'Marzio blaze pickups for when I want to tune below C. But I LOVE my C-1.

I put together a home entertainment system that is acceptable, but could be better. Surround speakers are outclassed by my two ESS AMT1A speakers. Maybe I'll upgrade. I hid all of my cables and wall mounted the Plasma TV (60" Panasonic). I also built a HTPC for the system. I've installed pet doors on inside doors and one through the wall, and redid my downstairs bathroom with one of those bowl sinks that sit on top of the countertop for the wife. Oh yeah, got my engine apart for a radical build of my 2011 3.7L V6. All parts are almost done. Been apart since June. Hope to make lots and lots of SC horsepower. New forged internals, revised blower setup, ported and polished heads stroked engine, lots of money and time.

Once college rolled around we neither had the time nor money to continue. I actually haven't seen my buddy in a few years now.

WOW. I've seen sci-fi movies with less impressive looking machines than those.

With two Ford V8s in the garage, I end up spending alot on premium, LOL, but I can't complain, that's the only thing the '61 has needed for the last 2+ years aside from a new (reproduction vintage) battery, knock on metallic vinyl. :hihi:

Aside from the Raxioms, I haven't done much to the Mustang at all but I do find myself drawn to the Cervini's Mach One hood page over and over. I'd say it's only a matter of time.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.
