    sooo yeah i decided to shorten the antenna on my car. i cut it down to 18" and just put a coat of paint on it. lol i used some appliance paint. right now its drying from the first coat but once it dries, im gonna sand it down a bit, wash it off and do another coat, then put a couple coats of clear on it. then ill take some pics once its back on the car! :dancing6: :dancing6:

    blown intake gasket... it doesn't run very good at all. i have NOOOOOO POWER AT ALL.. my friend beat me in his stock 96 GT and another kid that was messin with me that owns some SUV hung with me till i got out of 2nd gear, thats how slow it is.. at like 5500+ RPM, my car bogs down terribly and then picks back up after is slumps..

    clutch seems to be going out. i have to ride it just to switch gears and its hard to get into gear at times..

    and somethings loose in my drivetrain, it bucks everytime i let off the gas and when i get back on the gas, it bucks.. as im slowing down, my car bobbles back and forth for some reason..

    i need an oil change.. i need to flush the radiator.. i need to trade it in and get a new cobra. iono im just rantin because im pissed off. i want to get stuff done but i have no job and the weather down here fawkin sucks ballls. i can't stand winter, AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
