    Interesting, or stereotypical? Males... Internet... Pilots... yeah, it was headed there eventually, all along.

    Spike, I don't think he is going to keep posting! That was just a one time deal I'm pretty sure.

    Not sure what more you need to know? Snowmobiles in the back country, ice fishing, dogs (Springers), duck / goose hunting (with shotguns), 4-wheel-ing, dirt bikes, saltwater reef tanks (fish), band (he's the sound guy), rebuilding muscle cars, home improvement - we painted the house, he installed the flooring, I sledgehammered the concrete, that sort of thing . . .

    Geez. Wax is sooooo 1992. Lasers are the new wax. Though they hurt a lot more than you'd think.

    Translation, Get out of my virtual hangar! And no cyber stalking! :no::nono:

    Bad way to re-start a relationship. Not doing what he is told. Been married for 19 years, I always do what I am told. Especially when she tells me to go fly! :yesnod:

    LOL he can come back if he wants to. It is a public internet forum for pilots. I'm just saying you don't see a ton of non-pilots posting on here.

    I was going to say that it's the Internet, so you never know, but I just looked at the top posters, and I've personally met all but two of those with 10,000 posts or more, and have flown with many of them or seen them fly, too. But anyone with an interest in aviation is quite welcome, whether they're a pilot or not.

    The first picture titled 2005 looks photoshopped. I am no expert but most of the pic in crystal clear, the blades of grass, the house in the background, the people sitting around, even the girl who is just behind Kim and BF is clear and the image is well defined. Those two in the forefront are fuzzy and to my untrained eye they look like that was photoshopped into an existing pic.... Why,,:dunno::dunno::dunno: Who knows... And I have been wrong before... Any photo experts out there care to comment ?

    I see it all the time: my autofocus camera chooses the wrong thing to focus on.

    It's not likely to be photoshopped.

    All together now: I believe in Kim. I believe in Kim. I believe in Kim.:wink2:

    That can't be true, there was a wax based hair removal task in last year's "Amazing Race". One guy with tons of chest hair looked like he was in so much pain he almost passed out.

    The 1967 Camaro !

    This is before the car was finished (it is still always an ongoing project) at the old house - we shared the lease and rented the house until he bought his first house and got a mortgage:

    Dude, chill out. Drunk guy taking our photo, camera in auto focus mode, it decided to focus on the other stuff and not us. Why would I photoshop us into a wedding as guests?

    Definitely nice, I guess the radiator hose is part of the "ongoing". It's kinda tacky with the braided heater core hoses. What makes you think it's an SS though?

    No. He painted some parts (black) but that paint job was done by the professionals. Some things are worth the money and he got a great deal through a friend of the family.

    The car stays in the garage, under a special car cover, and only goes out on special days. It is not a daily driver.

    Funny thing is he has NEVER let anyone drive it - heck I don't even know if his Dad has driven it . . . and one day, not only did he let me drive it, but I drove it ALONE back to the house from another town! I put it in a very low gear like he taught me, to make the most awesome noises possible, rolled down my window, and cruised through downtown Healdsburg on the main street. You should have SEEN the confused looks on the people's faces (why is a GIRL driving that car and why is there no man in the car with her). It was priceless!!!

    See, if you had been in Saudi Arabia, you'd have likely been stoned. As it was, being in Cali and all, I would just assume everyone else was.

    Ahh, at first glance on the iPhone screen I just went with the paint job. The racing stripes were one of the factory SS schemes, I think. I didn't look closely enough.

    Stepdad had the 67 SS convertible Indy pace car special edition in red/white and a 69 Chevelle SS hard top in metallic light blue.

    Both were absolutely gorgeous machines. They were both holy-crap-this-is-awesome fast and tight. Big V8s. Automatic transmissions that didn't have sloppy mom and the kids torque management done by a computer. Way fun. Never got to drive them, sadly.

    Mom had a Fiat Spider convertible. That thing was fun but a maintenance pig. Carb was always jacked up. Repainted from fire engine green to gun-metal grey metallic later in it's life, it looked wicked. It was gone before I was driving legally but mom had let me move it around and what-not. Rode in it a lot as a teen after it was sold to a family friend. Top down, fun little cruiser.

    http://www.esportscarparts.com/Fiat/SpiderHistory.htm

    She then got a company car. (Remember those? Like for normal folk?)

    '84 Chevy Citation II with the 4.0L V6 stuffed in it sideways. Needed a lift to even try to get to the rear spark plugs.

    That piece of crap ran 300,000+ miles and was still running when the third family member to own it sold it off for good.

    She bought it from the company for next to nothing early-on, since they rotated the fleet quite quickly.

    We then all drove it to near-death. Or so we thought. It kept running. Freaky zombie car.

    I took it off-roading once as a teen just trying to kill it, with it's whopping 4" of ground clearance. It wouldn't die. :rofl: We tried.

    I also ran it into a pillar in a parking garage with mom in the passenger seat during my learner's permit days. Ahh, the things our parents do to teach us how to drive. Haha!

    Cars. Fun stuff.

    My '68 Chevy Van with three on the tree, the straight six, and a Holley 4 barrel carb would light up the back tires for 1/2 a block. Was fun to watch the road go by through the rust holes in the floor under my left foot. The psychedelic multi-colored paint job someone had painted on it to match his speedboat made it look like it's nickname, "The hippie mobile."

    Not being a hippie and driving it around with a shirt and tie on got plenty of funny looks. Leaving them half a block behind from the stop light in a 6000 lb van was fun too.

    I can still hear the loud drone of third gear from Chicago all the way down to the Eastern tip of Tennessee and then back to Colorado in my ears, too. God it was loud.

    And the '76 Toyota hatchback, the Geo Metro, two Ford F-150s, a Jeep Cherokee, another Jeep Cherokee, and now the Yukon.

    I was kinda car/truck crazy for a long time. The Jeeps were driven the longest of all of them.

    Stepdad also had a hard-top Thunderbird convertible in there somewhere, and a Corvair at one point. There was also a Hudson Terraplane rusted under a tarp awaiting restoration that never got done, and a real REO Speedwagon that never ran after it got towed home on a flat-bed, but it wouldn't have taken too much work. We were all just too busy to rebuild the engine. He also had a 70s rotary engined Mazda wagon or two. Also maintenance pigs, but those Wankel engines were fascinating to tinker with in the garage.

    Toys. Fun toys.
