Sooooooooooooo.......... 2013 was one of the hardest years of my entire life. Full of awesome and tragic ups and downs. I lost my mother in February, but went on tour with my band in March, then my JZX83 got totaled while parked outside my house in May, then got cool sponsors and started building another cress for a daily, then in July my Father got diagnosed with a severely failing Liver, then went on a life changing vacation in Austin, TX in October, then lost my Grandmother in November, but finally got this new piece of shit on the road. Not trying to clammer for any sympathy, just wanted to get it out there that 2013 was a bitch. It's not the coolest thing in the world but it is really fun to drive and I really like it. Has coils, knuckles, tension rods, subframe/diff bushings and probably a few more things. And VVTi is really neat btw. This is the car that got smooshed: I had been daily driving that thing for a few years (put over 50k miles on the swap) and then one night while cooking some nice food I heard a loud bang and my dog barked a bunch. Go outside to see a big black guy in an ES300 with a flat tire. I asked him if he was ok and then noticed a trail of fluid on the ground leading away from my car. That's when I realized he had hit my cress and made my car smash into my JZS161... Needless to say I got REALLY mad... and called the cops. They came out and didn't find that he was under the influence of anything and wrote up a report for me. I think he was texting while driving and went to turn onto his street about 150ft too early. Went through about a month of hell with insurance trying to get what was right for the car, and in the end I got a fair amount, then bought the car back (obviously) for $600. Everyone scrambled to try and find me another X8 but I didn't want one. More on that later. So as it is right now I am going to be daily driving the X7, am about done parting out the X8, will be building a different chassis for the 2JZGTE, and still have another 4 door in the works from looooong ago. Don't really know why I am posting this but who cares. I still have an X-chassis with a jz swap so you can't kick me out.
