well today i replaced the headgaskets lim and uim on a 99 grand am with a 3.4, took lauren to the doctor then came home and lauren harley and i worked on my motorized bike i built when i was 13. needs some new innertubes for the motor mounts because the old ones have worn down to the point they are paper thin, and then i need to replace the studs for the exhaust. rode it around for a few miles anyway though. for the first 3 years i had it, i rode the thing almost every single day rain snow or sunshine. on 1 3/8" road tires. i was a pretty determined kid. lol. i figure that bike probably has close to 7-8K miles on it at this point. i think i did a pretty damn good job taking care of it as a 13 y/o for it to have lasted so long. just a little chinese engine with needle bearings. its the simplest engine i have ever worked on. no battery no pull start, just let out the clutch and go.


heres a pic of it right after i first built it and a gif of me doing dounts in the snow with it. i also included a pic of it attached to a ghetto wooden trailer i built for it also at age 13. i still have it actually. its damn sturdy apart from the gooseneck thing. the floor is made from 1 1/2" inch deck treads. haha.

Finally, got my truck out of the garage, first time in 5 years. 15 minutes later, I put it back in the garage so I can finish up some odds and ends on it.

I ran the mower around my GXP and decided it needed a good polishing. I'll put up a thread with pics when I do. 54k miles so far, only 300 miles put on it last year. I may or may not plate it this year....to many toys.

Nothing, just drove around with the AC today and racked up a bunch of miles. Not bad for a 22 year old car. Snapped a few pictures with my new smartphone.

The Galaxy S4 is pretty sweet. Samsung finally put a good radio in one of their phones. I pick up 4G in several places I barely had 3G before
