I’ve been a busy man but haven’t been on in a while. How has everyone been? It’s been warm here and I’ve taken the Honda out several times.
Woke up feeling a bit sore as I went hard in the paint(literally, I think, I was playing basketball) at the ymca Thursday and then ran strong all week on the treadmill.
Grabbed this one before the Turkey Trot 5k this morning.
Every other month a local European shop does a cars and coffee. These are much smaller than the ones that Harpers Auto Square(Knoxville’s Porsche, Audi, Acura, Infiniti, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, Volkswagen, and Fiat dealer) puts on two or three times a year.
Just finished my first month at the new job!
So I just wrapped up my first full week at my new job. I moved from automobile sales to Outside Sales. My undergraduate degree was in marketing and sales, so this was where I wanted to be. I sort of went off course for ages 22-30 (law school), but I’m happy to be on track.
I just accepted an offer at a small community paper in their ad sales department! I will miss selling Mazdas, but there isn’t much growth potential for me at my dealership.
So as some of you all may or may not know, I am big Takuma Sato fan, so this weekend was a HUGE deal. Here are a bunch of photos I took at the event:
There are times when you gaze upon your significant other and you think “I’ve done well”. I frequently have those moments with my beautiful girlfriend, but today was the first day I had one with my Mazda 3. It’s surprising since it’s my daily, that I bought to sip gas and be comfortable in while my Honda S2000 relaxes…
Just purchased some of this:
Spent the day yesterday under the Honda. Changed the transmission fluid and differential fluid. Not difficult work, but I feel like I was in a car wreck. Sore all over. Maybe us millennials really are that soft?
I hope to do a sappy post this week talking about my late father who sparked and nurtured my passion for the car hobby. In the meantime, post S2000's, rx-7s and C4 corvettes as you see fit.
What brand, in what car, and why do you like it?
I typically don’t care for heavily modified S2000's. But this is nice.
The rare Maserati K900. The owner had Maserati badges on the steering wheel and on the hood, but the wheel centers had the “K” logo.
As a new year approaches, I realize that we move further and further from our youth. As someone born in the late 1980s, the cars I grew up with are starting to really show their age. As we move further and further away from the 1990s and 2000s, we are able to look at the designs and analyze how well they have held up.
So I was out with the lady, running errands. What did we happen across? Another AP2!
For me it was an exhaust heat-shield working itself loose from my 1994 integra.
Just makes car photos so good.
