Some guy had rent-to-own wheels on his car. The rental company came and repo’d them during Wichita’s largest car show of the year. The result made for some pretty fun photo ops.
Because I feel like having another avenue to bitch about how much my life sucks here’s the context for my current situation.
GS300, IS300 Sportcross, SC400, SC400. Decent lineup. Drove my buddys corn-fed SS 1LE on mickey thompson street radials around a bit now I hate all my cars because they don’t have a slick 6 speed behind a racious V8 with a full exhaust. Downshifting on the highway and spinning tires is incredibly amusing.
Gave the Sportcross a little attention this weekend. Replaced a rusted-off stud that holds on the rear spoiler so now it no longer rattles, heard a buzzing when listening to music and investigated and discovered that the rear passenger tail light, adjacent to the OEM subwoofer, was loose because the nuts had all…
Took some pics of an Arteon the other day.
Did a little lightpaint last night.
This is the best photo set I have ever done.
DB7 manual. My goodness. Made some fantastic noises and was incredibly comfortable to sit in and a ridiculously solid-feeling machine. Ergonomics were absolute dogshit but... I could live. Super cool detail: the carpet and piping on the seats is color-matched to the paint.

Here in a year when I’m able to pay cash for one I’d like to pick up an ‘05-’09 Mustang GT coupe with a manual. Blue, preferably. The 3-valve mod isn’t a screamer but if a manual RWD coupe with 300hp isn’t enough for you to have some fun with then the problem is you, not the car. I fell in love with the…
Bought a cheap radio from walmart and installed it in my VetterSound fairing. Absolutely glorious.
A friend of mine was able to borrow the first e-tron allocation in Wichita for a day to review and he let me have a go in it. I had been somewhat removed from the news the past couple of weeks so I knew basically nothing about it going in other than “Audi Crossover But Electric”. My instructions were “Make sure it’s…
It’s weird having a bike that actually works. Gave it a good clean today and went out riding. Pretty cool being able to stow my jacket, gloves, and helmet in the trunk and saddlebags and not have to worry about them. Also keep some detailing supplies and a tire pressure gauge in there as well. Handy dandy.
Went out and took some footage of the high waters in Wichita. For those that don’t know, Wichita was built in essentially a wetlands. Prior to the construction of our current flood management infrastructure the “Big Ditch” the city regularly found itself under 2-4 feet of water between Ridge Rd and Hillside. Thanks to…
Who knew a paint job could be so transformative?
My favorite generation of Supra. The owner bought it sitting for 10 years, got it running, and loves it so much he doesn’t really want to stop driving it long enough to fully restore it.
Cleaning out a nasty used-car engine bay and door sills. Spent 45 minutes on this and I have immense respect for the people who do this for a living, though I’m sure they have more than an old microfiber and some water to work with.
