No he took all that shit out, it was shit out of his basement that flooded last Saturday when his sprinklers broke, LOL, I said a hundred bucks or not, I don't want all that shit in it, he laughed and said he'd go get his wife and daughter to take it out, and I was like good call cause im not taking it out, I just barely got it home, tow trailers are the way to go, I always just use a strap and a 2nd driver(never let a girl be the rear driver) or the front now I think of it, I didn't even need anyone else, think If It was a usual necessity I would buy one, but I'm stoked as hell, I did try backing it into my garage, that would have been better with a 2nd person, but I ended up just putting it in the driveway and pushing into the garage. Fuck that's the best shit that's happened to me since 78

Nice one mate. I'll always think of you when I hear this.

You've gotta make this the "Christening" track when you get it up and running.

$100? With a title? That's a steal and a half. Heck, even without a title you could make a decent amount just parting it out. 

well it's a 99 special edition, and it's interior is in immaculate shape, apparently his wife blew the motor up, and he didnt want to mess with it, but it just sat there he said primarily because he's been too lazy to do anything with it, and he didnt want to part it out because of how good the interior is, he said he just put it off, and ive passed it hundreds of times and its never moved from that place, so I just went up and rang the doorbell, asked if he was interested in getting rid of that Jeep and how much and he looked like I just told him he'd won the publishers clearing house or something, he told me if I take it today $100, all he saw was vapor trails, as I just started driving to either pick someone up, or even better, my ex's dad let me use his tow trailer, see the motor I have is one I rebuilt while I was rebuilding my Jeep engine, Jacob the Jacob from this forum has pictures of that fun ordeal I went through last summer, anyways, I got this Jeep V8 motor the same time, and it didnt look like there was anything wrong with it, as it turns out there really wasnt, I mean there was, but it was somehow one of the pistons had fired off center and literally lodged itself sitting sideways, I will look through my pics so I can show you what I mean, but heated it up and pulled the piston, surfaced it and put a new one in, and its just been sitting here, only some of the jeeps are equipped with V8's, and they are difficult to find cause people get them as soon as they hit the salvage yards, dude this was just pure luck, and my tenacity of just going up and asking, these were really nice jeeps, the special editions, oh and it's also full of wasps, they have gotten in back of the side mirrors and just made huge nests, so maybe i'll video myself trying to get those fuckers out tomorrow, gonna have to smoke them out.


On a different note, does anyone know anybody thats ever driven a Jeep Trackhawk? I want one so fucking bad I cant handle it.

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43   PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM  
    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.
