Facebook: The Place to Talk When You Have No Idea What You're Talking About Facebook: The Place to Talk When You Have No Idea What You're Talking About

Here’s the actual article if you’re interested. Pre-1996 vehicles will no longer be required to get emissions tests in Maryland, which seems pretty reasonable to me.

Made a detour into a big empty church parking lot on the way to work this morning for my Speed6's first snownuts. It did real real good.

Birthday presents for Wheelerguy! Birthday presents for Wheelerguy!

Wheelerguy requested some photos of some Gr.B cars in Gran Turismo Sport for his birthday, and I was only too happy to oblige. First up, the Toyota 86.

Yesterday 「RT」 requested some shots of the 2015 Jaguar F-Type R in Japan for his pal, and some shots of various road cars in urban settings for himself. If you have any requests for photos, let me know! Here’s a list of the cars in the game.

This morning, Wheelerguy requested some photos of some specific cars in GT Sport. I was happy to oblige! Let me know if any of you have other requests. Here’s a list of the cars in the game. I don’t have all of them unlocked yet, but I have most of them.

First time seeing one of these in person First time seeing one of these in person

Lancia Delta HF (Integrale??). Not sure which exact model this is, but based on the fender flares I think it’s an Integrale? Regardless, very very cool car to show up to the Lafayette, CO Cars & Coffee yesterday.

My neighbor got a new toy My neighbor got a new toy

Seen as I was leaving the house this morning to head to work. Left Hand Utes is based here in Denver, so I’ve actually seen a few of these on the streets. My neighbor just down the block is going to have some fun with this one I imagine.

2017 6 Hours of COTA - 35mm film photography 2017 6 Hours of COTA - 35mm film photography

Last month I attended the 6 Hours of COTA in Austin. This was my first circuit race experience, so I figured I ought to make it memorable. I decided to shoot photos on my trusty Canon AE-1 SLR. I brought a few different rolls of film and both lenses I own for this camera: a 50mm and a 28mm. Not exactly the ideal…

Gran Turismo Sport replays & photos! Gran Turismo Sport replays & photos!

I’ve qualified on pole and won a race on each day of the limited-time demo so far! Some of this may have to do with the fact that it’s a free demo with lots of yahoos who don’t know how to drive properly.

These are all just from the demo running this week, which is very stingy about giving you cars to use. So despite me playing off-and-on for...most of today, I only have 5 cars in my garage. Looking forward to having the full disc in my hands next week to make use of the full roster of cars and features! I’ve been…

Where did this design trend start? Where did this design trend start?

These plastic exhaust surround “heat shields”. My 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 has them, and they seem to be popping up on cars left and right today. When and where did they start? Was the MS6 an early trend-setter?

Group A Ghost: the Mazda 323 GTX Group A Ghost: the Mazda 323 GTX

I moved 1,000 miles from Louisiana to Denver, Colorado for a new job on July 4, 2014. At the time, my only car was my 73k-mile 2002 Mazda Miata. I had planned on buying a third set of wheels for dedicated snow tires and continuing to daily drive the Miata through the winter. But as summer faded away and temperatures…

Help me find summer wheels for the Speed6 Help me find summer wheels for the Speed6

I’ll be using the stock wheels on my Mazdaspeed 6 for winter duty, so I need to figure out what sort of wheels I want to buy for the summers. Ideal specs:

Who's going to the 6 Hours of COTA? Who's going to the 6 Hours of COTA?

I just bought my event and airline tickets. With the news of Porsche pulling out of WEC, this is my last chance to see these magnificent LMP1 beasts competing here in America so I figured I’d better follow through.

whodathunk 215 tires wouldn’t mount on an 11" wide wheel??

How best to remove dealer decals? How best to remove dealer decals?

I hate dealer decals & badges with a burning, fiery passion. The Mazdaspeed 6 I just bought has this decal on the trunk lid. How can I remove it without damaging the paint?

A couple weeks ago I sold my 1988 Mazda 323 GTX (ownership review coming soon). It was getting a bit long in the tooth and I’ve honestly sunk more money into it than I wanted to. I decided to cut my losses, sell it, and upgrade to a 2006 Mazdaspeed 6. More reliability, comfort, and power. Driving it a thousand miles…

FOR SALE: TiAL MV-S 38mm external wastegate FOR SALE: TiAL MV-S 38mm external wastegate

Bought this new a few months ago for a project that didn’t end up happening. Never used, hardly even handled. You get everything that originally came with it, all in the original packaging.
