toys you're buying this/next year
August 28, 2008 09:37AM
first of all , i love myself so im spoiling myself with 2 loves:
1. a second hand BMW 650GS, i saw some for R35 000, so hopefully absa/wesbank plays the game, then its off to baviaans to do some real offroading.
anyone watch long way round / long way down?? awesome stuff

2. Being a big Canon fan, its hard to sluk it, but the Nikon D90 kicks Canon's ass 100%. I dont like that but im getting accustomed to it.
check out the specs:

Can't have razor wire fences anymore in the Cape so will just do with the gatling gun and bear traps on my side.

why can't you have razor wire fences anymore? you might as well just pack all your stuff on the pavement, rape and kill your family and then kill yourself.

New Municpal by-laws that will ban razor wire and other "unsightly" fencing in the Cape Metropol. Not so sure when it comes into effect. Thanks DA for doing your part towards tackling crime cause property values are being affected by this type of fencing....

Ironic isn't it.

sooo.. if you already have razor wire, you need to take it down and replace it with electrical fencing thats not going to work the first time kooberg goes pop.

I also suppose that the municipality is not going to subsidize the replacement of razor wire.

Its also probably so that a lot of foreign investors will come and buy the rest of cape town - and they always get scared off by wire.

how bad is crime in the cape?

I wonder how well such a by law will be accepted in jhb. thumbs up smiley

Crime in the Cape? Never: We only have the highest Murder Rate (yes we beat Jozie now but its fine cause its only Gangsters), we have the highest house-breaking rate and rape rate.

But the difference in the Cape is our crime is geographical so you know what areas to avoid. Hell, I still have not locked my one frontdoor and kitchen door since we moved into our Ground Floor flat in March... can't remember where I left the keys.

crime here is also geographical... from springs in the east to roodepoort krugersdorp in the west and from meyerton to midrand in the north. other than that area, joburg is pretty okay and crime free winking smiley

I was hoping for a Ferrari 430 but may have to be content with a GTi. In any case, my REPSOL Fireblade is kick-arse awesome, but given the current economic climate, I might have to sell it to pay for my wife's new double-cab bakkie.

This is what happens when you marry someone that grew up in the Karoo.

ever thought of movign back to the karoo - at least her bakkie will serve a purpose there and your cost of living will go down so you can probably still afford your Fireblade

I might just buy a farm around Ladismith if I become insanely rich to leave this city drudgery alone! Then I will develop it as an adventure farm with quad trails, set up my own observatory, etc.

Until then I need to make life bearable.

A rebuild project:
An old rear wheel drive car, (Volvo 144, Ford Escort Mk1 etc) powered by a turbocharged H22a DOHC Vtec (2.2 liter Honda Prelude Vti-R engine).
There is nothing powerful than a Honda.grinning smiley

what is the significance of H22a as opposed to say H21e?

I'm not sure about the H21e but from what I see (H21e) it must be a 2.1. I also don't know if its a DOHC Vtec or NOT. The H22a is a 2.2 PGM-FI(Programmed Fuel Injection) DOHC Vtec used on the Generation 5 Prelude VTi-R(1997). South African versions had a compreesion ratio of 10:1 and produced 152KW @ the fly. The JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) spec had a compression ration ratio of 11:1 and pumped out 164KW @ the fly. Europe had an H23 but it did not have Vtec.

The H22 was the mother of Honda Vtec 4 cyclinder engines before the S2000 was produced. Its 2 liter makes 180KW, making it the most powerful engine world wide in its class.

you can find more info at http://www.hondaboys.com/forum It should appear under Prelude or http://www.superhonda.com

Hope you find this helpfulgrinning smiley

I drive an old beat up honda (low km's) and enjoy servicing it. I wash it once a week (saving R120 per month - which I proceed to blow on myself). I need to vacuum the interior as my feet don't rest as low as they used to, with all that accumulated gravel. I'm a fan of reliable transport and hesitate to get into the computerized car market as those ppl are worse than M$ when it comes to replacing chips. That's as far as my interest in cars go.

Old school has always been wicked.smile

I'm a big fan of Honda (Cars & Bikes). I've come across alot of convincing information about them (performance, reliability, quality and service).

spend sometime on http://www.hondaboys.com it has very useful info, you'll also feel more than proud to own one!smile

I've bought a bunch of LCD's - some colour & black/white replacement for Nokia phones - planning on making an rev meter/altimeter/ car computer. Coding in c & asm with 300 bytes RAM 8K ROM, so I can log my trips and consumption.
Looking for a cheap GPs for it.
And gonna make my own Car Mp3 player, by interfacing a mp3 decoder chip to a Flash disc, or when I can, an IDE drive.
Pimpin!
