Nice!!! Glad to hear it fixed it, those holes were TRASHED!!!!! If they weren't as bad I'd have maybe said, sure, let's just run the washers but man... I figured that thicker stuff should hold a heck of a lot better.

Damn my friends for being in town tonight!!! I really want to skip out on them but I'd never hear the end of it. It's funny, I can blow off a group of guys and they DGAF. But if you blow of a group of chicks they just gripe and complain and whine and... I know it'll be impossible to keep it to just like a drink or two also with these three... Hopefully they've got plans to like go clubbing or something so if I show up casual I can be like oh crap, my bad... Well, lets just grab a couple drinks real quick and then I'll leave you 3 to go whore it up... (so I can head back home and work in the garage some more... LOL)


I need to probably put a wheelie bar on my expo!

Facebook stuff...




Same blonde here, and the other chick "loud" that's in this picture also...




Oh, even better yet, here's all 3 of them actually...




Actually the one on the right in the photo above... The two of us are heading to Seattle for 4 days on memorial day weekend next month to go party it up. We went to dallas/fortworth last year cause we hadn't been drunk there before, this year is Seattle and Victoria Island. Next year we're thinking maybe east coast somewhere.

Not saying it can't happen but the odds are somewhere around getting hit by lightning while winning the lottery.
I found this here


And, from an NHRA Magazine article...

"Bergenholtz earned his nickname when he and his brother, Ron, reinvented the wheelie bar and then broke the 10-second benchmark in the quarter-mile. Wheelie bars are like car training wheels. They trail behind a dragster, preventing it from tipping over backwards on launch. The Bergenholtz brothers put wheelie bars on their '89 Honda CRX - a front-wheel-drive car, which, by definition, cannot wheelie. On a front-wheel-drive car, the (now slightly misnomered) wheelie bars shift the center of gravity forward. They prevent the rear shocks from compressing at launch. This is, in fact, genius in its simplicity: Gain traction by planting the front end more firmly on the tarmac."

The two in the back on that last picture are sisters... Talk about drama!!! I've seen broken glasses over heads between those two over the years! LOL I've also woke up at like 9am and been drunker then **** at a brunch doing shots of jager by 10am down by the beach with them! Drinking is a profession with those two!

I'm seriously going to try my hardest to keep it at like an hour tops down there with them! I really want to keep this expo progress rolling!

So, in essence all you did was double the length of the car and make the rear tires basically useless. I want to see that driving down the road.

I don't care that they are sisters. I just care that one of them is in my bed, naked at the end of the night.

Andy is getting hard up. Right now I would not be surprised if I heard something like "I don't care if she has an adam's apple, she has tits!!"

Must suck to have actual hours at work. I generally just have places I need to be at (estimates) but when I don't its kind of whatever. I don't abuse it but If I roll in at 8 or 9 or 10 I'm normally not questioned. Also if I have morning and afternoon estimates on my side of town I just work at home.

It's give and take though. Alot of days in the summer I will have a 7am estimate that is 45 minutes from my house and a 5 or 6 pm that is just as far whic effectively turns into a 13 hour day, but in the winter ill roll in at 9 and leave at 3 if I am caught up on my work.

Factor in the company vehicle and even though I don't make **** it's not a bad gig.
