Finally getting around to editing some videos. This first one is kinda short but we’ll get there... eventually, I guess.

I wanna see a slammed Enclave or Traverse.

Noises a Miata shouldn't make: this Noises a Miata shouldn't make: this

Hey y’know oil? Important for cars to run. Somehow without leaving a puddle or smoking my Miata ate 3.5 of its 4 quarts of oil. This is what a BP-Z3 sounds like running on half a quart.

Why do all modern cars have slab-sided wheel wells? Why do all modern cars have slab-sided wheel wells?

Something I’ve noticed that is present in pretty much every modern car. Look at the F-type above. Now get your hand out of your pants. Around the wheel wells there is perfectly flat sheet metal for about 1.25-1.5" around the whole wheel well. Contrast with this old gen1 XK8

My neighborhood is all smokey and I have absolutely no idea why.

Drove a Fiesta ST tonight Drove a Fiesta ST tonight

Went to a dealership to test drive a FiST. On my way there the Miata showed 0psi oil pressure for a few seconds so that was neat. Hopefully just a sender. Anyways. Drove a FiST since I happen to need reliable modern practical transportation that isn’t an utter penalty box, despite a chorus of people telling me that a…

Did a Volkswagen and re-edited the Saturn Sky and Nissan paintings from earlier with a different technique.

Trying to figure out if the persistent oil smell and drippy drips in the Jag is from oil blowing out the unbaffled valve cover through the breather so I grabbed a breather hose off of a GMT400 that had decided to go for a swim and slapped it on and dunked it in an empty red bull container ziptied to the firewall to a…

That feel when a broken s-class has better fitment than 99% of stancbois in town.

Lots of work done on the Miata last night. It was a fun time but first I had to get a small car onto a large lift.

All this beauty abject horror for the low price of $80k. And do you think it comes with a legit lift kit? Guess again buddy.

My timing was advanced, oh, twice as far as it should be. Go figure. I never had my timing light in the same place as the car since I rebuilt my distributor. Runs much better now. I also got my electric fan hooked back up after, for some reason, the random switched power wire I *was* using to pop the relay started…

Whyyyyyyyyyy Whyyyyyyyyyy

Why would you do this?

Some old dude locally brought this to a car show. No ironic stuff here, he legit thought this Pontiac Sunfire was the absolute business.

There was a car meet tonight. I took some pictures.

I’m honestly not that pleased with them. I dunno what it is. There’s just a distinct “fuzziness” or “fakeness” to them that I could not figure out compared to the razor-sharp images my peers were taking (then again their equipment made my computer look like a pinhole camera).

Of course Of course

Looks like someone somehow hit the front of the Miata. Sigh. Just cosmetic but... Really? Peeled plastic off like scraping a knife on butter. Annoying. I have comprehensive with a $250 but I dunno if this is worth it. Might just hit it with bumper filler and repaint the stupid thing.
