i don't feel bad for complaining about a neighbor that had their inoperable old mercedes c class parked in the street for over about 2 years without being moved. vehicle had body damage all over it. Finally got moved to their driveway. Don't understand why people have cars that just sit and are not being used or worked on in public street.

I forgot to buy a ticket. only time i usually gamble is when the mega millions or the powerball gets to an insane number like they have recently. I bet the IRS will be happy to collect over $700 million from the winner!

Sorry, I won nothing. But I wasn't expecting to win anything so nothing lost other than my $3.00 "investment".

I attended the Indy Airstrip Attack at the Marion, IN airport today. My mechanic topped 167 MPH in his Stage 3 SRT-4 before losing his tranny.

Ah, I stumbled across that video the other day. Chris Ingle right?

Back is still messed up. Been 3 months. Even PT is barely helping. I'm really worried about it at this point.

I didn't post about it here, but some of my dogs got into a fight, and they almost took out my boy dog Starchy. The night he got hurt, the doctor's office told me he has to eat, drink water, and pee by noon or else he'd have to come back into the office. 9AM he ate a little canned chicken, 10AM nothing happened, 11AM he started drinking some water, and I'm sitting there next to him sobbing like Anchorman in the phonebooth. He's doing a lot better now, but I really thought we were going to lose him a couple times. His main wound had some stiches, and one day the stitches pulled out...but it was actually a lot worse. His skin was dying off, and he had an infection underneath. Another trip the the Vet ER, more stuff done...I'll spare the rest of the details but it's rough looking. My wife is being a real life super hero and super mom to him right now. He's on a lot of antibiotics and a little pain medication until he's healed up, but after a few visits to the vet ER, they said he's looking good and we only have to come back if something changes or if we need more medication.

So far, I think I've spent a little over 4 times what I paid for my white car on him. But the little turd maker is worth it. I am, however, going to have to re-home some of the other slightly more irritable boy dogs we have. It's sad, but I don't want anything like this to happen again.

Hopefully re-homing them works out. It's never easy though. It certainly doesn't take long for vet bills to escalate. Hopefully both of you get better.

Thanks man. I know it won’t be easy, but it’s just something I’ve gotta do to keep them safe.

Had another visit with PT today and my workmans comp doctor. They think it’s not my back muscle, but more so my SI joint in my hip/pelvis. They’re going to shoot the joint with cortisone and see if it helps.

I’ve been through some major pain events in my life, dislocating my shoulder a few times, gout flare ups so bad I couldn’t walk, an… elective surgery where the Novocain didn’t start to work until they were finishing up. Those were solid pain scale 10 events. Hurting my back had me at a 7. It’s been resting at a 3/4 since about June and it hasn’t got much better.

Back in March Clara got really sick, and I ended up having to carry her from the house to the truck in the driveway, and then to the doctors office and all around. She weighs right around 100 pounds. I can’t pick up 25 pounds right now without it bothering me. I just miss picking her up and making her feel small.

I've been going to PT twice a week and doing lots of exercises but it's just not relenting.

Have you had an MRI?

Or are you jumping through the insurance hoops to get one?

Hope your back feels better. Back pains are the worse. I had them couple of years ago and it was not fun. I remember being in bed for almost a week, not able to sit up.

Playing along with the process of workman's comp. The doctor I saw last thinks it's my SI joint, so I'm going to have to get an injection in my hip first to see if there's any improvement there before they really want to do an MRI. If the injection doesn't help, then it's probably something in my back like a torn/scarred muscle at this point or a pinched nerve. I'm just so annoyed right now. The PT guys keep asking me how I'm feeling, if it's any better, and I keep saying I don't feel a lot better than when I started doing PT. I know it's frustrating for them, but I just feel pretty consistently bad.

In my wife's case, after wasting 6 months of insurance requirements, she finally got an MRI.

Her doctor just listed the normal old age degenerative stuff as the source of the pain and growing weakness in her legs. She sent her to a pain management doctor.

First visit he looked at the MRI, and told her she had a 1" tumor on her spinal cord. He sent her to a neurologist, and he immediately sent her to surgery.

She now has no pain or weakness. The neurologist said if she had went much longer, she would have never regained the control of her muscles.

What I don't get is why her primary doctor didn't mention the tumor. It was clearly marked on the MRI. If my wife would have just said screw it out of frustration, she would have been paralyzed from the waist down.

Some fucking doctors are idiots.

You can get MRIs without contrast. You don't need a prescription. Since there are no drugs being injected....

The sad part is, all the stuff they were trying to avoid and MRI cost three times as much as the MRI. And we wonder why insurance rates are through the roof.

Hope you start getting some relief

The amount of pressure you need to put on some doctors to do their job is obscene.

Not much to update on, I'm surviving though. Been driving the wagon since it's comfier for my back, but going from 40MPG using regular gas to 26MPG using premium is quite the difference on the wallet.

It is a lot of fun though.

I did start the build of a guitar hanger behind my headboard in my bedroom. I took a plank my wife painted and screwed it to the wall, and then screwed some "tool holder" hooks into it. Frees up a lot of floor space, but I definitely didn't measure so it's not very even, and the screws aren't spaced evenly. It doesn't matter to me much though I'm happy they're up.

Got a set of APC "carbon fiber" tail lights from Sgt. Craig over the weekend. He works for Roush and does traveling, and happens to be in York for a few weeks. I hung out with him for a few hours yesterday and talked about old times and neon stuff.

I plan on doing something pretty weird with the APC tail lights and my 99 neon. Very ricery, but different than what a lot of people have, or would do.

Ooof, I bet that is a wallet hit. But, the comfort has to be worth it.

Very cool. Wasn't he the one aiming at the N/A 2.4 SOHC or 200HP N/A 2.6 SOHC or something like that. Then said screw it and turbo'd it.

When I traveled, it was definitely neat to see some people that I'd never otherwise meet. Handful of people from IL, WI, OH.

Ah, you're thinking of SGT BRAD from here, this is Craig Martinelli from .org. He worked for Hahn for a while and raced in Nopi events back in the early 2000's. I think last year or the year before last he managed to re buy his first neon that he bought brand new and sold off 20 years before.

Just ran the numbers, and it's costing me about $60 more a week to drive the wagon to work than the 99 would cost...

So I'm going to yank a spindle off the 98 ACR this weekend and slap it on the 99 to get it back on the road. Might look into swapping a different set of wheels I have laying around onto it as well. My back is still really killing me, but I might try to get some of the garage and the driveway picked up so I can shove the NYG in there.

I bought a Siegler Oil Stove a few years ago, but never got around to getting a stove pipe or hooking it up in my garage (I'd need to cut a hole in either the wall or the roof to run the stove pipe correctly), I just used a kerosene torpedo heater I had laying around and it ran pretty okay, but I didn't really like how it smelled so I'd limit how long I ran it for. I think I'm going to buy some cheap stove pipe and mess with that oil stove next week and see if I can get it working. The "carburetor" setup seems really simple. It has a float that controls flow, and then a burn pot inside. I also really want to convert it to using waste oil which I've seen done, but you have to bypass the carburetor for that. It would be nice to have in the garage for heat and it wouldn't make the inside of the garage stink. It also has a fan on the back that blows air around the heat chamber and out the bottom to disburse it. Even when i used the torpedo heater, I'd use a box fan on my rafters to blow some heat "down" from the ceiling since heat rises. If it was 30ish outside, I could get the garage to 50 or so, and I'd be able to work comfortably like that for a while.

I have a couple infrared tube heaters for my garage, but they ding the electric bill if I use them much. I have entertained the idea of an outside wood burner with water jackets and plumbing pipes through the wall to a radiator. At least I wont have to cut any flue pipes through the concrete block or the new roof that way.

I would have to run antifreeze in it though, as I wouldn't keep a fire going all winter to keep it from freezing.

There is zero insulation on the walls or in the ceiling. I would at least have to put some in the ceiling. The garage is built into the hill for about 65% of the back and sides, so that helps a bit. The downside is the wall that is the most exposed is the one that faces the winter winds.

The neighbor across the road has an outside wood burner that he must use to heat his water also, because he has a fire in it year round. Too big of a hassle for me, just to not use a gas or electric hot water heater.

I'd had the idea of using a radiator either like an old school cast iron radiator or even a car radiator with a fan. I'd also had a thought to try to find a mobile home boiler setup to rig into my house, but that's a future me idea.

I've been working on my neon a little bit here and there in the evening...it's killing me pretty bad. I've pulled knuckles off a neon in like 15-20 minutes in the past, and it's taking me 30 minutes to an hour now. I hate feeling like this.

I wrote house there, but meant garage. I already have a fuel oil boiler in my house. It's on a 2 zone system, downstairs and upstairs. I'd like to make a 3rd zone so I could have a radiator for my wife to work next to, so we didn't have to run the whole floor for heat just a smaller area.

Oh lord lol. Which one is more strict? Can you default to MIL spec and have it pass SAE spec?

Finished the 99 on Wednesday night, but didn't feel like doing a test drive. Last night I took it for a spin with Clara to 5 Below and had her help me film some. Drove it to work today.

Don't know what it is, I've driven some decent cars, I've driven some really nice cars...but I feel the most "at home" in a 1gn neon. It just feels the most normal to me. I honestly wish I could explain it. Maybe it's my brain "neurodivergences" or maybe it's just the familiarity. But even my 2gn's don't feel this relaxing and normal to me.

I don't think one is more strict than the other. A lot of people still reference the MIL spec, but the SAE spec is an evolution of the spec. The MIL spec is defunct, but so is the MIL spec that I ask for regular anodizing, but people still use it. There's an SAE spec for regular anodizing that it seems more people don't reference because they're too familiar with MIL-8625.

I'm building information to present to our customer for making a change because we're currently single sourced and it's been a problem lately. I can't make the decision, they have to, but they're open to it.

And maybe you're onto something! I got my first 1gn in 06, a year and some change into my ownership of my 05SXT. I liked it better than my 05 from the start, even though it needed a lot of work at the time. Wish I hadn't sold it, and bought it back, and sold it again.

As far as music goes lol. I'd say I've found some of my favorite music recently. I'm always trying to find something new to take my favorite spot. I have some "classics" I guess you'd say I put on time to time, I even have a playlist of "dating music" that I made for Christy and I's anniversary trip a few years ago, which has a soft cutoff of around 08 when we got married, but I'm always trying to find new stuff. I don't really think there's one true golden era of music like a lot of weird elitists do.

Then again, I know that I'm really fucking weird lmao.

Entirely unrelated: I've been itching for a while lately to have a big body RWD carbureted car. Something I can fix with a rock and a screwdriver and find parts for behind a dumpster. I know something GM would fit the bill, but I really want a 70's Chrysler or Dodge. Swap in an 8.8" rear so I can get easy access rear disc brakes, an A518 or a 47RH with a lockup converter so it doesn't suck on the highway and I'd be golden. Or if I find something with a 3 speed column shifted manual might scratch the itch.

Sorry, I won nothing. But I wasn't expecting to win anything so nothing lost other than my $3.00 "investment".
That's actually just you paying unnecessary taxes :lol:

Uncle Sam thanks you for the $3 hahaha
