Nice! Twenty-six is a good number.
I really like detailing mine and going to shows. I am not as hard core as I used to be. I would like to go mod crazy, and do some track days. The wife isn’t happy to hear that, so we generally just go carting instead. Although she does like it when both cars are super shiny, and the SS’ wheels are super clean.
Here’s how motivation often works for me: I have two vehicles, and often find myself more motivated to work on whatever I’m actually driving at the time.

It’s weird to use this word in reference to this, but “accountability” (similar to what HHFP said). I have a group of guys that I take a spring & fall backroadtrip with twice a year (for well over a decade).

But now that it’s not my literal backyard, I’m really bad about driving somewhere to then do something (again I’m talking vehicle related activities....track, trails, etc). It… Read more
When I bought my ITR, I had this crazy idea I’d make a bunch of friends in the Honda scene, got all social and go to track days together. I started bulding my ITR specifically for that purpose. Well, not necessarily for the other people, but still thinking I’d enjoy group track days with my Honda ‘friends’. Read more
I ride motorcycles with my dad but I don’t even bother with the car I just use the car to get from A to B. Im honestly prob not even gonna autocross this newer Solara. My car is pretty boring so unless im driving properly quick its not that interesting. I do love road trips though and would like to do some more of… Read more
Well in my family all of us guys like cars. So naturally we go as a group to events, meetups, etc.
