    Realizing more and more in my own personal growth story that a lot of people don't want to see you succeed because they feel like they're not succeeding.
    People really do tend to project their own fears onto others, shit is wild. Never thought I'd experience from someone whom I thought was entirely in my corner...

    Anyway, the 911 build is starting to kick off. Waiting on parts is always a ton of fun, but it's gonna be so fucking worth it.

    Little column A, lot of column B. Needs both catalytic converters replaced. Since it's a M56 SULEV motor, the cats are built into the exhaust manifolds. Byron quoted me 1200 each for them, plus labor. Not going to spend that on a car I paid 2300 for. I'm looking at a Subaru Forester this week. Mostly cause it's 5 speed and can easily tow a motorcycle trailer.

    Sucks about that person that you thought was in your corner, mate. Been there. It's the worst.

    Wow, that's a solid amount of cash. A Subaru Forester is a solid car though, been thinking about one for us but I think we'll end up in a new Q3.
    Yeah, it's definitely not something you expect. But it's life, growth is a thing and people definitely can allow jealousy to get in the way of a friendship.

    It happens, I just know that in the end, I am where I am. Time to get the 911 sorted to be the best 911 I can afford.

    I'd love to know how much these fucking car youtubers are making...

    I need to figure out how to get KWs so much cheaper than what they retail for.
    These things are expensive as all hell.

    A lot. A channel like Mighty Car Mods gets estimated to earn between 1.3 and 21k a month depending on how well they did. Mind you, thats Youtube alone.

    Often these guys have extra sponsor deals etc. which drives the income further up.

    Fuck today sucked.

    Asked my boss if I could take a half day Friday and all Saturday off to go to Nashville. Unfortunately our service advisor is out the rest of the week on vacation and today was a shit show for the service department, so I don't know if I can or not.

    It's been a rough couple of days for a lot of us.
    I've been trying to find the words to make a post, and every time I write something out or re-read someone elses, it just makes me so fucking sad.

    I hardly slept last night. I tossed and turned, literally racking my brain to remember more and more little details and nuances and things that happened when I got the chance to visit Cory.

    I want to make a thread for people to post in, remembering Cory and the stories they had with them. It's easier than writing something sentimental, and it would bring me a little peace hearing stories about him I might have missed.

    Thoughts?

    Have been in the same boat man, all the little chats and laughs that were shared. The ability to remember as much as possible, while feeling guilt and grieving is extremely difficult.

    I think starting a thread could be very helpful for the people that are still on here, as well as just making sure Katie feels the love from everywhere possible.

    I’ll post up in that thread when I’m home from work.

    Junk guys came and got the e46 today. Gave me $975 for it, which is better than the $500 offers I was getting for trading it in.

    Picked up a 2015 Impreza 5 speed sedan. 86,000 on the clock. Just needs a good detail.

    And some wheels and low.

    I keep feeling so fucking guilty.

    I hit up Cory after he'd posted up on IG about his health issues, back in April. He said he was feeling good at the time, so I told him that my girlfriend and I were going to try to see him if we took a trip to Nashville this summer. Thanks to all of the money issues I had due to changing careers, that trip never happened. Goddammit, I wish we would've gone.

    I bet CJ. I bet it was filled with sadness and celebration all at the same time.

    It was good to see his mom and youngest brother again, hadn’t seen them since 2012 or so. Met Katie for the first time, she’s as sweet as C-Hutch was. We cried a lot.

    Also witnessed some burnouts, e30 axle failure, and got the cops called on us. So, perfect Cory weekend.
