Nothing, I made $30k more than last year because of all the call and overtime I put in. Pretty sure I'll be bending over again.

I ran numbers in the fall on what it would cost to get my really really clean 98GT to the performance level I wanted and decided to sell it and put the next two years of tax returns into getting debt free completely (minus mortgage) and then buying a Coyote or 07-09 GT500. More cost effective/better results than putting $12-$15k into a 20+ year old SN95 GT. So this year's tax returns went into paying off credit cards and next year finishes off a personal loan and that will be about that.

It's funny how we get ourselves out of debt to go back into debt. But I think for a coyote it's worth it.

Nothing. It's gonna sit in my savings account where I won't touch it. I was originally planning on buying a motor but ended up selling the car instead. I may buy a new hopper for my paintball gun and a videogame or two.

Going into debt for a numbered car that will get 2-3k miles a year put on it at most that will hold its value pretty well is not exactly the worst way to go into debt. Even if it depreciates $8k in the time it takes to pay it off, that is 5 years of enjoyment and then I turn around and sell it and get most of the $$$ back. That was never going to happen with a 98GT no matter how nice/fast it was. This is why getting a GT500 is appealing to me, also because they come with pretty much built motors right off the bat and finding one that already has all the bolt ons/RXT done is fairly easy and pretty much every GT500 owner spends the $$$ on quality parts vs getting a 2V with SR/BBK everything.

Right into savings like it has the past few years.

As appealing as that .308 S&W AR and cams for the Mach 1 are I'd much rather have it further build my savings. You never know when and how much you might need it these days.

Hopefully I can finally get the racing stripes with pinstripes, quarter window louvers, 3.7 badges, and some window tint. Education credits really paid off this year πŸ˜…πŸ‘

If you save up for a few months before tax season it's even better cause then you have a huge lump of cash to spend. Or you can save. I'm investing most of my tax return. But I saved up for a few months so that's where my mod money is.

Very evil sound, unfortunately stupid loud...

I somewhat did that but I saved up a lump some to pay off a few bills so my income tax was all fun money. Took 15 hours to install,my headers and was almost 1200. That is what I wasn't expecting

Doesn't matter how loud it is, you aren't going to make a 4V sound like a pushrod with an exhaust. Also obnoxious loud systems generally sound like **** and piss everyone else off.

Ghost cam is just about the only way.

Um, ok, I said earlier cams with the exhaust sounds like a cammed pushrod. I'm well aware of people and exhaust loudness, and no it doesn't sound like ****. You aren't telling me anything I don't know...
I'm not a novice in this area...
