I kind of want to do drifting. Wouldn’t mind owning a drift missile, either.
wing-brothers, rumble-bros, subi-sisters... “STIsters?” Ok, that’s enough.
Responses to this seem to fall into two categories: 1. My car is too boring, and 2. My car is too interesting (ok, unreliable).
I was passed today by an E39 M5 with straight pipes. He must have been going over 100mph, and the sound was...
At least 3 inches off of the road.
...but he’s got a lot of lives in him. It’s not ok to put lives in Frankie Danger.
It’s an email from my bank, not a newsletter about my... nevermind.
Between home ownership and car ownership, I have acquired a decent number of tools. Since I bought them over the course of 10 years, I never saw an immediate need for any kind of storage/organization solution. It’s become an issue now, and I’d like to do something about it.

I’m a fan of this newly popular body style. It’s a similar idea to the CUV, except not lifted, not too fat, and I don’t vomit in my mouth whenever I look at one. The three competitors I could think of are the Kia Stinger, the BMW 4 series Gran Coupe, and the Audi A5/S5 sportback.

Finally, after 4 months of waiting, the Nissan Dealership found the required parts for the Takata airbag recall and my wife and I picked up her car yesterday. Only trouble is they didn’t put the goddamn steering wheel back on straight! It’s almost off by 45 degrees to the left.
For only $860 I could be living my best life.
I’ve put up with the terrible coffee that our office coffee robot makes for far too long. Just so you can place me on the coffee spectrum, I work in Seattle and care about good coffee, but I won’t refuse to drink Starbucks or bad office coffee.
