Don't fret, I haven't forgotten y'all. Please forward blame to someone else since i'm back

HDUCE dba New 2 You Auto Sales has been open for about a year and a half now. Probably sold 30ish cars. Not a huge money maker but I really don't have the time/$ to devote to it right now so I found a couple guys to rent the lot in the meantime.

Also, I'm working for Progressive now as an adjuster. How all(3 or so) y'all doin'?

And boy #4 is on the way due sometime in Feb

Dale is back Popping out kids and peddling cars like a bawss.

What's it like being a claims adjuster? I used to think it might be a pretty cool gig.

The 98 Sienna will be the nicest van we have until the kids are grown enough not to run into it with their scooters/bikes/etc.

Is Josh2.0 Love or Joy? Occasionally I'll see Joy post up on facebook.

Insurance adjuster is kinda a neat job but it's tough. Just like everything else in the auto industry people think you are out to get them. Nobody likes when you write for aftermarket/used parts on their 2016 vehicle. You are assigned more than you can handle but the pay/benefits make it worthwhile. You also get to drive around and see and hear lots of different things so there's never a dull moment.

That's why I like keeping around my old pilot. I don't feel (too) bad when balls bounce off of it or someone spills something in it.

I need to suck it up and trailer it up here but a few *teensey* things are hurting that...

1. I keep driving fun cars back and not driving trailer-hauling cars
2. It would never survive the trip if I drove it back haha
3. It likes it better in SC where there are no emissions or inspections
4. It's kind of a fun game to play... leave it alone for 4-6months then play Will It Start!

I have put far less than 750miles on it in the last 5 years




















(But I refuse to sell it)

Understandable reasons though...especially the lack of emissions testing

Josh Joy I used to chat with a lot, he was gonna join the military or something. I heard something a few years ago about some place he was staying at catching fire? He seems to be ok now, doesn't post on fb much.

I was friends with Josh Love on FB but he unfriended me after about a year, looks like he's got a nice family though

Nice! I wish I had the space and time to work on something like that.

Someone asked me at a meet the other week what I plan on doing with my car, and for the first time I was just like, probably just the exhaust for now. I've kinda lost the mood for modifying cars. Maybe it's the warranty scare or maybe it's just the wanting to focus my time on other things.


Then again I do miss crazy loud exhausts.... Mostly because the guy in the cubicle space next to me drives a 2007 STi and it sounds so good when he leaves work for the day.

That's normal, I think. It's an expensive hobby with no real end-game unless you're driving competitively every few weeks. Eventually it's kind of like...what's the point?

Having a project car like Crusty is one thing, because that you can just tool around with in your spare time when you're in the mood, but to modify a daily driver beyond maybe intake/exhaust is meh..

It's been at least a few years now but I believe his brother died(possibly motorcycle accident?). I don't really talk to him much and didn't want to ask at that time.

Get you another probe(GT though) with a test pipe and half worn flowmaster. That will cure you're desire for loud exhaust.

No thanks. I don't think I could get another PGT. Those interiors fall apart way too easily. I still have my 04 wrx for now and it's plenty loud, just doesn't move very fast.

Yeah for a DD I understand that. I guess I just need the space for a project car, or second car... but I think by the time I get there it might need to be a truck for hauling stuff. I like modifying stuff but I do loathe most of the "kids" I meet now at car club/meets. Like seriously there was a group of us standing around and someone asks "where is the turbo at on these things" as they just bought a used 2015 STi. 3 of them look in the location where they are on the 2002-2007 models, and these are kids that have 2015+ models. I just shook my head. They are equal length fools!

Yes for sure! I wish I had learned that lesson much earlier! Daily drivers are now limited to intake an exhaust IF that.

Spend the money on a project car you can tinker with and don’t care if it sits. It’s there when you want it but not when you do not have time.

I wonder if PT will eventually shut down too. Then we'll all lose touch for real.

Yeah I can't see how this place still has the funds to operate. cars been non existent for 20 years, all the vendors are gone, not as many people visit this board.

I use google hangouts exclusively now, for work, and home.
