My Next Car Project for 2008

Got PowerPoint? Then you can check out my latest car project idea...

Similar builds have been pulled off successfully by a few professionals but nothing remotely local that I'm aware of.

Anyway, I have access to a TIG welder now and a project like this is mostly raw material. Hayabusa engines go for $2500-$4000 so it's not an expensive project either. I'd need to buy a tubing bender (figure $500-$1000 by the time I get all the dies I'd need).

Yes, I am a mad scientist.

Anita Newmakeupperson


Did I mention I saw Anita Cochran (aka 'Anita Newmakeupperson') last week at Old Chicago in Old Town? Well, I should have said something sooner. She looks exactly like she does on TV, meaning there's a 1/2" thick crust of makeup on her pate. Rene Stevens and her must use the same make-up person. Don't get me started on that one.
