Who all is going?
After spending 27 days offshore. Thank god. Pic related: I have a ton of TV on my DVR to catch up on, including I think 2 F1 races along with some DTM and Indy stuff. Also, I cannot wait for my first sweet, sweet beer.
The deer story reminded me about one of the first times I was ever on track.
Bombing around COTA
So last Saturday I ran a track day at Texas World Speedway with their Performance Driving School. A good time was had by all.
Just checked the weather, and highs are around 98. God bless Texas. I'll be doing a two day performance driving school there with a sprained ankle (sprained it last Friday). Good thing it hurts less to work a clutch than to walk. This will be my first time on this track. Expect track car porn when I return.
This past weekend I did an HPDE at NOLA Motorsports with NASA, and it was kick ass. Warning: this is long, but has car porn sprinkled throughout.
That pretty thing in the bay to the right is a 2011 GT500, and is my grandfather-in-law's. To make a long story short, he broke his back and will be in a rehab facility for a bit, and have to wear a huge brace for 4-6 months. The Shelby is his daily driver, and has 69k on the odometer. Our family thinks he is going to…
My parents did a wine tour through Argentina a couple months ago, and hit up a lot of really cool small wineries. They saw this cool bottle and knew they had to get it for me. How kick ass is a wine with a Porsche rally car! And it tasted delicious.
Just opened this bad boy up. It's delicious! Very nice and spicy. Also, how the hell do I rotate my picture on Android chrome haha
Check out what I bought for my wife last week: a Springfield EMP 9mm. We tested out a couple 9's the week before and she loved this one. Of course it's the most expensive one we shot haha. We put around 350 rounds through it Friday. We had some light strikes at the beginning, but they seemed to stop happening later,…
Driving home from lunch on Thursday, my A/C quit blowing cold in my SVT Focus, and just started blowing hot air. I pulled into my driveway, and I could hear the car making a weird squealing noise. Here is a video. You can kind of hear the squealing noise, and you can see the A/C clutch freaking out at the bottom and…
In my way too early search for my wife and I's next car, I've started looking at the IS-F.
I promised myself I would go because of the impending closure, and because it is only an hour away. I know as soon as I go I am going to regret not going to it before this.
So for our one year anniversary, my wife and I are going to take a trip to Costa Rica. I plan on driving around the Carribean side of the country, and am going to rent a car from Wild Rider.
And I plan on doing the Dream Racing Ferrari 430GT experience. It's expensive but I can't think of any other way for me to get into a Ferrari GT race car. Has anyone else done this?
This rig I'm on has internet so slow during the day I can barely log onto my email. It is very very painful. So I won't be able to watch videos or stream anything for a couple weeks. Right now I can't even log on to check my paycheck. First world problems.
I tried searching but couldn't find it. Can anyone link me to the article about doing the Caddy test drive and getting 100 bucks for it? My buddy sent me the link, so I want some input before I sign up. Thanks!
So I have found 2 professional photographers that took pictures of my car at COTA, and I want to get one printed on canvas for my office. I just wanted to get some opinions on which one I should choose.
So Oppo, after quite a bit of research, I've decided to start trying to track down a 5.0 Coyote engine to swap into my '08 Mustang.
