The Bonneville Club is actually my most time consuming hobby while at college. I spend about an hour here every day. I also collect toy john deere tractors, restore vintage tractors (2 so far), and of course love driving tractors--farming is my hobby and my job

Working on my car.
Drag racing my car.

Working on my dads car.
Drag racing my dads car.

Working on my moms car....well, you get the picture.

- Spending more money then I have on keeping my car running properly.
- Visiting car forums on the internet. (mostly related to GM FWD cars and especially 60 degree V6'* (2.8/3.1/3.4 and the new 3.5 & 3.9)) But there is here, and club GP in both of which I am kinda addicted to, although clubgp and its BS gets really old really fast.
- I used to be really big into computers until I got my car, now I just don't have time. I have about 6 or so computers sitting in my room wating to be fixed. I am even using one of my "spare" computers for regular use right now and have been for about 6 months now while I am fixing mine (in which I haven't even started yet). Just don't have time.

Thats about it.

3 passions:

1. My kids.
2. My work (feeds my kids).
3. My car (gets me to work and keeps my kids safe....remember what happened to my Roadmaster?).

Am I boring?

Well if we're gonna drag pix into this...



The white rope light along the baseboard is HOT. Looks like fire when i have every other light off. The way it glows off the wood of my stand and the speakers is like sunset. Be nice if i had a tripod at school to get some good pix of it....

It sounds kinda good too!

(see the m62?)

Hobbies eh?

Well, freelance architectural work, traveling with the missus, photography, detailing the cars (excellent way to decompress I find), generally socializing, it cant be beat.

I want to re-takeup playing the piano....such a great instrument, its one thing to appreciate music, its another to contribute to it.

That covers it I think!
