My New Ride

February 13th, 2024 No comments

In October 2022 I began looking into buying a new car. Wes had purchased a new Honda Accord 2.0T Sport after his accident in Dec 2021 and I was really impressed with the HP it had. I went to Bob Boyte Honda where Wes purchased his vehicle from and met Kuzie. Kuzie had several Accords in stock but they were all white. I didn’t really want a white car and I wasn’t in need of a new car. My 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 was running fine and best of all, it was paid off. So I was in no hurry to purchase. Wes and I were still working on the Jeep and enjoying driving it and in Oct 21 we also purchased a used JetSki in need of a rebuild. We had a lot to do. So into 2022 we were busy working on both.

Come Wednesday January 4th 2023, Wes text me that Corey is at Bob Boyte Honda trying to work a deal for a Type R. When he told me the Accord was traded I was curious what they were going to ask for it. I text Kuzie and inquired. He said, “Sure, we have it. Want to come take it for a test drive?” I said, “No, I already know all about the car; I just need to know how much you’re asking for it.” I contacted my banker and Saturday the 7th I went and picked up this beauty.

To date I’ve only installed the Remark exhaust with Vibrant resonator, Android car play device and an AudiControl LC-1.800 Amp and Kicker 48TRTP122 downward-firing enclosure with a CompRT 12″ shallow-mount subwoofer and passive radiator. Had to get the bass back. Everything else was already installed by Corey @ Two Step Performance.

Jeep YJ

March 3rd, 2021 No comments

For just over a year and a half my son and I have been working on a project that we didn’t entirely want to take on but one thing lead to another and here we are. This is our newly refreshed 94 Jeep Wrangler YJ, 4 cyl, 5 speed. We bought this to drive while we work on our cars but it took on a life of its own. Wes says he did most of the work but I had more than a hand in it. As did a few people that helped along the way.

Thanks goes out to Corey Poole @ Two Step Performance, Geoff Burroughs @ Jackson Cylinder Head, Jason Denman @ Powder Keg Finishes ,, Kristen @, Leonard Metal Fabricators,, Midwest Sticker Shop, Automotive Color of Jackson,, TCP Global Raptor liner paints, Lakeland Glass and Tint, American Outdoors Paracord, the folks in the Central Mississippi Jeep Association Group and Jeep Wrangler YJ & Jeep Wrangler YJ Groups on Facebook.

And the biggest Thank You goes out to LaSonia for putting up with the Jeep taking up the whole garage at times.

Long drive to Austin TX today but a great time. We had a little blues for the road.


Passed these signs.
