SmoresTM Has No Chill (O==[][]==O)'s posts - Japanese uPOST

Hello Oppo. Long time no see. Two years, actually. I return because I’ve recently come into ownership of a pair of original 1928 Connecticut plates (pictured). Although I don’t currently have anything appropriate for these plates to live on (a ‘28 plate on a ‘76 BMW? Don’t think so, but definitely thought about it) I…

I Adopted a New Child The Other Day I Adopted a New Child The Other Day

For months, I’ve been toying with the idea of picking up a manual film camera. I used to shoot with film when I was young, long before I saw photography as a creative outlet, and it was all pretty inconsequential. It was my mom’s Pentax, and its long since been dead. For the last few years, I’ve been honing my skills…

Small Caffeine and Carburetors New Canaan Photo Dump Small Caffeine and Carburetors New Canaan Photo Dump

Hey Oppo. Its been a while since I’ve been around, but today was the C&C New Canaan season opener and I snapped a few photographs. There were a lot of stunning cars, there were a lot of beautiful pooches, and I got to drive there in a Porsche Turbo S. How could I possibly ask for a better day?

A Couple of Silhouettes A Couple of Silhouettes

I’m not sure why, but I’ve been into architectural silhouettes recently.

I'm Going Home! I'm Going Home!

I’m catching a train home for Thanksgiving recess and I finally get to be reunited with two of my favorite non-human things: my dog and my car. Here’s a picture mom sent me featuring both.

Do it...[BAN(ned)-Pete] Do it...[BAN(ned)-Pete]

There are few things will get you banned from CL, all of which are legitimate. As a member that has been here since day one, is this enough to do me in? Peter, will you really do it?

CC 103 - Stance: It's Not All Bad CC 103 - Stance: It's Not All Bad

Hey there Oppo. I’m SmoresTM; your local stance conspirator. Welcome to Car Culture 103, a beginner level class that I just made up! Today we will be discussing stance. Last night, I decided to do a little experiment to show you that a lot of your conceptions about stance are probably wrong.

Honda Accord Aerodeck edition.

I hope this makes everyone sufficiently angry. I hope this makes everyone sufficiently angry.

I, on the other hand, am quite happy with this photo dump. Happy belated Wagon Wednesday.

I Found a Dead Bumble Bee today I Found a Dead Bumble Bee today

I also realized that I have never really used my Micro Nikkor 60mm lens, so I scooped him up from in-between my window and the screen and had a little photoshoot.

An Icon Reborn An Icon Reborn

Four years ago, Mike Burroughs lost a friend. Some of you may know the story, others may not, but his BMW E28 (a.k.a. Rusty Slammington) was engulfed in flames during an unfortunate garage fire. I had followed this car since 2009 or so, and learning of this accidental viking funeral nearly had me in tears.

Oppo, I'm Having A Crisis Oppo, I'm Having A Crisis

Not the fun kind. The identity kind. For years, I’ve been a BMW fanboy. I have the classic car to prove it. But recently I have been tempted by the devil...

When You Write Something Pro-Stance When You Write Something Pro-Stance

And then the article you commented on gets FP’d and you’re one of the top comments. Goddamnit. I’m really not looking forward to reading any of these...

File Under: Things Only Possible in Forza 6 File Under: Things Only Possible in Forza 6

How quickly do you think a BMW 2002 Turbo could make its way around the ‘Ring? If you guessed 7 minutes and 28 seconds, you’d be dead wrong. Well, in real life at least, but this is Digital Burnouts, where you would’ve been right on the money!

This Is What I Do When I'm Bored... This Is What I Do When I'm Bored...

Built a car when I was drunk. Drove it (virtually) when I was sober again. The results had me laughing so hard I almost cried. Sub 8 minute ‘Ring time in a Land Rover Defender 90? Sure, we can do that.

I Bought Myself an Early Christmas Present I Bought Myself an Early Christmas Present

Thanks to Chuck, my search for this thing has come to a close. After six months and many, many internet searches, I now own a steering wheel that is nicer than the any other component of my car’s interior... or exterior for that matter (until the new wheels go on, at least). It’s a Momo Futura, and I cannot wait to…

Time to Update Your Gamer Tags! Time to Update Your Gamer Tags!

With Forza 6 coming out tomorrow for Ultimate Edition players and the 15th for everyone else, it’s time to make sure your gamer tag on the Oppo Gamer Tags google doc is up to date. I’ve gone ahead and added a Forza 6 column under games owned so you can easily know who will be playing.

Wooooaaahhh Wooooaaahhh

I don’t typically like red cars. This manual BMW 840, however, I like quite a lot.

What Car Would You Hate To See Stanced? What Car Would You Hate To See Stanced?

Okay, so here on Oppositelock there is a lot of stance hate. Some of you may know my opinion on this, many of you do not. I pose to you this question: What car, above all other cars, would you rather see receive a proper viking funeral than see stanced? What car would make you contemplate an early farewell to this…
