"Needs a tune up" "Needs a tune up"

We knew about the water damage. We did not know the other piston was very literally slagged.

Mobile Oppos: Does anyone else use Fleksy? Mobile Oppos: Does anyone else use Fleksy?

... and does Kinja absolutely HATE you? I used to think it was just Kinja mobile in general but it seemed to do okay with the google keyboard. When I use Fleksy, though, it regularly switches letters around, splits words around other words, etc...

...I probably would have gotten a different car. There’s about 10 small boxes in that row on the far right, and another five or so stacked on the passenger seat.

Product Photography Questions Product Photography Questions

For my job, on a normal week I probably take about 50-100 photos per day of various motorcycle parts against a white background like this. The nature of the job means I need to do this quickly. The more time I have to spend shooting and editing photos, the slower our inventory intake is. I was just curious if anyone…

Do you ever wonder how many cars there are of which -no- restorable examples remain?

Obviously, really old or very low volume cars are the easy answers, but I wonder how many post-war mass market cars there are that have entirely ceased to be.

What the hell is going on with this ignitor? What the hell is going on with this ignitor?

Off a 96 ZX900B. The others I found have the same thing to varying degrees. Looks and feels like gravel poking up from inside.

Bandit 600 dry valvetrain Bandit 600 dry valvetrain

So here’s a problem we can’t figure out. Our bandit 600 is getting no oil on the left side of the valve train. Right side is fine. We’ve checked the galleries and lines with compressed air and nothing is blocked. We can’t figure out why this is going on. It’s a long shot but I couldn’t find anything on Google so I…

Car behaving oddly (so descriptive!)

Okay, so over the last few months I’ve noticed several times my car (15 BRZ) take 2-4 more cranks than usual to start. This in itself isn’t really alarming, but once so far it just kept cranking and cranking until I hit the button again. After that it started fine. Tonight, though, it started up normally, then made a…

God dammit. God dammit.

Come on. A few thousand more miles and I would have felt perfectly justified just getting a new set of tires. It would be a great excuse to get rid of the SPORTS PRIUS shoes.

While tearing down the zx900, I put the tank and seat back on for fun. Ends up looking pretty damn nice. If the rest of the bike wasn’t such a basket case it might make for a fun custom project.

What ever happened with the Genesis Coupe? What ever happened with the Genesis Coupe?

I remember when it was first announced, it seemed like an awesome combination. 5.0 V8, Brembo brakes, sporty coupe styling. I don’t think I’ve ever really heard about them since. I’ve seen maybe a couple on the road, but I feel like I see far more Tiburons from the same era.

NYIAS Photo Selection and Thoughts NYIAS Photo Selection and Thoughts

Since I know you’ve all probably seen the same cars a hundred times on here by now, I’m just going to upload a handful of my favorites. If anyone DOES want another angle on something, just let me know. Also, feel free to critique my photo technique. Shooting hundreds and hundreds of product photos against a white…

Found While Editing: Dat Ass Found While Editing: Dat Ass

I’ve found a couple pretty great faces while going through my NYIAS photos. But this one I felt was worth sharing.

Dammit, Hyundai. You got me. Dammit, Hyundai. You got me.

“That Aston looks nice” I said from a distance, thinking it was the Vulcan. Hyundai Genesis finally got me. They made a car that looked not-terrible enough to be a different brand.

Random NYIAS thoghts

1. Was disappointing. I have seen others’ photos of cars that were either not there, or extremely well hidden.
