Oh, man. That Mario display is awesome.

Speaking of what happens when people have too much time on their hands, here's a repost that I felt needed to be immortalized in the pictures thread, Steve Jobs' head made out of cheese:

Sadly, Yes. Mine was an 88 2.3 longbed that my Grandfather bought brand new. I got it after he passed and completely loved the truck, but it started to get kind of run down. Had just completed a 4" suspension drop and was about to drop in a 2.3 turbo I hacked together from a TurboChicken/XR4Ti.

Ford used really poor quality wire and the pvc jacket just falls off the wire, it shorted out and caught fire. I put all my heart and soul in that truck and was completely crushed to watch it burn. Actually attempted to rebuild it but abandoned the project and tried to sell it after I couldn't get the motor to run correctly. Had one kid come by to look at it and ended up walking, so I sold it to my brother who is going to complete the turbo motor install with megasquirt.

The motor in it now is a stock 2.3 with short header, a homebrew ported head and racerwalsh stage 3 cam. Truck has a serious lope to the idle for a 4 cylinder and pulls really hard way past redline. Come to find out the cam belt skipped a tooth which is why it wasn't running very well, plus the high pressure fuel pump died.

First picture is the stock Ford Ranger fuel system.
The rest are HIS new fuel system...

very nice...
my ranger was supposed to be my "reliable" car. hahahaha.
here is a pic of my two red bitches



i never planned on doing anything with it, just drive it to and from work when the ms3 was getting worked on.

after the shifter broke off, i sold the **** for 260 bucks...
i bought it for 560...it got me around for a few months...not a horrible loss.

Oh man. Maybe I'm just a shitty metalhead, but when the lyrics get to that level of growling, I feel like its detrimental to the quality of the music behind it.

Lol @ the cat and Seasons in the Abyss. Too much cat nip.

Let me guess, he has a 1.6 and didn't swap out the rear end for a 1.8 diff?

It is nice to get a project on the road.

This came in the mail yesterday (amazing that it was only $0.35 shipping). Three heavy layers of thick cardboard. Shoe above it for size comparison:






So what was in it?











Something I have always wanted. A Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven 45. You couldn't buy these in stores. Only released to radio stations. I stole this one at $78. I had bid $151 on three others this year and $400+ on a slightly rarer version of one (different cover/label). Lost all the other bids by less than $5.

I can't really tell from the pictures, but does it have the station's library stamp on the label?


Also, sometimes censorship can be sexy:

No, it has a name written on one side. Doesn't really bother me too much though.
