Oh so much change for me!

Life: Now married with a 4 month old boy, and teach automotive at the local tafe, good to work less hours for much more coin.

Cars: 95% finished building a ba Ute for skids and have a np300 that I have spent too much on and is the new money pit.

Falcon was the answer and having a ute is handy so that happened haha.

I'd clocked off. My life was over. Eyes welled with tears every time I looked at the SD stickers on my car.

Missed you all. Haven't missed much on my side though lol:

- haven't drifted in 5 years

- new job, still sucks

- moved in with Sarah's Dad for 2 years and finally bought a house last November. Thankfully not a place desperate for Reno's (fuck knows how any of you have motivation for that shit)

- headaches are still an issue

- bought Mitchys/Kumar's old E46 last year for budget skids. Got a few things I'll be doing the next month to it so hopefully do a burnie soon enough. Turns out even with my own nice roomy garage I still hate working on cars

- lots of Xbox and trying to make beats (which I still suck at but 10,000 hour rule means I gotta get good one day!)

 

Glad we're back!

I don't know if I've done a single thing to the laurel. It's in Bundy now, don't know when it's getting any action but at least I don't have to look at it.

Old boss told me he had a meeting about a job but turned out to be his sentencing hearing for kidnporn stuff so that was shit. Build switchboards in Yatala now. 

 

Got married, young fella just turned three, got another boy due September. Still BCF as much as possible but got into mountain bikes so do that a few times a week.

Finished weekender S13 build then drove it a bit for first year but not a lot after that 

Moved to Wollongong and built a Queenslander style house, still trying to get that sorted but at least now have 5 car undercover parking for all my shit 

 

Rebuilt hackily my S14 that I've had for 11 years now been driving that for about a 18 months. Getting sick of of the zenki front and some of the throw togetherness of it so spending some money to actually get it running properly and going back to kouki front 

 

 

Shame all the old content 😂 n her got lost at a lot of it wasn't anywhere else for a lot of people

I can't remember how long its been tbh. 

Last 2018 i decided was going to japan for a while on a working holiday visa.
Paid off my loan,  Sold all my shit, left my shed, left my house, left my job.
Brad stored the stuff i didn't want to sell. So still had my bmw e36 and my is200. 

Headed to japan in July with Jordan Clark aka Anus with the intention to drive a lot. That didn't play out at all. 
We got a place in Kokubunji, Tokyo. For the first 3 months. 
I had purchased a er34 sedan before getting over there, spent nearly 2 months trying to get shaken. Did everything right but still couldnt get a carpark. 
Ended up a friends shop saying they would put it in their name,
My friend Yudai got hit by a truck (which was doing an illegal uturn) and wrote the car off on the way back from getting shaken.
Gave up on cars and lived the party life in tokyo for the last month we had before heading south.
finally got a payout for my car the day we headed down south (lost over 1k) 
Still hated cars. so kept partying and just enjoying japan. 
After heading back to tokyo got offered an altezza to buy, massive yolo moment and snapped it up. 
Made it look cool and just cruised around it, didn't get to drift it unfortunately, really didn't trust the clutch on it. 
Still gave me some feeling back of liking cars again haha
Left Japan the end of January after 6 months without working at all. 

Come back to Australia for about 5 weeks. still had some money left so decide to go overseas again. 
Headed to bali start of march and spent a few weeks on Gili T at the top of lombok.
Was heading to Manila but all this shit started happening and it was going into lockdown. 
Changed flights, got to KL for a few nights, KL started going into lockdown, got to Thailand. 
And that's where i have been for the last few months hahaha chillen on an island called Koh Jum in Krabi.

Moved to Canada in 2013 and lived the good life for 6 years.

Sadly had to sell all my toys minus my S15 and return home as  visa ran out and company was no more. At least the weather is good in Brisbane

 

Name changed a few times in the years between 2004 - 2013 RADS14 was my last one.
