Someone finally MOC’d up an Enterprise, which I’ve been waiting to see for a long time. Got the instructions and hit bricklink. 2 Weeks later, voila.  A little over 5,000 pieces.

Wagon is even more practical now.

I was kind of surprised they fit without putting the seat down.

As we approach but never reach the event horizon of an AMG GT Black Series, infinite inferior variations will manifest. As we approach but never reach the event horizon of an AMG GT Black Series, infinite inferior variations will manifest.

AMG GT, AMG GT-S, AMG GT-C (roadster), AMG GT-C hardtop (a coupe version of the roadster C...), AMG GT-R, AMG GT53 4-Door Coupe, AMG GT63 4-Door Coupe, AMG GT63S 4-Door Coupe, and now the AMG GT-R Pro. Any guesses on how they’ll muddle the model line more before just giving everyone what they want...a Black Series?

Sweet merciful god, was this the first time this driver had ever been on a track or drove this car? I didn’t see a single apex hit. If you can see the apex through the window of a camera mounted on the right side of a helmet, you’re missing it by 10+ feet. Multiple instances of sitting on the rev limiter (1:06 was…

Saying goodbye to the Hachi-Roku

Well, I finally pulled the trigger and put it on Bring a Trailer. I was persuaded into listing it rather than donating or giving it away, so sorry to anyone that was hoping I’d go that route.

4 years ago I bought the ‘85 GT-S hatchback they listed on the front page with dreams of a Panda paint job and tofu delivery. A couple months later I met the woman that I’d end up marrying. The car then sat outside at a friend’s shop since then waiting for me to get less distracted by life. Then the town told him he…

Random Take:  Mercedes' move to act like their "Autopilot" system doesn't exist is the right one. Random Take:  Mercedes' move to act like their "Autopilot" system doesn't exist is the right one.

Here’s something you may or may not know. Mercedes E- and S-Classes have something called “Drive Pilot” that comes with their driver assistance packages and it currently has feature parity with Tesla’s Autopilot. When the 213 E-Class launched in 2016, Mercedes made an ad implying it was self driving. They got in some…

Buying a house, getting a dog, and planning to have kids sooner than you thought changes things.

Out of the blue my wife texts me that she loves the E38 7-Series and would love one in manual. Out of the blue my wife texts me that she loves the E38 7-Series and would love one in manual.

Probably the most random thing she’s ever sent me. She’s not even that big into cars and only learned to drive stick two years ago on the Fiesta ST. Come to find out she randomly learned there was a bigger BMW that looks similar to our E39 M5 when the girl I took to prom in high school posted a picture of me picking…
