Kinda neither haha.

I'm not an optimologist but I did wear glasses for 15 years. I went every year and had them adjusted and suddenly one year I went and I tested out with better than 20/20 vision.

And I haven't worn them in 15 years with no side-effects or vision problems.

(Results are not typical and no guarantee is provided)


Happy 6000th post in the thread SumR...

6000th reply (to my own meaningless thread :p )

Bought a 90 Z32 this morning. Will have it towed to the house this week(doesn't run - should probably get used to this concept).

Still room in the driveway for something blue with a turbo

N/A, Of course, Yes(slicktops are kinda rare). Not caring too much for speed in my old age. No wood screws present sir, that was old Dale. New Dale uses self tapping screws, heavy duty zip ties, and touch up paint

I honestly would have no clue where to upload/host pics anymore. Gonna try to get it running this weekend(change all fluids, fog cylinders, change fuel pump and gas, pray).

Nice!

I use Flickr .com to host pics. Decent apps. Decent website. Never had issues.

I remember having similar issues with my 97 probe. Dorothy and Mark did the transmission swap and the first transmission they put in, the syncros locked up.. first it would only go from 1st to 3rd to 5th. Then a day or so later it would only stay in 1st. I had to get them to pop in another transmission and it worked for the rest of the time I owned it. Fun times. (not really)

Z is running! and about to go on Craigslist

Quickly realizing with a 6 week old and 3 other little chirren that I don't have as much time as I need to work on it. Tires are dry rotted, misc weatherstrip/moldings dry rotted, Diff needs new front bushings(horrible thump thump while driving/shifting....it's just not up to "New Dale" standards. Need one that's a little further along and nicer all around.

Found a 96PGT on Cragslist in Cayce. Looks pretty nice. For $850 it's worth it just in parts. Needing a black 94+ dash.

I got a new front lip for my car yesterday. Originally wasn't going to do any body mods but I couldn't pass this up.

https://photos.app.goo.gl/X8txY65g8Xl4BO8f2

Hopefully that link works. It was a really good deal for a poly lip. It was designed by JNA Performace, who used to reside in Connecticut but moved down to Myrtle Beach last year. They held a meet at my friends house down here and they offered free installation, you can't beat that! I might get the other 2 pieces of the kit as I think they look amazing together and I can get them to install it at the next meet.

Me and my friend are the first in the US with this specific lip.

Anyways, hopefully exhaust will be next when I figure out what I want.

I concur that said lip is visually pleasing.

I was trying to find a picture of the full kit on my friend Dan's car so you could see what it looks like with the sides and rear but... this is the closest one she took. I think it looks fantastic with the full thing.

We were about to buy a newer van but decided not to. The bank already ran my credit. Would be a shame not to take out a vehicle loan since they already ran it. If you're actually thinking of getting rid of your lawn ornament Daylin shoot me a text. 803-939-6400.

Yeah I probably will get with you at some point. I need to get it operational again since it's been sitting for a few months (oil change and battery) but I would love to get rid of it and buy a new mountain bike or something useful. As much as I love it (advans ftw) I want to see someone use it properly and take care of it.

I have a mod list too I could send via email if you wish to see.
