Air show at KAFB. F-35 is the star of the static displays by far.
You’ll love the weather they said.
Who says you can’t use a Raptor for work truck stuff?
Racecar spelled backwards is racecar.
Elise first then a few seconds later a Gulf-livery 7 (maybe replica) came the same way. Saw another 7 a bit later (ignore the time stamp my dashcame battery is on the fritz). The snow has finally melted, so there were a lot of sports cars getting exercised in the mountains today.
Happy Friday Oppo - have a review! Some new cars are good cars. A new Kia Rio is not a good new car. But is it a bad new car? I spend the last 4 days in the eastern suburbs of Oakland, California with one investigating.
Rental review coming soon.
Audi R8 V10 Plus: MSRP starting at $194,400. My rental Kia Rio S: MSRP $17,115 with destination.
Count along with Count Head Gaskets. Let’s count Tesla Model 3s currently in the parking lot of a Bay Area Costco that I’m at right now. Ready? One...
Final day of the season here. They groomed last night so I figured I’d get up early to get a few last runs. Unfortunately they groomed wet and the it froze. I looked behind me and didn’t even marks from my skis. Went inside til the sun softened it up more and got a few decent runs in the slush. Had a little fun but…
Wasn’t expecting to come head on with a Tacoma in my lane making a pass this morning. Overtaking in a corner on a narrow, two-lane with no center stripe is a dick move. Even worse, there is nothing on this road in his direction until it dead ends at a ski hill 2 miles up. This crap saved him a minute at most.
Snapped this picture real quick last week and didn’t bother to look at it until just now. I’m pleased with how it turned out.
Who is Caitlin and why does she need to be eaten?
Found this car body in an arroyo at the bottom of a canyon while hiking this afternoon. Didn’t appear to have a frame or drivetrain. How it got here I have no clue. Looks 1940’s but the condition and construction seem much newer... maybe a replica? I’m not too familiar with this era of design - anyone recognize it?
OE pads and rotors on a ‘13 Outback with 85k mostly highway miles. Was going to R&R today ahead of my wife taking it on a 1,200 mile round trip on Thursday. She was complaining of squeaks/squeals. Parts I ordered got delayed and won’t make it in time. Pulled them today to see if I needed to throw some O’Reilly parts…
Audi only makes something like 500 per year of these for the US and this one was just hanging out DOTS while it was hailing. That blue... 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
And with it neighbors coming out of the woodwork to ask if they can borrow tools and/or if I can help them change their oil the minute I pull the jack into the driveway.
There’s 11” of new powder that I’d be staring at out my office window if I went in. I’ll be here instead.
Got a new shell. PSA: The North Face’s “Persian Orange” is very very very orange. Anyway, it’s a Ceptor 3-layer shell. Pretty minimalist but good construction. Has stretchy thumb loops that I’m a big fan of and folds into its hood for storage which is neat. That’s about it for features really. I’m 6’1” 160 lb.…
Couldn’t deal with the brand new plate on a filthy car so I gave it a quick wash. Not great but it looks OK from 10 feet. And way less silly.
