Very cool. The FTO, Eclipse targa, and so many old Mitsus that I've never heard of or seen before.

Here in KS we are only required to have one exterior mirror and the rear view. Being a cheapskate, I just use a motorcycle stem mirror stuck through the roll bar where the surround attaches. Quick, easy and effective. But I sometimes bonk my head on it.

I actually started to enjoy being rained on and the inevitable wet ass from running no top. Though I have learned it is nice to have lower 1/2 doors installed when it does rain. Road spray is 100x worse than rain water!

Top and doors were hung up in the garage the first of April for me :)

Door are on right now, top is off...because I forgot I have no side mirrors without the doors right now :lol:  Then I went down a dirt road...it's been raining for the last week...no sides on...back of Jeep has a little mud splash on the netting and inside now haha

You're right, I'm surprised we didn't create one. Just assumed we had. In fact I was under the impression that Dot's thread was actually posted here.. wasn't really looking that closely.

The Lounge / Playing around with the GTA V video editor...

I remember someone on here once saying that the bluegrass version of Metallica's "Fuel" would make great music for a car chase. Turns out, they were right.

Anyhow, starting to get some good results from dicking around with the in-game video editor (you can create custom camera movements within a recorded scene, among other things)... this one's my favorite finished product so far. Still lacks polish of course, I'm no professional, and it's really hard to get the PRECISE scenes you want when you're just tapping the record button while playing the game and hoping something cool happens. But anyhow, I think it turned out pretty good.

Rust is a killer. Floor boards, uniframe near front leaf spring mount and rockers.

Shop for a 91 or newer. In 91 both the 4.0 and 2.5 were updated to using Chrysler's multipoint fuel injection with OBDI. Both engines are solid and reliable.

If shopping for a 4.0 XJ, pick one with the Chrysler 8.25 rear axle.

The best part? Anything that may need to be repaired is guaranteed to be covered in a write up and YouTube video.

Two identical race engines are quite different than a pairing of a Subaru boxer and a Volkswagen boxer! ;)

BUT TWO BLASTYGASSES CAN WORK IN UNISON, MATEY!

HUZZAH!

The fact that we don't have a post about him in here is a crying fucking shame, and an embarrassment to all of us who knew him but didn't start one.  While he may not have been an admin or mod, he was certainly part of the foundation of this site. 

Meaty, bro, sorry it took so long to put this up for you.

For those of you who haven't seen it, here is the thread where dotCom announced he had passed away to us:
