I want to know three vehicles for the 2018 model year that are helping to keep your love of cars. If there aren’t three or any new/upcoming vehicles that caught your interest then I’d still like to hear your thoughts.
Here is a question that has plagued me for most of my driving life: How far into the intersection should you pull when waiting to make a left-hand turn against oncoming traffic?
Well, I was coming home from work when I came across the set of Amazon’s Electric Dreams. Nobody told me to not take pictures, so enjoy the first exclusive pictures of the cars in the show, which includes an apocalyptic Prius. (Bryan Cranston, if you’re reading this, hi!)
It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but trust me, I’ve been keeping busy. Moved into a rental house, pinching pennies, but snapping photos as much as possible. Without much comment because it’s past my bedtime but I wanted to post something, so here’s a few of the recent snaps from events I’ve been going to in…
You haven’t watched Best Motoring International, or whatever other names it goes by. Basically its a Japanese car show hosted by a crop of extremely experienced Touge drivers.
Many athletes enjoy an enormous platform, capable of reaching millions. This platform can be used for platitudes about working hard and competing, or, in the case of tennis player Nick Kyrgios, for selling a used car.
Did some basic maintenance on my Viper ACR. Oil change and lowered the front end a bit more!
I have always wanted a GTI, so when I got a new job in November and had to give up my company car, I immediately started scouring all the usual sites. My problem was I hadn’t been job searching very long, and therefore hadn’t had much time to save up money. Compounding the problem was the question of how quickly my…
Apparently today was just not my day. The Wife and I were out doing some stuff and as I was walking back to the car I saw something silver-ish in my tire. I was really hoping it was anything but a nail but alas, it was a nail. Luckily I thought to myself it wasn’t in the sidewall. But heh, my luck was done.
This is heaven. I’ll post a few pictures here, but go to the links and see more. I love this so much. Most of them you see for just a second in the movie...
Took my lunch break to go to a local shoe store and cobbler to get real boots for work. The ones I had were cheap and wearing out. I got a nice pair of Daners. These should last me for a long time. Especially since they have a very competent cobbler to repair them too. Well next store in my favorite store in all SLO…
Finally a decent day here in the Portland area, so to take advantage of the day fired up the 68 Camaro and the 33 Ford Pickup and let the batteries charge. Decided to video it since I haven’t captured any good idle clips in a while so enjoy some classic old school sounds...
So, aside from going to the Chicago Auto Show tomorrow, I have a weekend project with Tucker.
But I absolutely love this picture. One of my favorite pictures I’ve taken.
Building something as complex as a car is an expansive collaborative effort calling on people with diverse backgrounds. There is, of course, the engineers designing the actual mechanics, but there are also the aesthetic and tactile elements that affect how you experience the car, each carefully chosen by designers.
