Sooooooooooooooo................. I've got this Nissan 240SX laying around...







And.......................... I've got an older Buick straight 8 over there in the corner collecting dust. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..............













Eh screw that, too much work... Maybe I'll try to just get Tweety Bird to break 100mph instead!





Don't mind me, just making some tuning changes with my computer...








Then again, maybe I should go raid the gardener's Toyota and jack a Diesel and build something a bit more original...








Screw that... Too much work. I'm just gonna go hang out in my van and do some drugs!!!





Oh look!!! A wagon!!!!





Crap, that can't be real, must be the drugs... I'm gonna get some rest in my bus...





whoops, wrong bus...







In short, it's not just offroad that's building goofy crap!!!! And now... I really need to plan another Bonneville trip! Maybe next year!


We know how to do it right!!!








Oh pretty!!!








It's not a car...





It's a bar!!!





Vegas needs a ***** mascot!





Although, next time we go, we'll probably be going in a '32 Ford that the dude raiding the bar a few pictures up is building from the ground up.

BTW, I've got a friend in so cal that's selling a Warn XD9000i for $700 with a 75' synthetic rope setup on it if anyone is in the market. Pretty good price for that combo.

The yellow Honda if I remember right was a pretty heavily built 3 cylinder or whatever the heck came in those older CVCC Honda's. I remember walking up to check it out and the dude literally had his laptop hooked up to it making some tuning changes! LOL He said his whole goal in life was to break 100mph. Funny cause you can see previous attempts on the fender.


That's a really fun photo album to glance thru on occasion. Some crazy rides! Honestly the most eclectic single car scene event I've ever been to! The racing wasn't that impressive but it was neat watching them leave the starting line. Walking the pits though was amazing if you're a gear head!

Memories of a really funny top gear episode!

That's a nice Vette you got there, wanna race my Geo?





Rollin in my hooptie!





My hooptie's gotta bar too!





And I don't suggest hangout around the rear too long...





One of the first things we saw when we hit the flats, was so badass!!!!









Show and tell over... Sorry... Fun stuff though!

lol, strangely enough Andrew WK has been coming up on random on my ipod lately, which begs 2 questions.

Firstly, why am I listening to Andrew WK.

Second, why do I even HAVE any Andrew WK?

But I dunno, i think they look pretty decent with a mild lift and some tires. The available Hemi is great option too. I dunno about others, but the last Hemi I had was a great engine, had over 145k on it and never any real issues.
