Unusual Picture of Shane

I don't know what to say about this. I guess I could explain I just sanded and painted the lower control arms. Look closely and you can see the shocks, airbags, and front air ride height control pivot arm. The front chrome is original and is very expensive to replate due to the bumpers being aluminum. I am debating doing it since they are still good but not great. Hmm...

Second shot has nothing to do with anything.

No. But that would be kinda retro cool now that I think about it. Next you'll be making fun of my hat.

You really have an issue with the clean uncluttered lines of the Scandinavian ethic.

The SO and I took the day off and traveled up to Sea-town for a little "stimulating" excursion. Those cunning Swedes finagled me out of my entire stimulus check, and then some. Bloody Lutheran bastards knew that I'd be easy prey for intelligent design and all manner of space-efficient creationism. Filled the Audi up, we did...

This is my 14 y/o (6 months away from a permit) daughter's idea of her first dream car:



I don't know where she gets it, but something about that makes me proud to be her dad.
