fantastic work with the green screen.. so where's the other alero.. on the whole lug nuts breaking thing. the only car i ever had them break on was my first car where i had midas do some crap to the car and swap tires over because where i lived at the time was kinda touchy about crap like that and well i had crap for tools back then..

Yeah, just depends how much you care I guess. Lol it was alot of work/money to get her back up and running. And feels good to drive it again after all i did to it over the winter.

Next year im gonna have to replace some rear end components. (Suspension) the front end is prettt much all new now. New lower control arms, new end links, bushings, and all that fun stuff. Rear is still in touched so thats next winters project. Also just replaced rear wheel bearings over the weekend. Its almost like a new car


So ill probably replace all lateral arms and end links in the rear next winter.

Like I said, they are never around to actually stop any crimes, and they don't want to spend the money/man power to solve any crimes, so.... you are better off protecting your own sh!t. That's why I say buy a gun, get an alarm system, put up security cameras. And if politicians/police complain about people with handguns, tell them to fock off because they aren't doing anything to protect us or our property.

In a perfect world would I love to be able to take the time to **** over someone that threw something at someone's car? Sure! But guess what, this isn't a perfect world and **** isn't that simplistic. You can hate law enforcement all you want but many officers share your sentiment, as do I. I want every law abiding citizen to be able to protect their **** and if I am around to do the same, I will. We're short 3,000 officers right now and with the retirement/hiring going the way it is, we're going to be shorter each day. Nowadays, all the politicians want to do more with less, so it isn't going to get any better.

In short, this isn't police officers choosing not to help people out because they don't want to. If you think that, you just have a ****ty attitude and anything I say will not change your mind.

Sucks about the beer bottle. People suck.

As for Sleepy's new wheels, I'm quite underwhelmed. Rather generic wheel choice.

Truer words were never spoken. This is why it's such a long time between sets of wheels for me. I can never find anything I like that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, or weigh two tons. Anything light weight and good looking is custom and expensive.

I'm not into oversize rims, but I like this set of rims better than the first set. Just my taste and opinion.

Exactly. Idk why companies dont make nice sets for a 115, ive seen many 110, and 120 wheels i really liked and would dig up more info to see if available in 115, and of course. Pretty much all patterns but 115



We will see guys

Wait im confused. Didn't you just buy a set of bronze wheels? What gives? I still have the same set for 10+ years. Only reason im going to replace mine is because the rims are refusing to hold air very well and i'd like to get a lighter set.

Look back into earlier discussion. To make things short and sweet....

Bronze wheels were 5x114.3 pattern and i kept breaking lug studs with them, so they had to go. Not worth the safety hazard.
