Maxing the 42lb injectors out on the stock motor and breaking both tires loose from a 50 roll. This thing is going to be fun at the track.

I'm going to test drive a fox body this afternoon with a forged 306. Might have another Mustang in the stable.

For those that dont know, the owner of our company (30 dealerships) was looking to cut costs where possible. Saturday lunches used to be sandwiches from a local shop and something to drink. Now its plain pizza with no toppings and no drinks.

I was a Service Advisor in one of the 4 Ford stores. My team of technicians was made up of 4 Master Techs and a UTI Trainee. 2 of my Master Techs have been out since December. One had a torn rotator cuff that he had surgery on and was to be out until April. The other slipped on the stairs of his deck on Christmas and broke a vertebrae in his back (he's 62 years old). So I have been working full steam with two techs and 1 trainee since then. The trainee recently quit to go work in his family restaurant.

The owner called the GM of my store and said, you have one advisor for two techs?? Split the two techs up in the other teams and put the advisor elsewhere or let him go.

I took an open job as the internet manager. It was a sales job. working bad hours. some 9-9 days and every saturday. and i took a huge pay cut. Since I switched positions, I put out 23 applications. came across a really good job not too far from me as a Service Advisor at a Hyundai dealership. I applied, interviewed and I start Monday.
That's awesome!

Could not have it running around all dirty so Nick and I scrubbed it down and did a quick photo shoot on it with the new stance. AKA Raceland Coilovers.
