And its pretty sweet. Been at it about a month so far.
Between my higher learnings I'm now the caretaker of this vehicle:



We picked it up from some place in vermont a few weeks ago and just it back this week with the new paint and stickers.
When we picked it up it looked like this:

And before we got it it looked like this:

So thats what I do now to make money.
Theres also the practice car that needs maintaining (not the tracker, and no its not mine):

And theres some fun toys I get to play with too:



So this should feed my rally bug while I'm still poor and in school and cant rally anymore. I'll be at all the nationals except one or two, depending on when my baby pops out.

The end!

Carl,

1. The traker is yours. Despite what Carl wants the world to know, it's his dream vehicle, and he is finally able to afford one with his new job.

2. The co-drivers name is wrong on that car, and you need to tell Jeff that.

3. I thought you told me the car was going to look good when it got out of the paint shop?

I've gotta say, you've got more guts than I do..... I wouldnt have a calendar/picture of scantily clad women near machinery that requires precision and exacting tolerances.

But then again, I've got little to no willpower.

;D

Took both cars out for a good testing today. Probably put 30 miles on both before the road went to shit. The new car is damn nice!

I didnt puke in either. Last weekend all my puke made it outside the car. This weekend I didnt eat a giant greasy burger from the bar down the street before we started. The puke factor of the new car is also lower, its so much smoother on stage.

Maybe it was the splash in the face from the leaky shifter boot that kept my stomach settled? The new car gets more water inside than the old one. Time to bust out the rtv.
