Overload of the Brain

My dad and I went to a thing called a "Rock N' Roll Pony Show". It was very cool. They had ALL mustangs. From 1964 and a half Mustangs to the present. They were all cool. It was a nice father and son type thing to do. They had hot dogs and drinks and raffels for the kids. Dad entered to win a 1965 White convertible Mustang. It is cool looking, but he won't find out if he wins until April 19th. We had a good time. We talked cars and he taught me about Model A's. It was Ford and there were a couple of Model A's there. Very interesting the way that they work. We stayed there about 3 hours.

About a week later my dad and I went on a road trip to Oracle, AZ. Nothing major, just a road trip. Dad wanted to go get one of his cars registered in a small town so that he wouldn't have to get emissions on it. We had a good time. Stopped at a diner for lunch on the way there, and then at the bar in the diner on the way back. Dad was driving, so I had a beer. He did not drink. We had fun.

Now I am getting ready to go back to work. My days off were Monday and Tuesday, but now they are going to give me Saturday and Sunday off. That will be way cool.

Oh I went to my cousin Lee Ree's memorial and saw some of my family. That was nice. We exchanged numbers and all. Don't know if anyone will really call anyone. It was an ok ceremony. I just thought that it was too preachy, but maybe that's how Lee Ree would've wanted it.

If you didn't know me and I were to tell you that I...........was working for a dealership once and a guy came up on a bicycle and had a backpack full of cash and wanted to buy a corvette, and that that man was Alice Cooper, would you believe me. Or if I said that I had later went to test drive a car and then ended up doing donuts and power slides so much so that I scared the dealer and as soon as he got out of the car he quit the dealership. Or that I own an MP5 that only military or police have, but I was allowed to buy it for 35,000 dollars because I have a special license. I would think that you would call bullshit on it all. Well the fact is that there's a guy that works for me that has told me all of these stories. I am not rude enough to call bullshit, but I am tempted. I don't know what makes someone lie about everything. The weird thing is.......what if he's telling the truth.

Last but not least. I will be in my new place on May 1st. I can't wait. I am so tired of this place. The constant Chinese makes me feel like I am in Disneyland. All that's missing is her goddamn camera. The little baby Soon Ye cries and Mei tells her to stop that, be quiet, or whatever else you would never say to a baby. They say you need to learn to crawl before you can walk. I've always heard that, and it makes sense. Well not in this fucking household. Learn to sleep in a crip before you can walk in a walker. Soon Ye goes directly passed GO and gets 200 dollars? I don't fucking think so. When she is still young a bully of a boy is going to come up to her and start pushing her around. The voice inside her will tell her to run. She will start to, but just then her toes will turn in and she will fall on her face. It's a damn shame. Poor girl. Oh well, not my problem. Only 2 weeks and I will be released from the Hanoi Hilton. Thank God!

That my feelings on everything right now. That is what this whole blog was for in the first place.

Thank you all and have a wonderful day.

Wasn't meant to be

The dream is not a reality. I will not be getting the 4500 dollars it would take to get the 1973 Ford Mustang Convertible. :(

My boss told me this evening that there is no way that he is going to give me the money. He said that if I were buying a house, that's one thing, but to be buying a car that is going to be a project is something else. He said that I will have nowhere to work on it and store it. I explained to him that I would be moving to this house that has a garage in the back for me to work on the car. He still said no. That is fine with me. I do agree that I should check my finances first before I jump into something like that. It would have been cool, but I could always wait and get something that I REALLY want. Maybe an older mustang?

As for now, I am going to work on the 1961 Oldsmobile that is sitting at Rob's house right now. I will either have it towed to my new house or towed to Sheldon's shop. He is a mechanic that my dad goes to that does a good job. The car doesn't need that much done to it. Maybe even the guy with the Mustang will want to trade for the Olds. I doubt it though.

Here's what that looks like.

This one is run down. Mine is white with a nice interior. My dad traded me for a nissan and a 94 mercury for it. He says that it's really fast. This could be my first project car. Then I could work on getting some kind of muscle car.

For now though. I am extremely happy with GINA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Of course this isn't really Gina. This Mustang has a cold air intake. I do love my car.

Very fun and cool.

Thank you for reading, and have a great day.

Can't get it out of my head!!

No not the constant Chinese that is spoken at my house while on speakerphone with Hong Kong or to the baby, but the 1973 Ford Mustang that is sitting just outside of Chino Valley.

Man, that was such a cool car. If I could only get that money from Keith, I would be so happy. I can't explain it. I've just always wanted to work on a car and restore it. The car is in good shape as it is, and wouldn't take that much to get it going. It would be so cool.

There was half a day that I was thinking of not getting it, but then I keep thinking that I really want it.

Now I know that Kris will say that I don't have any money right now, so why would I want to owe the bosses money. Plus I will be paying 700 dollars for rent and I will paying utilities on top of that.

This is a dream that I have and I really want to make it come true. I'm thinking that I will go tomorrow and perhaps take my dad to look at the car.

Like I said, it could be so cool.
