and that my skills are impressive, but lethal.

RIP Doug. Press F to pay respects.
Found this on my hard drive. Still a classic.
I have to drive one around all day at work. They’ve got terrible suspension - leaf springs front and rear. The one I’m stuck with is rated for 800lbs in the bed, so it bounces all over the place.
Sadly, they didn’t let me drive this one this time. Elio’s Head of Media Relations was taking her first vacation in 3 years, so there wasn’t anyone to give the go-ahead.

Surprisingly not a big size difference between 195/75R14 and 215/65R16.
The hardest part had been getting the team together and working, you know, as a team. It’s always the way it goes with these big jobs. You’ve got the couple gloryhounds, and they try to aggravate the quiet guys who are there to do their job, and stuff goes to shit real fast. It took a month to get the egos to flare…
I’ve found a 1987 Nissan Pulsar NX with no visible rust, 120k miles, the 1.6L with a 5-speed, and BOTH the sportback and notchback, for $1500.
Winter can fuck off anytime now, thanks.
So, a mini truck project has dropped into my lap recently.
So, I got a motorcycle. 1994 Kawasaki Ninja 250 - 9300 miles, $750. I got it running today, so I figured I should look into getting it registered and plated. In Wisconsin, bike plates are good for two years, and expire at the end of April in even-numbered years. With any plate option, title fees are $69.50.

Some booty shots for all of you.
GM had some issues at their presentation.
Found this pretty lady in the Alfa booth.
Spotted in traffic down on South Woodlawn Ave.
It’s always interesting to me how people can form a bond together without ever speaking to each other, over a shared automotive interest. An example of it happened last night.
So, I have a truck again! Well, only technically. WisDOT let me transfer the truck plates onto the Bonneville. All the paperwork is legit and approved by the state.
