Well, this is interesting.
I think the Javelin is my favorite muscle car.
Vacation is just about ready. I did the Indycar / Pirelli WC races the past two years, but it’ll be nice to go back to doing the Vintage Races this year.
The racing was absolutely fantastic last year, and as long as the weather holds out it should be a great time. Plus I get to try the new lens on things with more than 2 wheels (see below).
I picked up a new lens for the camera last week; a Sigma 150-600 Contemporary. It’s very large.
Well, I made the purchase last night. After much “back-and-forth” over what I wanted to buy (Go cheap with a mazda 3? Fun and a little juvenile with a FoST? Be a boring Grown up and get an Accord?), I decided that I should really get what I wanted.
So, my “summary of payments” showed up from my car insurance and it looks like they’re only going to cover a small portion of my hospital and follow up visits from my accident.
SLS for your time.
As I had previously mentioned, I’ve found myself in the market for a new vehicle. I’ve started to more or less narrow things down and I’ve come up with the top three vehicles that I think would be rather nice, while still being practical and relatively easy on the wallet (both in insurance and fuel)...
So I crashed my Kia Soul over Labor day weekend. 2/10, would not recommend. It performed flawlessly though; no damage to the cage (even on what I’d describe as a 1/3 overlap) and I walked out with some bad bruises and a broken foot. Car is totaled, so I’m expecting to begin the process of negotiating it’s replacement…
I have a lot of love for Road America already, but that was easily one of the best events I’ve been to there. Still going through all my photos, but I managed a few winners that I’ll have to play with when I’m not stuck using Google’s editor. Apparently I got a lovely smudge/scratch/something on my polarizer that I…
I know it’s probably been discussed to death, but the latest episode was the first one so far that didn’t make me want to...
Was it designed specifically with Hamsters in mind?
Since I last frequented these parts, I made the decision to ditch my old, increasingly frustrating job to work at a smaller company.
Well, I decided to interview with another local company to test the waters and because frankly... my current job is frustrating.
Today I’m kicking off my vacation with a trip to Road America for the Pirelli Challenge race.
If you’re not keeping track of Red Bull GRC, you really should be. The racing was great yesterday. Lites action was intense, and the supercars really beat each other up in their finals. 10/10 would attend again and get incredibly sunburned.
I’m planning to be there Sunday for some entertaining racing and to hopefully take some pictures.
I have this kind of weird desire to take an epic road trip. The kind where you drive clear across the United States, staying in campsites and visiting friends along the way... Just see everything that I always planned to but never had the time to do. Finally spend some time west of the Mississippi. See the Pacific.…
