Alright, I guess this is a introduction thread or something? IDK.

So, I guess I could start with what I drive. Or, rather, ride. Or I could start about myself. Let's do that.

So, as of now I'm some kid 2 years out of high school who's going to join the Air Force innabit. But not now, of course. If I joined now, I wouldn't have time to do the sh!t that I do.

So, back to what I was saying, I just drove out from Palm Springs to my new place in Glendora (Which is a suburb of LA for those who failed Cali).

First, I'll show a picture of when I stopped for gas in the High Desert. Odd place, kinda. Reminds me of the Salton Sea but smells more like crystal meth than dead fish.



Yeah, I ride a GSXR. H8rs gonna h8.

Anyway, here's some better pictures of the bike in my new actual garage.



'But Nick! Where's your exhaust?!'

Oh, it's right here.



Yeah, it took me a while to get in the habit of always getting off on the left side, but it's loud AF, not to mention how much power I freed up. Anyway, I'm probably going to get an actual project soon, as this bike is enough of a daily.

@Lagano Tbh, I was thinking of turboing it, but that bike is already dangerous enough.

Alright, so, I sold my GSXR750 for 8000V$ yesterday. However, I soon bought a replacement which is doubling as my DD for now.


You wake up on a shack, with news of the Vietnam war playing on your radio. Shaking your head, you grab a vintage board, and your keys too......

This thing, baby!



Oh yeah, paid 2700 V$ for her. Fastest it goes is 54, on the downhill section of the I-10 going towards Downtown LA. I haven't even tried getting it up GMR yet, I don't think it's worth a try. Anyway, I should mention that I spent a good amount of my childhood playing Street Rod 1 and 2, and watching movies like Grease and Rebel without a Cause, so don't be surprised if you see me buying complete classics. Anyway, since you want more of the bug....

Ah shit. Sadly the Corvair was sold a few days ago, some old man bought it off me for $2,000 more than I payed for it. :p

@Smokiegun What're ya getting to replace it?

Anyway, I did a thing.

Purists, look away.

So, today I spent 80 bucks on a new straight pipe, and 500 on a set of period correct Fenton Mags.



Oh yeah.....



And just incase the first picture doesn't do the pipe justice.....



I've had to relearn how to back into places with this thing. Anyway, anyone selling a Baja Bug type spoiler?

You have room to talk, you own both a SN95 and a Corvette. The last time I saw something with so little room, the poor woman carrying it had to get a C Section.

@dxg1997 I could probably make the bug backfire via flooding the carb, but I really don't wanna do that. The GSXR popped like hell if you let off after going WOT, if that counts.

Alright, I'm finally back, baby! And, some stuff has gone down today.

Well, yesterday, I sold my roof rack for 1000$, and I bought this baja bug wing for 750$.



And then, while on a late night while browsing craigslist, I spotted this.


And I thought, huh. A case of Budwesier and 15$ of pizza? Not bad at all.

So, the next day I showed up, and god damn.

Thankfully, most of it is surface rust and on panels that are easily replaced.

So, it got a tow back to my friend's shop, and whaddya know, it really did have a 283 SBC.


At this point, I was giddy with excitement. Like, holy crap, I finally get my own truck! Then my friend called me to the back of the truck.


Yeah, the whole beds rusted through, in some places I can look out at the chassis and shit. To be honest, I kinda wanted to go bedless anyway, but not like this. But, when I stared down the massive amount of rust in the bed, I was reminded of one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books:


Anyway, my finances are:
24720
+1000
-750
-35
-50

That comes out to, like, 24885? Sounds right. Anyway, the SBC is for sale if anyone wants it, the tranny comes free with it.
