I sent an email via Autotrader to a place in Houston that had an ‘07 V50 T5 AWD. I get an immediate reply. Then a phone call. Then a text. Of course this is the same day that my wife is having surgery, so I’m not exactly in a responsive mood. Over the next 48 hours I get no fewer than 8 voicemails, 10 texts and a…
It’s been three weekends of non-activity on my Alfa. This Sunday it was 103 degrees ambient in my garage. The heat index was almost 115.
Try... try not to think too hard about it.
Then I’m taking a $5 bill and playing some pinball.
Found a guy with an Alfa 3.0 V6 from a Milano, but it's in Pensacola and he doesn't want to ship. Pick-up only. If anyone is planning to come to Austin anytime soon, I'd compensate for your time to load, etc. Probably beer and BBQ, but damn fine beer and BBQ.
So I wanna play some old games on my old Wii (not WiiU). The cheapass third party controller I bought is useless. Trying to play Rogue Leader is more or less impossible, I think due to the unreliable analog controls. Same with arrow accuracy in Zelda games.
As some of you might recall, my little brother won a 2012 Camaro SS 45th Anniversary from GM during the 2011 Super Bowl. The dealer even paid his license and taxes if he'd agree to appear in promotions and let them use the car from time to time in parades and such.
Just bought a fully-functional one of these, minus the accessories, for $20 on Craigslist. A little older but it'll get the job(s) done.
To clarify, this is what I saw yesterday.
I had an argument with my wife recently about this, and I lost. We were driving on TX 183 headed south. She had the cruise set on 70 and was in the left lane, camping out. Other cars were continually passing her on the right, several honking or flashing lights. I finally could keep my peace no more and asked her to…
Can I just posit a quick rant about the Circuit of the Americas? I've been trying to get work there, on their communications team, since May 25, 2010. I've sent resumes, letters, befriended staff on LinkedIn, and last month it seemed to possibly pay off. I FINALLY made a connection with a well-placed employee. We…
Bike commuters, I don't know how you do it. I rode 6 blocks from my office to get my hair cut. Construction workers stopped me at an intersection where they're replacing some sewer lines. I waited. When it was my turn my foot slipped out of the pedal clip. The guy in the Audi A4 convertible across from me, "Go you…
A photo of the original Whole Foods Market on Lamar. Note the collection of awesome Japanese rides (and one ass engined Nazimobile).
Someone talk me out of this.
Is there anything a true gearhead can drive that has an auto gearbox?
Anyone get the new My Bloody Valentine record yet? I need to. Priming myself with Loveless today.
So my bass amp is down. It's a 1991 Trace Elliot 1210v that I bought used from bass Emporium (RIP) about 6 years ago. It was a custom rig for a local bassist who endorsed them back in the 90s. He played with Eric Johnson among others. ANYWAY, because of its custom nature they're having problems digging up the original…
