tax returns are going to cover quite a bit on the MR2. that should be later this month. i'm ordering up camshafts and valvesprings before we dig any further into it, as the lift i'm wanting to go with might create some difficulties. it looks like i'm going to be running it on honda PGM-FI electronics, too. uber fun. UBER fun.

Its 70 degrees here in Texas... Winters are great but summers are a little on the hot side.

I will be switching planes in Chicago at the end of this week on my way to the Bahamas. I hope it doesn't snow and I get stuck at the Chicago airport.

wtf i just looked outside and its covered in snow... :shoots: 3"-6" son of a .....!!!!!!!

dont get me wrong, i like driving in the snow but only when i can enjoy it like in a rural type area.... not sitting in traffic for hours at a time!
i guess my beef is really with the city life and everything that goes with it, public transportation (mainly the busses), potholes, traffic, stupid drivers, etc... :shrug:

Eh... I haven't really made much progress since the teardown. I did get a new hood and I'm in the process of aquiring the rest of the parts now that I've got a little money.

I need a break from being up here though... I haven't been home since Christmas...

yeah yesterday was like 50*+.... haha and like i said before, people out in t-shirts and shorts, including myself just to run out to the garage for something... now its back down to 30*, what a tease...
but yeah me and my buddy went out crusing b/c it was so nice... i saw that alot of people had their "nice" cars out... we saw really nice 71' nova... i mean you can tell it was all business but too bad we went opposite directions or i wouldnt have minded getting my ass handed to me by it... it happened to me with a 69 camaro a couple years back, he just blasted me off the line and i had no chance haha... obviously these are the type of guys that dont respect any type of import so maybe one time i can ruin their day, ahh some day...
