I love how silky smooth wankels are to rev.

Welp, chalked up about $214.14 worth of shit I need. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, and this isn't including the $50 head I'm buying. Might go down to OKC this weekend to fetch the head and get it checked out, and then pull the block and tear it down to get it ready for the build.
When i get a job and some money, you're going to have to help me build up a motor for my car.
I am absolutely having the worst luck ever.
I swear I hooked up everything, perfect everything, and now my whole cluster is almost dead.
And now it works, loose wire...
What are you doing on the 17th? My friend Collin is coming up from Mcalester with his C5 and it'd be cool to have a little get-together.
I still haven't gone to the DMV to get my license, otherwise i would. I also haven't gone on the highway, period. It's not that i am afraid to drive on it, i'm just afraid i am going to go on there alone without my license, and not know exactly how it works and need to ask for tips, but i won't have anyone to tell me what to do and a cop stops me for driving like a dumb ass.
Saying it just makes me feel like a huge loser now :(. I've been able to get it since October of last year. Things are hectic around here for my parents so they never have time to take me, and i haven't been persistent enough to make it their top priority(I'm sure there has been a time in the last several months, i just don't ask enough).
I still go places all of the time and drive like i would with my license (minus the freeway), i just have to sweat it out when i see a cop, and can't speed as often as i'd like. Google maps says it's a 102 mile drive to Kellyville, that would take approximately 1 hour and 41 minutes on toll roads.
Shouldn't drive without your licenses honestly. Don't know if it's like up here down there, but when you are caught driving without them, the consequences are never the same after-wise.
Well we will be meeting in Sapulpa most likely. Although if it was early enough in the day it'd be at my shop... pretty sure we'll be at my shop until like 10 though because my friend doesn't get off work for a while.
Anyways, someday you need to come down.
Who knows, maybe i'll get to the DMV before then. I went ahead and ordered a mount for my phone so i can use the gps on it if i need to, and a usb adapter for my car plug to plug it in.
All right, meet up sounds good. I'll be there too guys
Yeah, how do i get there best from central NM?
A guy is wanting to trade a custom 1991 Chevy Suburban with a lift and AT tires (maybe more stuff, I don't know) for my 1995 Mustang GT (auto with custom exhaust and cobra rims) plus my seemingly unsmoggable (custom) 1976 Dodge Ramcharger. They both need a new paint job and interiors, but run great. He says the suburban runs good too with 170xxx miles on it. What do you guys think? Straight trade? Trade with some cash? The ramchargers are kinda rare around here, but I'm too busy to try and figure out why it wont pass smog right now.
Depending on where in Oklahoma you live, I can be there in 10-16 hours I dunno what I would do there though
I could probably learn a hell of a lot about cars from you though, nobody I know has enough time to teach me about them. I can check transmission fluid and check oil and maybe change it, and change a tire but that's the extent of my car repair knowledge :\
Man, if everyone actually wanted to come to Oklahoma for a meet, I might save up and rent a local track and we can horseass around for a day.
Maybe sometime over the summer.
I'd be down, depending on whether you live in the western half or eastern half of Oklahoma
If I had tons of money, and no responsibilities, I'd totally drive cross country.
I would, but that's because I'm a Chevy fan.
And I think his Mustang is borked.
If I was going to go up a hill and wanted to change from D to 3 or 2, would I have press on the brake while doing it, or could I switch to a lower gear at any speed?
AT car by the way
It's AT so it should just do it on it's own, but I'm pretty sure you can just move the gear shifter. Just don't shift into first on the freeway or something stupid like that.
Bradley correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm pretty certain I'm not.
Any chance I get when driving that car I use 2 and 3 unless I'm on the highway, D is just so dull and boring on back-roads.
I live near the mountains, there's lots of hills so I wanted to see if switching to a lower fixed gear would help me get up hills faster; sometimes my AT is stuck between two gears and I end up slowly inching up the hill
Also, how would I get the most fun out of driving an automatic? Any techniques, tips? Driving is starting to get boring
For anyone wondering I live in Kellyville, Oklahoma. Meetup would likely be in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, or Tulsa.
Sweet, any of those cities is only a 10 hour drive and I'd only need about $150-200 for gas
I might actually set this up. It would be cool.
It'd be me, Jap, DP, Glitch, maybe Dylan... And maybe Zags too since he's close (~50 miles?).
Would be cooler if some of the more active members came too.
Who would be down for a meetup in... say, July? August?
Give a day for everyone to arrive, next day to do crap and another day to fix the crap that we broke the day before.
