Los Angeles near the Petersen Museum around 4 pm, silver AP1 with a JALOPNIK sticker on the wind deflector. You know who you are.
Did Apple start this nonsense of having someone standing on stage trying to single-handedly brainwash their audience? Only Jobs could pull that off and even he was pretty nauseating if you didn’t live within Apple’s reality distortion field.
I’m taking my mostly car-agnostic wife to the LA auto show and Radwood this weekend. Her Infiniti Q50 lease is up next year and she wants something with more personality that she would love “the way I love my S2000.” “It’s not love,” I replied, “it’s just indulging in a weird automotive fetish.”
“No, you get off my bed.”
Someone really loves themselves some vintage German schteel ...
YouTube recommended a video on cleaning S2000 soft top water drains and I figured I might as well do mine since I’ve never done it. Turns out someone had dropped/left a bunch of loose bolts and nuts in there. I can’t believe I’ve put up with the rattling for all these years ...
I can’t understand why someone would leave a car they cared about parked on the street long term. Besides this Merc, I’ve seen an S2000 and a vintage Alfa that were street parked suddenly appear with catastrophic damage and disappear permanently days later.
We live in a time when people around me are animatedly discussing “superchargers” and I really couldn’t care less.
Me: so how impressive is Rob’s junk?
Normal cars are banned so it’s mostly golf carts here, but it looks like they allow some very compact oddities to run around too.
It’s an illuminated display case for 1:18 diecast models. I’ve had the S2000 for a while but I’ve never stared at it so much until now.
AKA the “I’m getting too old for this” mod. For a road car it’s actually an improvement - the ride quality is miles better, the wheel/tire combo is 4-5 lbs lighter per corner, the tires are cheaper, and it’s easier to get the tail out.
I say this mostly in jest, but ... maybe Raj Nair got booted over the Focus RS. I just find it fishy that Ford is axing their US market cars not that long after dumping their President of North America.
I don’t mind if you park on my street and take a nap. Or even eat dinner. But afterwards there’s a trash can up the street, which you could have used instead of dumping trash all over the street and sidewalk.
Tempted to contact Uber with his license plate number ...
“Put that bow tie on me, I dare you.”
I drove past Laguna Seca yesterday without realizing it. For something of its reputation I would’ve expected its entrance to be much more in-your-face like the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana.
Good thing my car has a tiny gas tank ... I was considering self-harm after the 3rd loop.
Someone taking their museum exhibits out for a drive? This Civic was in shockingly mint condition.
Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato, sorry for the dash cam quality
