The *Real* Story of My Day with Wrong Wheel Drive (41%)

The *Real* Story of My Day with Wrong Wheel Drive (41%)

I took a business trip down to Irvine again this week, so in order to make up for being in Irvine most of the time I took Friday off so I could go carve some canyons with Wrong Wheel Drive (41%). Here’s how it went!

I surprised even myself by rousing myself at 5:00 AM with little difficulty, and I was out on the road by 6:00. There were more cars out here than I expected, but that’s what they...

Met Some Oppos, Today. 

Met Some Oppos, Today. 

Early this afternoon, I made my way over to Greensboro, NC, to go meet some fellow Opponauts. It was a good time.

So it was me, Justin Westbrook, his friend Favian (I hope I’m spelling your name right), m-b-w (Michael), a guy called Sean, and Sean’s friend Tucker.

Michael was there first, then we pulled in about 15 minutes later, Westbrook and Favian came a few minutes after us, and Sean and...

PNW Fall Chill: September 7th & 8th in Portland

PNW Fall Chill: September 7th & 8th in Portland

The people have spoken, and the fall PNW Oppo Meet will be on the weekend of September 7th & 8th. Mark your calendars!

I’m about to go to the woods for the week, so I’ll be completely off Oppo until Saturday. Once I return, I’ll begin planning possible day trips. I’ve only got vague ideas right now of “a drive involving State Route 47" and “something in the Gorge”; if you have any ideas...

I will be in/close to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a week starting Sunday. Any Oppos nearby? Also, what stuff is there to do in the area?

Since the Odyssey is fixed, we will be driving it from Kissimmee, Florida to South Carolina and we’ll be staying there for a week. I’ve never been here before so the only thing I know of is the beach and that’s it. Any cool car related places nearby? And are there any Oppos in the area who’d be down to meet up or something?

NC Oppo Meet? 

NC Oppo Meet? 

A few weeks ago, four of us on here (m-b-w, Justin Westbrook, A guy that left early to get ice cream, and I), met in the parking lot of a Whole Foods in Greensboro. It was a good time, and I think we should do it again.

I think we should change the location, to a more central location, if there are no issues with that. Using Google Maps, I have discovered that Chapel Hill is roughly 45-50...

So, I'm a go for Detriot this Saturday.

I’ll be getting there a bit later then planned on due to taking delivery of the Fit right when the dealer opens at 9:00am, & the border is always an unknown how long it will be. Hopefully I’ll be in after lunch. Anyways, I have a few places I want to visit. I even signed up for karting this year, so you kick my butt. Any one want tag along?

Hagerty is also sponsoring an coffee truck that will be serving espresso, & cappuccinos. It is May 6th, 8am-11am, 355 Confederation Parkway, Concord, Ontario. The free giveway is a ceramic coating too.

Charlotte to Nashville

Charlotte to Nashville

Here is the short story with photos of my trip to the Nashville Oppo meet by way of the Tail of the Dragon.

I got on the road mid morning after saying goodbye to the pup by taking him for an extra long walk. The drive to Asheville was smooth, even though the flooding earlier this week left a couple of slides and downed trees next to the road. I took a break in Asheville for fuel for the car and...

PNW Spring Oppo Meet Pitch: Please Advise

PNW Spring Oppo Meet Pitch: Please Advise

After my weekend in Squamish , I decided that PNW Oppo should do a trip up the Sea to Sky Highway which according to dangerousroads.org is “It’s one of the world’s most spectacular seaside drives and is a veritable invitation for a road trip.” Also... a dangerous road (although less so after the 2010 Olympics refresh). I can guarantee you, it is one of the most if not the most scenic drives in...

Oppo Northeast Mini Meetup! Here's the refined Greenwich Concours d'Elegance "Plan:" Attend the Euro day on June 3rd, get lunch after.  

Oppo Northeast Mini Meetup! Here's the refined Greenwich Concours d'Elegance "Plan:" Attend the Euro day on June 3rd, get lunch after.  

The new plan is that there isn’t a plan! Based on the responses to my previous post (which you can check out here for info re: the event itself ) the smartest thing to do would be to play it by ear via Oppo posts, and only attend the European day (Sunday, June 3rd) because it was mind-blowing last time, whereas the American day wasn’t far enough removed from your local classic car show to be...

Oppo meet is good. 

Oppo meet is good. 

There are 5 of us. Moves-Like-Senna, Toni Cipriani, Tapas, a member from Opposite Talk, & Me. It’s busy here, long wait times. We are doing single races (to avoid the wait time of a booking a race), we just booked one race for Oppo. Instead of racing randoms, it will be a race for the pride.

Winning this “prize” for coming 1st in karting during the Wales oppomeet. It’s now off the car but I do plan on framing it as an amusing keepsake.

Biturbo and his X19 received one too for winning a different category. I think it’s a structural part of his Fiat now.

North Jersey Area Oppos! Lend Me Your Ears!

North Jersey Area Oppos! Lend Me Your Ears!

Good day fellow Oppos! It is now that I finally expand the Tri State Annual Meetup , and create a new form of Meetup. I’ve put a lot of thought and planning into this, so I will lay out the new plans, and hope to see many new faces come out to this event. There are a handful of choices, but I’m not doing a poll for it, I am going to explain the choices and the pros and cons of each as I see it...

Had a great time at the recent Spring Cruise in Vancouver? Or bummed you couldn’t make it? Have I got good news for you: I’m proposing a Fall Oppo meet in Portland, and everyone’s invited! (Final repost, for weekday crowd.)

CarsofFortLangley did a fantastic job organizing the cruise to be a fun adventure on a scenic sporty highway. But as much as I enjoy taking curves with three digits on my...
