Going to England in late June and Goodwood Festival of Speed is smack in the middle of the trip.
Over the weekend, got bored on the snowy Friday night and made this, a replica of the oettinger 500R. Any other oppos do forza designs?
Oh craigslist, you never cease to fail with the idiocy. The gall of some people though. *quick vent and story inside*
made of unobtanium, this is the golf r500, with 2.5 tfsi engine. R400? Psh, be gone peasants!
Nice 3.0CL with appropriate license plate. Nevermind my mirror.
Old English ford snapshot after a fender bender found in the girlfriend’s. Let’s play identify that old ford for posterity sake?
Traded in 2010 Jetta TDI and picked up a new 2015 GTI. (flexed loyalty bonus + dealership bonus).
And “Cars you didn’t know existed”
And managed to snap a photo. Recognized it from the dumb stickers i added to it in its later years.
Details about the car:
my 2010 jetta tdi is apparently a dirty dub.
I had a good one. I bought supplies to give the cars a proper wash (buckets, sponges, microfiber towels, car soap, claybar kit, nanowax spray) and gave them some love. Pictured, the gf’s v70 xc that needed a good wash with the vw waiting for its turn. Both are looking real glossy now.
So the girlfriend returned from her travels in England. You may remember a post previously of DOTS of SE England wherein it was explained she was traveling for family emergency not far from the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
So g/f is on travel to visit her family in SE England. Short notice family emergency so I did not attend. Her family lives about an hour from Goodwood. Because she’s a sweet girlfriend and knows I am interested in any cars she might see, she sends me photos of any she spots. Thus far:
Sure it’s been done before. But that’s what makes it so good.
vinyl wrapped some interior parts. swapping out beltline trim bits from foreground to background.
A standing desk for the girlfriend. Aspen desktop with pine 2x4 legs. All stained with driftwood-colored stain. Super easy 1-day project. Bought the wood on saturday afternoon, chopped it at work to length (desktop came cut to length already). Sanded everything sunday, stained, drilled, and screwed all together on…
That color. So good.
