Polar opposites Polar opposites

My take, having spent time with both:

Ewwwww Ewwwww

Who pooped in my carbs? The amazing part to me is that this bike ran flawlessly with all this crap in it. Going to be adding an inline filter after this. Rebuilt the carb and uprated the jets for the pod filters I put on.

24.7mpg in the Lexus from Overland Park to Wichita. Cruising on the highway between 70-90mph. Barge lyfe.

Had a photoshoot with this SS 1LE with longtubes and a briefcase delete. It sounds like the wrath of satan.

We get the Stealth back to Wichita, take it to a buddy’s shop and see what all is wrong with it. Then I drive it a bit.

The Lexusening The Lexusening

The Lexus 2nd-gen LS400 has a power tilt and telescope steering wheel. Like the 1st-gen it automatically retracts and tilts away from you when the car is turned off and whirrs back into position when you get back in.

Has Bad Luck So You Don't Have To, indeed. Has Bad Luck So You Don't Have To, indeed.

So someone was supposed to buy the Mazda6 today. Sunday I decided to go drive it a bit to get the rust off the brakes and whatnot.

The Saturn Sky is one of those cars that most commonly evokes the emotion “oh, yeah, I forgot about those” but should it?

Took my lunch break to go buy some torx sockets, came home and grabbed a deadblow hammer and fixed the driver door alignment on the Lexus. Aaahhh... so nice. Helped with the tiny bit of wind noise I was getting, as well.

So... So...

Matt Farah’s Million Mile Lexus is supposedly getting a feature, if not a cover, in the next Motor Trend issue. The car is pretty well-known in enthusiast circles, but your average Joe has never heard of it and likely has completely forgotten the LS400 ever existed. Now they’ll back into the minds of a large portion…

Friend of mine has an ‘00 LS400 with an accidental straight pipe exhaust. It’s hilarious for about 17 seconds and then it’s the most annoying thing in existence.

Seriously, the Honda 919 is just perfection.
