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.

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 […]

Don’t Be A Tool



As I hinted at a couple weeks ago when writing about Ryan’s old SW20, I’ve bought in completely to the street class mentality. Part of me was afraid to do this because it seems so incredibly boring. The car stays plain. Tuning options are limited. I don’t get to go fast. As I’ve known all along though… the right wheels […]

All In For C-Street


I am slow to get things done. Things happen pretty fast in my mind – but am much slower getting them on paper, let alone tangible incarnations. The WRX has been sitting since May, and nice weather isn’t the real reason. I am reluctant to make a second attempt at a JDM motor, because this time around the turbo & […]

Shi no Senkoku



Either I have a really cool neighbor, or my neighbor has a really cool friend. I was able to stop and take a terrible picture of this car the second time that I saw it on my block. I remember hearing stories about golden valve covers and the technicians engraving their names on the crankshaft after hand balancing. Hipster Alert! […]

Subaru Technica International


My car is cared for and loved, but it has not necessarily had an easy life.  With a little more than 13000km on it now, it seems to only ever emerge from the garage for track events.  To and from these events, it sees no more than 3500rpm as I challenge myself to improve my gearbox work by keeping the […]
