1961

Thunderbird

Belinda Kelly, a.k.a Rat Pink is no rookie when it comes to 4 wheels. From the early age of 12, Ms. Pink would spend her summer vacation wrenching at her dads automotive shop while other girls her age threw tea party's and played house. In 2006 while searching out a new project, she and good friend Jon came across a 1961 Ford T-bird. The car was rough, but complete (minus fender skirts) and only $200, it was perfect. Several years later, Bilinda's 61 T-bird has received a second chance to burn up the streets  *  #

The Gearheads Wife BANG! THUMP! CLUNK! Rattle, rattle, rattle.... â&#x20AC;&#x153;What did you just drive over?!â&#x20AC;? asks my BFF while we chat on my hands free. I spend the rest of our conversation explaining that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the shocks, or struts?! I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not urgent. The car still works and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not dangerous...Well, I am assuming itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not dangerous, since my husband is aware that the kids obviously ride with me! Then, she asks a question that gets my wheels turning... â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re married to a mechanic, why is your car in such rough shape?â&#x20AC;? The honest answer is pretty simple, my car is not cool. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just for commuting, therefore it does not deserve regular oil changes or maintenance. You know how thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some hair dressers that are just so prestigious, they only accept certain clientele â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like that. Thinking a little bit deeper into the subject, I start to wonder why he feels that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;? am not deserving of a well tuned, decent vehicle??? Is he not embarrassed that his wife drives a car with the bumper falling off, winter tires in August, squeaky breaks that you can hear from blocks away, and a rear end that thumps and bangs and bounces like crazy over any little bump?! Not to mentioned that he has four vehicles to my one. It seems that I could complain until Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m blue in the face. The fact is he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give a crap about my car. The fuel consumption is way too high to consider driving any of his vehicles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d let me :P Sigh... The dreaded oil light is on so I just take it to Walmart. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even remember the last time the oil was changed! I throw my all seasons in the back and get them to change the tires too.          bumper has to be done in an ICBC approved shop anyway (and paid for by the idiot that rear ended me). OMG! This is so easy, book the appointment and get the shocks replace at the same time. Sure â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;? are paying more for something that he could do himself. I conveniently leave the receipt on the counter for him to see. Next time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ask about going back to the shop and see what he says. This might be the end of nagging! Ha ha, now only if I can hire someone to take out the garbage and pick up after him!

Mail Bag        zine. The Gearheads wife article is great and freakishly true. I think every wife out there married to a car guy goes through the same stuff at least once if not repeatedly. Keep it coming. Susan R from Maple Ridge LOL, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how close to the truth that article really is. Build SYNTAX !!! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still pissed of about the HST , now we are getting a Syntax I cant take it anymore, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to pay cash for everything from now on. Jon Langley U Blast Love your mag ! Well Jon I think everyone out there feels the same as you, the whole tax thing is getting a little out of control. I love how the can give themselves as raise whenever they like, I went to my boss and told them I gave myself a 30% raise, he laughed, told me to get      piss test because they thought I was high....LOL Build

I did some real dark, grimy skulls on my buddys calf in my parents basement. Preferred style ? I only do black and grey. Im pretty hyped on the chicano Mr. cartoon style right now. I also love doin japanese style with twist to it. Opinion on how mainstream tattoo's have become ? I'm feelin it, i'm glad im getting into the industry as it growing and evolving. You rides ?
