    After paying for a set of tires I decided to take it easy on the burn outs.
    What tires are you using? I used to burn through pilot sports in about 12-15k miles in my old car, now I'm using potenza re50's. $1500 for 20k miles.... Painful

    That's the one part about going back to my stock wheels that I do like. The don't corner nearly as well, but they last a lot longer and the ride is much smoother. Riding on 40 series is a commitment on these beat up CA freeways. I ended up cracking 3 of my 4 wheels, but at least it took 120K + miles. Here's my baby at her peak, rolling into Six Flags Marine World to be in a Scion display:



    Here it is in a Scion print ad. Mine is the only one they didn't Photoshop the license plate off, so I can prove it is mine! And yes, this is an actual shot, not put together by PS. The background may be shopped, but the collection of cars is real, is what I mean.


    They also shot a video ad, but I can't spot my car for sure. They had us drive to Vegas, they took our cars, threw us a big party including Flo Rida while they shot the commercial.

    But can she haul a 52 inch tv, upright?



    OR pull a 17.95 second 1/4 mile?



    Ok, so yeah, everyone can beat that time, even the Prius smoked me in straight racing, but I took 3rd out of about 16 cars when it came to the bracket racing. Look at these reaction times. These were against an Evo, a 60's mustang, an Acura and a 70 Nova, respectively. If I hadn't faulted first, I would have beat the Nova to be in the finals.

    Nope, but I did drive across the country with a 46" Sony xbr in the trunk. Couldn't put the top down but at least I have my tv here in FL now.

    I did manage to fit a 10' Christmas tree in the passenger seat though unlimited headroom and what not

    I got pulled over on coast highway once for "exhibition of speed". I told the cop I was more of a voyeur. He wasn't amused, not even a little....

    I'll start with the link:


    There are certain movies that no matter what you're doing, if you're flipping the channels and you find it, you can kiss the next 90+ minutes away. No matter how many times you've seen it, they make you split a gut every time - even it you've seen it a hunderd times.

    I'll stop there. I only meant to pick 5 or 10, but they just keep coming. Feel free to add to the list.

    Doubt it. When the choice is between Oliver Wood (who's actual name is Sean Biggerstaff...seriously I can't make this sh!t up) and Ginger...I mean Ginny Weasley the choice should be obvious.

    Your young yet, just give it time. Now for myself I have a Doctorate with credit for advanced research. If I try a little harder they may name the classroom after me.
