Sometimes it’s interesting to get the cheapest deal on a rental car you can. I flew to Kona, HI for a friend’s wedding yesterday, and got the “Manager’s Special” from Hertz for 4 days at the price of $99.
It was worth 3 hours, and I’m still thinking about it.
I’m sorry, but this is the weirdest title I have had show up in my Netflix
So to get to the grocery store I have a left turn that comes extremely close to an electrical pole. Being Japan the turn is of course very tight. How tight? Tight enough that the stop sign and line are a good distance back from the pole to give cars turning right or coming straight across the intersection space to…
The only (used) Exiga GT for sale on the island was a u-turn away from me as I was driving home from a meeting. So of course I made a u-turn.
Behold, the Blade Master G:
NSX for your time.
A new year has me thinking about what car I should consider if my family grows by one. Sure I could consider a Freed, Voxy, MPV or something similar, but if I have to have an extra row for the kids carpool shouldn’t I think more exciting than bland...

The most enjoyable part of the experience is the insanely long lines for the automatic car washes after a typhoon.(Personally, I have zero desire to sit in a line of cars blocking a busy street for 20- 30 minutes, but it seems like most…
Public Service announcement:
Sorry, there is only the one photo at the stoplight. For some reason this guy stopped at replacing the rear bumper:
So my son turned 3 today, and Grandpa&Grandma gave him a box of cars they picked up at an auction. Should I be posting better pictures and trying to figure out if anything needs saved? or just assume there’s nothing since there are no boxes? (I think they said they bought something like 150 in the box.
So as far as I know I’ve only seen one celebrity (not the crappy car), and it was 7 years ago according to facebook:
Found these at the mall. I’m wondering if they are rentals.
So my neighbor’s little classic Honda disappeared about a year ago, and was replaced with a large scooter, and one of the kei car “Spacia” clones. Now the tarps are back in time for summer? rainy season? typhoon season?
