I spotted the cars above directly after pulling off the road to get a closer look at this DeTomaso Pantera I saw parked at the local auto shop.

Helped my roommate go out and buy a brand-new 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 on Saturday. I don’t know much about bikes myself, but I do know that 199 horsepower from a vehicle weighing less than 500 lbs is fucking fast.

Oppo, talk to me about Subaru Bajas Oppo, talk to me about Subaru Bajas

Why do I not see any modded Bajas around? I saw a stock Baja a few days ago and I got the urge to buy one and make it into a hot ute. I’m not much of a Subaru guy and WRXs and STIs are a dime a dozen in Colorado, but the UTE CALLS TO ME. Is there an aftermarket for these cars? A cursory Wikipedia glance tells me the…

I moved to Colorado four years ago today. I moved to Colorado four years ago today.

This state I’ve decided to call home is absolutely gorgeous. Here’s some of my photography from the past four years which is improved quite a bit by the natural landscape. Thar be cars and mountains ahead. No regrets about leaving the south.

Road trip from Colorado to Tennessee photos Road trip from Colorado to Tennessee photos

Around this time last month, I drove my Mazdaspeed6 from Longmont, Colorado to Lynchberg, Tennessee to visit a good friend of mine and, get some relaxation in, and see & do some cool car stuff.

DOTS: LET THERE BE FIGARO DOTS: LET THERE BE FIGARO

Spotted in my usual lunch spot. Never seen one of these cute little guys in the wild before.

It’s been rainy in Boulder lately. I just got my telephoto lens repaired. Thus I have this photograph to share with you all.

Pikes Peak International Raceway Time Attack 4-22-18 Race Report Pikes Peak International Raceway Time Attack 4-22-18 Race Report

The first championship round of Pikes Peak International Raceway’s Time Attack series took place almost two weeks ago so here I am to talk about it. That’s me up there in the green Miata running in RB, the slow RWD class. There were 72 drivers in my class and 272 drivers overall. Lots of cars.

There isn’t one.

Watchlopnik: Matching Car Edition, Pt 2 Watchlopnik: Matching Car Edition, Pt 2

I really love my Miata’s Emerald Mica paint. I kinda bought this watch to go with it.

Wake up, sleeping beauty Wake up, sleeping beauty

Finally got a nice enough weekend to pull the Miata out of winter hibernation and take her for a quick spin around town. I didn’t get a chance to wash her before putting her away for the winter, so I gave her a bath, too. Figures that cloud cover rolled in about mid-wash.

Happy 3/23 Day

I may not own my 323 GTX anymore, but that doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate 3/23 Day! Here’s a lovely photo of Jeff Zwart ripping up a rally stage in his GTX.

Photolopnik - new-to-me Nikon D700 Photolopnik - new-to-me Nikon D700

I’ve been keeping my eye out for a deal on full-frame Nikon cameras for a while now and finally found a D700 at a price that was easy to swallow. Stopped on the way home to try it out for the first time. I need to spend more time with the camera to really get used to it, as there are way more functions on this D700…

Happy birthmonth to my Mazdaspeed 6! Happy birthmonth to my Mazdaspeed 6!

My Mazdaspeed6 was built in February of 2006, making it 12 years old this month. It doesn’t complain as much as most other 12-year-olds, so I’d say it’s doing a pretty good job.

Bought this Orient watch the other day. Black/red/olive strap from Crown & Buckle. It sorta matches my Miata, right down to the red accent on the second hand/brake calipers.

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.
