Cars, Chicken, & Chicks

Well, my bday was last week, and we had some good stuff go down in Glendale (which I'll cover in another post). Anyhow, wasn't really trying to get anything crazy for my birthday, just wanted to get my daily beater back into tip-top shape, so I hit up the homie, Camry/Solara guru GregTRD to do the honors at his spot in Fontana.

As you can see, only Greg can take my top end and valvetrain apart in front of me without me questioning whether or not he knows what he's doing. Good shizz, son!
Greg also hooked me up with intact, rebuilt axles, as it turned out mine were more f**cked than we both anticipated. These were mine once they were pulled out. Keep in mind that good axles should have intact CV joint rubber and be in one piece. This is just the right axle, not both.Fail for both sides, this is the left
Farewell, good buddy, you're going to an awesome new owner. It was fun being a pioneer in discovering new parts for the car. Bob will put it through it's paces on his track car, where it's less likely to take the awkward speedbump/steep driveway/crappy freeway and pothole abuse it took with me.
On our lunch break from the car, we hit us up some Chick-Fil-A, mmmmm. Their nuggets, sandwiches, lemonade, sweet tea.... all bomb. We need one closer to West Valley.
She's never low, flush or fast enough to be an "Oh my Gawd!" type of car, and she rips motor mounts at the drop of a hat, but I still love her.
In the background, you'll catch a glimpse of Greg's red monster of a Camry; stroked, supercharged, and deceiving as all hell. Don't mess with him, dead serious!
After trekking back to the Valley, the homie Dex & I hit up Hooters Burbank to each put a couple dozen wings away, and in turn we ended winning at Wingo.

I know some of you are saying, "But B, you don't have any obligatory wing plate pics or any of your beautiful waitresses!!!"

I know I suck, and left the camera in the car, so sue me. Come join us next Wednesday, when we plan to utilize the prizes we won shown below

Came home to see that my cuzzo Mark dropped off some goods from his trip to JP. Thanks a load bro, I owe you when I go anywhere else with worthy merch!
You just KNOW that something bad is within the pages of this one, it's taped shut to make the casual perv buy it to see what lies beneath the covers.
