Default NEBF Day 1 summary

So day one went rather well..
We drank a bunch of beer. then more beer.
I put my car up on jackstands to try to access the rear exhaust manifold... yeah... not happening this weekend, im going to wait until i can get the car on a lift and drop the whole engine cradle a couple inches to have a LITTLE space to work in... In the process of lying down underneath the car poking at things i broke a sparkplug wire... (needed changing anyways) And one of my rear struts decided to leak oil all over bills garage floor

JimmyFloyd has half an interior... and was screwing with his radio... not sure what he was doing with his car...

Gumball did some FINE supervision.

BillBoost Took pictures. (will be posted later)

Randman.... who really knows...?

Bills sister and friend graced us with their presence for the evening and made us drinks and breakfast... too bad she drove an oldsmoblie...

Thats about it... a bunch of nothing happened yesterday.. nothing and beer. same plan for today..

Who is ready for some pics? We are modding and waiting for all the people to show up. I didn't think my house was that far from anywhere..

Let'* start off with some loving. Aaron and Geoff were kissing. (REALLY, when Nate refused to come cuddle with them they went at it.)

We ran ouf of jackstands and had to improvise

Little sis and Jessica show up to play bartender. I think they were just looking for entertainment.

An oppressed SE owner wears a shirt that says it all.

Geoff and Randy were supposedly working on the car. You be the judge on this one

Ok.. well morning arrived and I come cruisin out of my bedroom to find, Geoff'* sleeping arrangement.

Aaron aims to swap out the front exhaust manifold

Jim hops on the pc and says "which screen do I use, and how the heck does this trackball work?"


There'* other highlights and quotes. I'm sure you have all seen them. Odd enough I haven't posted in about 6 days and I'm still around 23 posts per day.

OH.. Geoffs car might have a new rattle. There'* a pic somewhere. 93 Bonne hoods work pretty well as beer bottle openers.

Actually, my "imaginary" hangover from NEBF was pretty good this morning!
