Im baaack

Dont really know how many actually missed me, probably none, but its ok. I haven't been on here in about a year and a half. Sold the ranger I had, went to the dark side and got an 04 Envoy with the 5.3. When it started falling apart at 95k miles like all GM's do, I bought(yes, I know) a 09 civic. Being in the car since July, and missing a truck after having to place logs in the trunk of my car to move them, I came across another Ranger Based Vehicle. Picked up the new project of an '87 Bronco 2. NC folks that I've wheeled with before...give me a few months to get her right, it'll be ready for Uwharrie when it opens next year for certain.

My ranger through its many transformations.

Good thing about the B2, I dont mind cutting a hole in the fender for a snorkel or trimming fenders, I dont worry about hitting a tree and deploying my airbags, a dent....well that adds character. Best part, if I break it, I can park it until it gets fixed, to bad my civic cant pull it around. My ranger went through some stuff, the B2 now has a lot to live up to.

unfortunately not. Im back in the Raleigh area. I float in and out of Charlotte for work, but not at school anymore. 1 year there was enough for me. Too fast paced for me.

yea, got rid of her valentines day of 08, it saddened me as I was cleaning my miles of wires that accumulated under the carpet from all the additions, and the numerous broken parts collected in the toolbox from giving it too much hell on the trails, but it was time to part with it. I was looking at a 5000 bill in the future for repairs. had the envoy until July of this year and had enough of GM's problems, so traded that in for...yes I know. a new honda civic. then picked up the b2 last week. wont tell anyone for how much. lol.

as for you dstrip...I actually grew up and currently live in FV, right on the harnett co/ wake co line. the whole college thing, I know that youve probly heard this from your parents and such, dont give up and give it your hardest. I luckily fell in good with a Honeywell distributor when I came back as a sales support rep and am doing better than most my age(21). But I also count my blessings everyday and am thankful for my job. with that piece of paper, you can go anywhere. stick in there, itll be worth it.
