Was shooting some assembly photos for a robotic bartending kit we’re making (we bought the sirmixabot domain).

Analog Sports-Cars: I bought a Noble M12-GTO 3R Analog Sports-Cars: I bought a Noble M12-GTO 3R

After sufficiently abusing my Miata turbo, I wanted to purchase a different analog sports car now that I could afford a bit more. I had previously had a C5 Z06 and loved the tractability and durability of the car, but wanted something a bit more unique and special this time.

Track is Whack Track is Whack

Sort of.

Modding your car is an endless black hole Money Pit. And Fun Modding your car is an endless black hole Money Pit. And Fun

So I bought a turbo Miata for track time. It seemed to have all the good gear and all the right stuff to be turn-key ready. At $3,500 wearing R888's already this was a certified craigslist platinum deal.

You Probably Know Nothing about Auto Dealer Auctions You Probably Know Nothing about Auto Dealer Auctions

Cheap EV’s, budget prices? Forget it. This is a cut-throat world of commodity trading that most people don’t understand.

This is my Miata ... there are not many Miatas like it but this one is Mine (turbo) This is my Miata ... there are not many Miatas like it but this one is Mine (turbo)

At some point in motordome, you’re going to have to get a Miata. I felt I had skipped this phase in my life having graduated to M3's, Z06's and others. But after starting a startup (sounds redundant I know), I found myself a little more cash strapped then lends itself to burning up 295/18's on a regular basis.

Car Pricing Tools - what do others use / want to see?

I’ve decided most car valuation engines are kind of rubbish and they don’t allow any insights into the real data. I’m thinking of creating my own vehicle-price tools to give some better insights into:

I have the chance to buy a dark blue 456M GTA. A few minor issues:

Stop Being Believing what you Read - Driving a Viper Quickly Stop Being Believing what you Read - Driving a Viper Quickly

For all the posts on how “terrifying” it is to drive a Viper quickly... I don’t find it true at all. Here’s me @ Laguna Seca. Notice I am still facing the right direction, not on fire, and my leg is not burned.

Odd comparison? I beg to differ:

McLaren Morning Routines McLaren Morning Routines

I always looked forward to the morning trip into work. I would head from my subleased 2-bd apartment that I shared with my then Fiance (now wife) and run to the Waterloo station to catch a 7:15am or so train. It was a 30 minute or-so train ride down to Woking, and normally I'd catch up on reading of F1 results, car…

Back in Time to my first Car  - 1983 DeLorean Back in Time to my first Car  - 1983 DeLorean

So here it is - this is my 16 year old self with my dog and my very first car - a 1983 DeLorean DMC-12. This is actually me taking a picture of me when I went back to 2001. (From now on I'll cease to make BTTF jokes).

Always Recommend a Dodge Viper Always Recommend a Dodge Viper

Being a car dealership and car finding service, I frequently get asked "advice" on which car might be best suited for someone. The conversation normally goes something like this:
