Primarily, I suck at guitar, I am a whiz with the PC. And Cars... yeah I think you saw my LTD, but I don't want to put anything bigger then 18 inch rims on it

Thanks. I love the midwest in the summer too. I also part of the Purdue FSAE (Formula Society of Automotive Engineers) team. I joined so I could learn more about cars. Have done alot of machining work and have really enjoyed the experience so far. If you are interested, we compete in May at Michigan International Speedway for FSAE.

I'll post up pics of the battleship. Its got about 4000 pieces to it. I've already built this model once when I was 11. The movers destroyed it when we moved to IN when I was 18.

Yeah, I have been telling myself for years, that I need to treavel to some car shows and stuff with the family, but with small kids it's hard.

Jaxon, my 7yr old would love it.

I took him to a swap meet this weekend and it was a good time.

My wife is really not into cars that much, but loved my Camaro and loves my Suburban.


What is the competition about?

2005 CTSV BLACK LS7 Clutch/Flywheel/Slave, Tick Speed Bleeder, Tilton Clutch MC, RevShift Bushings, Domestic V8 Solutions (shifter, 8.8 Diff conversion, srut tower braces, sub-frame connectors), SLP cats, no cags, xpipe, bullet mufflers, Volante, iPod dock, G-force tune; 379hp 381tq.

Uhm, those are nice rims, but I am not really into the mustang 5 spoke setup like that. I will probably go with some Spoke Rims, that look good..... I know hard to find.

too plain, and the ltd is hardly a performance car. Frantic has it right. spokes are the way to go.
