      Yeah much better than years back. It's handles well, ride is quite smooth too, a little bit of road noise but worlds less than my truck obviously. For the amount of driving I'll be doing in the next couple years it'll be perfect. The interior is pretty nice too.

      I did that for YEARS! (I kind of miss it!)

      I've been to Metropolis, too. There's actually a huge Superman statue in the middle of town. On my lunch break down there, I had lunch at the casino (just across the river in Paducah, Kentucky) and I won $75 on the slots.

      Check it out...

      These two videos are parts 1 and 2 of a movie called BIG NUMBERS which was a drag racing documentary film from the late'60s. It's a short film at around 30 minutes total.

      The other nite I was in the office a little later so I was tlaking to my coworker about that bike I want to build. We did a quick money break down and it added up fast. It was right about $5k but knowing me would be closer to $6k to build.

      The more I think about it I would rather have a cool truck that I could sink $6k in than a cool bike I will hardly ever ride.

      The donors are going for around $3k and that covers most parts.

      The frame I want is about 1k, tank about $200, lights $100, misc $500......

      Pant and powdercoat will add up and I am close to 6.

      If a cat battery is on a charger for 48 hours and still says it's charging (only showing around 11volts on the meter), do you think it's bad?

      Yeah I noticed that but it's not as loud as my Truck so I'm fine with it...for now. Maybe I'll buy some Rhino lining spray and hit the wheel wells

      Bringing it back



      On the topic of Sonatas. I feel that Hyundai spent all their R&D money on the exterior design. The interior in those cars are POOOOO. Had a base model as a rental for a week. F'ing awful.

      When I hear hyundi I still think of the crap boxes from 10+ years ago so the new ones are always better than I think they will be.
