Well I guess you are stupid as fuck.

It is quite literally the most amazing, funnest vehicle I have ever been in and I've owned Lamborghinis and Turbo Porsches.

The way it looks in that picture is how it looked when I bought it. That is not how it is staying. I am rebuilding it currently.

I am in the process of buying another and will be building 2 more over the winter.

You are fucking stupid. (in case you missed it earlier)


This is similar to how it will be looking soon.

we get 14 million visitors here per year.


Lots of insurance will be part of my business.

They rent for $500 per day.

DirtRoads We aren't house shopping but I was about to buy a house today.

A friend of mine told me about it. 3500ft^2, 5 acres, 1 shop, 2 barns, 2 car garage, legit clean updated interior, not in a super great area but an area i am VERY familiar with (grew up 4 miles away), asking 330k. I convinced myself that the extra 15-20m drive to work was worth it, figured out how to get the financials in order, made an appt to check it out.

On the market for about 50 days

Realtor calls to verify availability. Sumbitch went under contract this morning. I am more disappointed than I was expecting considering we aren't even house shopping

Filthy McChevy Was just shaking the last bits out of a bag of Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper chips into my mouth and some of the dust hit my right eye. I thought "this will not be good".

It did smart a bit.

rugby Got a hair up my butt this week to start back on my Buick project car. Working on one of the doors got it nice a straight. Laided down 2 nice coats of Black Base Coat. Finish up the 3rd coat and paint drips from the gun. Used the last bit of base I had and now I get to sand it all down and start again.

Got a call Monday afternoon from another customer, right before I finished up the first job, who needed my services out in Hobbs, NM. Left Mccamey and drove to Hobbs. Took a look at the rig and it ended up needing parts overnighted to me to repair. Got the parts this morning, made the repair and GTFO of there. Made it back to Lamesa, Tx and the phone rings again..... Customer in El Paso wants me out there to disassemble his rig as soon as I can. 5.5hrs later I get to their shop. From the looks of it I'm going to be here until Friday afternoon. I'm 9.5hrs away from the house and will not be home until sometime Saturday.

AND THE GIANT KICK IN THE BALLS FOR THE WEEK.....

Parts for another rig up in Wyoming just showed up at my shop from the factory in Italy. I have to load up the parts Saturday afternoon and head up to Medicine Bow, Wyoming Sunday morning so I can be on site Monday.

So, right now I'm sitting at the hotel bar getting fucked up on Long Island Ice Teas dreading my 9.5hr and then 17hr drives I have coming in the next few days.

I love my job......
Hiring because that's right up my alley

Brad Got to start one of(the boat has 2)the V-16 MTU DIESEL Engine on one of the boats to find an exhaust leak in the jet room. These things are cool. Individual cylinder heads instead of one big head. Easier to do valve cover and head gaskets when needed.
Starting engine swap to replace both engines starting tomorrow.

I will be changing it a decent amount. Some paint, wide wheels / tires / fenders.

Hoping to build one myself this winter so I can start with 2 of them next year.

They are Miata running gear / suspension mounted to new frame.

Weigh 1,500 lbs.

seems to be the jist of it, i was curious if there was a more clear line from the ATF and there seems to be not one.

so next step is to build a rather gaudy muzzle device for the sole purpose of recoil control

Company I work for imports, sells and services specialized vertical drilling equipment that is made in Italy. Think giant drill press on tracks. Our bigger units are capable of drilling 25' diameter holes up to 300ft deep. They are used in the oil fields to drill mouse/rat holes, building & bridge foundations, and a bunch of other things that require big ass holes in the ground through solid rock. First job I was at on Monday was for a huge powerline/windmill company out of Weatherford, Tx. Job yesterday was for National Oilwell Varco on a drill site, and today's job is for a company that does state/government work along the border.

I honestly do love my job. I get to go to some cool ass places to work on rigs and get paid well to do it, so I really cant complain.
