...to get the garbage bins through.
Had a nice little drive with my friend and his 991 Carrera GTS. Ended up in downtown Palo Alto for tea.
Once in a blue moon, I bring this car on a workout run.
Just finished this yesterday. I’ve been a huge fan of Sega’s Yakuza series, and could not wait for the English localisation to come out. So during my Taipei flight transfer I bought the Chinese version. The Japanese title means “Like a Dragon 6,” but the Chinese release is titled 人中之龍 6, or “The Dragon of Men 6.”
R32s are starting to pop up here in California, even with the hefty CARB price tag.
I was in Hong Kong for a few days for a funeral (RIP Grandma, she had a long, healthy life after fleeing a war and could not have gone in a better way).
Movers came to haul away some stuff for donation, so I had to vacate the garage. It was raining quite hard.
Shallow scratches are starting to show, but the car still looks great—the bright red literally stings your eyes in direct sunlight. Wet look still in effect!
A surprising turnout for our organised group drive saw more than 20 cars with decent variety from an 80s Corolla GT-S to a 360 Challenge Stradale. Way too many 991 Porsches, but that’s really a testament to how good they are.
I dig the brutally, unapologetically industrial look of my car’s windshield wipers. In addition to having exposed washer hoses attached to the arms, the driver’s side wiper has two pivoting points enabled by two parallel arms of slightly different length.
F355s are a relatively rare exotic sight these days—newer models are seen much more often.
Finally some sun here in CA.
Heh heh heh!
Cloudy, they said. Rain, it did.
Feels like it has been forever since the Bay Area had a sunny weekend. The stars aligned and I was fortunate to be able to go on a fun little drive.
Lunar year hit yesterday, but a scheduling miracle let me go on a nice early morning drive up the western hills of the San Francisco Bay.
My first ride in an Alfa 4C. This one had an intake, exhaust and tune so it was pushing savage HP/tq (the owner said 80+ WHP gain, mostly from the tune).
Sorry for the click-bait title. My car is finally back. It had been gone for just over 5 weeks.
Headers finally returned from Fabspeed. The ceramic re-coating took a week longer than expected, and I have now been without my car for over a month.
A friend has always wanted a Viper, and he will soon be able to afford one.
