Hey guys.Lets go straight to the point.
I just bought a car.Yes most of you know this,but do you actually seen it before? Noooh?
I named her..you guess it..the "Old Lady"
So much for the flamboyant racing red image that I am trying to instill..but who am i kidding.Its only has so much to give (53 SAE horsepower/55 NM torque)
My band of mechanics was totally dumbstrucked when I told them I pushed "Old Lady" up to some 165 kmh at the highway..chasing a Singaporean BMW e90 5 Series.Not only they did not believe she can go that fast,they also concluded that I am a bonafide idiot to do so.
Do you have enough sanity to drive some red tin box up to 3 digit speed,slamming the throttle pedal almost 30 minutes without break?
You know what drives me? I just hate to lose to Singaporeans on the road.
Especially those ones flashing their beautiful Angel Eyes HID beams from nearly 2 miles away asking me to step off.
Sure,do it once.I'll understand..heck..I drive a BMW too you know.But flashing like a maniac from Hell with no signs of slowing down while i am waking up the leftover horses in my stable to overtake some lorry is a real big deal to me.They cant speed in Singapore,so they want to come here and do this to me ???
NO WAY.those incident while i was gated' by a Toyota Wish while driving the RX-8 just cant get off my mind about how Singaporean acts on our turf.who gives a damn if this is just a 15 year old car?
Go for it Daihatsu,lets give them something to ponder.
Reality,however..is very cruel.Went past me he did,with style and grace too.I bet he was pulling some 200kmh,listening to some Billy Joel tunes on Light and Easy while i was in the verge of wrecking my car,pushing it to an all time high of 165kmh when the 3 cylinders raging for a break at 5450 rpm.
That night,I drove from Alor Gajah Toll to my hostel in Batu Muda..in 1 hour and 4 minutes,averaging at list 130kmh and travelled a total of 169 km.That was the point i really developed a sense of respect to my "Old Lady".
Here are some pictures.
Seats were from a Honda Intergra DA model.Got if off for free,not bad~
Notice that Clarion headunit? the whole set costed me RM3000 including a nice 200W 2 channel amp and some coaxial speakers/woofers.I even asked for a custom wooden board to fit the woofers and to generate better bass/low sound.
On a lighter note,I was in my cousin wedding last month.I want to wish my cousin Jija a happy life and hoped that she will be happy eternally with his husband,Abang Man.She was the one who took care of me while Mak and Abah was working back in the 1990's.
I wanna get married too..hmph XD
