My baby’s growing up so fast.
It’s now been almost a week since I purchased XJDano’s Metro for a trifling. We spent day 1 swapping transmissions to one that mostly works right (it doesn’t like to downshift into 2nd or 1st). Since it still has a valid Missouri license plate, and I’m within the 7-day window where I can retroactively buy insurance…

Many pictures, few words.
Photo dump to come later. If you can’t guess what the green one is then I’m going to hurt you, with my sympathies.
Last year in my many threads about the tale of selling my ‘74 Buick Apollo, one of which is here, I took a fair bit of (good-natured) crap about selling such a cool car. I did it anyways, and I don’t regret it one bit.

It’s kind of clear that George Lucas is a pretty big car fan but here’s his senior thesis from his time at the University of Southern California. It’s a good thing he got all this practice shooting fast moving objects like a Lotus 23. Who knows what Star Wars could’ve ended up looking like.

Hello Oppo! I just made a new run of Vinyl, if you’re into that sort of thing. I also still have Oppo decals and the old design available. These are designed to be mounted on the exterior of glass, but they can be mounted on paint if you’re some sort of monster.
So Saturday was a very nice day. I fixed the brake carrier to spindle mount bolts on my Z4 (because why bother with Loctite 242?) because one was stretched. Then we turned our attention to the Audi.
By the end of the day, I’ll be sitting about an inch and a half lower! Death to wheel well gap!
My first reaction upon experiencing a full throttle pull from the passenger seat was to mutter, “fucking hell…”, and then burst out laughing.
Meet the new brain child of the engineers over at Peugeot Sport, the 308 Racing Cup. It comes with a 1.6l turbocharged engine developping, at least, 308hp. The turbo was sourced rom the recent 208 T16. It also weighs only 1000 kg (or 2200 lbs). And obviously it is FWD. Also the rear wing is actually up to par with…
