    Re: The Car Topic

    So a bit of racing news: Fernando Alonso, of the Honda-McLaren F1 team, has declared that we will not race in this year's Monaco Grand Prix and instead will race in this years Indianapolis 500. Why do this? To achieve the Triple Crown of Motorsports. What's the Triple Crown of Motorsports you ask? It constitutes winning the three most prestigious races in the world: the Monaco Grand Prix, the Indianapolis 500, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans (doesn't have to be in the same year and Alonso has already won a Monaco GP).

    Welp my 442 is down for a while. blew the freeze plug out of the head tonight while stretching her legs. My fault honestly because I was going to remove the heads and replace the plugs a month or so ago because one was seeping but I didn't I just replaced the one the best I could with the heads still on her. Chalk one up for being lazy and cheap, actually not the whole truth I just don't feel like working on her anymore. Its going on almost 15 years owning her come next year and I have just lost interest. My son loves the car to death and aside from the fact I know I will probably never own another A-Body 442 ever again is about the only thing keeping her in my garage. I could fix her in a weekend or 2 right now but I know thats not going to happen.

    Its weird, when I got her back on the road 4 years ago I was so amped and drove her all the time, but I lost interest in car shows after a while and just drove her around even for basic errands, even managed to rack up 15k miles in those 4 years and aside from the radiator going and a battery dying she has been rock solid reliable, I haven't even had to adjust the points.

    Well it looks like Vic Edelbrock Jr has passed which is a shame for the aftermarket parts industry, I have never read anything negative about him and always stood behind his products so it will be a sad time again in this car world

    Aaah cars! Love cars. I've had a few cars but some of the ones I still would like to have one day are a Toyota Supra, a Corvette, NSX, well, the list would be huge lol... currently I have a Nissan 300zx TT (not stock, ha ha) a Lexus RC-F and a Lexus GS350 F-Sport. Going to be replacing the GS pretty soon but don't know what will be next

    Re: The Car Topic

    So lately I've hearing some interesting Formula One rumors. Now, it's no secret that the McLaren and Honda team partnership has been tenuous and strained over this year's championship (they haven't even scored a single point due to constant engine failure). However, it's now gotten to the point that McLaren has told Honda that if they don't get their $#!+ together, McLaren will find a new power unit supplier. And it's not just limited to the constructors: rumor has it that Fernando Alonso will leave the team if they don't score a single point this year and will drive full-time for an Indy Car team.
