    Well, one more year is about to leave us...and a new year is about to join us....

    Let us reflect on the important event's that shocked our lives this year.



    For me, I got transfered from the hanger to the composites lab....better than getting laid off, and I like it there.
    The wife finally got the guts to go travelling with out me, all the way to Japan and back, got some sweet shit BTW...
    Got more cars, and blew up many other cars.... CRX, Supra...kaboom.
    Made more freinds, had a blast, went places, had fun.
    Had a grandfather-in-law die, but found out how great of a man he was, and I was amazed at the respect that he recieved at the various cerimonies held in his honor.
    I'm still shooting on trying to get a house or a garage, no luck yet. Another year with no car accidents, so I'm happy.
    I built up a few project's and they ran. except the MR2...


    I had a good year...not the best..but still it was a good year.


    How was your 2003 Year?

    Didn't get didly done on the Civic except collect a bunch of new parts.

    Paid off 50% of my total debt. Makes building my cars much easier on the wallet.

    Put a new motor in Smokey. It went it's first 1500 miles EVER without having to add oil. I mean EVER, too. Like in the 7 years that I've owned the car! She runs much better, too. over 20 HP more than the old motor, dyno proven.

    I got Smokey on all the same wheels for the first time in 3 years. I always had mix-matched 4 lug/5 lug on the front and rear.

    Swapped carpets in Smokey, and started updating the interior to pretty black instead of old and busted tan.

    Got a parts car for my Sentra bought. As soon as the engines are swapped out, and the car runs and drives good, I'll put the Mustang in the garage, and the Sentra will be put into daily driver mode with a big for sale sign in the window. $2500 or bust! :)

    Got a NICE apartment with the girl. 2 BR 2 bath, 2 car garage with a driveway of our own, so no more parking lot door dings! We even have a water spigot! Too bad it's turned off because of winterization. My car needs a bath BADLY. :(

    Finally made up my mind to settle down with Heather. She's a great girlfriend to me, and she has made an honest effort to make me feel more comfortable in the thought of being with her for a long long long time. I think I can handle it. ;)

    2003 was a pretty good year, I guess.

    Not too bad of a year...

    -Got a new job after being out of work for quite a while... Highest paying one ever, too. :)
    -Found a near-mint no-rust 86 CRX for doing the B18 swap instead of the 86 Civic, I'll rebuild that one for autocrossing now.

    ....that's about it, but still not bad :)
