I played myself again. Last summer we were pulling the suddenly oil pressure-less 350 from my buddy's Camaro. A bolt we had the chain hooked to broke off. Nobody got hurt and we didn't plan on reusing the heads so we re rigged it and pulled it out. 

Guess what idiot just bought those heads...

I have never owned a 6 cylinder engine.

I have never owned a turbocharged engine.

In reply to Appleseed :

My only turbo engine was also a 6. Might not count because it also lacked an ignition system.

I've never owned anything between 2.6 and 7.0 liters.  Had a few 1.8s, a 1600, a gaggle of rotaries (which I count as 2.3 and 2.6l), a couple of fives, probably some stuff I'm missing... and a couple of big-block Ford of the 429 and 460 persuation.

 

Go all-in or go home, I figure.

I'm fully all in on electric vehicles. Especially bikes and motorcycles. There is an extremely good chance my next vehicle will not have any displacement.

I brought an sn95 to a car show at the National Corvette Museum this morning because possible door prizes and I like to be annoying sometimes.

So I counted the cars that fit into my category at this show and there is a tiny chance I might be about to win some plastic just because there's so few cars in that category. So I'm holding out to see how this goes.

Either way this is a judged show apparently so you're about to see the lowest concourse score in anything ever.

Switched on the TV to check the time for the baseball game.  Ended up watching way too much of "Top Secret".  It was stupidly, awesomely funny.

Instead of working on MonZora today:

Sadly, my name was not drawn from the hopper so I didn’t get to audition.

One more car show post. Is it a rule that a red garage queen '57 Chevy has to vomit coolant everywhere at every car show that happens on a slightly warm day? Pretty sure I saw this occur at the last show I went to aswell.

Why do I have Ebay ads suggesting I buy a gauge cluster for a Chevy Celebrity? If I do that I'll have to go find a Celebrity to put it in.

I kinda want to go to a theme park. Diggerland. I never thought I'd ever want to go to New Jersey for anything.

I feel like E36 M3. Why do I feel like E36 M3? Because I just had a big mac. I don't normally eat fast food, and I don't normally eat McDonalds when I do. But I did today. And it was delicious. I will do it again, even though it makes me feel like E36 M3 for the next two hours.

In reply to mtn :

Not a fast food or even chain restaurant guy if at all possible, but Mac D's USED to be my go to.

Then I realized I always felt like E36 M3 afterwards.

Probably haven't eaten at one in ~20 years because of that.

But oh, The Fries! The Fries!

In reply to mtn :

I almost did that yesterday. I get a Big Mac once a year, mostly to remind myself why I don't ever go there the rest of the year. Like going to a night club actually.

Instead I opted for Arbys and for the first time in a very long time, it didn't make me sick as a dog, but the buns were stale and the fries were cold.

I might have stopped at Taco Bell today and had eight tacos.  E36 M3's going to get real later on.
