Tried my hand at some (very) basic video editing.

***RE-POST for the morning crowd. :) ***

Take a gander if you’d like something vaguely crappy yet calming to watch this evening - my skills aren’t the best, haha!

This was taken from my dashcam on Thursday morning on my morning commute to one of the places I work. The video starts in the middle of Pleasant Street in…

DOTS - Polar Opposites Edition

Caught these two in the last few weeks around Lunenburg and Mahone Bay!

The first is a local garage and was in the lot when I was getting my wheel bearing replaced - it’s a JDM import 1994-or-so Toyota Celica GT-Four ST205....I’ve seen it around a few times, very cool car! The owner also has a black JDM-import…

The Foglightening - THE FINAL CHAPTER

Back in July, I decided I wanted to get in on modding my car with the first major ‘mod’ I’ve ever done with it. I used to have fog lights on my 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5TS wagon and found them really useful in the oft-present fog and poor winter driving conditions we get here in Nova Scotia, so I placed an order for an…

Just got back from a local garage...

...getting my driver’s side front wheel bearing replaced and the ball joint replaced there as well. Both the original parts after 145,000kms of faithful service.

The cost? $384.00 CAD......maybe I am crazy but that seems somewhat expensive? I’m not a mechanic, so maybe I am not understanding the amount of work…

DOTS - Lifestyles Center Parking Lot Edition

Two interesting spots while I was in town today! One of my local towns has a ‘Lifestyle Center’ which has the town swimming pool, arena/concert space and library in it. I had to pop in there to the library earlier today and caught these in the parking lot!

First up, on my way back to my car was a lifted 2005 or so…

Unicorn sighting, and also tourists from New Jersey don't know how intersections work...

Saw this in Lunenburg yesterday! Pardon the crappy pic, I only saw it out of the corner of my eye as I went past and my dashcam caught it on the far right edge - Mitsubishi iMIEV! When’s the last time any of you saw one! I’ve seen this same one once in the past, but it’s the only one I’ve ever seen!

Oppo, what is making a noise on my car?

EDIT - An addition - had my brother walk beside the car as I drove it slowly tonight, he says it’s coming from the front wheels he thinks (particularly the front-right. We were by a fence as well, so it echoed back into the car for me to hear a bit more clearly....sounds more like a light metal scraping actually....?

Today was my birthday, post classic FIATs and Eastern Bloc weirdness! :P

Pretty low-key birthday - it was 40C with humidity here today, which is uncommonly hot for our neck of the woods (summer average temps are usually like 28C here).

I just puttered around home and went out to dinner with my twin brother (whose birthday it obviously also is) and a good friend of ours. :)
