So my girlfriend has been torturing me for the last week with the statement "I got you a lil' present". I've come to a slight stand still on my painting because my gun screwed up and I'm waiting for a new one to arrive. She decided to get me something for the car since it was getting redone. Well after a trip to DHL last night to pick it up this is the lil' present she got me. I'm sycked and I've got a new set of Yokohoma A048's in the garage for them too. I can't wait to get this back together.

Me too! She gets Midget envy even though I try to restrict my wrenching time to "after hours", like 10:00pm and later, long after she's sound asleep.

I remember a time when my old lady got me stuff like that. Then the usual happened and she gets money from me through the state every check. In the end, she didnt buy me anything; I pay for it all now.
Nice wheels Chris. I have seen those around and they really look sharp.

Nice Chris!

And they'd fit right in if you want to run vintage too.

Don't forget, that VRG is having their annual school on May15-17 at NHIS.
Since your car doesn't have flairs, it's completely vintage-legal (like mine).
After you run the school, you can run the wheel to wheel race with the rest of us later in the weekend.
~Great Event~ (https://vintageracer.tripod.com/nh-vrg-08-1.html) , great venue and, of course, lots of LBCs.

Chris,

You are a LEGEND!!!

Your Missus must still LUV you.

With most of us, I am sure, our Missuses just TOLERATE us...only just.

Live long and prosper (and enjoy the wheels.)

Sushi. I bought flowers once, now I bring home sushi. I know she's a keeper, life is good.

There was this radio commercial on during Valentine's day where that went "Every kiss begins with Kay" which was for Kay jewelers. It seemed like it was on every time the radio station took a promo break. It got pretty annoying so she changed it to "Every kiss begins with...car parts" I got her a nomex race suit for Valentine's day. Hey, it was red :devilgrin: .
