Past Projects

In the fall of 2001 Ryan and I started assembling and modifying cars together.  All started in different forms, some from scratch, others from near full build requiring only tweaking and tuning.  Nevertheless, all of these cars have been ours… we have a tendency to go through a lot:  lots that never even made mention here, and some that I spent hours writing and thinking about.  It is some form of A.D.D…. really.  In the first few years after we teamed up, neither of us managed to make it through a single season with one car.  They came and went. Mostly it was because we liked to dream, but it was also partly because there was always someone willing to buy.  Cash just looks so good.

Note: These charts are for fun.  Don’t confuse them for us being hard core and bad ass.  Check it out.

This website becomes less and less relevant to me but I think it’s worthwhile making some notes on the car and set up after a relatively unsuccessful two-day event this past weekend.  The annual WCMA regional solo event visited our lot at the Calgary Airport.  With between seventy and eighty drivers, I finished up 12th overall (?!? combined results don’t […]

Finally A Solo Event

It’s spring, and my fourth season with the FR-S begins… The fact that I’m still driving the car seems amazing in itself.  When I bought the car I planned on keeping it forever, but I sure as hell didn’t plan on keeping it stock. As it is though, it has largely impressed and I have seen little need to spend money […]

2017 Season Prep



This 5×100 wheel thing is getting me down… that and the solo regulations which I’ve decided to abide by which place my FRS in CS, and also restrict me to 7J width.  To date, a set of Enkei RS-III circa 1995 are the most interesting thing I’ve found, but I haven’t even gotten them on the car yet, and I’m […]

A Wheel Project?


I’ve wondered a few times about putting fifteen on the FR-S. Not only do I think they look make the car look better (or at least different) but 15″ winter rubber comes in some pretty great sizes and is really really cheap. However, now almost February, it feels like winter is about over, and I’ve lost all interest in using the FRS on […]

Easing Winters Pains

Dead of winter.   The ZN6… which I had planned to drive through the snow and salty slush, sits under cover of tin.  In part, that is because it is still something that, apart from some easily countable aesthetic blemished, is perfect.  It is also however… really not that good in challenging road conditions. I don’t think that really has […]

You’re Still The One

Road & Track is full of lots of shit… and this probably belongs in that category, but on their Facebook feed this morning I saw something that applies to me. Something that I had already considered and evaluated, and started to act on… The fruits of that action are seen above. A quote from Henry David Thoreau’s Walden… “Beware of […]

    It used to be that, you used to have the coolest and most unique wheels that nobody else have. The wheels you have now are something anyone can get from the Tire Rack or Vivid Racing catalogue. Is it because… All Q’s cool wheels are belong to Orrin. 😛

    Also, that’s a very nice photo on the top, ghost lake sunrise.

    5X100 is a serious party pooper. I think my Racing Harts are cool… but all my cool 5X100 shoes from WRX or Celica life are with Orrin or elsewhere. I’ve been hunting I swear…

    And I feel great sadness.
