Rented a truck off turo for $50 and trailer for $60 ans tower Stacey to my uncles barn/house for temporary storage until I can work out somewhere to store long term while I am in training for the navy. Felt so sad leaving her so far away, but the move is only temporary...
Really, really, really itching to get some racing/autocrossing in, and just generally missing driving the FC. Forza Motorsports 7 just isn't scratching the itch today. Plus the events are even fun to shoot. Come on spring!
Thought my Wheelwell folks might appreciate this one. Some of the most fun stuff at the Chicago Auto Show is in these little sideshows. This wild custom car is from a local collector, the Klairmont Kollection. #chicagocarlife
I was fortunate enough to get Media Passes for the 2018 Chicago Auto Show. I had an absolutely amazing time and this is my coverage of the vehicles I got a chance to look at. Hope you enjoy.

I feel like this came out of left field. Apparently Dyson, the vacuum company, is making electric cars now. lol. What do you all think about this?

Had to take the bumper off the car to fit the wheel lifters, but we got it! Had to pull the car out of the garage with a tow strap too. We pushed the car into the space and she's just awaiting a dyno tune! Felt bad for anyone behind us because we were going about 10 mph the entire way. The truck driver was awesome and apparently had owned quite a few Silvia's and 240sx's as well as
Transmission and exhaust is out of the car. Thank GOD! That took way too many months. Now to get the clutch and flywheel out so I can replace the rear main seal, and then install the new lightweight flywheel and performance clutch.
The aero on modern race cars is really remarkable, Acura displays their Daytona prototype racer at the Chicago Auto Show. It looks like it could generate downforce standing still.
