video of my $1000 hotrod

ok, i got the hotrod, 89 z28 running very well. i found that loose rocker and now the valve train runs quiet and the exhaust note is terrific. i promised vids so here are two. more vids later.... i need to secure my video camera. lol... but you'll get the idea. i wish i knew what they did to this car to get it to run like this. in the fist video, i couldn't shift because i was holding the camera. the second video the camera flies off the dash but i was able to get 2nd gear. i'm not beating this car though and i shifted early. the car is NOT yet legal so i have to be careful. pavement is DRY...

i would have this car registered and blowing off 302 mustangs BUT, here in the peoples republic of florida, they charge a flat fee of $400 for plates. $400!!!!!! and then i have to pay for title and taxes. the total will be around $500. the ****'s piss me right off. and to make matters worse, the money goes to the cops so they can attack me for minding my own business. so, i'll probably just get it looking nice and sell it. tax N spend 'De-Publicans have ruined our once free country!

Just register it. You'll regret it if you sell it.

i don't know if i can give the state of florida more of my money. DePublican SCUM are stealing from us under cover of law. the vile insurance industry is writing these laws for rubber stamping.... we desperately need a revolution.

I'm in florida too. Just remeber we also have it easy because of no inspections or emissions testing. I know it's expensive. It's like every time i buy a car i have to set aside another 600 bucks just to get it legal. Don't let that stop you from doing what you want to do though.

the emissions scam is a different issue but i understand from where you come. they instituted that in my previous state of 'Taxes' because the neighboring county had a smog problem. SCAM SCAM SCAM.... i had a honda del sol that got 50mpg but wouldn't pass the nox. but the gov would have given me money to have my polluting del sol destroyed so that i could buy a new, dodge diesel PU. i moved from that BIG-GOV Taxes, sheet-hole to florida where there is slightly less BIG-GOV. regardless i called my florida reps and complained BIG-TIME about this blatant $400, DMV rip-off and the fact that insurance companies are writing laws. i encourage EVERYONE to do the same. here's a link to find your rep. tell them what you think because if you don't, things will only get worse. i'd also encourage you to vote libertarian. DePublicans are destroying our country.... i've got a lot of work to do on this hotrod pos though so no hurry. it needs paint badly but before i do that, i have to fix the fender bulge that occurred when a moron jacked it up in the wrong spot. it's all bent up under there.

america is run by insurance companies. they OWN our representatives, lock stock and barrel. having said this; i was really really surprised to learn that in florida, i wasn't required to buy insurance for my motorcycle.

Hmmm, never knew that about motorcycles. I've always wanted to get a bike. And that gives me a better reason to!

FYI; riding in florida is very dangerous. the old folks are out to lunch and everyone else is under the influence. i've never seen anything like it.... i ride extremely defensive.
