Guy on the Miata forums put this together. Progressive twin turbo, in a setup Borg-warner envisioned for diesel applications. Fully custom.... Pretty much everything. Imagine AvE getting into the car world and you'd have this guy. 

NPoCP?  NPoCP? 

1st gen V70R wagon, high mileage but with an awesome color combo. Didn’t realize that a two-tone interior was ever available. Quick Google search says that they were a very rare option for the 2000 model year R’s only. Neat

Mostly out of boredom. Went through every single Craigslist and Indeed listing. When you’ve literally worked in every position from the bottom to the top of the industry, you know exactly what to say to be a hiring managers wet dream.

Too bad nobody around here likes older Toyota's  Too bad nobody around here likes older Toyota's 

I’m looking at older Supras. Trying not to drool over that interior...

Do you ever feel bad for delivery guys? 

I just ordered a 1500 gallon chemical tank that weighs in at 500 pounds, and checked the “item will be offloaded and positioned by drivers” button. They're going to need quite the lift-gate/pallet jack/whatever for this bad boy.... 

Oppo.  Oppo. 

You get to gift a perfect copy of your cars to another member here. Each car can go to a different person, if you have multiple. Who do you choose and why?

Apartment shopping round two Apartment shopping round two

Found a nice loft.... With a garage door leading into the living room!!! *swoon*

It sold :( It sold :(

I’ve been watching this for awhile. Turbo, manual, awd, 850 wagon in immaculate condition, with 3rd row jump seats. Canada import, and a rare one at that. Went for $6000 (maybe less). Do I regret not going for it, and selling my current 850? *sigh*. Yes, yes I do.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned this yet I'm surprised no one has mentioned this yet

Mid cycle refresh for the Subaru Wrx Sti with forged internals, a decent power bump, wider BBS wheels and tires, carbon fiber roof, significant chassis bracing, suspension upgrades, cooling system enhancements and new body work.

Late night apartment hunting Late night apartment hunting

One of my goals is to live in a modern, downtown apartment with floor-to-ceiling windows, for a few years at least. Another housing-related goal? An industrial-style loft. Alright, Craigslist, show me what you’ve got.

I’m flying to San Francisco in February. Friday the 1st, to whenever I feel like leaving. For... reasons. Haven’t been to California since I was a kid, what should I see? Where should I eat? Any amazing national parks that aren’t too far, preferably north of San Francisco?

Oh and.... #hottake. The best Audi color is Nardo Grey. And the RS3 is gorgeous (wheels aren’t great tho).

There’s a guy commuting on a unicycle with a knobby tire. I feel like I should have extended an Oppo invitation...

Also top speed’d a Swedish brick. One of those two ended in heartbreak.

Volvo question. I have these nets that retract from the back of seats, but I have no idea where they’re supposed to hook in.

This is what perfection looks like. I don’t know what this vehicle was used for originally (military?) but I do know that I would give a Kidney to make it an adventure rig.

:(

Craigslist hunting: Mitsu at it’s finest. Post up some finds from Mitsubishi’s storied past.

Volvo did me a spook Volvo did me a spook

Turned the key and the the hazards turned on. Engine however, did not. Hmm

Finance-oppo Finance-oppo

Inspired by Wobbles. I decided to try out a high-yield online savings account. 2.45% interest with zero fees and minimal hoops to jump through. A few other changes as well. Any pros want to double-check my thought process to make sure I’m doing things correctly?

Yes, people do buy these Yes, people do buy these

No, I don’t know why.
