Trust me, if I could get any one of the Cervini's hoods shipped over here I'd already have one. I will be back in the good ole USofA in a few years and then I'll pick one up for cheap...assuming I still have this Mustang by then.

PS. Christmas is coming up guys...if any of you decide to take a trip to Germany bring a hood with you. I'll put you up in my house and buy all the beer you can possibly drink.

Sporting events are what get a lot of my money. I have season tickets for OU football and I share season tickets for the OKC Thunder. Between the tickets, tailgating before OU games, going to the bar before Thunder games, and beer during the games that adds up to a pretty good chunk of change. It is a lot of fun so it is worth the cash. Other than that playing golf and slow pitch softball are my other hobbies.

Well to keep this slightly car related I got the windows tinted today.

back to the 10mm, I have fit the frame, slide, barrel, bushing, thumb safety, front sight, grip safety, blended the rear of the slide to the frame and blended the grip safety, also trimmed dust cover flush with slide. Still on the to do list: fit rear sight, full trigger job, ream chamber to depth, melt/dehorn all edges, media blast, Parkerize, and Cerakote. I am sure I am forgetting something but those are the high points.

What else do you spend your $$ on?-imag0344.jpg

13 GT base, 3.55, Sterling Grey, MGW shifter, BMR LCA's, GT500 AB, silver RTR's, 275/40/19 Michelin pilot super sports, more stereo equipment than I will admit to, more parts to come.

I dont really do anything except for go to work and go to the gym.

I wish I could afford a proper home gym, but that would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars for what i want/need.

Well, I am a stay at home Dad when I am not out doing a show, working in a studio, or on a tour from time to time. My various spending happens to be on things around the house, the kids, or my wife. Being that the house IS my office, I tend to change things around quite often. Still enjoy tinkering with the car, but since that's a garage queen I figure I have nothing but time.

Why is everyone putting "Gym" down as an option? Even if you go to an expensive as f*ck gym, it's like what $70 a month? I wouldn't call that a huge drain on cash.

For myself:
  • Building computers (not quite sli 580s, but close)
  • Student Loans
  • Buying random technology I don't need
  • Food/Restaurants/Beer
  • Student Loans
  • Traveling

I guess I interpreted the thread a little wrong as i read through. When i said gym i was more talking about activities and interests and what i would like to spend money on in the future.

Fair enough. They do say time is money. So the things you spend a lot of time on could be construed as money

#1 House stuff... While we just bought a fairly new house (2002 vintage), the honey do list is growing at an alarming rate. Paint this, floor that, run CAT 6 through those rooms, brick this; you get the point.

Which brings me to my next big spender -

#2 Tools. I have bought and continue to buy ridiculous amounts of tools and such. I have tools that I have not and probably never will use, but if I do, oh man they'll work awesome....

Most of them are auto repair or electronic related, so the house work means I have to buy woodworking stuff too now. It's a vicious circle.

I also have a '74 Challenger, which being a Mopar means I am guaranteed to spend 2-3x more to achieve the same goals as a Chevy or Ford. Yay me.

2011 GT 6MT (Cookie Monster) - The 1/4 life crisis. Brembos, 401A, drop top, Grabber Blue.

1974 Dodge Challenger - The money pit. 408 SB stroker, Megasquirt 2 EFI, 904TF, 3.91 gears. 16MPG and 520HP goodness

2004 Hyundai Tiburon - The winter beater.
