time for a weekend update… and caution, it’s gonna be BIG.
friday: started the day off by working a relatively short day (got in late, left early) and the weather was *gorgeous* so i had a great ride to/from.
got home, threw some stuff in a bag, and jetted up to jersey. i was about 5 miles from damien’s shop when he calls and says for me to hurry up b/c he is leaving and that i should just meet him at his house (down the road from the shop) so i was like okay i’ll just meet you there. well i’m merging onto 514 from us1 and he comes flying up behind me in his talon haha i almost merged right into him, so i downshifted, ripped past him, and gave him the finger out the window 😀 hahah. i was like ‘told you i was close, you shoulda waited for me.’
anyway. so we are driving up through jersey, and i pass this car, and all of a sudden damien starts yelling for me to slow down i’m like wtf why he’s like dude the guy in the car you just passed, his keys were in the door! (yes, his keys were still in the door lo
ck, hanging there, dangling, while driving. hahaha)a nd i’m like wtf no way so i slow down and yep, the keys were hangin there omg seriously, funniest thing ever. so i start honking and shit trying to get the guys attention and damien is screaming out the window at him but the guy is in his car freaking out looking all over for his keys (keep in mind we’re both doing like 80mph at the time) and panicing and finally he looks over and damien yells that his keys are in the door and the guy had this look on his face like he was the biggest loser in the world but seriously, it was SO funny, we were dying of laughter.
so. we get to the revred/ifx diner (sage is under renovation so we went to alex’s father’s diner) about an hour early. so this guy nick who is a friend of damiens had a ford festiva. we packed 7 people in a ford festiva with two (damien and phil) in the hatch. anyone who’s ever seen a festiva knows that the hatch is practically nonexistant. so we’re driving around howard beach with 7 people in the festiva, blasting spanish music, and bouncing up and down inside the car so the poor thing looked like it was practically on hydraulics. but oh man it was great. and it was doing burnouts b/c there were so many people in the back that the front tires couldn’t get traction we were acting like an ebrake. so we’re driving and laughing so hard that i was physically in pain and crying, and t
hat outkast song ‘heyya’ comes on and i’m like “shake it like a ford festiva!!!” cause we were trying to tip it over in the parkinglot before we went cruising. those cars are fun they are like big matchbox cars haha.
by the time we got done ‘cruising’ some more people had showed up at the diner, alex brought his rc s15 and was drifting it around the parking lot. it was purdy. he tried to drift around me and stan like we were jdm umbrella girls and it ran into my foot. ouch.
we had a ton of people show up for dinner it was a lot of fun. at one point i went outside to smoke a butt with some friends and we found a busted apc hubcap spinner on the curb so we picked it up and fixed it so it would spin again and gave it to nick (kid with the festiva) and he tied it to his hoodie strings and wore it like it was a piece of bling. funniest shit ever.
after dinner a bunch of guys from SR20DEep showed up… tons of b13s with dets and gtirs. it was awesome 😀
saturday: woke up around noon or so, went and got patrick, and met hamid at walter’s shop over in uniondale or something. installed the JIC carbonfiber front strut tower bar and the Carbing rear strut tower bar. they made such a different it is unbelievable. chassis flex is pretty much nonexistant, body roll is reduced, and turnin/cornering/general feel is 10x better. i am happy 😀
after the install hamid and pat and me we
nt to ihop. ate massively disgusting amounts of food. hamid and patrick ate spoonfulls of butter and drank maple syrup. it was entertaining to say the very least.
then we drove up to fizz and i ordered my wheels!!! silver 16″x7″ Nismo LM GT4s!!! they’ll be here sometime in april (i hope) yaaaay
went out racing later that night, too many cops to get any good action though. but it’s still fun driving around and chillin with everyone. so of course later my fatass gets hungry again and we go to mcdonalds and they gave us the wrong order so we got a TON more food than we shoulda and i was just like goddamn this weekend is kicking ass!
driving home (hamid let me drive his DET G20 b/c he was tired, haha you lazy boy) and this drunk driver almost ran me off the road. it sucked. but thankfully we had boost and were able to get past him real quick. i made hamid call it in to the police b/c the guy was all over the road it was scary as shit and i was worried he was going to hurt someone…
what’s weird is i got a phonecall from rob saturday night. he was mad at me that i haven’t called him and that i didn’t pick him up to come to an ifx meet (i didn’t think he really wanted to) and he was all angry and telling me i should come to nyc and party with him. rob is VERY rich. very VERY rich. partying with him is gonna be *fun*. but what’s weird is that in the whole year we were togethe
r, he never once invited me to come out with him and his friends. it was a straight up booty-call relationship with us. so i was stunned when he kept telling me to come to nyc and i was like ‘goddamn rob are you drunk?’ and he’s like “no but i miss you like crazy you’re an awesome girl i want to hang out with you and i want you to come out with me and my friends.” so yeah needless to say i was a little confused.
sunday: drove back to philly. on my way down i was on the belt pkwy and i see the hottest M5 ever in my rearview. white, lowered, widebody kit, rims. it was absolutely incredible. next thing i know, the kid has pulled up next to me (young asian guy) and motions to lower my window so i do and he’s like “hey i’ve seen your car online! it’s awesome!” and i’m like wow thaks! your m5 is pretty awesome too 😉 so he told me to go check ebay b/c he is selling a red g20 that he owns tooso i could get his email and we could talk… but i couldn’t find it. oh well 😦
then i’m driving through jersey and a rock hits my windshield and puts a nice big fucking crack in it (about 6 inches) which SUCKED but it’s all good b/c i have glass insurance and they will replace it for me (i hope) so i will have a nice new windshield free of those obnoxious little tiny chips. yaay.
so damien told me to call him when i was near his house in jersey… but i called and
he didn’t answer. about an hour later he calls me back and is like sorry bout that i was outside working on the car, where are you? but by then i was about 35 miles past his house and if i had turned around it woulda put me 70 miles outta my way so i just kept driving. damn. i woulda loved to chill with him… i realllly like him and it sucks so much b/c i honestly don’t think i have a snowball’s chance in hell. oh well.
and that is my weekend update. i will post pics of the rims, stbs, and windshield crack later.
