I’ve been keeping my eye out for a deal on full-frame Nikon cameras for a while now and finally found a D700 at a price that was easy to swallow. Stopped on the way home to try it out for the first time. I need to spend more time with the camera to really get used to it, as there are way more functions on this D700…
My Mazdaspeed6 was built in February of 2006, making it 12 years old this month. It doesn’t complain as much as most other 12-year-olds, so I’d say it’s doing a pretty good job.
Bought this Orient watch the other day. Black/red/olive strap from Crown & Buckle. It sorta matches my Miata, right down to the red accent on the second hand/brake calipers.
Here’s the actual article if you’re interested. Pre-1996 vehicles will no longer be required to get emissions tests in Maryland, which seems pretty reasonable to me.
Made a detour into a big empty church parking lot on the way to work this morning for my Speed6's first snownuts. It did real real good.
Wheelerguy requested some photos of some Gr.B cars in Gran Turismo Sport for his birthday, and I was only too happy to oblige. First up, the Toyota 86.
Lancia Delta HF (Integrale??). Not sure which exact model this is, but based on the fender flares I think it’s an Integrale? Regardless, very very cool car to show up to the Lafayette, CO Cars & Coffee yesterday.
Seen as I was leaving the house this morning to head to work. Left Hand Utes is based here in Denver, so I’ve actually seen a few of these on the streets. My neighbor just down the block is going to have some fun with this one I imagine.
Last month I attended the 6 Hours of COTA in Austin. This was my first circuit race experience, so I figured I ought to make it memorable. I decided to shoot photos on my trusty Canon AE-1 SLR. I brought a few different rolls of film and both lenses I own for this camera: a 50mm and a 28mm. Not exactly the ideal…
I’ve qualified on pole and won a race on each day of the limited-time demo so far! Some of this may have to do with the fact that it’s a free demo with lots of yahoos who don’t know how to drive properly.
As seen on my commute this morning.
These are all just from the demo running this week, which is very stingy about giving you cars to use. So despite me playing off-and-on for...most of today, I only have 5 cars in my garage. Looking forward to having the full disc in my hands next week to make use of the full roster of cars and features! I’ve been…
These plastic exhaust surround “heat shields”. My 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 has them, and they seem to be popping up on cars left and right today. When and where did they start? Was the MS6 an early trend-setter?
I moved 1,000 miles from Louisiana to Denver, Colorado for a new job on July 4, 2014. At the time, my only car was my 73k-mile 2002 Mazda Miata. I had planned on buying a third set of wheels for dedicated snow tires and continuing to daily drive the Miata through the winter. But as summer faded away and temperatures…
I’ll be using the stock wheels on my Mazdaspeed 6 for winter duty, so I need to figure out what sort of wheels I want to buy for the summers. Ideal specs:
I just bought my event and airline tickets. With the news of Porsche pulling out of WEC, this is my last chance to see these magnificent LMP1 beasts competing here in America so I figured I’d better follow through.
whodathunk 215 tires wouldn’t mount on an 11" wide wheel??
