    Did you buy anything recently?

    I bought a "new" daily driver. 22 years old grey Volvo S60. Feels kind of good to drive a stick shift again but I need to practice my clutch leg.

    What are you listening to?

    I wish I would understand the lyrics. It sounds so beautiful.
  3. Today I tried swimming in a frozen lake for the first time in my life. I thought it would feel more like "WTF am I doing" but it was more like "oh, the water is surprisingly warm". I think I will do it again sometime.

    My head

    I'm pretty sure I know how to solve this issue. We need a crossbow, an hour glass, three goats, one of us must learn to play the trumpet while the other goes like *this*. Does anyone know a man with a goat?

    My head

    How do you eat without a head? You're gonna starve.
  6. I finally got myself a "pork beef MC" T-shirt after years of waiting. I'm so happy. I'll share a photo of it with y'all when I get home. :awesomedash:

  7. My eyes! The goggles do nothing. What foreign languages? Finnish? Welcome to the forums! Hope you have a great time.
  8. Jebin! My summer holidays just started! It's going to be an awesome midsummer this year. I heard the weather is going to be so warm that we might even break the national record for drowned people this year. :awesomedash: For your disappointment I won't be one of those unlucky ones. I will be fixing my Chevy as usual. She needs some welding (again), new rear shock absorbers and new valve guide seals.

    Sleepwear thread

    Usually I wear just T-shirt and boxers. If it's cold I also keep my socks on.

    What do you drive?

    1988 Chevy Caprice. She only has 262 CID V6 but I love her nevertheless. She has a street performance TH700-R4 transmission with 2400 RPM stall torque converter which is kind of stupid for this tiny engine but anyways she's a reliable and semi fuel efficient partner. She's an old taxi with more than 350k miles on the clock so she needs some maintenance and care. Fuel prices have been surprisingly cheap at 6,35 $ per gallon so I don't have to count every penny when I'm out there motorvating.
  11. @moiralabrecque03 Here's some pictures of my Caprice.

    New front seat 1/2 installed

    Water pump change

    Probably installing new ignition switch or hi/low beam switch. I don't remember anymore. I have changed them both and it was almost similar operation

    Shotgun side rocker panel had some rust I made new panel using wise grips and angle grinder New rocker panel welded Painted with primer using spray gun It turned out pretty good.

    I had to also fix driver's side rocker panel. It was even worse

    Both frame rails were almost cut in half So I had to make some reinforcements

    Driver's side quarter panel had some rust In the background you can see my best friend. 3 phase 380 volt Kemppi mig/mag welder.  :HappyPinkie:

    Friday and beer. Here's the lyrics if you were interested
  14. Bought some mac & cheese from Lidl today and noticed that the Swedish instructions had a hilarious typo. "Använd inte en minigun eller ugns grillfunktion!" (do not use a minigun or grill function of your oven). Now I have this image in my head of your average Swede having a minigun right next to his toaster. :haha:

    what grinds your gears

    Out of curiosity. How high is your rent and how big is your apartment? My rent is 540€ and I live in a typical 27,5 square meter one room suicide apartment. I think it's annoyingly expensive. Other expensive things that grind my gears: Obtaining a motor vehicle. Thanks to car tax that is included in the price of new vehicles. Owning a motor vehicle. Annual vehicle tax for my car is 440$. In return for that money I get nothing. Oh, and the mandatory periodical technical inspection is 100$ every year. Driving a motor vehicle. Regular gas costs about 6,5$ per gallon (again high taxes). Food is expensive, beer is expensive, cigarettes are super expensive. Basically everything that you can find in a supermarket is expensive.

    Did you buy anything recently?

    TNP-B periscope for T-54/T-55 main battle tank. Not sure what I'm going to do with it. It was just too cool not to buy. I'm guessing someone salvaged it when Finnish Defence Forces were upgrading their equipment years ago.
  18. Oh dog, I chipped about 1/5 of one of my back tooth when eating Karelian pie this morning. :kdR94: How is this even possible? Karelian pie is softer than the food at Mc Donalds.

    I didn't even realise it was part of my own tooth until I had thrown it in the trash bin and started wondering how it got into my food.

      My thoughts exactly. I kinda knew my teeth are not in that good shape but I didn't know it was this bad. Let's see how expensive this will get.:doublefacehoof:

    3. Fintale


      The free public healthcare only charged 59€ to repair my tooth. Private sector price would have been around 180€ so I saved about 120€. Then again I paid over 6k€ in taxes last year and this is the only thing I got in return. :flutterrage: At least the service was 6/5.

  19. Happy midsummer to y'all! Let's all celebrate the nightless night.
