i got the renewal for the firebird'* insurance. its 156/yr for agreed value full coverage which is pretty good because that about what i paid per month when i got it in 95. for liability only. i worked at a grocery store and that was my only car seemed worth it at the time. good thing i could fill the tank for less than 15 bucks or i wouldnt have been able to drive it anywhere

Wow, that floods back memories for me. I bought a 86 tuned port 5.0 T-top firebird in 95. My dad had his own repair shop back then and I worked there after school and summers. Anyways this firebird came in and the customer knocked off the air damn and cooked the 305. He didn't want to spend the money to fix it so I bought it from him for a thousand bucks. Well that was all the money I had at the time so it got parked for a year or so until I was able to beg borrow and steal enough money to build a flat top 355. That was a fun summer, 18 years old, hot rod T-top and clueless.

Oh I came close more than once knocking on deaths door in that car. It did however teach me how to handle a high performance car and how to respect traction.

It is kind of a lotto. I had a buddy in high school who'* dad bought him a beautiful 77 camero but it had a 250 six cylinder. His dad said after his 18th birthday he could do what ever he wanted to the car. Well the week of his birthday he installed a smogger 350 from the junk yard. A week after his birthday the car was in the junk yard and he had a cuncussion. Say la vi!

I scored a brand new Wizaired intake for my GTP for 70 bucks. Everything is brand new in box. I hope to get it installed today. I am just starting to get over the worst flu of my life.

Seen this on Face book and made me chuckle,
As a trucker stops at a red light, a blonde catches up. She jumps out of her car, runs up to his truck, and knocks on the door. The trucker lowers the window, and she says "Hi, my name is Heather and you're losing some of your load."
The trucker ignores her and proceeds down the street. When the truck stops for another red light, the girl catches up again. She jumps out of her car, runs up and knocks on the door. Again, the trucker lowers the window. As if they've never spoken, the blonde says brightly, "Hi my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!"
Shaking his head, the trucker ignores her again and continues down the street. At the third red light, the same thing happens again. All out of breath, the blonde gets out of her car, runs up, knocks on the truck door. The trucker lowers the window. Again she says "Hi, my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!"
When the light turns green the trucker revs up and races to the next light. When he stops this time, he hurriedly gets out of the truck, and runs back to the blonde'* car. He knocks on her window, and as she lowers it, he says "Hi, my name is Kevin, it'* Winter in Michigan and I'm driving the SALT TRUCK!"

For you guys on the east cost still fighting the white stuff I just wanted to let you know I spent all afternoon mowing, trimming, edging, and fertilizing my yard in the 80 degree weather. I'm hoping the powers to be will let me keep watering my yard the rest of the year with this drought.
