I just realized I haven’t updated my webnets with news about the little red road rocket. Here is the skinny. A few weeks ago I put some money into a new motor for her. The shop ordered one from a rebuilder in northern Cali that tears them down to a bare crank and puts them [...]
Turns out the p-car isn’t as healthy as once thought. I had the coolant system flushed a few weeks back. First mistake I made was not taking the car to my normal shop. Instead I took it to some jacko more local to my house. Boy did that ever go wrong. Not only did he [...]
Update on the P-Car saga. I took her into the doctors a few weeks ago. A wonderful indie Porsche garage called Chris’s German Auto. Fantastic service, and very knowledgeable people. Let me back up. If you are just joining the party, my little hotrod Porsche Boxster had oil show up in its coolant tank. Long [...]
First thing is first. Tires. She needs new tires in the worst way. And a good alignment so she doesn’t torch the new set quite as fast. I plan on asking the place that is mounting them and aligning her to put a more conservative alignment on her. I don’t ever plan on doing autocross [...]
Nissan: 65k miles. Oil change, tire pressure check (33lbs front, 30lbs rear), new belts. Porsche: 85k miles. Pulled off of blocks, charge battery, put air back in tires (32lbs front, 36lbs rear), checked oil level, took her for a rip around the neighborhood. Triumph: 5k miles. Oil change, tire pressure check (33lbs front, 37lbs rear), [...]
I spent the afternoon diagnosing and cleaning up under the hood of Cassandra’s lil’ hotrod. What did I find? Well, her intake was so soaked with oil that took an entire roll of paper towels to sop up. If you know this car, you could tell right away why. If not, here is the scoop. [...]
So what have I been up to in the past month… I changed the oil in the Breaker of Hip bones. I used Shell Rotella synthetic, and it seems to have done quite well so far. Her shifts are pretty smooth, and her clutch is as good as ever. The oil is marketed as big [...]
Yeah yeah i know it isn’t 2010. Quickie out of iMovie and that is what happens. And yes, this is an embedded video on my website. Thanks for noticing Movie after the break.
I think I might take another ride today. Especially considering what kind of a day we are having up here today. Yeah. Following the wife as she drives topless sounds like just about the best idea ever. I RULE!
Had an eventful weekend. We had a wedding in our house! One of the first friends we made up here used our living room to get hitched. I was hesitant to the whole thing, but I am glad we went through with it. It was lovely and I got some decent pictures of it. I [...]
