Москвич ! Москвич !

A coworker of mine, who is from Moldova, just casually mentioned that his dad is thinking of bringing his old Moskvitch over and asked me if it would be worth anything here if/when they decided to sell it.


It’s a good thing my project car quota is filled because this Dart complete with factory sunroof and folding rear seat is both close to me and fairly cheap.

It's finally Friday!!! It's finally Friday!!!

After a week that included dealing with a remote employee who had just been fired to get their company equipment back I’m more than ready for it.

It seems to be the theme of the day.

When you lose all forms of situational awareness When you lose all forms of situational awareness

You change lanes right in to a tanker truck.

DOTS or is that DOT(Lake)? DOTS or is that DOT(Lake)?

I was heading out to our colo facility to do a little system administering when I spotted one of our local “characters” out for a little spin. I wasn’t quick enough with the camera but luckily there are plenty of shots of it tooling around town available. Given the weather he might have been wishing he was on the…

Ghost driver! Ghost driver!

Any JDM (yo!) folks know the particulars on this? Badges say Nissan Skyline GTS-t. Looked a little rough but fun. We won’t discuss why the driver was wearing a knit cap on an 80 degree day or the fact that my DD needs a bath.

She’s Home She’s Home

After spending the day at the doctor’s office getting aligned, though not getting springs like I hoped, she got to come home for the first time.

I’m officially living here now

The Trials and Tribulations of House Buying and Selling 

Today was supposed to be closing day. Yeah, not so much.

This is my Camaro. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Work project

As many of you are completely unaware of I work for a language company. Right now a coworker is working on a language filter and needs examples of swear words that contain the word “shit” but don’t start with it. Like bullshit, dogshit, batshit, etc. Can any of you wise Oppos come up with more? I think we have the…

Life Happenings Life Happenings

Most people don’t buy a car and a house within a week of each other but I’m not most people. Life stuff to follow so you might want to skip this one.

Fingers crossed [Update]

If all goes well we’re going to be putting in an offer on a nice three-car garage with attached house tomorrow. If it goes through that means the POS Camaro gets to come home. Damn, I want this.

Crunch [Update] Crunch [Update]

My wife’s G37X got hit on Saturday. The car in front of her stopped short, she stopped accordingly and then the older Explorer behind her either hit her of his own accord or got pushed in to her by the bro-truck behind him.

Like A Rock Like A Rock

I’m sitting at my desk not feeling well so I thought I’d do a little shit posting instead of work. We all know how misunderstood the Springsteen song Born in the U.S.A. is. While a lot of people, and politicians, think it’s a jingoistic anthem it’s actually a song about a guy whose country has fucked him over. There…

Got another one! Got another one!

There is an underpass right by the office I work in and I’ve seen at least 4 trucks either stuck under it or had their tops ripped open in the past year. It has big warning signs and even lights that flash if your vehicle is too tall. One of the trucks was a Penske rental so I can kind of understand the person not…

He might be lost He might be lost

A friend of mind sent these over to me yesterday. This isn’t exactly the kind of thing you normally see parked in a strip mall on a Monday in February. I’d like to know what the story was on it.

Weekend Follies 

Fuck Ford. Fuck Navistar. And fuck whoever packaged that piece of shit engine in that fucking truck.

Sometimes procrastination pays off.
