one of my family friends was mowed down by some dumb bitch who had a seizure behind the wheel of a car he was out walking his dog this morning when she went over the curb and hit him on the sidewalk she had a history of seizures - why would she be behind the wheel you killed a really good friend of mine i hope you rot in a jail he was 60 years old, and as jolly as he could be...he was all love. he was also a professor at a local university RIP :'(
They have medication for seizures for a reason, while she probably should have gotten more Neurological tests done, it's not her fault she has a medical condition. (one of my brothers has seizures, he takes medication for them, but still has one every now and then. The first time he had one, it scared the shit out of me. He started shaking and then he turned blue.)

So, probably by the end of the month, me and my dad are trading. I live with my Grandpa now, which happens to be less than a block from where my dad works, and I'm gonna move back into...well my moms house? My parents house? I don't know what to call it. I'm not sure what we're going to do about rent though. Probably going to move pretty quick like. [editline]1st October 2012[/editline] Again, more Neurological tests. Hah, my buddy at work actually had a seizure, on a fork lift last week. He wasn't moving at the time, I think he had it in park actually, but he was in the seat. He's had his fork lift permit pulled until he gets some tests done, and gets cleared by a doctor. My brother's a whole different case though, he's got pretty severe Cerebral palsy.
Was out for a evening cruise and drove towards a big plume of smoke in the sky. Got there in time to see This: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiHounOWT2Y&list=UUFx9F1z9TTkvtsuoVOmsaUw&index=1&feature=plcp[/media]
Holy crap. What happened? Haha that car is is totally going in for a closer look. Nice S-10.
a Racing gas/Bio diesel Plant burning in an industrial park. was a few fire balls, and a shit load of exploding 55 gallon drums. Its still burning now. The fire dept. Just confirmed on the 2-way it was a 53' truck trailer that blew up earlier, They just borrowed an Airport Crash truck to put out the rest of the fire.
hello AA, can someone tell me the name of these wheels? It'd be much appreciated. [t]https://dl.dropbox.com/u/26102300/2012-10-01%2020.51.09.jpg[/t] [t]https://dl.dropbox.com/u/26102300/2012-10-01%2020.51.02.jpg[/t]
[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xi-W_mkVXsg&feature=related[/media] im starting to like the 4th gen mustangs, especially the cobras holy shit that sounds good
I really liked the looks of the 4th gen. Everyone told me to stay away from them, but I figured for a first car they wouldn't be bad. They looked nice in their own way, more unique than the 60's and the recent ones

That's why I wanted to try to get one. Everyone said they'd be shitty and a pain in the ass in the winter (buy sand put in trunk and drive careful and you'd be fine)
see i never have to worry about snow down in florida but Colorado might be a tad sucky
Apparently we might be getting some snow as early as next week. I might look into renting a place to store my car because I don't want it out during winter at all

I'm kind of nervous about getting a low ride in the winter. I have a feeling I'm going to be getting stuck a lot, and since our roads are saltier than mcdonalds fries, It's going to become really rusty really fast.
if you drove really really fast im sure the salt wouldn't have a chance to stay on your delicious paint/underside
[QUOTE=Glitch360;37878491]if you drove really really fast im sure the salt wouldn't have a chance to stay on your delicious paint/underside[/QUOTE] so it's either salty, rusty undercarriage or imminent death hmmmm
if you die at least you wont see your car rust, whereas if you drive normally your car will rust and youll be alive to see it trust me, im a cars expert
Obviously you just need to park your car and pull out your motorized tracked chair.
what I just heard is raise my car and install tank treads in place of wheels gotcha
Texas... What's snow? I fell bad for y'all that have it for months on end...Just get out your POS cars!
[QUOTE=DPKiller;37878616]Texas... What's snow? I fell bad for y'all that have it for months on end...Just get out your POS cars![/QUOTE] Nah, all cars will do. Just some better than others but all are fun
I keep my car out in the winter, no need to store a car in the winter, even if we get snow 5 month a year and salt erry fucking where, just pay 70$ a year for a oil treatment of the undercarriage.
I don't really have a problem with leaving the car out during the winter, my problem stems from the fact that since it's so naturally low I'm going to have trouble getting it out of its parking spot outside my house, knowing how much snow we get each year and the complete lack of plowing my neighborhood gets
Unplowed roads are the best roads for me (or used to be). My old 88' CV could drive safer and faster in 4" of unplowed snow then a 4x4 truck could

Rather that my car is so low and snow gets so high that it would literally be stuck if it snowed. Shoveling does wonders, I know, but still. I didn't buy this car for winter driving anyway, being a FWD is simply a bonus.
