Thanks. I still want to put tubular control arms on the front along with the front brakes and that will drop the car another 1/2" in the front. Hoping to do that in a couple of months and then the car might be done at that point.

@Dave:
Considering your posted age (20), I assume you are either a student, a working man or both. That Vibe is a perfect DD for your needs and considering what you have in it, you have yourself a keeper. BTW...Thanks for the compliment on the SAAB.

You assumed correctly! I am both a student and part time "working man" and the Vibe is great for my needs. Its nice to have something I can trust and not worry about (school parkig lots...) when I have somewhere I need to be! If I do decide to pick up something else as a daily driver in the near future, Ill probably give the Vibe to my sister for her first car!

And no problem, I like your taste in cars so I confident I will be liking any future purchases you make as well!

And thanks Tyler! I do like the way they look black better than when they were Silver!

Picked up our latest family addition this weekend, a 1997 Jaguar XJR with 42k miles cool

Flew down to Houston, TX on Friday and drove it back to North Carolina over the weekend, dropping by and surprising family in Louisiana while I was at it!

It shares some family with the Riviera, using an Eaton SC and GM transmission smile

Since image shack removed all of my pictures from my account for some reason. I have gone with another image hosting site and have been reposting all of my pictures that were lost on the forums. Here are the pictures of my past and currents cars besides the Riv. My 76 Riv that I had till 2003 and currently my 82 Suzuki chopper and 87 IROC which is the next project.

Well, I'm listed as an owner on this one, but in real life, it's the wife's

About the middle of May, I got one of those phone calls from the wife that everybody dreads: "I've been in an accident." Near head-on with another car turning left in front of her at 40 mph. She got lucky, a couple of cracked ribs and bruises from the seat belt and airbags.

Her '06 Tacoma, not so much:


Totaled


After the typical wrangling with the insurance company, on Monday, this is what we brought home:


Pretty much the same truck, except this time we went with a 4x4 instead of the PreRunner. I was very much impressed with the quality and reliability in the Tacoma. Most importantly, I was VERY impressed with how the Taco performed in a crash situation. 60mph combined frontal/driver's side impact, there was very little deforming of the driver's area, and she was able to get out of the truck under her own power. I guess there's a lot to be said for a full frame.

Also, she drove the Riviera for a couple weeks while we were getting things sorted out. She asked me to get the A/C fixed so she could drive it more often. I KNEW she'd get hooked! happy

That's pretty impressive for a 60mph crash. Is it just me or are the windshield wipers on the crashed truck bent/broken/something?

Kevin, so happy your wife is OK. What was the "wrangling with the insurance company"?

The wipers flipped over on the impact. They always kind of freewheeled when you pulled them off the glass. When I got there, they were up like that, and they were like that when the truck got hauled to Copart. In fact, they hit the glass so hard that the windshield cracked where the knuckle hit the glass.

You know, the typical phone tag, talking to three different people, etc. Nothing out of the ordinary. The other driver was at fault, and it was pretty cut and dried. I guess I should include "wrangling with the dealer" in that time frame too. lol

Updated pictures of Camaro with new wheels and tires. You can see the Riv in the background. I had to put my winter wheels and tires on for now since my summer tires are about shot.

Time to Ruck it up!



2012 Honda Ruckus, bought it completely stock minus the lazy eye headlight and forward foot pegs three Fridays ago and I've already put my touch on it. Costs me $200/year to insure as the first vehicle I've ever had under my own name, I spend $10/month in gas since it gets 120mpg, and this thing is just an absolute dream to have. Only goes 44mph downhill with a tailwind, but that's all I need to be happy!

I have my own garage for the first time in my life for the summer since my housing was provided for my internship, and I've been taking advantage of it to the fullest. Spray paint booth(blue tarp on the ground), work space, weather shield, everything.

Since buying it, I've done the following:

Painted seat frame rear rails black for 'floating' look
COB LED underglow panels, SMD turn signal strips on front box and rear frame rail
GP exhaust
Radiator hose 1.5" intake
Re-jet carburetor
Organize all engine air/ventilation hoses
White wall tires
Hand-painted Uncle Ruckus mural
Polini variator and weights
Clear coolant tank
Ruck Squadron radiator cover
0.88lb battery versus stock 7lb, new one puts out 5 more CCA's
NCY CDI(removes rev limiter)
Password JDM 6" stretch
Lowered handlebars from '94 Suzuki, BMX stem
Taillight delete - replaced with lit license plate frame and under-seat light
Rear foot pegs, Walmart special
Yellow halogen, superbright tiny LED headlight
Corner puddle lights
Lowered seat frame(dremel, drill, 4lb hammer)
Louis Vuitton seat cover(not authentic, but real)

That's my motorcycle trailer, by the way. Also registered in my name!

In chronological order, click the spoiler to show all:

Cool! Just to clarify, in the front angle it looks like it could pass as a small motorcycle, but what we're looking at is a scooter, right?
