Had a great time at the recent Spring Cruise in Vancouver? Or bummed you couldn’t make it? Have I got good news for you: I’m proposing a Fall Oppo meet in Portland, and everyone’s invited! (Final repost, for weekday crowd.)
Lovely little crapcan. I think the oldest Justy I’ve seen. Surely oldest-looking
My V50 took home the trophy for Only Car to Break Down on the 2019 Spring PNW Cruise: it refused to start on Sunday morning because the steering lock had jammed. What follows is the tale of everything I had to do to get to the point where I feel comfortable driving the car again.
I love how many small 2-door Japanese 4x4s you can find in Portland. This is one I’m not familiar with; did it become the Swift later?
I’ll post a full writeup tomorrow, but the short story is that I no longer feel nervous driving my Volvo around.
I shot this old Buick a few weeks back but didn’t get around to posting it. It lives a few blocks away from me, and does move (though not often). It’s in pretty great shape apart from the bump on the front right fender. The interior looks fantastic.
I had no idea VW made a convertible that wasn’t a beetle. This is quite fetching.
Michelin Pilot Sports, on the recommendation of CR & some oppos (particularly AMG Tech). I’ve only driven them a few miles but they are noticeably quieter than the Goodyears that were on before. The Cruise should give me a little opportunity to see how they do in something other than boring conditions.
This will show them that their hurting their own pageviews by continua—HEY GET OUT I TOLD YOU NOT TO LOOK AT POSTS
This photo matches the PCB photos in the swedespeed thread taken by the guy who first got this solution working. Now I know for sure this will work with my stereo.
Predictably enough, the “couple hours” I thought it would take to transfer my circuit over to the proto boards and add relays ended up being closer to five, so that’s all I managed to do over the weekend.
I found this MG last week. These things press two of my biggest buttons: they’re small and they have round headlights. I hope I get to take one for a spin someday.
After verifying my I2C communication primitives, programming the audio chip to convert an AUX signal into the stereo’s internal format was a matter of plug & chugging through the data sheet. That means I’ve finished stage two of Project RAUX Box!
This is an old Volvo, right? I’m pretty sure, but not certain. Looks lovely no matter what it is.
Though it’s been hard to find much time for it, I have been making slow progress on Project RAUX Box. Putting the circuit together required ordering a few more things and then fumbling through all my mistakes on the hardware side, but now I have managed to seize control of this audio chip!
Who doesn’t like small two-door Japanese SUVs?
I found this while walking Ravna around a new neighborhood earlier today. I heard some folks around here like this sort of thing.
