Sweet rides, not mine…

Posted in Car stuff on March 17, 2009 by Stanley Carter

Here’s a sweet ride I saw from my Mom-in-Law’s house:

Satria with Perdana front end

An interesting conversion, it’s a Proton Satria with a Perdana front, the conversion includes the bumpers, both fenders and the headlights, the bonnet is from Mivec though, looks pretty nice IMO,  I think this is also pretty rare (or maybe the first?) in Sibu.

And then there’s this super HAWT Lexus:

2006 Lexus GS300

2006 Lexus GS300

This is a 2006 GS300 owned by my wife’s boss, the car was bought just months ago, so it is still brand spanking new.  You can really tell that my wife’s boss has a GREAT taste in cars alright, way da go! hehe~

Now that I’ve covered 2 nice rides, time to check on mine… which… is not that cool, nor nice, nor sweet at all LOL!

Apparently my dry-cell battery decided to spoil last Sunday just when I was about to drive it out for a spin or two, here’s a look at my dry-cell battery, which has been in my Charmant for almost 2 years:

I had it replaced on Monday with a much cheaper, wet / flood cell Battery at my friend’s workshop, here’s the new battery installed:

This new wet cell Battery actually costs me RM150 (a brand new dry cell battery would cost more than RM200++), I hadn’t bought any car batteries before so I ain’t too sure if that’s a reasonable price, and I always thought wet cell batteries were somewhere between RM60~RM80 only… WHAT IGNORANCE!! LOL!!

Though the new battery is cheaper, but downside is that I might have to build up a habit to check on the battery fluid from time to time, guess that ain’t much of a problem… I hope… *gulp*

On a side note, I’ve been informed that there is actually a well built Go-Kart track at Sarikei!  I asked my wife’s bro to take some pics and videos and they were shown to me yesterday.  The place looks very nice from what I saw, I forgot to ask him to transfer those video and pictures to me else I would’ve uploaded them here.  Anyways, I might be visiting Sarikei soon in a few months time, will have a better look on the track myself *wink wink* tsk tsk tsk….

I was browsing through my mail box this morning and I came across this particular Email from a friend of mine which titled “The 3 Stages of a Man’s Life”.  Pretty interesting as he used the King of the Jungle to interpret a ‘man’s life’, check it out:
