Just like last year, I’m your DSM Shootout guide. This year is very special because the world famous 1320 video will be there providing coverage. Expect insanity. Bonus Mirage pics inside.
My best friend, my right hand man, and my MVP of the day just sent me these photos of a new RAM. Take notice to the 8 lug wheels and the crazy front suspension arm setup on the last photo, zoom in on it.
Well, used to hauling Amazon and other basic stuff. Last night I hauled this:
Don’t crucify me, took the pictures driving so couldn’t rotate my phone. Had historical plates so not sure if it was a real car or not. Not super well versed on these. Spotted outside Dayton Ohio.
By this point you all know me; I’m the guy that owns old Audi, Maserati and other obscure cars throughout time. I’ve been in the DSM scene for ages and have written all about that as well. I currently own a beautiful 90 TSi and my buddy Nathan and I have tons of friends with DSMs.
At Applebees where I took myself and the girlfriend on a day date.
That is all.
Three weeks straight without being home or stopping. Running until Tuesday or Wednesday and start my new job on Monday the 23rd. It’s bittersweet in a way honestly; leaving behind the known for the unknown.
Alrighty, here’s my rant of the day. Dealing with people on properties is the absolute worst. Trying to find a rental property in the Dayton/Fairborn/Huber Heights/Tipp City Ohio area is quite frustrating.
Well I got lucky for once. I’m typically plagued with the worst luck of anyone on this planet. I caught a break though, and got a phone call I’d dreamed of getting.
Got these solid engine mounts from a buddy of mine that were rusty but trusty. The first picture was after lots and lots of wire wheel activity. My daughter decided she wanted to get dirty with a wire brush and scotch brite, so this happened.
Chances are that you’ve seen me post about my 1990 Eagle Talon TSi. It’s come so far since when it hit the driveway, and the journey still has many trials and tribulations ahead.
Nathan’s 1968 Dodge Dart. This car is the longest he’s ever owned a vehicle. Many of you have asked about this car upon spotting it in garage photos. It’s always been insanely reliable.
Dropped $30 a can of 3M adhesive remover. Been wanting to debadge the Shitsubishi. 3M adhesive remover is absolutely amazing stuff. Turned the old badge glue into mucus like liquid that I was able to remove very easily.
A few months back you may remember me writing a piece about my friend Austin’s SRT4 we went to pick up at his old home in Indianapolis. He’s owned it for years. Today, we swapped the summer wheels and tires back on, detailed the interior, performed an oil change and did the power steering belt.
Bored and have tons of 3M carbon fiber vinyl left. So, suppose I had to do the first Mirage rice mod. Actually breaks up nice on the orange if I do say so myself.
We have some yuck weather coming in. So what do I do? A full detail on the Shitsubishi of course!
$700 dollars later, I’m ready for a revival.
It’s been a minute, and I’ve missed posting! Life has been pretty crazy, but here’s some updates on the projects in the garage.
