My wife had some complications in her pregnancy and we lost our little girl.

At this point I'm drained and at a loss of words.

Just bought RA flaps and the subimods bracket, hella horns, subimods wiring kit for my car for now. Maybe buy my wife some sti pinks for her forester this week and some whiteline sways for my car.

Was supposed to have my car sold this weekend, but people keep saying its too new, too clean, just a bit higher than they thought blah blah etc.

But I think today I'm going to look at a legacy 2.5gt sedan as a project investment.

I've been telling that to myself for way to long. Haha. If mine does sell, a friend in NC is selling a 95 rhd sti plus extras for a good price, there's a rhd sti in San Antonio for sale(undergoing rebuild), the best converted rs ever in Canada( mannslayer's sti...google it please). That's the list so far, all gc8s I think.

There's a cheap 06 sti in San Antonio... but I haven't drove stick in so long( even then it was just a few times). So I was considering that cheap 2.5 legacy gt to learn on for now, then resell that for profit.

And I think the 08 sti will need a few things here and there. But its got an mess load of horsepower and looks sharp. I've talked them down but idk how much lower than $460 a month there willing to go. Its in my price range but I'm waiting to see if mine sells first, and I could take out a loan.

My brain has been done for since earlier this week. For good reasons. So my thinking process has been haywire. Idk what to do.

My wife bought me a mountain bike and camelback today. Its not the most expensive or best one out there, but at least its a start. That way I can start riding again.
Id like to go ride Sal Del Rey by my house, but I don't know if bikes are allowed.

Where do you guys ride?

I haven't road bike hardcore in about 6 years. I probably won't be doing anything crazy that's if I can keep up haha. Its a cheaper 18speed from academy I think. ( my wife bought so I'm not gonna complain).

I'll try to swing out on Thursday so we can talk about who what where when and all that.

Selvaje, don't you ride too? What if we all just go do a car cruise out there, do some biking, then go get some grub or something afterwords?

Its getting hot outside, thinking of fun stuff to do with fam or if any of you guys/girls want to hang out. Too damn dry for bonfire. Mt biking is definately do-able. I'd like to do some camping, paddling, horse shoes, race go carts and any crazy outdoor stuff.

Are we still on for Thursday night?

Yes sir!! I'm waiting for the salesman to email me back with info. Id like to know if it comes with a warranty and what mods have been done, in case the **** breaks, or to have it retuned at Cobb in SA.

Tell him to hook me up man.

Emailed Engine Logics from Houston. Apparently the car had been tuned there, according to the stickers on the window.I know its a far fetched idea, but maybe they can shed light on what it has.( that 08 sti at hacienda)

In amazement, Engine Logics emailed me what the car had previously put out. I provided them with a vin and vehicle description. It had some time back put out well over 300 hp he said. But last time dynoed he took some of the parts off or whatever, or tuned it more conservative, to 250 hp and 265tq

Hellas came in tonight at about 630pm. No instructions, but I seen some pics online of how I can do it. Also will be installing the mudflaps on.

And Aluma, tell Dan to find that grille. I need it and will pay cash!

I popped the hood open, and saw pretty much ALL aftermarket parts. One of the pipes is rubbing against the oilfill cap and is pretty scratched. I also noticed some oil/fluids leaking on it. I snapped a photo of the engine bay if you want me to send it to you.

Why is it neccessary for people to merge into traffic, in a bottleneck area, to be talking on cellphones, not use signals, and cut every single person that was going 35mph off?

Say hello to my little friend, he's got a twin. They call them Hellas.
Haha, I had one chick on a cell phone come up an on ramp and merge violently into traffic on her cell phone. The same spot I was merging into. So I tapped the horn. Her cellphone flew out of her hand and she grabbed the steering wheel all scared. Then a pt cruiser at the last second at the Pharr interchange whipped in front of me. I slowed down and hit the horn a few times (since his window was down) and he swerved all crazy and almost into the wall. Douchebag.
