It's a modified vehicle. He doesn't want to fiddle with that mess as it's a liability on him if something happens, even though he knows all of the dumb **** I get into with cars. lol So with how much work has been done to this one, he's gonna hate it.

Ahhh ok, figured it was like some kind of tuning/race shop you were using. Here, get a highly modified VR-4 and bring it to him and when it breaks all the time hold him liable. Then he'll love the Supra and Celica! laugh.gif

Hell the VR-4 could be stock and break all the time anyway, maybe that'd be better to prove the point. laugh.gif

I remember watching my dad help change the spark plugs on my uncle's VR-4 back in the days. not good times. not good times at all...


Yep, my dad tried helping out my cousin with his... 3 days later and couldn't fix it so they gave up.
Nice updates on the car so far, I especially like how you got free storage ha ha.

About the only update I have so far is that the car has been parked for the last month or so. Oil leak has gotten ridiculous, the car doesn't boost, and it stalls coming to a stop. My mechanic doesn't have time for the car since his two employees are out for vacation for the last month or so and it's just him running solo until they get back. So Tuesday, I'll be towing it clear across town to a friend's shop to have the overhaul done. In the mean time, the Supra has been serving daily duties and even that is starting to act up. -_- Can't catch a break.

Progress updates on the car will probably come to a halt for a while as I have received a job offer up in Dallas, so things will be changing as I get settled up there and readjust. I honestly don't want to make the move, but it's a good career opportunity and it'll pull me out of my comfort that I've settled into here at home.

Ladies, calm down. There's plenty of me to go around.

On that note, I did get an offer in Raleigh for more money, but they turned me down because it had been about 4 years since I was in the telecommunications field. :\ Yesterday, I had a call for a gig in Alabama, but I told them I was still in school and about 2 classes away from being done. Lady said, "No worries. I'll connect with you on LinkedIn and when you're done with school, get back in touch and we'll see what we can do for you since we've hired on a lot of people from Houston due to Oil&Gas being slow lately."

I need to follow up with my current manager to call up to one of our Dallas stores to see if they have an open part-time position for me out there so I can make extra cash before I give this other company my final decision.

Alabama is not so bad, and works out well if you're a car person. No real notable winter to speak of, salt is never used anyway we use sand, and there's no inspection or emissions testing of any sort. Then the states around you have emissions so you can pick up a car that won't pass for cheap there and bring it back here where it really doesn't matter anyway. laugh.gif

Hmmm.........

On another note, forgot to mention that my GT-Fo' riser blocks came in a while ago. Will probably be a while til they go on the car.

I broke a thing...



Car got sent off to my friend's shop so it can get a major tune-up and reseal of the motor. Hopefully it goes smoothly. lol If all goes well, should be getting it back by week's end. After that, looking over the tune to get familiar with it before I fiddle with other shizzle down the road.
