“For unclear reasons, even in 2014 we still have a sort of sexual stigma, mostly against women who enjoy sex, especially if it’s frequent and with multiple partners. This, to me, implies a personal sexual dysfunction of the bitchy whiner, rather than the person who enjoys festive boinking, but what do I know? I know that if you’re not spreading disease or children and you’re enjoying it with another responsible, consenting adult, then anyone who complains about your sex life is probably an asshole. Stop calling people names for fucking, yo. It makes you an asshole. And besides, we can all agree that sex feels pretty damn good, so stop raining on other people’s parades and go have some for yourself.”—Felix Clay
Great blog. I found you after you reblogged a few photos of my cars (my current GDB and my previous GC8) as well as my friend's GC8 from my other blog (ryukyu-soul). Keep up the good work.
Damn! I must doing something right!? Never thought I’d get an “ask” from the fame[d]one (fameone)… pun fully intended!
Thank you for your kind words good Sir. When I came across your blogs looking for new and fresh content, I remember thinking to myself that your past and present cars were classy representations of what a Subaru should be. Nothing overly flashy but still made a bold statement.
As much as I want another AE86, I’m going to be patient until I find one in pristine condition that I won’t drive often.
I take care of my car but I drive hard. This is my daily. As a solution, I’m thinking about snagging a Legacy as the daily for work/errands and drive my Impreza only when hitting the roads (nights and weekends)
Get my hands on another GC8, strip it, cage it, hydraulic e-brake, and drive it until it dies. That way, I won’t feel bad about putting Saori through the ringer.
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald (via skrink-la-da-doo)
Those of us who have a genuine passion and love for driving all fantasize about being a race car driver. If you deny this, then you’re probably lying (or your car is too busy scraping the ground with cut springs and replica wheels). This fantastic individual, AE86 enthusiast, family man and active duty U.S. service member, is doing his damndest to pursue those dreams. I feel as though we, collectively, should support him in any way possible.
Here is some background, straight from the horse’s mouth:
“It has been a dream of mine, from a very young age to one day race cars professionally. As a child, the “What do you want to be when you grow up?” cliche’ never dulled my answer, ” A Race Car Driver.” Id say. Here, some twenty years past those first conversations, I still feel that calling. I even enlisted in the USAF, with hopes to fund a racing career in the future. After three and a half years of service, and nearing the end of my enlistment, it is now readily apparent to me that time is of the essence and dreams are seldom obtained by a cautious spirit. The big “How?” was always my disqualifying factor, as I am not yet as financially free as I one day hope to be. When I found out about this program, and the opportunity that it could provide, I knew that it was imperative that I take action to obtain that drivers seat I’m after. I watched the testimonial video at the bottom of the application page, and felt my eyes widen as I recognized a former high school class mate, now Indycar driver. I remembered him telling me his hopes to one day race open wheel cars, and now seeing his own dreams come true, I have found a rebirth of ambition to go after my own. I firmly believe that I have a passion, and willingness to learn, that would do well to serve as my foundation for a career in motorsports.
I have sent an application to Skip Barber Racing School, with hopes to be accepted into their INDYCAR Academy shootout. Only 33 applicants will be selected for the chance to win a scholarship to race in the first rung of the INDYCAR ladder. To be selected, one must first attend the prerequisite courses which are listed below, along with the costs to attend. I must book and pay in full these classes, by the end of april, in order to attend.
3 Day Racing School, April 23-25, $3300.00 2 Day Advanced Racing School, May 13-14, $2600.00
It is my hope to excell in these courses, so that I will be accepted into the INDYCAR Academy, which will cost another $3000.00
Anything will help, even if its just postive vibes sent my way.
Thank you all for the Love and support. It truly means the World.
Why am I supporting this? Because I believe he has what it takes, and he’s a pretty fucking good dude. Good people always deserve their shot.
I found some photos from Winterfest 2012 on my computer. This is back during the 7Tune days (no watermark tho, have fun cropping for your vertical blogs). I’m going to share them with you all. Also, a lot of the cars at the show were slammed to the ground because, you know, that’s the thing in America. People don’t drive, they just circle-jerk and praise their cut springs, bad tuck jobs, and replica wheels. Ok, ok, I’ll be nice. ^_^
It was supposed to rain tonight but the roads are drying up. I’ve had two glasses of bourbon over the past two hours. Which means I need to eat, hydrate, shower and wait two more hours before I can legally get behind the wheel. Hell, it will be damn near midnight before I’m sharp again.
And I’m not even a lightweight.
Maaaaan. Adult problems. -_-
Side note: it’s better to not drive than get a DUI. Looks like I’ll just walk to Mihama and play Wangan Midnight and Initial D.
Answering questions because I don't know to reply to replies
jgz1994 - a single of TE37SLs go for about $600/wheel plus tax. a single Yokohama Advan AD08 is $150. This, of course, is for the specific sizing that I desire. Grand total would be $3000, not including tax, shipping, proper balancing, installation and alignment. I expect to pay closer to $4000 for the whole shebang.
@ginkumo12 - I’m currently at 8J with my SSR Type-C. I do not plan on selling those, just getting them painted and restored to have as a spare set. I’ll likely snag a second set of AD08s for those as well if the tires are up to par. I currently use Federal 595s, which work to my liking in the rain.
This is not a track only setup. Hell, I work every Saturday and haven’t been to the track since I got back to Okinawa. I do, however, go on “spirited drives” on a nightly basis. This is not an exaggeration. Rain or shine. Every. Damn. Day.
The lip/diffuser setup with be from an S203. OEM is preferred unless I find a front lip that hugs the contour lines of the car a bit more.
Full audio is simple. Instead of the stock component speakers, I want coaxial/two-way speakers. A very small sub would be nice, but I’ll pass in favor of not having something in my trunk or extra wiring to worry about. Additionally, I’m looking into a Kenwood, touch screen, head unit with GPS and Bluetooth capability. Something like this.
