New car
January 18, 2018 01:32PM
i picked up a solid car last weekend, thinking it will be an interesting build

2000 Suzuki Esteem (Baleno) GLX 1.8 Sport
5 speed
i think i will start slow with the r&d, auto-x, grass-x and go from there.



I would rather drive a slow car fast as a fast car slow!

thinking it will be an interesting build

Etymology:

From interest and -⁠ing; from Anglo-French interest, ‘interest’; from Classical Latin interest meaning ‘it is important’, third person singular present indicative of interesse, ‘to be important’.

Definition of interesting, adjective

- that makes someone think a lot and want to know more about it : an interesting conversation ▫ an interesting book

- Expressions :

Stimulating
- as interesting as watching grass grow thumbs up smiley

ironic (Is that what you intended ?) an expression used to refer to something that is very dull or boringThe debate between those two monotonic morons was as interesting as watching grass grow.

cut an interesting figure

(of a person) to have an interesting style of dressing — The new guy has great style; he cuts an interesting figure.

- Idiom:

in an interesting condition

old-fashioned – a euphemism meaning that a woman is pregnant — His fiancée seemed to be in an interesting condition.

From Antidote 9 V4.1






Interesting : the adjective of disenchanted morons.

This "idea" is not important and certainly does not make anybody think a lot, including the bearer of such an abysmally empty thought.

An another great example of destroying a language and a sport at the same time!

The inability to maintain a logical course of a process of analysing reality is strong with this one!



Ask for work.
If they don't give you work, ask for bread.
If they do not give you work or bread, then take bread.

i'm just glad it's not a volvo, subaru, xr, golf or thing else that you see at rally in this country these days!

i do get bored with things and money is an issue

i do still have the mustang on the back burner, i may sell or part it i have wanted to build and AWD V8 truck.

at any rate i just changed jobs and that will free up some cash flow, to build a car

i fail to see where this car is any different than any other.
the price of the cage is the same as is the suspension, brakes tyres etc.

not looking like the rest of crowd, priceless

i'm not here to ask permission

That vid is not particularly inspiring.
The vibe it instils in me is more Magnolia Sloth than Red Bull. eye rolling smiley

Rallying a Baleno would I guess be quite a niche move and indeed a statement of being different.
But could you pull it off like Nicolas Cage with his snakeskin jacket in Wild at Heart.

Some people want to drive a car quickly in the woods...some others want to be unique.
I dare you implying that we should feel anything but pure distilled admiration for sui generis posers!
