One of my quiet and distant auto senpai once told me that modding cars was a game for children. Being a child at the time, I took this as old man talk. His logic was the following… How can the engineering resources of even the greatest tuning company possibly compete with those of a multi-billion dollar company like Porsche? […]

Car Life Flavour Turned Vanilla

When Zoolander came out in 2001, one of the core jokes in the film was the big-time designer putting together a fashion line called “Derelicte” based on the rags and garbage worn by street urchins in The Big City.

It was great to get out on the lake at least once this season. I don’t begrudge my absence from the weekend schools, the mid-week sessions, and the sold-out Ice Dice events. But I do notice it. Of course the fact that V and I have taken on the worlds biggest and best project (creating a universe incarnate) has influenced […]
