Well, we just had our first rain of the 2011 winter season hit and we made damn well sure not to miss it. Not everyone’s cars were ready in time, including Nieko’s or Danny’s, but thankfully Danny was able to borrow his girlfriend, Christine’s, car to come out and slide with us. No videos this time, but rest assured we will have some that will destroy last year’s footage by a mile!
I’ve been away for quite some time. This was because I fell on my bike about a month and a half ago and tore the ligaments in my right arm. This meant no working on cars and no driving of an sort, which has been a complete pain in the butt. Today, I finally built up the courage to go wash my car, jump start it and get back to work….
So of the four Gram Lights I bought, only three arrived. One was indefinitely lost in the mail. Now I’m waiting to hear from the seller so we can figure out a way to get a fourth. In the meantime I tested one on the car.
Needless to say, I’m stoked.
So yesterday, my S13 got demolished by an unaware driver, and here’s the story behind it.
I was working on my S13, at home. See, one of my headlight bulbs went out so I got a super cool HID kit from Sonic Motor to replace my stock headlights. I had pulled out one of the lights and installed the ballasts and wiring conversion before the street lights came on; it was starting to get dark. So I decided to call it a day… I rounded up all of my tools and parts to throw them in the car so I could continue the next day. I went to the driver side, opened the door and came back around front to grab my stuff.
Next thing I knew, an atrocious sound of scraping and cracking metal ripped through the air followed by an ear piercing shriek. The yell was my natural reflex to the unknown threatening sound that filled the quiet neighborhood atmosphere only a millisecond after the hit. As I turned around, I saw a blue Camry grinding the living hell out of my car as it wooshed by. My lifted hood shook like crazy, but my nerves shook even more. These people had just destroyed my car. As I came around the other side to see the damage, I was horrified. The door was literally ripped from the chassis by the hinges, the fender caved in, and my sideskirt was hanging on the ground.
Needless to say, I got all of their information and they will be fixing this.
Went to a dope meet at a Boba Cafe that specializes in Crepes last night. It was packed! People were driving through the lot looking for spots while people were still rolling in! Check out their facebook page if you haven’t already : http://www.facebook.com/BobaCafeCerritos
