I lucked out and did not require a car in my college years (walk-able city) so I jumped straight into questionable choices.
Unpopular opinion, the new 935 tribute looks much worse than the 997 based Kremer Racing K3R conversion. The 991 front looks great but did they just phone in the rear!?
What is it?
Well, it finally happened. After eight years of talking my girlfriend’s (now wife) ear off about cars she progressed to on-track driving in her own Miata (MT). Safe to say we have come a long way from the Toyota Prius and Hyundai Elantra starter cars.
Spent the last few days heckling dealers about the oft-rumored BMW M2 CS, i.e. the creme de la creme tarted up throwback to BMWs performance past. The situation looks grim. A few dealers seem to pretend the car does not exist and will not discuss it until a formal release, others have an established wait-list…
Wife jumped on the slow car fast bandwagon with a new Miata RF - MT, garage has grown to include the Z4M, 228i and Mazda addition. Gonna be a good summer! Club spec with no options

Converting my wife into a car enthusiast was the best and worst possible gift to our relationship. On one hand she engages in thoughtful conversation about anything car related and enables my hobby, on the other she is no longer willing to dutifully drive an econobox.
Last we met; I had racked up 7500 of my own miles on the 2007 BMW Z4 M coupe and burned $4500 of hard earned money. Fresh service, fresh tires and a new alignment. The car was ready for smooth sailing and a summer in the canyons.
By late summer of 2015, the trusty 50K mile FR-S I had driven for the first three years of my professional life was feeling long in the tooth and I hungered for a new experience. For 2016 I vowed to spend less time agonizing over paint cleanliness, nonessential modifications and couch racing forum junkies. Give me…
The king is dead, long live the king! FR-S is sold after 49,500 miles and tons of smiles. The empty garage space didn’t last long, enter the newcomer. 2007 Z4M Coupe
I first saw this ad in the theatre prior to seeing Mad Max, another adrenaline fueled adventure. Not a huge Miata fan, but man ohh man did this hit me right in the feels.
I have a thing for blue Ferraris. Holy hell is this one clean example.
Occasionally you walk out after a long day at work or late gym session and the light hits everything just right. Always puts a smile on my face.
If you don’t listen to The Smoking Tire on the regular, I suggest chiming in this week for episode 170 where the guys bring Craig Liberman on the show. It is a hilarious dialogue and diatribe into the genesis of the import scene in the USA, how Fast and The Furious started out and one man’s evolution of car ownership.
What are people thoughts on these cool cars and company? I keep seeing a dark blue Noble M400 on the weekends, sounds the business! Twin turbo v6 (v8 in the m600), manual 6 speed transmission...
Today was a good day... More potato photos where these came from.
The FR-S odometer ticked over to 40,000 miles this morning. I feel I am just beginning to enjoy everything this car has to offer. As my first car, it has been quite an experience.
So you've been watching too many Chris Harris on Cars and \Drive+ video and think you can create an exhilarating cut of your weekend drive? Well folks it ain't as easy as it looks, but you don't need a drone nor an entire support crew to make it work. Below is a few pieces of advice I have learned first hand in trying…
This past weekend my girlfriend rented me a 2012 911 Carrera S (MT) for my 26th birthday. Holy hell was it a great twenty four hours. Potato pics for now, GoPro videos and impressions to come later.
