Actually you are half right on teh Hot Rod scene. We are about to open a 1/4 track, hopefully it does not go down the shitter like the other we had.

Click on link and see some HR from the ELP area.

Good for ELP.

I wonder how fast some of the low riders out there are going to be? I know they can't corner for shit. I took a ride in one about a year after I lived there and it scared the hell out of me. Low and slow is the only way to go in those things.

Did some in/out processing at Ft Bliss....got a out a bit in El Paso and thought it was alright. Seemed to be the type of area that you make it what it is. I did not get bothered, but I did not get to go across the border either.

That's all it is man. A huge party town. If you don't enjoy that...then El Paso sucks.

Great American Land and Cattle Company for burgers. Some of the best I've ever had except for the ones at Gasoline Alley when it was open.

Joe Willy's in Rockwall is pretty good.

Have a tamale at Gussies for me please.

Dam I'm gonna have to go to Carmona's today. It won't be the same but it'll have to do.

Ah State Line. That's where my rehersal dinner was. If I remember right they had homemade bread and ice cream.

I tried to eat that steak special one time at Cattleman's and got about 1-1/2 pounds away. I couldn't eat for two days after that. In fact I never went back after that. Was that 5 or 7lbs?

Kiki's was also one of my favorites but I heard its gone downhill in the last so many years.

There was an Italian joint in Five Points that was really good....veal parmigian (sp) yummm.

Don't bring home the Gussies, brag about it and not expect to have your home broken into.

Well I just got back in town. Had a blast! Ate Chicos a couple times! Didn't get to go to Cattlemans or Stateline. I did however go to Kiki's. It was really good. But yes...you're right...it's not the same that is was a few years ago. The italian joint you talk about it the Italian Kitchen. That's some REALLY good food! Didn't have enough time to do all that I wanted to do but I plan on making more trips over there. It was nice to see my family and the city!

I went through El Paso once about 20 years ago. After seeing it, I decided that if Mexico was even remotely similar, then I never wanted to visit it.

Well if you grow up there, as I did, that place holds a special place in your heart. Most people just don't understand it.

True.

I moved out there in 75 and driving in I swore I wouldn't live there long. No trees on the mountians etc. There's a beauty in the desert that just can't be explained. People out there were really friendly more so than any other city that size I ever lived in. I still can't believe I lived there for 15 years.
I left in 1990 and moved out west.

That's exactly what I'm talking about. I seriously think that El Paso is truly a beautiful city. Amongst the mountains, the desert, and the history I find it a gorgeous part of the country.

It was real hard to listen to my family try to convince me to move back. Since I am recently single they seem to think I have nothing more keeping me here in Dallas. But I honestly just enjoy Dallas and all the big city has to offer!

It's never the same when you go back, kind of like the wrecked car thing.

The history...who was the guy always on the news that knew everything about El Paso and New Mexico? His stories about the wild western days were fasinating and well researched. I've seen him do a couple of bits on the Dicovery channel as well.

My motto when I lived there was that I could make more money by accident than I could at work on purpose. Side work kept me busy at least 20 weekends a year.

Yeah that whole wrecked car thing is the exact reason I choose to not move back. I just know in my heart that it won't be the same.

Oh and by the way the guys name is Leon Metz. And he was a bad ass when it comes to El Paso history!

Ok so this statement is pretty damn contradictory because as luck would have it I am actually moving back to El Paso next week.

I am doing it for several reasons which include to help my grandparents as well as go back to school. I am really gonna miss the Dallas area. And I sure as hell hope to move back here as soon as life will allow me to. To all that I know on this board...God bless. Many of you have my number. So be sure and keep in touch. I plan to visit this place as often as financially possible.

I'm right there with you. I miss Dallas like hell. However realistically I am gonna be here for a while. It will give me a chance to go back to and finish school. If all goes well I will be sitting real pretty when it's all said and done.
