I kicked off the year with my 240z being cut into pieces
Martin re-introduced me to rock climbing; looking at these makes me want to get back on a bike to get these legs back into shape.
After a month with the shell I had her up and running
And then made her sound awesome
Then gave her a quick spray
Put her on the ground, even though she looked like a monster truck. She is the first 240z photographed with both a BRE front lip and ZG flares (50 pages of google images, and 150+ flickr pages confirmed)
Had fun cleaning a carb, turned out it didn’t help.
Started to work on my wiring diagram, oh how it has changed!)
Went to New York and had lots of coffee
Someone in the UK was selling my Octopus logo on eBay, and I got some triple weber DCOE 40s
Then she got coffee with me for the first time.
Made the usual trip to the LBGP with the short shorts
With nascar sounds
Then slammed the car to the ground with the help of YoshiFab.
Got a new camera.
Made the Z sound great
The car lost 40lbs
The Crazy Octopus returned
And the car got internet famous.
My sister graduated
Took a photography class that changed my way of life
Had a 240 gathering at the house
Martin’s car was no longer able to run over a soda can
Replaced the dash.
Dropped to a new weight low of 185, and did some self portraits for my final project.
Then get really really loud for open header night
Then she began her stint in the air, while I gathered parts for a Volvo b230+16v+t engine swap with a Ford T-5 transmission swap.
Went to DC for the rally to restore sanity/fear with my sister.
More real life.
The Volvo engine finally put together
Only to find out that it had a crack in the block…
And help make pasta from scratch.
All in all it was an eventful year, and above all far better than 2009. The blag itself grew in viewership tipping around 19,500 (nearly 10 times more than last year) views throughout the year and an average daily view of 50 (more than 3 times more than last year) page loads. The blog moved from just being viewed by friends to being seen all across the states as well as from Oxford UK to Warsaw Poland; Bratislava Slovakia to Canterbury New Zealand; Bayen Germany to Seoul Korea; Canarias Spain to Ontario Canada; Queensland Australia to Paris France; and Fukuoka Japan to Oppland Norway to name a few.
This year looks to be quite promising with the car to be up and running within the next couple months, daily photographs, and simply just more awesome. As always I’ll keep with the updates as long as you keep viewing them.
-‘till next time.
