First post

Howdy howdy,

First post today, so I thought I'd talk a little about myself, and a little about what I'd like to talk about. I'm a car nut mostly, so you can expect a lot of posts going down that road. While I prefer muscle cars, theres room in my life for much more than that, but more on that later on. For the time being my garage is exclusively Ford Mustangs. I know how that sounds, but believe me when I say I didn't choose my cars purely for straightline speed; I'm more into making a car handle. Whodathunkit right? I thought all mustang drivers ever did was roast tires and leave straight black lines all over the place :P

I also have an affinity for older motorcycles; I used to own an old Yamaha XS650.  It was a good bike, when it ran. I guess I can only blame its reliability woes on myself. After all, I'm the fool who spent $1100 on a deathtrap motorcycle from 1980. But if theres anything a deathtrap of a bike does, it teaches you how to ride. The first thing one of my friends said after riding it was "Your bike has NO brakes" I laughed and shrugged it off until the day when my brakes really DID go. Trying to tighten the nut on the front brake handle to regain braking power while headed towards a crowd of traffic is not something I ever want to have to do again. what about the rear brake you ask? what rear brake *rolls eyes*

Enough about me and motoring though. Looking forward to your comments and making future posts!
