Not a single cop around, pure hooliganism, felt good to be alive, but I sh!t on all the stupid drivers out there.

    ^^ Ghost - with the right prep, I'm sure they could. Every now and then, we would paint them to match the body when I was at the dealer....

    April 14th in Minnesota. This picture doesn't even do it justice. So far about 10+" of snow today and another 4-8" expected through tomorrow evening. So much fun until you unexpectedly try to plow through 10+ inches without enough momentum to get through. This picture is after getting myself unstuck.

    Here on the East Coast we experienced 68 degree days with sunshine and grass that needed mowing. Dogwood trees and Cherry trees in full bloom. Oh, did I mention sunshine that was so hot I worked in the yard in a tee shirt?

    Swapped out the snow tires for its summer wheels. Started pulling the interior bits for my black interior swap.
    Need to spend $300. on misc. interior parts so it all looks good.

    Just listen to the sound of the engine. Isn't that the answer? If you don't understand it, it's not my problem". alex zanardi

    ok...ok...get yer foot off my neck will ya !! hahaha....

    I (we...) still live here for many reasons....
    • My wife's parents are here...(she's an only child and I promised her mom I would get her here years ago....so here we is !! )
    • one of our kids just finished his 1st year of HS, the other is younger but still..., and we love the schools system (and we live right near all the schools...)
    • my wife works for one of the local schools
    • I love the seasons....(except for winter...)
    • I wanted to own a home with no a/c (not !!! but we really do...)
    • I have many many months to hone my drifting skills sharp as a razor without having to pay for track time
    • I want to piss my in laws off by running winter tires on my cars despite their claims of no need
    • I wanted to own a pair of long pants (not really, but I did have to buy a pair when we moved here...pretty sure I still have them...somewhere....)
    • why on earth would I have wanted to continue to live in Florida ?? lmao !!! I spent 20 years there...is that too long..? too short ? or am I just a rolling stone...? my father in law claims I'm stupid. I should have held out and they would have moved back to Florida. (I still owe him drinks for that maneuver..)
    • I have a great job with Parker here...but I did check the box next to "Globally" on my development program document regarding "willingness to relocate..."... I would have checked "F#$^&ing Globally" had there been the option...)


    And don't go gettin' all mr. sassy-pants 'bout your t-shirt-ed yard work adventure there Stephen. (lol...) I will be forced into one-up-manship. I, my dear friend, wear shorts ALL year here except for the standard 'business casual' fare I must endure for work. Yes...I hang lights on the house...clear the drive...work on cars...pump gas...whatever....sometimes in the snow....always in shorts...regardless even of sub-zero temps.

    oh...plus I can shoot of massive amounts of fireworks without getting any $#!t from anyone....(except the neighbors across the road that complained the year that we DIDN'T do our annual display...hehehe)

    enjoy your weather there Stephen...despite it making me slightly jealous, I will not succumb to your short-sleeved taunting...!!

    You ohtsu look at better tires, why risk your life, and the lives of your loved ones, especially the E39’s existence, on cheap tires, just to save a buck. But I do know Ohtsu has been around making tires for crapcans, trucks, and heavy equipment for some time now, you never know.
