The Continues

I realized I hadn't done a follow up to "The Beginnings", so here's a small catch up to current. I'm not living in a trailer on the side of a mountain about 15 minutes North of Victoria, British Columbia, and there has been a fair number of cars since getting here! But we'll pick up where we left off in the beginnings post. Treat this as part 2, if you haven't read #1, click the link above first. The next car was an 1985 FB RX7 GSL. There's a big story and write up with it: HERE.

DQ Philosophy part 1.

People often ask my advice on how to improve their cars for certain types of motorsport, and with my expertise in doing things for cheap/free my opinion seems to matter to them as I've gone damn fast.

DQ and I had the opportunity to head up island for an impromptu drift day organized by Speed Hero regular Dugwillis.

We had to stop and pick up one of our two car posse on the way to the track. The FC is being kept alive by nothing...

Speed Hero Japan, the Lost Tapes

It turns out that moving pictar technology has improved since the days of the zoetrope. That being said, head on over the Speed Hero's Youtube home to check out those rare moments when we remember to take the lens cap off. Who knows, we may even learn to edit video at some point. There are only a couple vids at this point including this long lost gem from the magical summer of 2009.

Somebodies got a case of the Mondays.

After the mind blowing day Sunday turned out to be we feared that nothing could top it. We made our way back to Nikko Monday morning thinking what could possibly be going on at 10:30 on a Monday morning?
