Anybody want a temporary job next week? A colleague needs someone to drive a (new, safe) vehicle from the Bay Area to Michigan as efficiently as can reasonably be accomplished at legal speeds, and would pay well and include accommodation along the way and a return flight. The vehicle is brand new and a fairly…
As, mostly, have I.
Both seent in the parking garage at work. First, we have this bad boy with the obligatory “built not bought” sticker.
Here is the scene I found when I went to pick my car up from the detail shop conveniently located in the parking garage at work.
At the end of a steep, windy street near where I live is a very narrow lane that serves just one row of houses along the shore of Lake Washington. This road—“street” does not sound right—has outlets to the rest of the neighborhood at both ends, but in between is only wide enough to admit one car at a time and has no…
Took this on my first night in Tokyo back in March and forgot to post it...what is this awkward little sub-sub-sub-compact?
It fits, but it’s a little tight. That’s what she said. Also, she said “that’s not what goes in there,” which is true because my C63 is going to live there, not the 4Runner. Also also, I have a lot more boxes to find homes for before the other stall is available, and you can bet I’ll hear about it if it isn’t done…
Made a parking lot friend at the local grocery store. As you can probably tell from the rest of the parking lot, I do not live in the sort of neighborhood where this type of thing is common.
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?
