Anyone else a dinosaur like me and still enjoy print magazines? I've always had at least one subscription at any given time, usually several. I've started to let many expire, but now I'm kind of regretting it and wanting to start them back up. Most recently I've had Grassroots Motorsports, Road and Track, and Car and Driver. I really miss Modified magazine, and before that Turbo & High Performance, and well before that Sport Compact Car
It's one of my favorite things, especially when a good winding road is involved. I was remembering this trip to South Dakota's Black Hills, which is one of my favorites. Not necessarily ideal for "spirited" driving, but some beautiful winding, narrow roads with incredible views. What's your favorite driver friendly road trip?

Since it came up on here earlier, someone asked if a Liberty Walk kit would look good on their FR-S/BRZ/GT86. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the wide body craze. I have an issue with the exposed rivets look, and generally I lean toward a more conservative aesthetic.

Time to clean up the FC for storage, because it's so nice to start a squeaky clean car inside and out in the spring! A little Final Finish to keep the outside dust free, and some vacuuming and light scrubbing to keep the interior fresh.
Looking back through more shots from this summer, thinking about what would have been another Rise and Drive meet today, and came across this incredible clean build... I tend to stay focused on cars for my blog, but now I regret now getting more shots of this!
For my FC, I am currently using the stock Mazdaspeed 6 knob, which a like the height and feel of in the FC, but the 6 speed shift pattern is irritating me a bit (FC is 5 speed only). Anyone know some similar aftermarket options?
First Saturday of the month during warm weather months is the local super car meet. I miss heading out in the morning for those, but can't complain about the relatively mild weather we've had. Here's some of my favorite shots from this past summer...
Can't wait for next year!
Another wheel Wednesday to fantasize about glorious wheels. HRE have some of the best in the world, who wouldn't want a set? (Unfortunately I think they'd exceed the value of either of my cars, maybe even both combined! 😆)
Is there any particular car that you had an opportunity to buy and considered buying, but then ultimately went with something different? Only to find, that car has since appreciated or become much harder to find? For me it's the first generation NSX. I had a bit of money at the time, and they had depreciated to a point where you could get one in decent shape for just under $30k I want to say. I kick myself to
RE Sugiyama? I have to admit I'm a sucker for obscure/rare parts, so when I came across this strut tower brace, I had to have it. I'd never even heard of RE Sugiyama before, anyone know anything about the company?
