    Funny you mention it, they bought a bunch of cheap furniture for this space that I am working on and paid extra to have it assembled. The assembly guys fucked a bunch of shit up.

    They’ve pretty much dried up here. FedEx is pure garbage.

    The third time the one in my CJ5 had the head off (a rod on the pavement this time - the head came off to make it lighter), we took the block out in the boat and used it for a raft up anchor.

    Best use of an Iron Duke motor in the history of the GM. The 5.0HO Pontiac motor that replaced it was a much better engine. That Iron Duke was almost as bad as my Vega engine.

    Hell, even the Vega never dropped a valve or slung a rod out. It just burned more oil than a DT400.

    My wife loves Christmas, and it seems my daughter is following in her mothers footsteps. I enjoy seeing the two of them happy. They can crank all the Christmas music they want. :thumb

    Am I the only one who wonders that....while I know its all acting, and in a movie situation, that has got to play on a young child's developing brain somehow. I mean, its hollywood, so the kids probably coked up or something....but still.

    Josep Garcia has moved in front of Taylor Robert for 2nd overall now. Taylor is still first in E2, Daniel Sanders is running away with the overall. KR is second in E2, Sipes is 2nd in E1 and Steward Baylor is 3rd in E3 but has only had today count towards the USA time. US is 1:30 up on Aus right now.

    Very nice work by the USA Team.
    Looking hella strong. Gonna be a fight to the finish with AUS...

    Sanders is hauling the friggen mail.
    Nice to see Shelby Turner in 7th OA still for EW.
    And cool to see such a small brand like TM Racing in 3rd for the MA behind the two KTM teams...
    Super cool to see Tyler Medeglia holding the OA in C1 for Canoodia....

    Who won the heats? Who won the LCQ? Who got gate choice? What does the holeshot winner get...a bag of calamari-flavored sparking water?
