Love the Beast
 
This is like a preview of film Eric Bana produced. I saw it on Speed sometime. It was pretty good. Now I need to find a copy. Check it out yo!

Clarkson!

tiz a pretty cool movie, proud to say that he is not only a fellow country man but also a fellow state man. remember boys all muscle cars are shit :D i laughed at that line by GC... my mrs still doesnt get it (the whole car thing) even after watching that movie, i think girls just see all cars as a corolla

yea everynow and then I realize that spending lots and lots of money on my car is a complete waste. But, then I realize it is what completes me in a way and if i quit, it would only be a matter of days before I realized that if I didnt have my car to focus on I would be lost. I mean my Wife and Kid are the most important things in my life really I would never put them second. But, like I told my wife a long time ago. If I thought about her as much as I think about what I am going to do to my car all day long she would hate me. I would call her all the time and constantly think about modifying her.
I think she gets it. Even gets turned on when she sees me ripping around in it.

About the movie. I plan on watching it as soon as it hits netflix. (will be checking in about 5 min)

That was a surprisingly good movie. I caught it on Speed about a year ago. Eric Bana is a good actor too, and I like him even more knowing about his race history.

Car hobbies kill money. So do vacations, wine, food, motorhomes, and eventually general investing dies. the money will get spent somewhere.

Fuck it. I got about the same return on my DSM parts than I got on my 401K anyway. Spend the damned money.

My wife doesn't like my Miata at all, too girly. She does love performance cars in general and has a deeper appreciation and love for muscle cars. She actually takes me to the drags on a saturday night, not the other way round.

sprx3 03-24-2010 03:50 PM

DUDE, your wife da man !!!:D

i wish, she likes my mx5 but hates anything to do with cars, mind you her brother & father are both mechanics..... go figure !!!

she gets dragged to any car thing i want to take her too :( which is not much really.... although i must say she does try at times, we just got back from japan in which she booked us a holiday for my birthday to see the mazda museum.... i thought that was ultra cool

It's amazing the way music and slow-mo shots can make you feel:o
