The company I work for is hosting a Christmas Party tomorrow night and they’re asking for everyone to bring toy donations to go to a good cause. Not really wanting to spend money on new toys, I’ve decided to give those kids a cool present they may appreciate: old un-opened Hot Wheels from nearly a decade ago! Two…
[Update: I went back, looked under the passenger-front corner where it had taken a hit, and the frame is slightly bent. NOPE. And that ends that!]
Miatas, Nationals-winning Lotus Elise XP-class autocross car, Aerovault trailer #01, and cool cars from yesterday’s autocross.
Three other local SCCA autocrossers and myself took our cars (3 Miatas and the Avalanche) to this event which is 50% car show and 50% BBQ contest sampling. I don’t any any pics of the BBQ but one of those contestants was DAMN GOOD.
I got nothing, enjoy the pics!
It doesn’t matter if you race Logano clean for all of the race, he raced you dirty in the last corner on the last lap. Stop letting people walk over you and get aggressive. You threw it all away.
I have no idea if you’re in the market for one, but since you’re looking at E46s...well, here’s an E36. It’ll be for sale in SC.
I actually know the owner of this Roush through autocrossing and he’s a nice fellow in person but his Facebook posts...damn, man, they better be paying you for these tagged posts. Like, EVERY car-related post of his has ludicrous-amounts of tags on it.
There’s taking a picture of your computer screen with your phone...and then there’s taking a picture of an actual photograph of “your” car. Bonus points for being really grainy and giving us a glimpse of that bar. Price is acceptable to low CP in my book.
Hide your kids, hide your wife, hide your cars!
OF COURSE YOU FU**ING WANT ONE! The hardtop alone can be resold for $1k!
I don’t care if you’re being tailgated and they’re flashing LED high-beams at you. Brake-checking them isn’t going to improve the situation. If anything, it’ll probably cause them to escalate their road rage. In this day and age who knows how short tempers are to pulling out a gun and getting shot or rammed off the…
TL;DR: random person trusts random people from internet, meets said people deep in mountains, doesn’t get harmed and has a fun time. Thank you for hosting this, Ike!
It was better than watching IMSA. I haven’t been that tense for that many laps in a long time!
I dropped the oil pan plug into the bucket of hot oil! Luckily, I let the car sit for an hour after arriving at the shop so it didn’t leave any burns on my hand but it was still very uncomfortable feeling around for that pesky bolt!
...because I never know when I’ll casually find something rare in the least likely of places! I found this M2 Machines chase Beetle a Walmart nearby the site where I autocrossed today and taught a 16 year-old girl advanced car control (in her Honda Ridgeline) on Saturday. It’s been about 2 or 3 years since I’ve…
Ike’s Oppo Meet at Tail of the Dragon is in exactly a month and a day. As far as I know, only 5 or 6 people have signed on, not including Ike. I’ve already put down money and days off for this so I’m fully committed, but I’m just unsure what the turnout is going to be like or what’s in-store when we get there. I’m…
Having all the major players minus Truex Jr. taken out allowed for a very exciting finish! Underdogs versus the reigning champ...and an underdog finally got their first win! At Daytona too! I was rooting for Kahne as well because my friend is a huge Kahne fan. It was a nail-biter for the last 40 laps, wondering when…
Happy 4th of July!
