  • Top 100 automotive things to do

    A few months ago, Hot Rod published a list of things to do before leaving this big ball of mud. I missed the list- got to the news stand too late to get a copy. Can anyone post the list or point me to the list online?

    Thanks!

    I'm familiar with the list because, well, I wrote it.

    I can'r seem to find it posted anywhere though. :'(

        Brian - if you wrote it - certainly you have it saved somewhere?
        ;)
        There's always something new to learn.

            Yeah, just not on my work 'puter.

            I'll seek it out tonight at home, although if it was writting on my old lap top it is gonzo as that computer fried.

            If anyone has a scanner that would work too.

                          Is this the list Brian put together?

                          Wasn't there some scale of how cool you were based on how many you did?

                          I've got 41 with a quick scan. I have three more that I should take care of this year.

                              I think I was in a 22 and got shit from DF and Rob about it.

                              Then there was Speedy (who has disappeared incidentally) who called the list "elitist"...which still kind of chaps my ass a little. It's a list of cool stuff coupled with "dream" items that I think any one of us would want to do.

                              I dunno.

                              Put it on the wall and check them off!
