Default Another mini meet with 1337ssei

I hung out for a few days with 1337ssei. I got home last night from this mini meet in which I kind of worked on my Bonneville, took ~20 pictures, and worked a little bit with the Aerostar. I also went to a junkyard to pick up a couple things, and I'll post more about that later on when I take pictures of further progress on my 94. Link coming shortly. Have fun looking at pictures!

First of all, I see it'* getting at least a bit popular to post pictures of dogs. Here'* my sister'* dog wearing her new sweater.

1337ssei'* dad came by in his Grand Am, and there was snow. We threw deicing fluids at my SLE and scraped off ice before I left to go to the junkyard and then to 1337ssei'* house.

The Grand Am was pretty nicely deiced.

On the way there, I saw someone pretty generously took out a guard rail.

My single junkyard pic is of a green 94 SSEi pretty much identically optioned as mine is, except that it'* wrecked. Here'* how they let the engine bay sit!

That'* fairly similar to my car. It was all dry just a day before this picture was taken, and now it'* completely snowed in.

I put a trickle charger on my battery and left. The car couldn't start, and I'm going to replace my starter soon. However, charging the battery for a day helped the car start late last night.

An Oldsmobile Achieva, driven by 1337ssei'* cousin, had a flat tire. Have a look:

We played Monopoly, and 1337ssei wiped the floor with us. Here'* a picture of him with every single property and all the money. Everything. I think there was one railroad not yet purchased, but that'* just too unnecessary at this point.

I had to go to the junkyard to pick up a starter motor and a switch (inside the dash). If you look in the Electrical section, you'll see my 2-page post on my car and its raw hate for electricity. Plus, there'* a video that shows the snow falling through the windshieldless Bonneville as I was ripping away the dashboard trim piece. Good times.

Some drunk at a 2006-07 New Year'* Eve party kicked my car but slashed someone else'* 4 brand new tires. I put the panel back on, but it classily fell off when I opened the door. I'm working on fixing it.

Yes, Monopoly is addictive. I like it more when I'm winning, though...
