wow...I don`t understand how people do that. When I drive 500mls, I`m a trainwreck for the next 2 days. The roads here are really crowded ,which doesnt help...

Imagine that distance in a minivan with 1 dog and 3 wifes....

Girlfriend just spent 3 weeks travelling around NZ, she commented on how narrow the roads are in many areas and how they're up and down and winding. I think 500 miles in your area and 500 miles in most areas of North America are two very different animals

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Past few weeks.

Decided against this huge ford 5.4 dohc engine. Too many complications with how wide the dang thing is.



The new choice. Toyota 2JZ. I originally had this engine on my mind but went with the ford for some reason

You can see how much I had had to set back the firewall for the ford in this pic



Tacked most of the factory firewall back in minus a small hump on the drivers side for intake manifold clearance
