I took my youngest son to the local manufacturer auto show this weekend. Lots of drooling over the M2, RS5, Cayman GTS, and an R8. Nissan had the prime position by the entrance, and you know what they had?
This is even the ultra-desirable V8 model.
“Hey dad, you remember that CO2 dragster event at school we signed up for?”
Driving back from the local ski place today. My life is really great right now, but this demonstrates that there is always room for improvement. This guy is always there, probably laughing at all the trucks on 33’s with MTFU stickers in the parking lot.
This is Peak Mall Parking.
Ironically I’m on foot. Oh well.
Nothing says dignity like being a lotto and caffeine-shot dispenser. This is like seeing the old guy delivering pizzas. Better fate than Oldsmobile I guess...
Surprisingly, not Trump related.
If these good boys don’t make you smile, maybe we shouldn’t be friends. Have a nice week everyone.
And I bagged one.
Pop culture has moved on without me. I’m ok with that, but occasionally I see something that piques my curiosity. For example, this decal:
It looks better in photos than in real life, but hopefully my day job will keep me from having to make it as a dry wall installer. Next I need a workbench and some better lighting. I’m still undecided on whether I want to do something with the floor- maybe one of those acrylic or polyamide coatings, and would…
My mom drove up this past week, and surprised me with a dozen boxes of my dad’s books. My older brothers got his tools, but that’s ok. He and I and didn’t have a good relationship until near the end, but he loved reading and that was one of our points of connection.
Montana in particular. I have cross-stitching imprints on my butt. 3275.7 miles later I have arrived at my new home. Highlights include the Little Bighorn memorial and finding that when I leave my wife and youngest son unsupervised we get a new cat.
From Maryland to Rapid City, so far. Detour to Moline to pay homage to the John Deere headquarters- my dad worked for Deere for most of his life, so I basically grew up in his shop and this was a highlight for me. Cool stuff so far:
Then what kind of shoe is this?
In June I am escaping the east coast. My new-to-driving 16 year old son and I are packing up 2 dogs and taking our covered wagon West. It is actually a Honda Crosstour, but close enough. Since we’ll have the dogs, we won’t be able to hit every highlight on the way, but I was hoping to hear some Oppinions on things we…
After 4 years of roughing it with no parking, I bought a garage! I’ll probably have to spend the first week hanging curtains, pictures, and such (since there appears to be a house included in the deal), but then I want to finish the garage to make it a usable shop. I need the Oppo hive mind to answer a few questions:
I remember the XR4Ti as being a pretty cool car. That bubble was burst today when I saw one for the first time in years- what a piece of dung! Were the 80’s so bad that this passed for a cool car?!
