doing what I love to do

Alot has happen since I’ve last updated my blog. And I mean a lot. I don’t know why I don’t post on here often, I guess it’s because I don’t have much of a following and really i only think 2 people actually read my posts but what ever, fuck it.

first off; I just graduated high school; what a big relieve that was. I think now I don’t have to focus on school as much and i can start actually working and start accumulating money so I can build a cool car. I think now I’ll be more focused on trying to do what I actually like to do, which is to drive (hopefully). But first I have to build a cool car.

I ended up getting rid of the stock zenki I just bought for a little daily Alitma from a buddy of mine. So since I have really no cool car at that point. I decided to go out with the money I have and buy another one. (Smart huh)

A friend of mine; Will Parsons drove me 48 hours round trip to Ohio to pick up this race car I ran across on Facebook for a really good price. I slid him some money and I left the day after my graduation ceremony.

The car I ended up purchasing was a 1998 240SX.

I plan on sticking with this car for a very long time due to how cool it looks and how much is invested into it. I think the end product of this car can be pretty amazing. I’ve always secretly wanted a rowdy race car essentially. I think it would make for a better driving experience and just more of a fun car to drive.

There are a few things that need to still be done to get it fully ready to go. So I will try my best to update the blog as much as possible as I make progress with the new car.

Here are some pictures from the trip
