I am looking ahead at my next daily. Eventually will sell the FoST and get something boring and cheap to put miles on. I’d like another hatchback or slightly bigger sedan. Diesel/long range on a tank would be ideal. I think I have added another big selling point, cooled seats. Google and other website lists tell me…
Looking to get a track day car for approx $5000 stock, I can spend some in parts and do work myself. Main uses are autox’s, occasional track day, and SCCA Targa assuming they do it again. NA and NB Miatas are out because they are too small. Car needs to fit a 6'4" 275 lb driver. I have not driven but am looking for an…
Always looking at what is next, it has been 20 months since I bought a car anyway. So this Friday morning I will be looking at one of these:
At the dragstrip. For an event with turns.
I am looking at registering for an autocross this Sunday at Michigan International Speedway. The motorsportreg.com page says 3 runs. Has anyone run MIS with Detroit SCCA recently? For only 3 runs I won’t be making the trip.
I got And pix in my FoST :-(. Damage is minimal on front door. Rear door is slightly crooked and is trash, fender significant damage. Wheel barely scratched buy I am gonna try to get it replaced so it is as nice as it was. So let’s play guessing games maybe I’ll find a prize.
I also saw these cool wagons.
I am going to C&C Indy this Sunday at the IMS Museum. Still deciding what car to take. Anyone else going???
Was everything I could have hoped for and more. If you can and think you might want to drive it, do it. Also weekdays are good if possible.
This thing. Haven’t looked it up yet.
Currently stopped for the night on my Blue Ridge Parkway road trip. I’m driving it from Cherokee, NC to the end in Waynesboro, VA in one trip. I’ll have a big post with more Potato pictures when I finish. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes driving/roadtrips.
My job search is bearing fruit and I have two offers. Should have a job lined up by tomorrow. Now to worry about the garage (house) search. Jobs are in the automotive field so I will get to work in an area I care about. Excited to get going, and my Camaro is going to like the coils and C5 brakes I plan to get this…
I put mothballs in my Camaro over the winter. While I now know this is a mixed success and horrible thing to do, I did. My grandpa has always done this and I didn’t know better. I previously borrowed one of his cars and after a week with a fan in it and charcoal and kitty litter moving it in the sun when possibly it…
Not many plans this weekend and I finally found a Renegade 4wd Manual so I made an appointment to drive one tonite. No intentions of buying yet, but I am intrigued. Should be something fun to do anyway. Luckily it is a 2016 so not as discounted as a lot of the 2015's are. Those I might tempt myself. Pircute of how I…
Went to a flea market for the first time, was an interesting experience. Did get some good Hot Wheels though. I was looking for an IROC 1:24 car but didn’t find one.
All of a sudden my job search is going somewhere, after months of nothing a handful of companies at once have some interest. When it all settles out I’ll be able to post more, but rest assured they’re very oppo related as well as will support more car project work. :-)
Later this year I’ll most likely be moving and will need an apartment. As I have two cars, one of which will need to be stored inside I have to think about what to do. Currently one car stays in a pole barn while the other is in use. I do not know where I will be geographically yet.
Pictures represent start and current status. From Targa Newfoundland which I would like to do if I can get a job and save up.
Anyone else watching the Chili Bowl tonite? I got the Lucas Oil TV year subscription. I used to stay somewhere that had MAVTV and I watch a lot of the stuff they have. I could watch dirt track racing all the time.
