So... I love this more than a legitimate Countach. This is a 1986 Fiero that has been stretched and bequeathed a 1:1 replica fiberglass body molded from an actual Countach, with an 80s IROC Camaro engine dropped in mated to an OEM Pontiac 4 speed. OEM Lamborghini wheels, glass, and paint. The fit and finish makes for…
Here’s a collage, in order, of all my cars throughout the years since 2014 when I got my Civic.
No better way to get used to a new car than a 3 hour drive home. Picked up this 2008 Mazda Miata PRHT yesterday for the princely bargain of $5500 from a nice lady in Oklahoma City. It drives perfectly and I am ecstatic. Here’s the nitty gritty:
Few shots from Rallyx. I was racing in the RWD class so I couldn’t shoot the RWD cars, sadly.
Video of my fastest lap in the IS300 at Rallycross. Probably my last rallycross in this car. My mechanical sympathy can’t handle the beating that this car gets on these courses. I utterly nuked a sway bar end link. Unfortunately this is a dirty lap as you can clearly hear where I thunk over a cone. The beeping is the…
Went out to rural Kansas and did some shooting. Doesn’t much look like Kansas but... there ya go. The light painting shot is probably my favorite thing I’ve ever taken.
This is, I am told. The definition of insanity. So let’s do the same thing again and see if it works this time.
Final thoughts on the new 2019 Kia Soul after 1,300 miles in one:
Buffer Mazdaspeed Protege for your time.
What are your thoughts on buying a 120k mile Fiat 500 Abarth from a friend who has had it for the last 40k miles and is selling due to financial difficulties? Wastegate actuator has been replaced. Car has been maintained. Minor aesthetic difficulties, rear seat removed (but still present) and a catless downpipe means…
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.
