No Picture

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

My excuse might be that I didn’t want to be an excitable fan boy taking pictures of shit and drawing ridicule and skepticism from the salesman who has treated me so well to this point, but the truth is that was actually so excited that taking pictures never even crossed my mind. And then I searched online for something suitable to cover for me, and hopefully peak your interest and make you realize that I actually have something meaningful to…

Big Like

big-likeI’ve got my FR-S test drive tomorrow. Here is hoping I don’t feel like this guy. The car is supposed to be friendly to tall people… we’ll see. I sat in one while in Japan, it was comfortable enough, but that was with TRD buckets.

Either way… it’s a big turning point. Where will my dreams go if it disappoints me like so many other cars? S2000, Miata, MR2 and of course Elise. You all know I’d be driving an…

WTF is going on?

A. My work makes me feel like a man.
B. Two little girls are really nice to come home to.
C. It’s almost mosquito season.
D. Japan was really really awesome.

WTF is going on?

I miss the AE86 horribly. It went first, almost on impulse. It was on Kijiji for a few days at a…

S-T-ruggling

86rc-vs-gtI’ve been torturing myself like crazy.  I’m wavering somewhere between 25% and 90% NOT purchasing a new 86.  If we could buy something like the Japanese spec 86 RC here (left) I’d probably be quite certain.  Don’t get the unfinished bumpers and the big empty space on the dash?  I do.  In Japan subtracting painted bumpers, alloy wheels, navigation, red interior and a few other tidbits knocks about $10000 off the price.  $15000 FR-S…  Who wouldn’t buy one?

Hell, I’ve…

All Cars Are Free

brz14Well of course not, but when it comes to cars, sometimes I’m so happy to part with my money that it actually feels like it.  Even if I’m buying the most expensive car I ever have.  If…

But it’s hard for me to determine if I want an awesome fun car, or if I want a clean shiny car that is supposed to be an awesome fun car.  If I trade it for the ST185, I am certainly sacrificing a…

Ahhh… maybe I don’t mind that Boxer engine after all. What amazes me is that it is Scion Canada that is doing this.

Looks good. Feels Good. Reveals me to be the スーパーオタく.
