Back in mid 2018 I went to a meetup with some SoCal Oppos (WrongWheelDrive/Spambot2002). Took the film camera out and got some shots. I like the way they turned out!
You know you need another one...
when I emailed my parents, who just recently bought a 2017 C63 AMG droptop, about a “Fun Mercedes event you could do” after finding this post on Opposite Lock no less.
So I have a 2017 Golf R, and the electric power drivers seat is a bit loose... Not enough to be dangerous; who knows maybe it is, but on some shorter stops and harder turns feels like the seat is giving a little bit like I’m rocking forward.
On Labor day, a few friends and I went to Buttonwillow Raceway in So-Cal for 10 hours trackdaybruh. We got up at 5:30am, got some Subway, which to my surprise was open that early, then headed to the track for setup/tech inspection. For this track event, the configuration was set to one of the longest ones, #1.
So it’s been a while since I last posted something about my car/bike here. And lo, a new bike has blessed me with its presence!
Hey Socal oppos, saw this today on BAT:
Heading to work on my Ducati Monster, about to get on the 405 onramp and a cop pops out from behind me... Thought I would get a ticket for my fender eliminator or integrated tail-light.
...3 other Oppos (SpamBot, Wrong Wheel Drive, and CaptDale) and I went to the Petersen Museum for a meet-up. Usually we do a spirited cruise through the canyons, but, a rare and mysterious phenomenon showed up that week/weekend; rain...
There were lots of cool ones.
Was at my carwash guy today in Marina Del Rey, CA; and low and behold, there were many cool cars. Turns out the Lancia and the Jag were owned by a car flipper, so maybe I’ll see more cool cars as time goes on!
I’m doing a school type track day, finally! It’ll be on a 2018 BMW S1000RR on the Streets of Willow! Doing it with these guys, hoping to learn a lot:
Wondering how long it took you guys, for those that ordered them, to get the Oppo stickers from Wurst Case. I ordered mine 9 days ago; haven’t seen them yet.
So I’ve been listening to the Everyday Driver podcast, these guys made films about M3s and Porsches among other things, and they’ve brought up a track day event up at Laguna Seca. That got me interested in doing one.
buying a car you didn’t truly consider until 3 weeks before buying it. Cause, that’s what I did. I was on the hunt for a new car because I was tired of driving my 2008 Mercedes CLK550 and wanted something with: more utility, better mpg, and something that was more modern. Here are all of my previous modes of transport.
There were Ferraris, and it was good. There was also a Bugatti exhibit, and this was there; as well as some nice Jags and McLarens.
That is all.
My garage. Parking is tight, but both of my VAG vehicles fit ;)
Well, well, well. The time has finally come and I found a car that I really like. And what I bought is... some backstory.
