i figure i should at least make some sort of attempt to update before this weekend…
so um, pat came down to philly friday night bringing my brand-new, shiny, spectacular new car!
not exactly
it’s an ’89 Nissan 240SX (SE)… 5spd, KA24E (yay pignose!) hatch
and it’s a total shitbox
and i fucking love it to death!
the doors don’t lock
the power steering doesn’t work
there is duct tape all over the hatch from a missing stock wing
and there is no driverside seatbelt
i took an old seatbelt from the G20 (thankgod i am a jew and save all my old/spare parts! hooray!) and ZIPTIED it to *look* as if i have a functional seatbelt so i don’t get any seatbelt tickets)
i don’t know if i should be proud or embarassed… hah.
the 240 had a flat so saturday i dropped it to be patched and took the G up to atco to meet up with bothwell for a weekend of racing
they did decently during qualifying, ran into some engine issues later that night
sunday they made it to the fin
als and lost to gardella by .08 seconds.
ugh, another 20 feet and we would have had him
but the car just really wasn’t running right at all
oh well, better luck next time
it was great getting to see steve and woody and the rest of the crew, they are such a fun group of guys 🙂
a fun conversation between me and mark while getting the car ready for a trip to the pitlanes:
mark: ainsley, have you lost weight?
me: yeah actually i have, i’m on a diet
mark: really? which one?
me: the i-can’t-afford-food diet hahaha
mark: well, you look wonderful!
actually ran into this guy i met over two years ago who drives this sick Evolution V and i didn’t expect him to remember me but he totally did and we wound up kickin it for a bit. good times. also ran into the love of my life *swoon* but that is a pipe dream and i am a groupie so i shall avoid mentioning more about this for fear of embarassment 😉
hrmm what else
got a free alignment and tire rotation on the G because the guys at firestone love me
the front (now rear) tires are so bald they’re practically slicks but i can’t afford new ones. hah.
classes this week,
leaving for atlantic city tomorrow night for a long semaias weekend
should be a lot of fun
j is gonna be there not for sema but just for fun

m la who i haven’t seen in ages will be there

so now, sleep
