This good boy showed up dressed for the occasion at our corporate turkey trot yesterday and ran 2 miles with his owner. Then he was a very tired boy.
They are building a large new location down here in San Antonio. Looks like a CarMax competitor that started in Denver and is now expanding out. The inventory and prices on their website are pretty decent. Should I check this place out for a few test drives when it opens?
OMG turbocharger keychains!
So while I was stuck in this 777 for 9 hours today, things happened back at Casa Headgaskets. My wife got a flat tire in the Outback so she decided to teach herself how to drive my car. This is good thing and I’m happy she took the initiative. I’m a little nervous about the final text she sent about it:
Just saw this poor abused stray Twingo on the street. Poor thing deserves better.
It’s fine. Everything’s fine!
Just saw this rental supercar trifecta down on the street. Sorry for crap photo, I was halfway through a 3 mile run and took it mid-stride. Anyway, Carrera S Cabrio, California non-T, and Godzilla: Whatcha got?
First time I’ve seen one in the wild that wasn’t parked. Nobody is going to mistake it for a Ferrari V8 or anything, but BMW did a good job getting a deep loud noise that doesn’t sound buzzy or strained out of the 3 cylinder motor.
Red diesel wagon. Dear Mercedes, can we get this in the US please? Like ASAP. K thx.
The Coca-Cola Freestyle machines should just block out certain options. Also I just realized while I wait to change planes here at DFW that I still have 13 more hours in the air before Monday. I very possibly am going to lose my mind.
Up in the sky? Up in the sky.
Avis’s email system just sent me five confirmations within an hour span and somehow my red Optima morphed into a black Rogue. I was actually kind of looking forward to checking out the Optima for a week Rogue... not so much.
A nice postman just dropped off my pre-order.
Day 4 and I’m still not used to it. It’s been a while since I’ve driven a Suburban but I don’t recall it being nearly as difficult. Goes back to Avis tomorrow. Overall this truck is a good value for what Ford charges, but I don’t like it all that much. I’m glad I got to try it it for the price of an intermediate,…
Reserved an “intermediate” from Avis. I guess since I had a Camaro last time thru ABQ that’s what they had for me. But when they saw three 6’2” dudes in my group they panicked and gave me the biggest thing they had: a Ford Expedition EL. It’s roughly the size of a city block yet the EcoBoost moves it disturbingly…
I hope they didn’t pay much for this ad...
It’s fall in Texas and that means the tarantulas are getting more active. Saw three while walking the dogs yesterday. I made a slow mo video. Also, anyone else not seeing notifications on mobile? They are there if I touch the menu but the little bubble isn’t lighting up when the page loads.
I may be dead by 10AM.
So that Chevy SS in very rare Alchemy Purple that I saw the other day wearing paper tags... apparently a co-worker bought it! I work on a very big campus so I’ll probably never meet the owner, but at least I get to see it daily now.
