this ramble brought to you by lack of food and presence of sobe tsunami

this day went better than i had any reason to expect.

i guess that's what i get for starting it off right ;)

& now i'm half an hour away from the end of my workday with a quarter-grand paycheck in my bitch bag and hopefully another one waiting at home.

most of this is *probably* going to go to rent since i'm not gonna get my mercanti check till next monday (meaning: after the 1st), but that just means that more of that check will be available.

gotta get a top-end gasket set for the yz125, which i learned this morning (from the members of this excellent site) is of either 1970 or '71 vintage, with electric start even. nifty.

heh- i always swore i'd never own a "classic" or "vintage" automobile- guess i have to eat those words, as the engine i'm about to stick in my ysr is at least 7 years older than i am. maybe i'm the only one who sees the irony in that- oh well.

also hope to be able to afford new suspension arms, wheel bearings, brake rotors & pads for the 16v gti soon, as i'd really like to finish upgrading that thing, sell it off and use the $3k or so i have tied up in it for other stuff (namely, a supercharged engine for the mr2, so i can hopefully sell that thing off at a profit as well).

all a matter of keeping priorities straight... & eyes on the prize.

HOLY SHIT.

what's goin on here?
i see that you have a VW GTI, AND an MR2?!?!?!?!!!!!!
right now i am soooo jealous... i am volkswagens #1 fan and especially golfs (i own one) but REALLY REALLY especially gti's/vr6's biggest luver as well..
and my dad owns an MR2 which we named Casper (mostly all white) and it is our BABY and i love that thing almost more than messaging random strangers on livejournal. hehe ciao!

yup- & you must have missed the part about the ysr i'm putting together *grin*

*sigh* yeah, i miss my GTI-VR6.

i've had two of them, but wrecked the first one and managed to get the second repossessed... ah, the joys of being young and stupid.

having bought a 16v since then, though, i don't miss how nose-heavy the VR6's are; my newer GTI turns a lot quicker.

have you done anything interesting to your golf yet? got pics? =)

and my dad owns an MR2 which we named Casper (mostly all white) and it is our BABY and i love that thing almost more than messaging random strangers on livejournal. hehe ciao!

the '85 i just bought is my first MR2, but between the styling and the potential of the cars, i don't think it'll be the last one. my roomie and i were discussing the possibility of swapping a V6 into a '91-95 MR2 earlier today...
