Hobbies :)

Recommended Posts

It's ok, I get it :) My sister would appreciate the above hobby, she used do hill climbs, that is before she became pregnant and had her baby.

I love hill walking! :) but have no-one to do it with & don't fancy doing it on my own :(

 

As a child I always wanted a Ford Capri 2.8 Injection. I thought it was the coolest car ever. :lol:  Well I was only 11 years old.

 

But as lao tzu said, the old Ford's are not that bad to maintain. Their biggest problem is rust. And they usually have plenty of that. But spare part are not a big problem. You can, most of the time, use part from other Ford models as well. They have a lot of shared parts.

I remember when I was about 4-5 years old I had 2 small Corgi Ford Capri's with opening bonnets, a black one & a silver one(had clear blue windows) I would always play with them :)

 

 

Anyway, I just bought a new one for my collection! Ford Escort MK3 XR3(needs repaired & that's my special skill :D)

yep ,the engine in mine was a 2.0 capri but it ceased up,so my brother put a 2.0 transit van engine in it and it went like a rocket,but it day last long  about 5-6 months.had to leave it behind to go back to work in wales:(

blimey 25 years ago that,getting old.

some classic cars never get driven anymore,they are practically models(full size),they put em on trailers to preserve em better,you might see them out on a jaunter now and then but they dow use em to go to work in:)

classic cars is a growing buisness,more folks want em as a hobby,and us brits love our cars,if you can learn to restore em you could have a job for life:)

Iv had some experience with real car bodywork, its not just model car's Iv done, I repainted my red Nova black with red glitter paint & it looked stunning in the sun!, I seen someone copied my paint job on their 106 not long after I done my Nova, this was like in 2006

And all this time there's a hobby/interest/activity.. call it what you will, that I totally forgot. How bad of me, lol.

 

I do play Magic: the gathering. Semi-competitive, sometimes in tournaments. I tried a few national tournaments a while ago, tried some qualifiers for international tournaments as well. But because there are no local stores that do tournaments, nor do I want to invest in a lot of cards right now (cause I tend to play other formats than what local game stores usually do), I've resorted to playing almost exclusively online now. I do own a few decks for playing with friends at the kitchen table, but they're hardly competitive and more for the heck of it.

I am not sure I still have anything that qualifies as a hobby since I try to leverage every single skill just to earn money but I enjoy the following:

writing:

Piano (playing and repairing)

juggling

computer graphics

hiking (though I can't really do it any more)

bicycling. (no place to do this anymore, even though I have a fat man seat and fat man tires)

What can you play on the guitar? I'm rubbish at it but can play Day Tripper by the Beatles & a couple of other things :)

If you can teach yourself to read music you can play most anything that you can set before you.  I am studying flamenco a.t.m.

Listening to music is probably my favourite hobby. My playlist is filled with every style from Swedish Swing Hop to Russian Dance Metal (yes its a thing and its good in small doses!) to Ethnic/Oriental Metal. I also play bass guitar and enjoy playing along to the music on my playlist.

 

I also enjoy creating animations and illustrating. I still use flash and I absolutely love using the bone tool to create lifelike movements!

 

When the weather is warmer, I enjoy taking walks to the creek or rocks or anywhere
