Last week I washed it, waxed it, tune up, inspection, got a full tank of gas. Then went out for pizza and got hit by a Cadillac not paying attention. Today I took pictures for my memorial shrine.

Thnx, no one was hurt, just a few sore muscles. I just got accepted to A&M, which is a two hour drive. Thinking of getting 94 civic, 45 mpg. Use the rest of the insurance money as a safety net or tuition depending. I would like to, just cost to much in gas at the moment.

Installed a Kenwood DDX419, 300/4 and 500/1, Xtant 10" Hex and Audisons all around. Ordered a JoeZ intake pipe and TRD filter... Also discovered an issue with a wheel... Time to either replace with another OEM wheel or look into aftermarket...

Flushed my power steering fluid... The old one was more brown than red, so it was high time for new dexron III.

You should have a full size spare. Could swap the bad wheel with that.
