I need to ask a favor of you, please check your Discord. In the meantime, for all others, enjoy the DOTS I found on my phone.
I arrived damn early. Took the time to also do a little cosmetic tinkering on the Queen.
Not a replica. Not a copy. The real, actual mustang that got sold to the stuntman from the movie. This should be a major attraction to any locals.
It seems that my right toe has been afflicted with the same problem my left toe was treated for. It’s leaking a lot of fluids and dull aches. I initially intended to have it taken care of the weekend after the oppomeet, but I decided to bump that up to this Friday. So that means I’ll be showing up with a surgical shoe…
Blew up my back left muscles coughing in bed. Yaaaay for excruciating pain!
I’m in the market for a good dash camera that can record both front and back at 1080p, and has excellent night vision. It’ll also need to be capable of operating reliably in the summer (heat resistance). And most certainly preferably one that doesn’t have excessive features (like speedometer, I don’t need to be…
Who’s going? I’m on the fence since we got a meet planned this month there. Plus, the Queen sure as shit isn’t ready for showtime.
I’ve decided to get a PB6 fender guard assembly to go onto to my PB400 pushbars, and the real kicker is this: I’m going to take them to a local powder coat shop and get them chromed.
I ain’t saying what the security feature is. But it exists. That aside, I’ve taken the time to clean up the car considerably, so there’s no debris on the interior now, and had the floor swapped with one from another car. I also had the steering wheel swapped — my friend took care of it for me.
Watching Station 19 on my break at work, they had a segment where they showed an ambulance doing the tire squeal. I mean, no. That thing is heavy as fuck, ain’t going to spin the tires. Instead of doing that, do a sound bite of the engine accelerating.
A paint concept of Killer Queen. FM7 doesn’t have the PB400 pushbars and the PB5 fender guards, those are getting painted in the same color as the body, so they’ll contrast nicely with the black bumper.
I also grabbed an airbag assembly off of the ‘08 CVPI at the Pick and Pull, it’s in better condition than the airbag cover on my car. Gonna throw this onto the car in a couple weeks and then head to Marysville Ford to get the Cruise Control enabled.
And people wonder why California is trying to crack down on these sideshows.
I’ve been trying to disenroll from Medicare for the last few months after realizing that when my SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) ended, it did not automatically disenroll me from the mandated medical coverage.
The North Cascades Scenic Highway is reopening soon. I’ll probably drive round trip sometime this summer.
After the winter storm and having a blown front shock, I decided to splurge further on a new set of tires. After some ruminating and discussions with my roommate, I settled on a set of ultra-high performance grand touring tires from Cooper Tires. This review covers dry performance, as we haven’t had any rain yet.
This is my ride for tonight. What are you doing this weekend, Oppo?
New tires, new front shocks, new swaybar end links. Rides well, but hearing an odd clattering like something’s bouncing around at high speed. Not too concerned. Meanwhile, identify that car for me. :D
Nissan Rogue with Louisiana plates. Enterprise, I don’t need another reason to hate crossovers or SUVs. Meanwhile, the Queen is taking a sabbatical because of a blown shock. Replacements have been ordered and will ship directly to my mechanic. I'm also debating on getting the all season tires during the service.
