It was the carnival glory. This was the same cruise (and I have a movie of it on my digital camera) that the crew rescued some people at sea.

Picture taken today of my car along with Nature Girls LS at the 2010 Mi-Fbody meet and greet.

I do have one addition. Al Oppenheisers Signature!

It was funny as Al noticed my radar detector wire under the hood and knew right away that it was "aftermarket"

The video I have is just a video of the lifeboat being brought back on board.

The people the ship rescued were not passengers, but it was a private fishing vessel and we were closest to respond.

I got Al Oppenheisers signature at the Fbody meet and greet and also unfortunately got my first door ding. I managed to work out nearly all of the door ding though, and my arm is real sore.

I'm thinking I would be real good at paintless dent removal with the proper tools and training.

I took a couple of images of my door ding. I have to say for amateur paintless dent removal, I did real good.

You can see it in person if you look real closely.

Are the halos magical?

Today I decided to drive back from my in-laws in Howell with the halos on.

It seems that on I96 right at the Ingham county border I noticed that cars gave me a huge pocket of space. I had about 6 car lengths before my car and after my car.

Not that I was driving overly fast or slow, but it seems the left lane was pretty congested, and the construction they were doing slowed the traffic up.

I wonder if it was just people checking out the car giving me lots of room, or because I had the halos on?

You can, you just seem to arrive after me, and leave before me though

Yesterday I had the lower bumper part of my clear shield replaced. Two spots weren't stuck down properly, and I also had them fix the clear shield I scraped off of my passenger mirror.

I had cleaned and coated the car with rejex prior to doing this, and wanted to make the car look real good.

Today, I managed to take another cell phone shot of my car along side of Ol'Fart's car.

Here's a couple of pictures I took today with my cell phone. It's too bad I didn't have my real camera.

I took a couple images today. One of my car poster, and the other of something very special.

I just installed my KN air filter, and I did notice the difference right away.

I was a little worried it seems as there is evidence of mice making their way into my air filters or both my Camry and my Camaro.

Anyhow, I vacuumed the bird seed out of both of my cars. Air filters and drove it around for a bit. Had a Victory Red follow me, but I took the curves from US 127 North onto I69 west at 60mph and left them far behind me.

Anyone have any suggestions on what to do about these mice? I don't want to let the cat free in the garage.

I played around a little with my camera. I got a good image of the black gill stripes on my RJT.

Gills look good on there Tim. Cars is looking great. Don't know what to tell you about the mice, but letting the cat loose looks like a good option. Maybe call an exterminator

Thanks Becky. I found a bag of birdseed that seems to be calling them in. I've removed that, so hopefully that will take care of the problem.

I'll have to check the airfilters on the cars for the next couple of weeks to be sure.

Corsa Cat Back

I've been meaning to make this video, and upload this for a while.

I made a video of the Corsa Cat Back

I met a lurker of Camaro5 last week.

He contacted me and wanted to see my car as the options I had were near exactly what he wanted.

I posted this in the spotted in Michigan Thread, but thought I would do it here.

Only thing I didn't have my good camera with me.

So here they are, side by side two RJT camaros. The 2011 model 2LT, no stripes, RS, black interior and midnight silver wheels. Then mine 2010 with black stripes, Corsa catback and 20" SS wheels.




Had I had the camera, we could have done stock v6 exhaust and corsa catback.

The HUD was pretty cool. I tried to see if there was a difference in the passenger seat, and I noticed no such height difference.

Here's a couple of pictures of Cliffy in Oshawa, Ontario Canada.

I took him up there for the meet and greet, and had one hell of a great time.
