Yesterday I spent a while engaged on the Soiled Cougar, the primary work I’ve accomplished since earlier than the February King of the Heap occasion. I re-aimed the headlight on the wrecked aspect of the nostril so I might need a minimum of one helpful gentle (the motive force’s aspect is completely freaking hopeless, even with a brand new bulb), I re-applied the KOTH stickers for the March occasion that’s developing this weekend, I made positive that the 5.zero and AOD are nonetheless glad, checked tires…you understand, the same old stuff. Not that the automotive actually wants it…I’ve pushed the Cougar a lot for the reason that February race that Indignant Grandpa’s battery really went flat. It’s really a fairly respectable bomber of a automotive, snug, quiet and a stable cruiser that has a superb heater and a surprisingly good sound system, however after some consideration and a few discussions with mates, I’ve determined that after the March race, that the Cougar might be moved on. There’s already a full plate of initiatives at AutoCarTechNews Mid-West that want my consideration for the yr…not solely do I must get my ass in gear and drop the Imperial’s transmission for it’s full rebuild, however I must get began on the Nice Pumpkin Mustang’s five-lug conversion.
And it appears that evidently I’m not the one one pondering that there’s one automotive too many within the lot. My mates Paul and Riley made the decision to promote their beloved Volvo rally automotive in order that they will proceed to make headway on Paul’s unusual Lancia affliction that has wanted consideration for…what number of years now? (Nothing however love, Paul, you understand that!) Seeing his Scorpion get completed is a powerful sufficient objective that the Volvo will be made right into a sacrificial lamb.
As an addict that has had a couple of relapses (like in 2010, after I was as much as 9 particular person initiatives that every one wanted main consideration, plus a aspect mission for another person) I’ve come to know that there’s a level the place it’s a must to increase your fingers and say, “sufficient”. Until you’ve obtained the cash and the acreage to only roll the shell into the again forty till you’re able to mess with it, it’s a must to restrict what you’ve obtained available. I’ve violated the “4 automobiles max” rule that Haley and I agreed on from the second the Cadillac limo confirmed up final January and the one motive I used to be secure with the SN-95 Mustang was as a result of it was all for her automotive.
So, for our query, we wish to know: the place do you draw the road?
