    1. Get into the 200 club at Maxton.
    2. Run the Silver State classic with my brother.
    3. Race the 'Ring against my brother(that's Nurburgring, not Nuremburg, Seth ;D)
    4. Run at Bonneville. I don't care if I hit 300, I think the experience alone would be incredible.
    5. Targa Newfoundland and Targa New Zealand in the same year.
    6. Own a daily driven 500+ci blown Deuce.
    7. Get my D-license at Maxton on a mini-bike.
    8. Build my dad the Chevelle he's always wanted.
    9. Have a group of car-minded friends always around.
    10. Own/operate a hot rod shop with my brother.

    I dont realy have 10 but heres a few:

    1. Straighten up my life
    2. See my kids and let them know I'm there dad
    3. Get back to my one true luv...........hotrods

    and I have thought about route 66, just filling up my gas tank finding whats left of the road and driving till I run out of gas, and that will be where I live for the rest of my days........

    The one thing I'd like to do before I die is drive (what's left of) Rt. 66...preferably in a hot rod of some sort.

    In no particular order:

    10. Build a nasty but road-trippable big-block for my 67 Malibu
    9. Build a decent 400 SBC for my 85 Monte Carlo
    8. Build a garage/shop for said projects
    7. Become financially free (so I can go fast) ;D
    6. build a car from scratch (as opposed to merely modifying an old muscle car)
    5. learn to TIG
    4. go 200 mph
    3. road trip the 67 to the Pacific Northwest and back (from PA)
    2. buy a car from another state, fly one-way, and drive it home
    1. raise a respectable bunch of little CarJunkies

    La Tomatina would be cool, I've seen the 'after' pictures, the town looks like the great V-8 Juice tsunami hit it. I'd also like to see the thing in India where they have paint and colored chalk...similar to La Tomatina...YouTube "Scooter Behind the Cow", that's all the music video is about.

    Now, as for running from a highly pissed off 1.5 ton Quad Stacker...uh..no.

    In no particular order:
    earn a 200mph patch at Bonneville
    build a car to race in Targa Newfoundland
    Build a '54 Buick to race La Carrera Pan Americana
    Thru-Hike the Appalachian Trail
    Drive Boy Wonder to school in a 10-second gasser
    Run with the bulls in Spain

    Improve my building skills and get enough shop equipment that I can build all those race cars myself
    Keep giving my son enough great memories that he'll never run out of things to tell his friends and kids about.
