so i dont have a camera...

so here is what i have been up to, through the eyes of matt9000 (who has a digital camera).

When im not at work (im at work most of the time) or hanging out with Mimi, i'm usually around matt, so here are photos from his blog which happen to have me in them.


Me and Ryan who just got back from Iraq for his 3rd time.


Here is me "helicopter-ing" Alex's minivan.


Here is me dressing in June's weird clothes.


Here is me watching Inglorious Basterds, what is Henry doing?


here is me eating at Mitsuwa with Alex, Matt, and Amber. Matt and Alex not pictured.


Same day as above.


News about the car:

Stuff has been ordered, and in transit.

FS: Work Varianza D3S (19x9+9, A disc; 19x10+13, O disc)

My good friend Ron is trying to sell his wheels.

In his own words:

As it states i have an almost pristine condition of Work Varianza D3S

19x9+9 A Disc
19x10+13 O Disc

front rims do not clear z32 brakes without a 5mm spacer.

One rear rim(rear) has two small ass...and i mean small scratches on the edge of the lip.

$2500 picked up in original boxes without tires(If money is sent to me first, im willing to drive up to 100 miles round trip to drop them off.)

If they are local ill add the front 215/35/19 tires pretty much brand new for $100 more.

I accept paypal but be ready to pay the fees.

And Im willing to ship, but be prepared to pay about 100 for shipping




From what i understand he will accept other wheels and/or parts for STi as trade.

Monoblock wheels in the neighborhood of 18x9.5 +35 preferred, (ie. TE37, CE28, NT03 +M, RS, RGII, maybe RPF1 etc.).

i can give you his contact information if interested.

Hayato Muramatsu's '79 Datsun 620.

I remember talking about Datsun trucks at Matt's a few days ago.

well this is a beautiful example.

Featured in "Mini Truckin'" is Hayato Muramatsu's shaved and body dropped 1979 Datsun 620. i wonder if this same body style was available in 1975, if so this would be a hell of a vehicle to own.

just a filler episode.

So matt9000 and I went and did some shit the other day.

naturally ill only post the car related shit here. i guess matt9000 had a camera...

we went to a bbq with henry.




then we stopped by Corey's house on the way home.



here is me looking at his not very stock motor.

i didnt even know it was running yet but apparently it is, and for sale.

then i fucked around with my exhaust to keep it from rubbing and re-did the top mounts on my coilovers but thats boring stuff.

Old news, but great news.



i thought i would bring this back.

i love this video!

Dear Mr. Alex Truong.

this is what i wa stalking about earlier:




with the F50 projectors.

(disclaimer: i have no affiliation with this vehicle)

also,

how the fuck do Z33 owners drive around so low??

i think my S30 is pretty low, at least at the frame rails and crossmember (which are around one inch above flat ground and take quite a bit of a beating), but these guys are like scraping rocker panel! and these are brand new cars, what about speed bumps and driveways? i would hate to dent up my rocker panels on a car like that!

i wonder if there are any tunnels on the way to irvine?





this is just filler, i know...

but i haven't done anything cool to my car recently.

man i need aero already.

credit card debt.

im at $650 right now.

which is nothing, i know.

i just ordered 3 more haha.

trying to hit $10,000 by the end of summer.

so i made a decision!

i chose a car to beat on, i miss sliding.

1980 2 door (i know, i want a 4 door, but im set on this one) TE corolla complete with quarter panel damage. this will have a budget of $2000.

found it and i will be building it up right after JCCS.

right now i am in the pre-JCCS frenzy.

L28ET is coming within 2 weeks (thanks, my beautiful girlfriend Mimi!), then it will sit in Matt9000s garage where i will get rid of all the unnecessary vacuum lines, EGR and shave the intake mani and mock up intercooler and shit.

here is my wish list for mimi (or rather shit i need by october). hey, if any of you guys wanna buy me shit thats cool too, haha.

NRCAs.
T3 LCAs.
MSA air dam, flares, and spoiler.
tie rod ends.
tension rods.
q45 revolver projectors.
71C transmission.
10 gallon fuel cell.
HIDs
fuel pump

and a bunch of random shit.

anyhow, this blog will not contain any photographs, so most of you readers will not
enjoy it.

I am really excited about the TE, but i will refrain from doing/getting shit for it until after JCCS, until which the S30 is the main priority.

and...

ill stop there until i get some photos of shit or something.
