Angles of Ownership
-Genjuro

It's a familiar ring. The name well known to carry small pieces of hope, small pieces of sanity.

Hello?
It's here.
I'm there.

This is the moment, this is when I step into the Dali, and out of the status quo.
Nothing is real, everything can wait.
A screaming chariot will carry me to Rome, where she awaits.





Does she know it's her time? Does she feel the end of the beginning?
Seas of water, paper, sweat, words and time have stood in her way.
All swept away. Does she know?



Out before me, the artery is filled with formed metal.
Time is of the essence, and the moon is starting to win.
If I can just cross the river, then all will come together.



The water rushing behind me, the goal just before me.
I feel it. Cords tighten. Air rushing.
The blood in my veins outpaces the spinning of our wheels.

Then silence. . . .















There it was, as it was meant to be.
Shake, sign, sign, sign, shake.
Keys.





The distance moves on now. Under a gentle scream.
The angles give knowledge to her demeanor.
She can't hide her birth, nor does she wish to.



Each curve glitters in my eyes.
A new facet at each look.
Stretching up, smoothing inward, piercing forward.



Now it is her, and no longer my thoughts that are folding, turning, twisting.
Silent wishes for clear skies and a patch of knotted clear road.
Our time has come.

Well, I'm back. I thought I would share my little musings with the group..

I see that there have been 2500 posts since made my way up, and back down the mountain.

Note to self: Don't even try to catch up. :D

I have to say, the car is simply fantastic. I have 1200 miles on it in 18 days, and that's even sitting out during the rain.

Break-in service was performed at a cost of $~270 at Criswell.

Thanks to Stan, the engine covers are painted, and the center console is about to be painted as well.

I felt I needed to step away from the message board for a bit, as a reset. I needed to vent 32 months of waiting. Let me tell you, the car takes all your worries away.

Also, I had Xpel installed by a DC area installer. He did a GREAT job and even cut some custom shapes for areas I want covered. Sorry guys, I couldn't wait for a group install any longer. I noticed that the rocks were quickly impacting the paint fininsh, so I had to get it done ASAP. If anyone is interested, send me a PM for his contact info (Dave, I'll shoot you an e-mail).

I'm glad to be back, with car.



:D :D

Now that's an interesting writeup! Will appreciate more pics of ST/red, as that is the combo I have ordered.

Congrats,

Thought I would do something a bit different.

I'll be taking more pictures of her soon. In the meantime, here is one of the interior.

Nice! I really like the gas station pic and the Lotus badge. Nice work. And the red interior looks great (and I never thought I would like a red interior).

Order up!

Bad lighting, but I'm sure to take more pics later.

I really like the story of picking up your car. It was like reading a picture book. Only a few well 'spoken' words per page, so you can spend the time enjoying the pictures.

Also, do we get kudos points if we can name the parts of the car in the closeup pictures? ;)

Awesome! Congratulations. Definitely send me the info on the DC area film installer. We'll have to get everyone together soon before Winter hits.

Are there any good places for us to meet up around the Tappahanock area?



Cade is from Hampton Roads area, and I'm in Ric.. It could be a decent meeting point if something is out there.
