Continuing the strange behavior the wife has greenlighted my getting yet another new toy if I can find something I really want... confusion continues,, no????

Sooo..... Went shopping today, but didn't pull the trigger on anything.

Looked at a 13k mile late 2nd gen camaro, base model 350v8. (Used to own a 78z28) nice in all the right ways but it's hard to spend decent money on a base model.

Looked at a properly kept up sub 1000 mile late c3 vette, always liked the styling, and color combo was both rare and killer looking... but the price was just too high imo.

Looked at a pace car fiero (used to have an 88) but it needed too many 1 yr only parts to be right.

Also sent an email on an online long-distance 82gn, haven't owned one in a long time but have tons of spare parts still so I thought I'd see what was up with it, haven't heard anything back yet.

No nice blue 442s around that some online searching showed or that might be a winner, my blue car went away around 2007.

Okay, I'll bite, what is so special about Brazilian Steak? I have heard that Argentina has excellent beef and of course there is always the high zoot item that Japan produces, Kobe beef but Brazil? Much as I'd like to tear into a decent steak, i haven't sunk my teeth into anything approaching outstanding in the T-Bone or better class of meat in quite a while. Too much kumbaya and tofu burger being touted instead of good red protein. Figure one of these days that walking into a restaurant will mean running a gauntlet of vegans waving signs with "murderer" written on them because the menu includes genuine meat.

Not really sure to be honest, I am not usually a big fan of Texas De Brazil like my buddies who go wild for that place. I believe this sandwich was just called that because it had chimichurri sauce. It was supposed to have wilted kale, baby spinach, and roasted red peppers but since I asked for no kale I got just the meat and sauce which was still surprisingly delicious. Personally I am usually just a filet guy since I hate deal with fat and grisle, I always say I'm first world for a reason
Ah, McLellan83, caught the slide show up above and one thing baffles me. Is that orange Heintz, the one with the 68? GTO front clip hung on a Olds Cutlass body and all plopped down on a 4 by chassis just something for the shows and meets or is it actually a daily driver? Marrying half a goat to half a non-goat, well, genius and sacrilege both come to mind, and either or both could even appear in the same sentence, depending on perspective.



Nick
Hard to tell in that video or pics, but that dude had crazy amounts of work into doing all that obviously just by marrying it all. But between the secureness of the running board and the fact that he closed up all seams shows how much time and effort he put into the deal. From what my buddy told me he would see it around regularly so I guess not a daily but driven regularly

Appreciate the backstories. Agree on the quality of work and workmanship to marry it all together as tight as the fleeting shots seem to show. Just me being personally picky but had it been mine to do, think I would have slammed it ever so slightly as opposed to needing a ladder to get in and a box of kleenex for the potential nosebleeds from the altitude. However, it do make changing the fluids and greasing the chassis a little easier to do.

Also agree on the matter of what makes a good steak good. I am not a sauce person and exotic rabbit food is still just rabbit food at the end of the shift. The best steaks that I ever enjoyed stood on their own, naked and unafraid. You can lay the blame for sauce (insert shudder here) at the feet and tables of the medieval english and french who dreamed them up to mask and hide the fact that the meat in the meal being served was rancid at best and rotten at worst.

Today I got emission and state safety inspections done on my new [to me] 2001 Tahoe. Titling and registering is another story (what a goat rope!) VA DMV only provides service by appointment and nothing available till September. Mailed off the application paperwork to HQ-DMV today. These covid excuses for not providing service are getting so old their beards are longer than mine!

Question here> You've mailed the paperwork in and, presumably, booked your appointment for September, so what happens if/when you make an appearance for your appointment and the clerk-inquisitor decides she/he is unhappy with it for whatever reason and rejects it? Do you have to go through the whole song and dance all over again or do you book another appointment with a different office and hope they are more sensible and realistic about it?

Put up a cheap *ss organizer from the usual scumbags. Mounted it over the bike tool box. Just need to sort my spare small parts,organize and borrow a label machine from work for a weekend.

Seeing how apparently it was world MTB day I took the whip out for a couple mile spin on some dirt after a brake bleed and fixing a creaking saddle.

Hope to hit up the Fernie bike park with a buddy in the next week or 2. I might have to head up to Crowsnest Pass this weekend and earn some turns before I drink beer on the chairlift and bomb down a mountain. I may feel less guilty that way? Heh.. probably not.

I'll pull it out of the garage this week and send you some info and pics on it. The wife was talking about registering it yesterday actually.
Looking forward to it
