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).
From the FP article about Michael Avenatti’s racing career.
It’s Wednesday, and I’m bored, so it must be wrist check time again. Today, I’m wearing a new acquisition: Seiko Presage “Zen Garden” open heart auto. How about you?
Ever since my first one died way back in 2002, I’ve wanted to own another E30. I’ve kicked around buying other old BMWs and some interesting Japanese imports, but I always come back to these...something unfinished, I guess. I missed a good one last year and have looked at a few recently (including that awesome purple…
RPM Jr. had a little incident with a patch of black ice on a corner last week, and hit a curb at speed. Thankfully all humans are OK and the damage is mostly to the wheel, suspension, and axle. Insurance will take care of it and we will all learn a valuable lesson, I suppose.
I’m diving into hump day while wearing my “Save the Ocean” Seiko Turtle. It’s a special edition that benefits Fabien Cousteau’s educational foundation. What are you wearing on your wrist this Halloween?
Excuse the potato picture in a tunnel. I was behind this guy riding like this for about 5 miles this past weekend. No real traffic to speak of or any need to look over a car in front, just felt like riding standing up for a while, I guess. I was impressed with how much he leaned in corners despite being so high out of…
Not pictured: considerable negative camber on the left front wheel, and not of the intentional kind.
My car got its biannual detail (despite the rainy weather) yesterday. Sparkly clean engine porn below.
It’s an Alpinist sort of day. What did you wear on your wrist today?
