the correct answer to such a question is the built-in guilt-trip: "Do you honestly care to know how my life REALLY is, or are you hoping for a superficial reply like 'I am great?' or something?"

Superficial conversations are a fucking waste of time if you're not kissing your boss' ass.

a simple, it's great, really won't cut it, unless ur life is entirely flawless

I meant present moment, like thinking back on how it has been, and then thinking about present moment...how's life
gotten better, gotter worse, stuck in the middle

cause if life isn't getting better, and it usually wouldn't..but u have to start thinking, "what do I need to do today that can make me feel like life is getting better"
, cause many say don't worry life will get better but how's that going to happen if ur life is going nuts at the moment and ur not doing anything about it to make it better

being positive most the time is my key, if ur not happy, ur not doing something right...just need to find a niche that u can work on and look forward to making better and have fun with life

for me it's my truck, I love my truck, I've never been able to drive another type of vehicle successfully but once my grandmother gave me her truck for my 16th birthday, things changed, I vowed to take care of it and since then I've been learning all about it, I now know more about engines and parts, how it works, the whole inside to this truck, I fixed so many parts though it was still running very good condition...I just keeps the parts up to date, clean the engine, wash the truck for hours, performance upgrades, and the little things that make it better
so far I've turned a 1992 s10 pickup chevy ext. cab 4.3L V6 into my dream vehicle...1. I only like trucks, I got the oversize chrome K&N filter for the carburater, I replaced the alternator, water pump, radiator, sparkplugs, brakes,(as in things I've learned to do)...I got a custom bug shield, vent visors, tinted my windows, tonno cover(really saves gas), euro altezza taillights, neon lights, amp &subwoofer(without the back end of a car it really thumps), cd player, decals on the windshield, new wheels, and I'm saving up for a new exhaust, racing seats, and I'm thinking of an engine overhaul by oversizing the pistons and putting in a v8, kick ass
k I'm done here, I'm still currently working on it, just waiting for something to dry

find something that makes u happy and keeps u busy, it's like king of the hill where hank said his oasis is his lawn, and lu ann found hers to be the pool

seije - good for you.

want my car resume? ;]

own: 1965 ford mustang convertible, 2001 toyota prius, 1990 volkswagen camper, 1965 mercedes-benz 230sl, 1965 ford mustang GT k-code fastback (only for shows).

owned: 1966 mustang convertible (stolen, never came back), 1995 toyota tercel, 1973 volkswagen camper, 1979 volkswagen camper, 1965 ford mustang GT k-code fastback (stolen, came back in pieces; totalled), 1968 mercedes-benz 250 (BUCKET)

work done myself: engine and engine part rebuilds / replacements / front end work / rear axle assemblies / transmission rebuild and replacement / clutch / exhaust / intake / alternators / GENERATORS (old-schoolin it) / alarms / sound system (prius) / assloads of other stuff..

there is little as theraputic or rewarding as maintaining or upgrading vehicles you own and drive yourself. it's like.. you can always immediately see or feel the result of all your hard work. i would never take back the time i spent sweating (and bleeding; every time you work under a hood you cut yourself if you're me) for my cars. it makes them that much more fun and that much more sentimentally valuable.

it's great to hear you're learning more and more about your truck; remember also you're freeing yourself from dependence on a mechanic in the future! ;]

bullshyt - you need one car (at a time). but like, on a hot day i would never drive one of the mustangs. vinyl interior and no air conditioning combine with hot weather to create the nastiest "sweaty back and ass" syndrome. i can't stand it.

but as long as they keep getting stolen, i'll keep replacing them. i was just about born with a wrench in my hand and i'll be damned if i'm not gonna maintain that skill and father-son tradition in my family =-]

on a personal note, a car is my father's only tangible memory of his father (he has a car he worked on with his dad for years, and soon after they finished it his dad died young of a heart attack; i never met my grandfather), and so i guess there's a greater deal of sentimentality to it for me than there would be for most?

u make a good point morelos, I'm pretty much the same way, except from the point u make of owning all those nice cars and the work u've done, it tells me ur just older than I(I'm just guessing ur not 19 or something cause u've owned lots of cars, not to be rude) and I've got more work to do, I'm just less experienced as u but I have the same ideals stuck in my head

my dad also started out with a motorcylce at a young age, he bought it off a neighbor for five bucks because the guy couldn't figure out how to fix it, well he and his dad worked on stuff before and showed him the ways, so my dad fixed the bike and told me it had something to do with the transmission
at 17 he said he worked for honda and fixed motorcylcles, he soon moved up to cars as a mechanic, but after money troubles he started back in college and got his master's degree in electrical engineering and makes quite a lot for him to be proud of
one thing he told me was that during his young years he learned basically everything how to rip through a car a fix it, we have dirtbikes now and he's already shown me an overhaul on it(I decided to ride through water too deep and swamped it)
and even though he's brilliant in math, he still loves repair engines and work on them cause it was the one thing that he's really good at, and now he wants to show me those things so that I can know what to do if I break down somewhere, or if something breaks I'll know what it is and how to fix it, and I do my own oil changes and stuff because it really does save money to do it urself, same as fixing the laptop I'm on, I fixed it and works great

so two things run with him and I, being able to handle and repair cars and electronics very well
but my dad and my brother have this athletic part, my asthma stops me there and I suck at sports

how come ppl keep stealing ur cars??

oh and I just fixed my e-brake, funny stuff, Ipulled the release switch thing and the cable snapped and I was just sitting there in my driveway about to go to work holding the handle to my face like, oh shit what the hell now

good for you. keep working on it, and keep learning. i'm a 24-year-old professional mathematician and math instructor, just to respond to your curiosity.

we have dirtbikes now and he's already shown me an overhaul on it(I decided to ride through water too deep and swamped it
you're lucky you didn't crack anything. cold water on hot engine parts is a recipe for disaster, especially with air-cooled engines!

now he wants to show me those things
enjoying learning things from your father is perhaps one of the best ways to show appreciation. good ass deal.

so two things run with him and I, being able to handle and repair cars and electronics very well but my dad and my brother have this athletic part, my asthma stops me there and I suck at sports
it's funny. it sounds like you're heading down a path similar to mine. i studied electrical engineering as a top scholar at UC berkeley before i realized i didn't want anything to do with that ( regardless of being so good at it; i keep in practice by doing really pointless things like repairing a $20 network card instead of just replacing it :D ) and studying math. too bad you're asthmatic, though. does it affect your functionality or just your capacity to get cardio-vascular exercise?

the cable snapped... oh shit what the hell now
been down that road.

so here's the big answer:

how come ppl keep stealing ur cars??
i live in a deteriorating neighborhood. that's really the best explanation i can give you. that and the fact that mustangs are easy to break into and easy to steal. here are some pictures:

http://cars.fruzzetti.org:8080/gallery/gallery.cgi?func=show&file=200044&Category=100003&Page=1 is my red mustang. it's received a lot of stuff: new drivetrain, front to back; new suspension, wheels, tires, four-wheel disc brakes. it's tuned for racing and it turns 12.089s @ 127mph in a quarter mile. i'm very happy with its drivability in combination with its performance in rallies. in the background there you can see my prius before i did any of the work i did to that, and you can see my first green mustang which was stolen.

http://cars.fruzzetti.org:8080/gallery/gallery.cgi?func=show&file=200170&Category=100003&Page=2 is what happened to that green car. it sucks living near oakland.

http://cars.fruzzetti.org:8080/gallery/gallery.cgi?func=show&file=200026&Category=100003&Page=1 is a picture of the new green mustang, a total show car that unfortunately should not be driven anywhere ever. got really lucky finding it in illinois with only 35000 original miles on it (for a car from 1965, that's pretty awesome). it's solid as a rock, inside and out.. a real points-winning all original collectible. weird how it looked very similar to the old green mustang. this one was class though; way way way better than the first one and cost less than the insurance payoff from the first car. :D

anyway, sorry to make the response SO LONG, but there you have a little ticket into my passion for cars. feel free to browse those galleries.

wow dude those cars are awesome, I always hoped to collect cars or trucks like those, I'm more a fan of the older vehicles than these newer ones
My friends say it's like I like working with more mechanical cars than electrical cars because these days there's so many electrical systems in a car it's all kinds problem with that, rather than parts

as for my truck, I'm still going nuts on the lock passenger side, someone tried to break into it last week and ended breaking a window and tried to knock the lock out with a screwdriver....so now there's some paint scratched all over the lock area and the frame right under the lock is bent in
all I could do is get the closest color and paint it with scratch fix, and use clear coat cause I didn't want it to rust

oh and don't worry about writing long replies, I talk to ppl so much I'm used to it, I'd rather read something long and intelectual than something like a sentence that doesn't explain anything

repairing a $20 network card instead of just replacing it
btw, I've got this usb2.0 card for my laptop and it setup fine and installed right but the dam thing just absolutly won't work properly, actually it doesn't respond at all
it says it's enabled and working properly and my external burner responds to it, but it doesn't work
--like the burner starts, and then stops saying error
--nothing else works right on my laptop like it's screwing over other hardware
--it wouldn't even work right at all on my friends laptop with his usb2.0 external harddrive
--and I've taken it back, exchanged it for a new one, and I still have the same problem
--so for now I just don't use it, or even have it on the laptop cause it just disrupts applications

I can't figure out the problem..
1. just screwed up
2. uncommpatible maybe
3. brand sux maybe
4. power failure probably

I don't know, any thoughts to get it to work right?

how does the card 'interrupt applications?'

i've never gotten a usb EXPANSION CARD to work. only the built-on bus. usually it's an interrupt conflict; usb is really picky about what it shares with.

btw, thanks for the comments on the cars. it's a really fun hobby that you can drive around in. ;]

sucks about the truck. you should know already you have my sympathy; look at the shot of my first green car when it got stolen!

gah!

anyway, i agree with you about cars that are cars instead of computers, but i've done a lot of work on that prius (remember, that's a hybrid; mostly computer, a little bit of car) and it's also quite rewarding..
