IS300 cold start with the new exhaust. And some accel sounds.

Exhausting Exhausting

The Lexus’ exhaust was perforated as hell so I made new stuff out of junk. Now it’s slightly louder and drones on the highway but it sounds loud instead of having that broken “puff puff” noise of exhaust leaks. So that’s nice.

Fancy volkswagen Fancy volkswagen

Another photoshoot.

The actual worst idea ever The actual worst idea ever

This thing has been on FB for a while. 5.0, manual, notchback, four eye, fox body. With a 2013 Mustang GT interior swap. What in the hell.

Did a photoshoot of the new 911 Did a photoshoot of the new 911

Got a Yongnuo light and hoooly crap it’s great for light painting. There are a few weakpoints in these but overall a decent first attempt at lightpainting with an actual light. Shot another car as well, pictures of it coming later.

Buick Riviera with an intercooled GT500 Supercharger Buick Riviera with an intercooled GT500 Supercharger

No dyno numbers yet. Water-to-air intercooler sandwiched under the supercharger. 20psi of boost. Makes enough power that a short drive resulted in two blown up mufflers and a melted rear bumper.

BRUH BRUH

USDM AWD 3. DUDE. I don’t even care that it’ll probably be aut0-only I bet this thing is going to be a riot if you can get AWD with the top-trim 2.5 engine.

There is nothing wrong with ruining dime-a-dozen non-performance cars.

RIP RIP

Farewell to the facility that built the best car ever made, the Buick LeSabre.

MOAR PARTS MOAR PARTS

Hopefully the last parts order for the Mazda. Doing some paid photography work this weekend, getting my paycheck, AND doing a refund for the incorrect clutch I was sent so this shouldn’t sting too bad. New spark plugs, intake manifold gaskets, valve cover gaskets, and a majority of the front control arms. Trying to…

A thing I learned A thing I learned

The front end from a: GSXR500/650/1000 or a Yamaha R1/R6 will bolt right on to a CX500 with a $180 stem kit. This improves unsprung weight, overall weight, better suspension, better brakes, and better looks all at once.

dammit. dammit.

I’m dying this is hilarious.

yay yay

it’s leaking more coolant from somewhere completely different. Gonna drive it into a wall.

Clean Clean

Got all the salt washed off. The starter made lots of fun grinding noises when I went to start it. So that’s neat.

How much do you love Jules Verne? How much do you love Jules Verne?

Probably less than this guy. James Love is a bit infamous in the XJ-S community for his Verne-styled dually Jag (rebuilt 5.3 V12 with a 4l80e swap) with a custom camper made out of a Lear. He drives it around the country in appropriately ridiculous costume. 1000000% not my thing but it’s neat to see someone living…

YESSSSSS YESSSSSS

Found in Wichita with a temp tag on it.

It lives! Again! It lives! Again!

Replaced the upper heater hose and HOOOO BOY that turned into a debacle.
