Seiko 62MAS reissue, in blue with the bracelet off a black one. I’m seriously considering selling every non-Seiko watch I own—none of them sing to me the way the Seikos do.
Seent in a fancy Ginza bookstore.
Nissan made one of those futuristic Vision concepts for Gran Turismo, clearly based on the GT-R’s design language. Then they put it in a window in Tokyo, where I saw it. Extremely red. Neat taillights. I don’t think they’ll let me drive it.
Old Toyota Century, new Toyota Century, both with chauffeurs waiting for their owners to finish shopping.
I’ve just been lurking, like this:
I have had an offer accepted on a house equipped with a double car hole. I mean, it comes with a house attached to it too, but what’s important here is that I’m very excited to join Zoidberg and the rest of you lot in car hole ownership (in a month or two).
Today’s is particularly automotive-inspired: Armogan ENB. Nothing fancy for the snowmageddopocalypse, just a retro-looking quartz chrono and a warm sweater.
Spotted out my office window: evidence of rooftop snownuts.
I’m going to Japan again in March. Any car-related stuff in Tokyo, Kyoto, and maybe Osaka I shouldn’t miss, other than the very enjoyable car-spotting?
In a turn of events that I would not have thought was a thing that actually happened in real life, at least after high school, had it not happened to me this very morning, I got hit on today expressly because of my car. By an attractive woman, not, like, an older guy in jorts—not that I have anything against older…
I have a hypothetical car purchase question for you Toyota Knowers. The prospective buyer is looking for a lower-mileage used 4Runner to own long term. It’ll be used as a daily driver and ski-mobile in winter and for hauling and camping (but not towing) in the summer. Some overland capability is necessary, and minor…
Specifically, the best version? With a warranty? Because once again, CarMax has a 507 Edition in stock and doesn’t seem to realize it. This time, it’s a coupe.
Just returned from a nice long weekend of skiing, friends, food, and champagne. Happy New Year, everyone!
Now here’s an old Subaru Leone/GL that looks like it gets used as an old Subaru should...but if the hand-painted label on the side is right, it’s hiding a secret engine swap. I have nothing but respect for this tough little rally beast and its owner.
Winter wheels and tires installed on the Volvo. Looks a little more capable with more sidewall than it usually does with the bigger stock wheels and Pirellis.
Suzuki Samurai: War Boy Edition
I had an event to attend near Snoqualmie yesterday, and had some free time to drive some of the nice roads up there (some of which will be familiar to those who participated in the PNW Oppo drive to Snoqualmie Falls).
