Took my wheels in to get new tires put on. Cracked wheel. Great. Plus I just booked another vegas trip. Money is tight we will see if this still happens. Neon won't be there for sure now.

I'm alright. Fixed some things on my car and some other shit decided to break a couple of days later. And my gas bill was high as shit! Idk why lol. I'm going to try my hardest to get it all fixed and squared away before the meet. I really need this "vacation" lol.

Yea coming up fast! I doubt I'll put the summer wheels on the 2gn though. I still have 10 inches of snow in the yard and the driveway is a muddy mess.

Just saw this thread and damn I wish it was another weekend! I'm going to Vegas the weekend after this, so spending the cash on a tank of gas for this trip just isn't happening.

Perhaps you guys can push it a few weeks and see the awesome Avenger? lol

I'm thinking positive it's just this weather is driving me nuts! The 2gn comes inside tomorrow for oil change, tune up, motor mounts, sway bar links and bushings, vacumming, window cleaning, etc etc etc! Need to think about headlights for the 2gn, fogged over bad just in a month!

There shouldn't be any salt around here, most of the snow has melted near all the roads.

My yard is a different story but it's receding!

Welp, guess it wasn't meant for me to make this trip anyway...

It's hard getting time off from ONE job but, TWO...is nearly impossible and this last month proved it.

One manager went on vacation and the stand-in scheduled me both Friday AND Saturday.

Manager at the other job waited until this past Friday to begin to search for someone to cover for me so... I basically got screwed out of this completely.

Sucks ass but... I'll be making money. Need to do some more repairs on the car anyway :(

After being off work last week with no pay because my wife had a baby on the 23rd, I won't be able to make the trip. Gotta work to make some of that money back, plus I don't want to leave her alone all day like that with a newborn plus our older sons
