A W E S O M E !
This car is built like shit, feels like it is going to fail, and is spastic in anything that isn’t dry. It’s a blast to drive, but the charm is quickly wearing off.
We went today to pick up the rest of the pipes and jigs for our headers and ran across this beaut’ sitting under an awning. It’s got an old Powerdyne bolted on! I know this thing can’t make enough steam to make use of a supercharger, but it was interesting regardless.
Apparently this happened on Monday or Tuesday....
A scrapper acquaintance told me he had a 300D at his yard I could scavenge for parts. Nothing of much use on that car but I saw this old truck sitting near the back of the lot.
And now that winter is coming, visions of Z4 snow drifts are dancing in my head...
My late grandpa’s soldering iron’s handle has found its way onto my Miata with the help of a 10x1.25 nut glued into the bottom (hole enlarged with a step bit). Test fit it on the Miata and it doesn’t knock into the radio like I thought it might and is surprisingly ergonomic, but it’s ludicrously light-weight. Probably…
I’ve said several times that Maserati is my favorite brand. It’s an unhealthy and completely delusional love because I am painfully aware of all the issues and choose to tolerate them. Today I learned that the GranTurismo and GranCabrio are being killed off in 2017. No Alfieri sportscar, no grand touring coupe, and no…
I have one more night of my 20s left, so I figured I’d get a few braps in.The forty-four year-old clutch was getting a bit slippy on me from 1st-2nd, but the engine felt great.
I’m not a terribly spiritual person, it’s just not my bag. But if you believe in Jesus, cool. If you think Santa is real, more power to ya. But let’s get some facts straight:
Ye’, an apology to Piglet, also for the state of Piglet but more to Piglet for letting her get that way.
Driving manual while wearing steel toe boots. My clutch already has no feel to it, no sense in rubbing it in.
I think this is what President Harding commissioned Nikola Tesla to build to create the internet.
Engine installed by professional mechanic in his back yard with receipts to prove it.
Chris Harris for top gear or Jeremy Clarkson for Grand Tour?
(Kinja why you messing with me?) 16v Gti on steel wheels. Was such a fun car. Borla exhaust, neuspeed chip, summer rims 3 piece bbs’s, winter rims steel wheels. This photo was taken because we hadn’t seen the car in a year due to living in Philadelphia and having no where to keep it so we locked it in storage in…
Link to one and then I am being Kinja’d and the links pop up and disappear so the other two are in the comments.
I swapped a transmission in my Volvo and went drag racing. Only the most proper of pre-exam preparations in this household. Who wants to see the result?
