Hey Oppo, show me what you’re grilling today!
I installed a subwoofer in my GTI this weekend and discovered this atrocity that the previous owner left behind. It had 16,000 miles on it when I bought it. Who would do this to a brand new car!? Ugh. Thankfully it’s just speaker wires.
I made the trip for the second year in a row to Mid-Ohio to see some IMSA racing. It was cold and dreary to start the day but the weather became beautiful just before the start of the main event. Here are some of the pictures I took. I’m no professional photographer but I’m pretty happy with a few of these.
My lawn has turned dark green and I’m obsessed with it. The peonies are sprouting and the rose bushes are growing. It all makes me feel so good!
got up bright and early this morning to do oil changes on both of my cars. I love some light wrenching like this on Saturday mornings.
I love snow and I love driving in snow. We were promised 8-12”, but we ended up with about 3-4” of snow. Probably the perfect amount for some fun driving in the GTI. I took a few laps around the neighborhood after shoveling the driveway.
I took my old Saturn out for a drive this morning. It has been sitting for three months and needed a jump start, but once it started it ran perfectly well. That is what I love about this car, you can always depend on it.
I’ve been driving my GTI for almost three months now and I’m still loving it! Time for some accessories.
I went to visit my grandpa today and he was very interested in my GTI. After thoughourly looking it over, and checking to make sure I still owned the Camaro, we went for a drive. He loved it. “I felt like we were going to take off!” He said.
My GTI no longer has temporary license plates and I’ve made my first payment. I love it and have no regrets about purchasing it. It’s fun to drive, comfortable, and practical. My wife likes driving it and the doggos approve too. What more could I ask for? I already think my next car, ten years from now, will be a…
The dealer I purchased from offered to wash the car before I took it home, but I told them not to because I enjoy doing it myself. I Finally got around to doing it today and I snapped a few pics.
Drove 60 miles to get home. Had a blast! Questions? Comments?
It’s a 2017 GTI S with a manuel transmission. Only 16,200 miles and a great price. I am so excited! Waiting around for the finance guy to get the papers ready then I’m going to take the scenic route home.
Pacific Northwest Oppos, I’m heading to Kent, WA on Wednesday for business and I need some food and craft beer recommendations. Ideally breweries that serve good food. Got anything for me?
I went to Mid-Ohio with my Dad on Sunday and had a great time. We showed up pretty early, scouted out good viewing positions and took a walk through souvenir stands and manufacturer tents. Then we gilled some lunch and enjoyed a couple beers while we watched the first part of the race. It’s great track in a beautiful…
I replaced the Camaro’s original equipment Pirelli P Zeros with another set of the same today. I knew last summer that the tires weren’t performing the same as they had originally but I didn’t realize how much they had fallen off. This new set grips really well. I’m a happy man.
Mrs. Trickjos is quite a bookworm. She’s read more than 250 books so far this year, and she has a full time job. Anyway, we’re coming up on our second wedding anniversary and she wanted some nice shelves for her books. Here’s my gift to her.
I painted the second bedroom in our house this weekend and my wife gave me a nice thank you gift. She’s the best.
I haven’t posted anything in a while because I haven’t had any interesting car related stuff going on. So, here are a couple Camaro pics for you. Drove from Dayton to Kings Island on Tuesday then Dayton to Cincinnati yesterday for a wedding so it was in desperate need of a good wash.
It’s Sunday evening and I’ve nothing to do. So, I waxed my car and now I’m sitting in it listening to music. I love this car. 5 years later and it’s still the best thing with four wheels I can imagine. Post pictures of the cars you love in the comments!
