hoping Ryan Passay takes the win for Miatas everywhere. Another year dominating the fwd/awd classes would be cool, too. Anyone else following along?
All three vehicles have battle scars from Seattle’s biggest storm in decades. Even the Subaru I sold to my neighbor didn’t escape unscathed. Nothing too terribad, although I should probably do something about the Miata fender...
Aubergine!!! I’ve never seen this color in the flesh. This is only the second I’ve seen for sale.
And looks like I won’t be able to make it at all this week. There’s two feet of unplowed snow on all of the roads surrounding my company, and even I’m not crazy enough to try that in the Miata. Guess we play video games at a friend’s house 🤷♂️
I wish I was joking. Anyways, I’m ranking the best snow cars within. Come on over and tell me why I’m wrong.
With the new Maxxtrax, rescued a Forester that had high-centered itself on a curb. Did some tandem drifting with a random Gt-r. Went legit offroading for the first time in an old 4runner (spoiler: not for me). And... Slides. So many slides.
Apparently more power + more grip makes for some fantastic, easily controlled sliding. My neighbor let me try his tuned WRX, and I let him play around with the Miata. I think we both walked away loving each other’s cars...
Maxxtrax and recovery strap arrived. Any good ideas on mounting points for the strap? I assume I need some kind of shackle with a removable bolt, and it should be mounted to the frame right? What about a robust d-ring to connect the strap to my existing tow hook? Is that a terrible idea?
Four pounds of fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs are done, stew is getting started, and there’s a roast for later. Plus booze. Lots of booze. Let’s go mother nature. Give me your best shot
I KNOW some of you must have some good, simple crock pot recipes. Share. Plz. 30th anniversary Miata for your time.
The Uber driver who showed up—hazard lights on—to take my neighbor to the airport when no Lyft drivers would come out on this frigid 6:00am morning. He’s likely going to drive the whole way at 15mph with his hazards on, but when the alternative is digging out a Volvo and driving to SeaTac myself.... I’ll take it.
Here’s a good one for ya.
If I had a penny for every thumbs up or phone whipped out to take a video... Oh man.
In completely unrelated news, I flew to San Francisco and drove a new-to-me brick 900 miles home through multiple winter weather advisories. On summer tires. Oh and Sovande, you were right. V70 seats are in a league of their own.
May your dreams be filled with turbo bricks
I ordered something from what I assume is just a local mom & pop pizzeria, and guys.... It’s the best pie I’ve had in my entire life. It's not even close
I’m making a nightly inspection form for work, and one of the tasks will be to fill a chemical tank in one of our roof-cleaning vehicles. I’m trying to find an equation for this so I can put it in my form and allow my employees to plug in how much roof mix is already in the tank, and then get numbers for how much of e…
Why not just fix the actual problems, like notifications still being borked, and moving a photo up or down in the mobile editor causing the page to automatically scroll to wherever text was last selected.
Got some good Volvo parts and saw some interesting cars, like the above turbo, manual Baja. What I wouldn’t give to have that as my “truck”.
