after the engine locked up in late august last summer i was just too bumbed

then i stood up and started working, at home trailered the engine/trans to school, disassembled the block, ordered the stroker rebuild, after 6mo of looking found a manual at the junk yard for 85 working, ect... ect...


insured and regstering on friday.


and that burn out on the bridge when i was testing the maf swap, was just too head turning.

and i was laughfing and crying when i went through a road work zone when every worker except 2 out of the 13 were telling me to light them up and go faster and make some noise

well my home page wont be up dated untill i go to trade school and have the high speed there to load up the pictures

so tell me what you want

Good for you man!
Nice feeling, isn't it?
And it's amazing how fast you start to forget about the frustration and hassles.

i said it once and i'll say it agin,"i ran out of money so i at least got the lower end done"

and thursday i'm going to summer duck drag

and in the videos that is with the cats now with the shorties h pipe and flow master 40s is has a rustic loud echo.

oh and it is so funny the people i surprised for example, i went to Richmond, cop every 3 blocks, but a husband and a wife were watching me turn into a gas station while they were waiting to pull out and he was smileing then i did a 3k rev and his smile went away like he was scared like a gohst and his wife started to laughf at her husbands shock

and i now have 532miles today 3rd day of driveing,

I figured as much, no sense in using stock HO stuff unless you plan on keeping it.

Fri Jul 13 2007 registered, i hate it when there is a connection with superstitions. \:\(

today on thursday instead of going to Summerduck, on my way to get my sister from richmond. i sold a few old cats for gas money and took the closest I95 ramp.

a new on ramp, two 50" hills on the sides of the ramp had cut into, and it still had guard rails at the intersection.


you might be thinking correct of what happened. a;lskdfja;sldkfja;sldkfjas;ldkfjas;ldkfjas;dlfkjasl;dfkjasdlfkjasd;lfkjsad;lfkjsad;lfkjasd;lf.

no one else at the intersection. the rails were a car-length apart, i had the green light and turned left onto the on ramp when all of a sudden a Black 4 door explorer poped into my right side mirror i didn't know what to do so already most the way through the intersection turning a regular curve, then i turned harder to avoid the explorer coming up on my right side then i started to slide on some dirt on the asphalt, i locked up the brakes.

the explorer avoided hitting me by turning right and ABS, (annything but stoped) sinse his tires didn't lock up he made a loop around the intersection then around me onto I95 N. all while i'm...

sliding right twoards the guard rail, at least my car slowed down to about 10-15mph, the right front hit pushed the fender in-shattered the fiber glass nose clip-shifted the front end 1/8"-and bounced off of the guard rail-spining the car-to hit the right rear fender-shattering the brake lense/ fiberglass housing. and i came to a stop praying "why"

called the cops, took half an hour because that happened during when all of stafford county's best were having their once a year meeting.

he couldn't do anny thing because my brother and i didn't see anny plates on the explorer, but what the cop could do was;
give me a ticket (for going off road), insurance would go up because of ticket and accident, Geico would total car so

i would have to, pay for the ticket, buying the car back, paying out of pocket for repairs, and the insurance raise

but the cop was from Ohio a hot rod raised child, and we talked about my car, so he decided to not register the accident

i went to my neighbors house, he said hell pull the 3' pipe like long dent out of the rear .25 pannel for free and body fill and prime for free along with the miss maching body pieces hell sand and prime. And the other parts that can be bolted on i've already gotten off but the RF fender is still attached by a few bolts.

a few sad facts;
my first wreck,
the explorer without tags ran the red light,
the guard rails dont have to be there (if they werent i could of spun the car around in the dirt after sliding the car accros the road),
my car should of been totaled,
and i should of gotten a ticket for running off the road (at least i removed last years county sticker 100$ fine for it blocking my view)

but good and funny things;
i found out the cops have a meeting on this date noon of evey year,
the cop that liked my car wanted to know if it was loud he said he wouldn't give me a ticket for making noise so i took off real quick making noise he turned on his lights for a few seconds then flew by me on 95 doing 90mph,

the cost isn't going to be much about 150$ of parts from my junk yard, just painting so it'll have primer patches till i get the money to make it a metalic burgendy

ok now just 150 for the accident repairs.

so it costed me less, than gas for 4 days of driving around.

and i'm going to my uncles next week so they'll be a video of me doing a burn out in the cars skeliton look or the mixed body pannles.

and i cant rev higher than 3k as suggested by ford untill i get new valuve springs, well it still makes alot of power before that \:\) just a burn out video dosn't sound as cool without the engine screaming.

but isn't it cool to know i can power brake it around 1200 turning the rear tires.

and the drag strip that i missed last thursday i hope to make it this thursday, it is a 1/8mi and when i do give you the times i'll also give the conditions
