So I have been wanting something to build as a track car.

Be think about saving up for a S14 240sx. Really familiar with these cars and that body style is my favorite.

Along with making a kick ass home made race car. I would continue to build the GT into a fun DD.

Thoughts?

Pretty sure I picked a terrible topic for my english paper. I can't find anything about it aside for a few quotes that mean nothing without the facts I need.

Yeah I still can't tell very well, but I'd just say try to helicoil it if possible.

One of the things I've wanted to do so badly since I was wandering in this one junkyard was slap a modular motor in a 240. They had dozens of mod motors and 240 shells there and it just seemed to click.

Yeah I was thinking 4V for its build.

Just seems like a good match. Plus everyone and there mother has done the others; Ls blah blah, RB, 2JZ, even 1UZ comes up every once and awhile.

I've been throwing around the idea of spending my money on another car instead of my current one. I really want a 90's Miata. Gut it to nothing and make it a dedicated autocross car.

Should be pretty cheap and fun

Ended up changing it to how the media affected the UNited States' involvement in Vietnam and it was cake. So I'm happy.

History classes were my favorite

If you plan on doing a plug change, I have a full set of E3 plugs that haven't been unpackaged. I don't ever plan on using them.

Oh god. E3 plugs are p00p.I used to work at a parts store, and they told the down syndrome kid (who thought he knew about cars and thought he was a mechanic) to sell e3 plugs...So he'd be standing there, telling people how great he thought the e3 plugs were and trying to sell them to everyone (even though he thinks the Bosch +4 Platinum plugs are the best plugs in the world, and they're the only plugs he'd ever consider running in his "fast and manly" '91 Celica ST 1.6L or close to that. Had a crappy hackjob magnaflow exhaust and a cheap intake that had a foam block for an air filter, which he swore up and down was cotton...) while I'm left sitting there just shaking my head in shame that I had to work with that moronic little tool.

Well, I guess I won't be getting the front anytime soon...

I hate people who try to sell you something then don't respond when you try to buy it.
Like WTF?!

So really.... what is the point of me having to be in class at 8am to do online work? I basically have to go to school to take an online class. I don't understand. And it's only an hour long. -_-

May as well have been. Dyslexic as hell (Instead of giving out brake pad part number MKD 741, for example, he'd give them MKD 714. Almost without fail, if someone brought something back and it was a screw up like that, we'd just automatically assume it was him. Sure enough, whenever we'd check, it was. He once lost the company about $400...quoted a commercial customer for a part for $300, guy talks to HIS customer and gives a quote based on that price, and gets the job. So he comes back in to buy the part to do the job? Oh wait, retard kid fucked up, the correct price for the correct part was over $700. Guy can't change his quote, his customer will be like WTF I'm getting ripped off and he'll lose the job. I took over, talked to corporate and explained it all out, and got corporate to authorize taking the loss and giving the guy the part for the price he was originally quoted). Was bowlegged or something, couldn't even walk straight. Had freakin' bottlecap glasses. Looked, sounded, acted, and just generally reeked of special ed. Even customers who didn't know all that would ask me what the deal was with the kid. He even went to school to be a mechanic, yet he couldn't work on cars worth a damn and didn't know shit. God forbid he went out to do a battery installation on a GM, he had trouble getting the side post bolts to thread into the battery. I don't know how he sleeps at night, calling himself a mechanic even though he has trouble getting threads started when trying to get a bolt in. I'm not kidding or making any of this up either, he'd usually end up coming in and getting me to come out and help him with it.

The real bitch of it is, I'm less than a year older than him, was a WAY better salesman than him (or anyone else in the store, for that matter. My sales figures would often double anyone elses, including the guys that had wasted away 15 years of their life there), knew WAY more about cars then anyone else, knew the products, knew how to actually DO things, knew where EVERYTHING was in the store or on customers cars, and my customer service skills are way better.

Once had a lady come in, was a single mother of 3, a teacher, so you know she made barely enough money to support even just herself. She comes in, and asks me how hard it is to do wheel bearings on her toyota sienna minivan. I give her a look and say "Well, I'm not gonna lie, they're kindof a bitch, if you've never done it before. Especially if you don't have the right tools." So she says "Ok, I'll be back in a little bit." I go out in the parking lot to help someone else about 10min later, and find her out there with her van up on a scissorjack and with the wheel off. She was actually trying to do the wheel bearings herself, without the right tools or knowledge of how to even do brake pads. To this day, I'm still impressed by that. She had balls. Oh, and did I mention that she still had her kids in the car up on a scissorjack? So, I go in and talk to my manager (who was a crotchety old gay (literally. He was openly gay.) with a lisp who nobody liked) and got him to give me permission to go out and help. So I go out, and I got her through it. Rotors came off (but not until the axle nut came off, at which point the scissorjack collapsed from pulling on the nut to loosen it, which was around 300ft-lbs, nosediving her minivan into the pavement and dropping it on the rotor. Obviously the first thing I did was have her get the kids out of the car, or that could have been a bad situation. I check everything out, decide nothing else was damaged, and that we were ok to continue. I go inside and found a small bottle jack on the shelf that had been opened and returned, and go to take it out to get her van up off the ground, at which point the crochety old puerto rican guy started yelling and giving me shit, saying that I was stealing, blahblahblah. Got managers approval to do whatever I had to do to help her, so whatever. Took it out and got the van back up off of the pavement, and all was well, we were good to continue.) So, I showed her how to press a bearing in with a big c-clamp, blahblahblah, got everything back together, and sent her on her way a VERY happy and satisfied customer. I also ended up diagnosing problems, and occasionally doing quick installs. People come in crying that it's gonna cost them hundreds to get a new alternator or whatever installed, I go out and see that it's an easy 5min job and if we weren't busy, I'd often take a little bit of time to go out and throw on a belt, alternator, etc. Did headlights and brake lights on a daily basis, the occasional fuel filter, ran a new wire from the battery to the starter, once installed a new starter for someone, a few thermostats, spark plugs and wires, and a water pump on an '07 6.0L GTO. Helped and taught people how to do things whenever possible. If you find anyone at a parts store who'll do all that, let me know. I'll personally go out and shake their hand.

Anyway, all this in mind, this retarded kid got paid a decent amount more than me, and was promoted. The little shit technically ended up being my boss. What kind of bullshit is that?

Sorry for the long ass post, I guess I went on a little bit of a rant there LOL

When I was in auto tech school we had a guy like that. We were in alignment class, aligning our own cars and he brings his car in and drains the transmission fluid.. Says he's gonna rebuild the trans(none of us new how to do this yet). After sometime he realises that this is not correct behavior and goes to drive the car out and couldnt figure out why the car wouldnt move(no trans fluid). He was revving the hell out of trying to get it to move generally disturbing the whole shop. One of the instructers bitched him out and he ran away crying. Poor bastard.
