The time has come for another get together. A few oppos will be in town and hopefully my car will be less broken. Although this meet happens to be in SoCal, there will be non-SoCal oppos in attendance. The plan is below:
I’m re-sharing this poorly written piece as a celebration of the Beetle. RIP and I hope you come back as a bad ass electric car (with a rear engine) once VW electrifies the world.
Area man not very shocked his Italian car is still acting Italian
As we approach the 2 month mark of when my car decided to develop a nasty misfire, I am very near throwing in the towel. I threw some parts at the issue with no real progress, and I’m now far past my knowledge, skills, and tool set.
**Shit’s still broke**
Just in case there is anyone not on our email list, a few of us are going for a drive tomorrow morning.
It looks like someone caught my bumper parallel parking last night or this morning. It is down to the plastic so it will not buff out. Excuse the otherwise dirty paint, it sprinkled and dust covered the car.
Keep it 200(k), Oppo
Hope your weekend is stress free. I’m sipping an ipa on an island and blocking the fact I’m taking a redeye back to reality tomorrow night
It becomes a bit chonky
Enjoying a beverage and listening to music loud enough that it’s surely pissing off my neighbors. I’ll turn it down at 10, because I’m only partially a dick (and that’s the law)
Toby would be invited, IM. And I guess he could bring a plus one.
4.7 liters, borrowed from Ferrari, and wrapped in one of the most beautiful bodies produced in the past 15 years (about the age of the chassis lol):
So here is a picture that makes me happy.
Hey, OPPO. I hope all of you rad people are doing well! I had a minor inconvenience in my life that has become a full blown first world problem. Enjoy my struggle below:
I saw IM’s post and remembered RADwood is this weekend. Are any other Oppos going? I’m honestly on the fence. I am attending a pub crawl the day before so I originally planned to do all my adulting Saturday morning and just being a sad sack-o-crap all day Sunday. My car needs to be washed, at minimum before Sunday and…
Every year, Road and Track publishes their Performance Car of the Year. It’s a well put together test that accounts for objective track testing with tons of data and subjective back road enjoyment. All (?) of their writers are part of the test and they get cars loaned from some of the best marques on the planet. This…
With all this talk of the Stinger lately, it got me thinking of our lack of non-luxury sport sedans. I would say the Legacy GT filled this gap for a while, and GM has made a few efforts. But other than that, it seems like this is dead zone. Every car that focuses on driving, seems to be a luxury offering, and every…
What is oppo eating or drinking tonight? I’m having a house IPA brewed by mission down in San Diego. It’s been a good week riding the high from the weekend. Hope you all have a good night
It’s. Still. August! We are still in the height of summer. Some schools aren’t even back in session yet. The unofficial end of fall weekend (Labor day) hasn’t happened yet. But! When I opened up my snapchat, expecting to see my daily dose of friends on vacation, cute animals, and dank burritos, TWO friends in a row…
