    Default Pet Projects

    Got any? For a long time, my computer was mine. I think I've gotten enough fun stuff crammed into it that I'll be able to play any game I want for the next two or three years. At the moment, it runs GTA4 on medium/high and Crysis on high. But I've gotten bored with gaming. Other than games, anime, and firearms, I like cars. I drive a Hyundai Elantra. It's not going to be the recipient of any modifications other than the usual stuff I do [when maintenance comes around, I improve intakes and exhaust, etc but not till something wears out]. My Elantra is not fast, and it is not slow. It gets reasonable gas mileage. It's a rather dull car around town, though it can be fun on the highway.

    I'd love a muscle car to learn about as I go. I'm quick enough of a learner that I can do most things with a manual and the right tools. Muscle cars are hard to find. I was looking at an 80's Monte Carlo, but they're hard to find in a reasonable state. And they don't make all that much power, so I'd have a lot to do.

    Good imports are hard to find [die, Toyota, die]. By good, I mean not a Civic, Celica, or Eclipse. I'd love to get my hands on a 240sx or one of the Z cars. I found some people that think it's fun to cram 350 Chevy motors [think 300-400hp] into little Nissans. After reading up on that, it does sound like fun.

    The motors aren't all that expensive depending on what you buy. But the cars seem to be impossible to find. I've only seen two driving around here, and none for sale within 100 miles online.

    This would be peachy if I had a garage to work in. I don't know specifically what car I'd choose, but it'd probably be whatever I can find. And then it gets made fast.

    As in, one-at-a-time hobbies?

    Lack of space is the only saving grace preventing me from becoming a stereotypical Jeep owner. Thank GOD, 'cause that ain't a cheap hobby. Research might count, (psychology, small arms technology, trauma care), firearms building might also count... would creative writing, meaning, designing a story and its world from the ground up, count? I rarely have just one thing going on at a time, which makes stuff hard to finish given my...
