Building a Cobra
April 26, 2008

The most I’ve done under the hood of a car is install an air intake. And yet of late, all I can think about is building a car. The idea came to me when I saw an advertisement for a replica kit of an AC Cobra. The kit would include the entire rolling chassis. I would then have to buy or salvage an engine and a transmission to power the car. When I finish, the project would have outted me somewhere around the neighborhood of thirty thousand dollars, not to mention months of labor. Not exactly something I have currently, so I’ll be putting this on my list of things I hope to do sometime.

The car pictured is the one I hope to construct. It’s an indigo blue AC Cobra that’s been given the white racing stripes treatment. I really don’t care much for the car’s big block engine. I honestly would rather mount something like Mazda Renesis or an inline-four block, granted I can find the proper parts. After all, I’m really just after the car’s look. All right, well, that’s it. What do you think?

Belle’s my car. Yes, I celebrate my car’s birthday. Please stop laughing.

Whoa whoa whoa! I almost forgot!

Today marks the one-year anniversary of this blog! The blog began as a clean slate with little direction, but has grown to take on a style on its own. I’ve sorted through tens of thousands of articles over the last year so I hope you enjoyed the content I bring forth. If there is any sort of content you would like to see, leave me a comment! I’m pretty open-minded.

Thank You’s:
I’ve blogged on Blogger, Vox, HTML and I have to say that WordPress has proven itself to the best. So I would like to thank WordPress for their wonderful service.

I’d like to thank those who read what I write and especially those who take the effort to give me some feedback. Please continue to read and comment!

Happy 2008!

Happy new years!

I’m sorry. I know I’ve been slacking with writing posts, but I’ve been busy with the holidays, friends and whatnot. I will also be taking off in a couple days for a trip so I won’t be posting for two weeks. I’ll see you later this month to commemorate the one-year anniversary of this blog. Thanks for reading!

Yuna Ito – Mahaloha (Feat. Micro of Def Tech)

After watching the Travel channel for the last two weeks and now this video, I’ve realized just how much I miss Hawai’i. I’ll thinking of saving up some money to go next summer. Who’s with me?

Belle’s on CarDomain
May 3, 2007


I finally got a CarDomain page for my car.

Unlike the majority of the members on CarDomain, I’m not one to fit my car with an absurd body kit and a spoiler of epic proportions. But I do enjoy making minor modifications to my car and by going down the list, you’ll see that most of my changes consists of things that keep to the car’s original aesthetics. (Among the tuner crowd, the designated term for this is “sleeper”.)

Even with performance upgrades, I’m a bit wary because many of them will void my warranty.

But I find working on a car is definitely a rewarding hobby.

Anberlin – Readyfuels

The music video has just ruined this song for me. But if you are quick (like a puma!…sorry), just minimize your browser and give the track a listen.

The only real high I have ever felt is driving ninety plus down the freeway at night with the windows down and music blaring. And lately this has been my track of choice.

Anyways, I don’t, in any way, suggest you do what I do. I’m all for safe driving.

I’m a man of hypocrisy, I know.

Hi Darius.

I’m no Aya Kato, that’s for sure. But I still like doodle on scraps of paper and in this case, the back of an Anthropology midterm.

Meet Darius. What is it? Your offspring. Just kidding, I don’t actually know.
