I found a new hobbie for us during the 8 years of Obama's administration (vanity, but a good one)

Posted on 01/22/2009 9:12:17 AM PST by Scythian

We Freeper men love cars and our women, but we love our cars more (sarc). So, when they come and take your guns and other rights just relax, don't even stress, just engage yourself so fully in his new hobby you won't even notice, check it out.

Chevy V8

They're miniature but very real car engines, with photos that you can click on to make larger, and YouTube video's that show them running, very, very cool.


TOPICS: Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: cars; hobby; miniature
So, you have two choices:

1) Start your miniature engine hobby

2) Hang out in Amy's Potpourri thread for 8 years

I saw that a while back and was thinking Weedeater. On the other hand you could consider a V-8 chainsaw.

Got a problem with #2.

This country cannot survive four years of O’bumster, let alone eight.

Neat engine!

Way back when I was in highschool, a friend’s father had done the same thing with a Crosley 4 cyl OHC motor. He used it to power a miniature hydroplane. The Crosley was probably easier to build though, due to the OHC design.

5 years from now someone will be prying the muskets from our cold dead hands.

4 years is more like it and I already have a hobby! It involves a frozen martini glass, 2 oz of chilled “Tino’s” vodka and 2 blue cheese stuffed olives.

That is friggin' awesome! I would dearly love to own one of those, but I'd hate to think what it might cost :(
I'm learning engine repair as I go along. I have a 1954 Oldsmobile 88 that I'm restoring --

I did the paint job last year (first time at that - boy was THAT fun) and I'm now in the process of getting the heads rebuilt. I'll be doing the valves and guides myself, but a machine shop is going to hot tank the heads for me, since there was a tremendous amount of gunk causing blocked passages.

We do loves our cars - oh yes we do!

After Obamas eight years we can have another eight with Michelle Obama! By then his oldest daughter can continue the new American dynasty. This would please many! We can import more African Americans from Africa to counter the influx of Illegal (soon to be legal) aliens. Who need elections? they cost too much besides O-Man will solve all of our problems.

I used to sail Hobie cats around Mission Bay in San Diego. Loads of fun on a windy, beer-fueled day.

No thanks.
I'll be getting more guitar playing in. (And it'll be FOUR years, not eight)

And those 'gun' thingy's you mentioned? I *think* I lost all of mine, around 2005. Woke up one day and I just couldn't find 'em. And all the dang ammo went *poof* too. (musta been Martians)
