My unbridled boy-racer-ism is much more tame these days. This is my photographic evidence for the degradation of my car enthusiasm as I’ve grown up. Anyone got a better personal picture of what their change in age, career, circumstance, or taste looks like? Mine is below!
I think I have the automotive version of SAD (seasonal affective disorder): SAD-MC. As in, “Seriously, Another Dang Muscle Car?” Though SAD-MC would be an interesting DJ name.
From the OP “I pulled over next to him a mile or 2 further.
I have many paint problems with my 2006 WRX that is Aspen White. Subaru is definitely not known for great paint, and I have not taken care of it as well as I should have. I’ve been trying to repair it using various products but there is only so much I can do. So I’ve decided I need to step up to drastic measures. I…

Long story short, I had the time of my life driving their ‘93 Birkin clone of a Lotus Super 7 on some of the best mountain roads Japan has to offer. Last October, I was back in the country to get all married and stuff, so I made sure to carve out some time…
I wanted to go for one last mountain drive before the snow hit over the weekend. This was the first proper test of the new exhaust, a Nameless axle back setup with 5” mufflers. I also drove a new road I had been eyeing on Google Maps – 17 miles through a meandering river valley – which was incredible.
Due to unexpected slippery and snowy conditions I had an accident in my WRX this morning. With the exception of hitting a deer a few years ago this is the first accident I have had with it. While on my way to work at 4:30 a.m. I took a turn and spun the WRX into a tree at about 15 mph. The damage report is fender,…
