An in-depth look at white trash etiquette

Recommended Posts

Been driving he shit outta it. Got back to Austin, saw Kool Keith that night. Shit was AWESOME, motheruckin Bushwick Bill showed up a half hour in and got up and rocked the shit for another 40 mins with him, then another half hour or so of Dr.Octagon. Ungh!!!

Next day I scooped the kid, went skating for a bit. He thinks the Chaser looks cooler than the MarkII. Weird.

Then dropped him off and lit out for San Antonio.

Got there, the driver window wouldn't roll up again. FML.

Went ahead and did some travel hashing, met a dude with some swag from Lofty's place of birf

Did 170km/h home the next day, took the door apart. Have a regulator from a Cressida in the trunk now, gonna try to switch the motors. Everything seems solid, so guessing that's it. Gonna grab the multimeter shortly.

Found out the car has some jams

Basic white bitch

And found this pic online where some folks blasted a selfie with the 81

Just over 1k kilometers on her here in the states, the window and the door lock solenoid on passenger rear are the only issues it seems. Thing runs like a champ. What to do, what to do...

 

 

I almost wanna part the MarkII out to nothing and March on with this one, but I won't.

Yanked the regulator out. Hardtop inner doors (Chaser/MarkII) are quite a bit more involved, yet the regulator is very similar. Still not enough to work. BUT! The motors *look* identical. One of these is up, the other is down, so I should know what's up in a bit. Fingers crossed

Just sitting. I literally have ZERO money. 86'd the gf at the worst possible time, but there's shit I just won't deal with. I let my stupid ass let her talk me out of taking a job that interfered with her day-off schedule, and now I got nothing. Good lesson though!

Yeah, it's awkward for me now. I'll go travel hashing if I ever travel. Not a bad time

Chaser is a little lower. Maybe I'll get matching wheels on it this week. Also took the boy out skating the city and just for general hangs. Started at Metro skatepark, then House Park skatepark, hit up grafitti park since he'd never been (it was just a place to take hoes and smoke blunts and fuck around when I was in high school), then ended up just parking downtown and skating some parking garages and the city. Showed the kiddo the nightlife as it just begins, summer we'll do late nights. Love my kid. Skating now and driving later. Hope I get to live long enough to have a hit and run partner come high school time

Oh hey. Need to figure out how to post pics again, but I guess the gx has been a jzedx for 6ish months. Homemade knuckles still holding, snapped both the XM flca ball joints, waiting for the replacements to break, car is a daily with a hood exit, and gets beaten relentlessly. Sometimes it looks cool, sometimes it looks haggard, but it always runs. Got hit in a parking lot, busted out a rear window, ordered a door from Japan, and its still doing the things it needs to do. I wish my life was as consistent as a jzx81.

cant wait til the "third party hosting is blocked" images across every single forum are replaced with nothing because photobucket went the way of the dinosaurs and myspace.

 

they should have signed a deal w/ fedguv like facebook to have their storage totally subsidized in return for sending your personal info to the NSA.

I think the NSA already keeps an eye on my photobucket account.

Of course Im poor and havent had a job for a month maybe. Pretty sure Brian and Lofty booked me up with a decent manifold thatll be here this week. Start a new job tomorrow that should allow me to get to a decent place. I just need to stop being me and enjoy what I got going for me. I have some great friends, live in a house with my current bff/best wingman a dude could ever ask for, and I didnt wake up dead. Lets see if I can make it another decade Im this world and make it count, and somehow keep an x8.
