Default Hey GDD/ I bought a 3rd mustang/ update on my life

Hey what's up GDD. Been a while since I was regularly active. I think I may have posted a little over a year ago that I left Florida and moved to Columbia SC. Wife had gotten a promotion at her company (New York & Co) and had gotten her own store.

I really liked Columbia. I stayed working in the magenta works at a T-Mobile just for a new franchise. Kind of took a step back from training manager to regular store manager but they at least matched my pay so I couldn't be too upset.

Back in December we moved to Greenville SC. It was a lateral promotion for both of us. Her District Manager wanted her to run their high volume flagship store and my DM wanted me to follow him up here to run multiple stores. We love Greenville. Lots of good food, lots of good beer, awesome downtown area, and some amazing mountain views (being from FL I'm easily impressed with mountain views).

I now live near the old HT user ipleadthe5th. For anyone that has been here a while he was a bit infamous for his Johnny chops for quite a bit back in the day. He has introduced me to snow boarding and snow skiing. Both are amazing hobbies that I absolutely love and can't freaking wait for it to start snowing again.

The day I moved to Greenville it snowed in us and I had to learn how to drive a rwd, 5 ton front end, light as a feather rear end, ******* mustang in the snow. That was less cool. But it's been a very very long time since I've seen snow so my 32 year old *** was out there building a snow man.

About a month and a half ago I finally left the wireless industry. I had an awesome leader who got fired and when I find who his replacement would be I immediately put my resignation in. I'm now working at Aaron's lease to own as a General Manager. The money is good but this isn't a long term job. I'm gaining experience as a GM that you don't normally get as a store manager and then leaving because I don't much care for the company even though I do have an awesome leader here.

My wife put her resignation in Friday last week and will be starting her new career as a General Manager at Staples in 11 days. I'm super happy for her and proud of her, while at the same time a bit jealous because I applied for that job 2 times and was way more qualified, but she just so happened to get the right person on the phone when she called. Either way, still super happy for her.

My $1300 mustang finally bit the dust for now. Blown head gasket. It's stuck in the garage. I'm not upset honestly. Most people have seen that thread and know what a pos it was so to have gotten a solid 4 - 5 years with ice cold AC for $1300 I can't be mad. I will fix it eventually but it'll be a while. I did replace it with another mustang. This time, I decided to get something just a tiny bit quicker though.

Anyway, that's an update on my life. Bout to buy a house soon. Saved up about $42k so far for a down payment. Trying to be able to put enough down to have a mortgage at or below $1k monthly and still get a nice house. Might even try and buy the one we are renting now because we love it so much.

Oh and I started a local group/club called board games & beer of Greenville. I have a room in my house dedicated to nothing but board games and alcohol. It's pretty fun. We have groups of up to 12 people come over and everyone bring their favorite craft beers and we just all pour a little in a bunch of flight glasses and drink beer while we play new board games.

I spent a night in Greenville last summer for a work meeting. That's a nice area downtown by the river.

I love that area. We probably go down there 2 to 3 times a month for drinks, dinner, and then walk around near the river. Even took my dog up there last week and let her jump around and play in the river. She's getting spoiled lately because our other dog just had to be put down.

It's not a stage 3 so no super charger. Gonna buy another one soon and likely get rid of both of the silvers. Either a super charged roush or a Shelby I'm the next year. Currently the wife and I take turns with the red car. I get it about 2 or 3 times a week. Going to the track soon to do a quarter mile. Will post results when I do.

That'd be my wife when we were on our honeymoon.

I'm going to ceramic coat the Stang soon and will get more pics then.

I'm just some random dude on the interwebz. If you've been around here at all you'd know that me and mustangs is more of a joke than anything. Everyone here likes to make fun of me for owning not one but two, and now 3. Also both silver strangs in the pic of the garage are 4.sl0ws and everyone has been telling me to get a coyote for idk how many years. I finally did.

Dirt cheap one is sitting in the garage. Link in my sig to where I was originally fixing it up.

Not likely, though we did get a 5 bedroom and intend to start taking our God son for 2 weeks a year so we may change our minds. We'll see. Not currently planning on it though but I made sure that we have the room if we decide to do so.

Mountain bike is a great idea man! Thanks for the thought. Def gonna talk to the wife about that as we like biking.

Board game night is pretty great. Sometimes we break into groups and use the formal dining room for one game while another group uses the game room. Game room pretty cool, small 32 inch TV on the wall with a USB with video tutorials for just about every game we own.

We play new and unique stuff, terraforming Mars, Catan, Villainous, Secret Hitler, etc. Next night will have secret werewolf or whatever that game is. We love games that involve stabbing somebody in the back usually, but sometimes we play co-op games like pandemic. I'll get a pic of my board game room this evening. It's nothing super crazy, I've seen some amazing board game rooms, but I like it a lot.

Yea I knew you'd chime in with that. I strongly considered rebuilding the blown head gasket and putting a supercharger on it, but I really think I'm just gonna get a GT/CS or Roush, or a Shelby depending on pricing I can find in a year. The difference is... well it's very very nice and now the wife and I no longer want to share the red car, we each want our own.
