Default New head unit, or not...

So a few years back I had a 1996 S10 with a vortec V-6, and I had this head unit in it...I sold that truck and bought a 1997 ZR-2 and swapped head units..this went on for maybe 3 years. Then I wrecked my ZR-2 and bought a 2000 Silverado, and again swapped head units. Now it's been 2 1/2 years since I had this head unit has been in my silverado and it seems every year when it gets cold, it ejects the cd like 1/2" or not at all. So my friend had a Pioneer 1.5 Dinn size DEH-P47D head unit, I bought for $50. Just installed it today. This is the same CD player I had in my Trans Am GTA 5 years ago, but so some reason, I love it...
I can turn my amp off and on...control EVERY setting...do anything. This is like the Hydra Nemesis of Head Units, and it's 8 years old, WTF.

So aside from talking about head units, anyone every get their miata stuck? My garage has 2 bays. I have my 1950 ****** in the one and the miata in the other. I backed the miata out yesterday to install this head unit in the truck, and I backed it across the driveway into the yard; which was covered in snow. I installed the head unit, backed the truck out, started the car, and tried to move it. Went nowhere fast. Good thing I didn't remove my front tow hooks, cause I chained the miata to the truck and pulled it back up on the driveway.

It's natural, and people love my hair. My sister is a master hair stylist, with huge clientèle and every time I walk in her salon to visit with models and celebrities, every single person in there has to come up and play with my hair. Stylists, clients, everyone. I have random people walk up to me and ask me about my hair, how I got it, if I am single, etc. Its gotten to the point that its pretty hard to go anywhere because I'm like a celebrity. People come up to me and compliment my hair constantly its like I'm Brad Pitt, but with better hair...mobs of people. I'm not really sure why its so perfect, especially considering I spend about 30-seconds on it to get it looking perfect, but it just comes together. I highly recommend you reevaluate your hairstyle, because you could probably learn a lot from mine.

Ok Zohan...I get it. I'll keep my senseless ramble to myself, and strictly stick to the performance of my car.
