    What the fuck have I missed?

    I've been gone a while. Probably been 3 years (at least) since I've posted here. Been through a couple of other cars, long stories, and a whole lot of life shit... But I still have the green '97 SC2. Still looking to supercharge it, still haven't installed the forged motor. Still have a shit ton of very rare parts, that still haven't made their way onto a car.

    It's been a long time. Those of you that might recognize my name, know full well I'm too lazy to dig into the evens of the intervening years. But I've missed this community, and once the GF gives me back my Saturn, I intend upon making it the monster I've always talked about.

    Alcohol brings out nostalgia for me, but it's been far too long since I've been around. Missed you fucks.

    Fucking Chris, as I live and breathe. Some of us are still here making bad decisions. Many have wised up and moved along.

    Aren't you out on the East coast?

    Yeah, still in VA. I've sorta moved on, the Saturn is now the fun car, and I daily a '17 STi, and I'm always making bad decisions. The GF is driving the Saturn temporarily, and once I get it back, it's time to MegaSquirt. She's unknowingly been guinea-pigging an internally modified stock ECU for me lol.

    Broke apart the turbo car.. sold turbo stuff, traded the shell of the car for 2x Chipotle burritos, and put the engine/trans/suspension in a 3G coupe. After a few months I bought a 2016 Honda Fit and sold the 3G cheap to someone a few hours away.

    No more car projects for me, at least for a long while.

    Fucking hell. The old guard (myself included) has all had to start adulting, huh? I'll have to peruse this place more in-depth, see where the new generation is taking it. This motorized Tupperware is almost classic. Glad to see you fucks are still around!

    Fair enough.

    I've found several new hobbies in the interim... Though I flit from one to the other, and back again like an ADHD butterfly. I've found motorcycles, machining, 3D printing, I'm building an aluminum foundry, home automation, dangerous levels of electricity, carpentry, decorating, cooking... Cars is still there, and will likely never leave (and it's likely the root of everything, to be honest...). I really, really like to make things. What I need to find is a hobby that doesn't cost me a shit-ton of money.

    Yeah Tony is a luchador right now [A good one at that!]

    What bikes do you have ? How are you liking the STI? I'm leaning towards a 370z vs. one of those.

    A Luchador?! FUCK YEAH! I used to ref roller derby with a guy who became a luchador. It's amazing.

    I've got a '12 Triumph Bonneville, with an Arrow 2-1 exhaust, and a crap ton of cosmetics mods (I built a modern-day cafe racer). And I fucking love my STi. I've always wanted one, if for no other reason than the burbles. It's powerful, quick, mean-looking, and comfort-wise, a veritable Cadillac compared to the Saturn.

    Dude, you are another name that has resurfaced. Welcome back!

    I still drive the same car, it's still SOHC.
    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    I still have Lila, but I haven't driven her since February. I mostly moved onto the C10 and recently picked up Photography. I am so deep into now, and it is no less expensive than cars unfortunately, but I can include the wife a bit more in this hobby. Win Win. Oh, and we have a little one on the way. Due in June. Pretty pumped about finally being able to take that next step.

    Shit... And here I am, looking to get a vasectomy this coming year. I turned 35 last month, and that was my deadline. Still don't want kids, and never will.

    Hell, I'm not even sure about marriage. It's been a complicated, stressful, drama-and-depression-filled few years, but I'm back with the GF that some of you have met at the Dragon (Emily), and plan to be for the rest of my years. But marriage...?

    The only guarantee I can make anymore is that I'll burn the SC2 to the ground before it leaves my possession.

    Also: Alex, your sig mentions Shane Jackson. Is that fucker still around?

    Yeah, I'm slowly accepting the fact that I'll be a proud member of that forever alone lifestyle.

    And Shane? I'm not sure what happened to him. I recall something along the lines of someone paying a mod to ban his clown ass.

    Nothing wrong with forever alone. Happy is all that matters.

    I figured Shane was long gone. I dunno... I've got mixed feelings. One one hand, I remember what a cock holster he was. On the other, I've lately been finalizing a decade-long engine build that he provided the crankshaft for.

    Fuck, that just makes me think of all the rare parts I've still got. I've got ProDarwin's prototype set of milled 1st-gen pistons on 2nd gen rods. I've got a set of Gude cams buried somewhere. Saturn history, collecting dust.

    I never left, but my only Saturn use for the past ~6 years has been as a cheap DD.

    I've gotten into even dumber cars recently like a Sentra SpecV. Ugh.

    Likewise, i still have (another) saturn. It's the first single cam i've ever owned, but i daily the thing.

    I have (abvious by my profile pic) a 1983 Datsun 280 zx that i have plans for when i get the money to work on it. Things have been slow going with the wife and 3 kids plus the project is about 10 minutes away at my brother-in-laws place. But i'm working on it.
