What has 54inches been up to.

Well gents.....

There are some real idiota on here these days.

I remember when I was a top 3 poster on here.

That was before the padders came on here...cough cough Jinx....


Seriously, since the baby has been here and my busy season at Hotel started last month, I have been balls to the wall......


I just finished the Houston Marathon on Monday and by "finish", I mean they were one of my clients at the hotel......

I do not run races, I drag races!

Well, as some of you know, my wife bought a new Trailblazer in August and I bought a used CTS.

I made some really nice friends at the Chevrolet/Cadillac dealership. I am on a first name bases with their #2.

They are holding me a Camaro.

My wife is on board, but I am not sure how two kids and a wife are going to fit in the Camaro.

Life is just what has been going on.

I am glad to see some of the NEW Mods on here.

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.

Killing 5th gens like it is my job.

Welcome back.

Great choices with the new vehicles!

Don't worry, 2 child seats will fit EASILY in the back seat of a Camaro.

What? I don't get a mention? I've worked really hard to make useless posts....

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

Thanks guys.

The general base of people on here ROCK.

Even most the guys over at the CTS forum are tools!

My wife really likes her new Trailblazer and I love my CTS.

I know I would love a new Camaro, but I want a $40K dollar one and right now I am not in the place in my career to do it.

I drive one of the sickest cars at work (900 employees) and I would love to keep it that way.

Gotta keep up the appearances. JJ!

Seriously, I am not sure I would want either of my kids right next to the wheel well of a car when it gets in a wreck, but then again that might be the safest place?!

I like the position we are in financially and I will not stretch that for anything, well at least any further than it is already stretched. he he...

CUONCRS.....well at least your posts are immature reposts that I cannot stand! Love ya man!

What are you looking to get on your new Camaro, I know we
dont know what it will have but if you had to chose what they
have out now as options what would you go with?

The biggest engine with no options whatsoever.

Fast and light, just like my last one.

Maybe just maybe a few of the below:

AC
PW
PD
PL

Besides that, not much.

Welllll, here's the deal on my CTS.

I bought her in August with barely 30,000 miles. Mint condition 2003.

Some non-resident did about $4000 damage to the driver's side and I got her back right after Xmas.

I had the front grille blacked out, the rear bezel blacked out.

I have in my hand smoked turn signals, fogs and the window tint will be going on right after I get my bonus and pay off the VISA.

The wheels will be powder coated black probably this summer and then I should be done for awhile.

By that time I should be looking for a BLACK CAMARO.


It is really good to hear from ALL of you guys, but I am missing a few and pissed at one that has not dropped a dime on my thread.

LuLu you are the bastage. You have officially hurt my **** feelings.

Not really I am just under the weather and acting like a ***** today......


Y'all need to see the pics of my 4x4. It is a beast.

BBC, 2 transfer cases, 2 1/2 axles on 50" michelin military tread.

All wrapped up in a Suburban.


Pics soon to follow on the CTS.

Let me get the turns and fogs installed.......


Anybody ever tinted their tail lights?

I think I am about to spray mine with a Black Cherry tinted clear. It looks black when off, but when you hit the lights they look closer to stock than the vinyl crap.
