DOTS: Scotland edition

DOTS: Scotland edition

Scimitar!

I took these last week in Scotland, which turned out to have way more interesting cars than I would have expected (and a shocking number of Miatas).

The friend I was staying with decided that she finally needed to own a car, now that she’s not living in cities with obnoxiously useful public transportation. I valiantly tried to explain to her that she needed an old Land Rover, but...

[Reads FP story about a man charged with a felony for using a gadget to try and avoid tolls]

“A thing like this could pay for itself” says practically every commenter on the article.

Dear FP commenters: your conception of risk versus reward, coupled with almost certainly owning a car, terrifies me deeply.

If I $12k to blow and didn’t already have an XJ8, I’d be all up in that. Super V8s are rare enough as it is, let alone looking that nice.

Oppo, let's talk lube

Or grease, whatever. Please teach me about greasing things. The check arm roller in my door is squeaky. Last time this happened, I sprayed it down with silicon lubricant, which worked, but that was only three months ago, and since getting to the roller involves taking apart my entire door, that’s really not something I’d want to repeat quarterly.

My knowledge of greases and lubricants...

This this beer tastes exactly like seven year old me thought beer would taste. 

This this beer tastes exactly like seven year old me thought beer would taste. 

And, honestly, I’m not sure that that’s a good thing. It basically tastes like cream soda with a drop of malt.

The wonderful thing about British car ownership

The wonderful thing about British car ownership

Is that after you spend ~$500 and over three hours at the mechanic, you no longer care the moment you get behind the wheel. You just embrace the fact that for one brief moment, everything works perfectly. It’s like living in Berlin in 1945. Sure, those Russians hanging out to the east of the city seem a biiiit suspicious, but hey, the Reich is gone.

On a related note, I was watching old-new...

I present the recipe for the perfect Bloody Mary. 

I present the recipe for the perfect Bloody Mary. 

Take one 16oz glass.

Fill 1/5 with ice.

Fill with vodka of choice until ice floats to 1/3.

Fill remainder with Spicy V8 up to 2cm from rim.

Grind pepper until your hand feels fatigued.

Quickly shake ten drops of Worcestershire sauce.

Vigorously pat a bottle of Tabasco sauce 20 times.

Top with a dash of celery salt.

Note: do not use celery, it is a vile weed.

Stir vigorously.

Sip and ensure that the...

Couple walks by and the guy turns to my car and says to the woman “now that’s a Jag.”

It is a Jag, thankfully, which means I could hear that comment as clearly as if I had a window down.

I also just bought this Gose hybrid thing. I haven’t tried it yet, but expectations are high

OMFG

OMFG

I stopped for gas tonight. Since the gas tax went up in New Jersey, it no longer matters where I stop for gas*.

I get out of the car. Open the tank. Swipe my card. Remove the nozzle. Press Premium. Go to inset nozzle. The hose hits Plus. I go to press Premium. It’s locked out. I cancel. I return the nozzle.

Half-assed upholstery repairs with Honeybunchesofgoats

Half-assed upholstery repairs with Honeybunchesofgoats

 

Problem: torn bolster.

Half-assed solution: stick patch under fabric

Lightly stitch with an upholstery needle and invisible thread.

It doesn’t look good, but all I really wanted was to make it less immediately apparent than it was with yellow foam showing through.

You know, that resist thing really isn't working. 

You know, that resist thing really isn't working. 

I say this as someone who is probably to the hard left of everyone here except for the filthy Europeans and their wannabe Canadian and Australian colonies, and as someone who is truly horrified by what has been going on and what it means for America’s ideals and long term influence in the world.

It’s a nice sentiment. It’s worth reading. It’s worth acting on. But at this point, it’s just...

Sigh. I think someone, probably at my work parking garage, is actively fucking with my car.

All of these have appeared in the past month. How fucking pathetic does your life have to be to feel jealous of a fifteen year old car?

So, apparently Porsche announced a car or something. 

So, apparently Porsche announced a car or something. 

Did anyone hear about this? Something something FWD Porsche Catera or something? I was looking for stories about it, but it seems that the media and their semi-autonomous social offshoots have buried yet another story. SAD.

There are a lot of things I would do if I won the lottery.

But I’m pretty sure the first thing would be to just buy out Japanese Classics’ entire inventory.

Starting with this for $9,995(!)

Moderately clean engine bay. 

Moderately clean engine bay. 

By moderately, I mean I took some towels whose time had come and scrubbed vigorously. There’s no way I’m introducing even the slightlest amount of liquid to that shit show of wires leading to things I don’t understand when I have a Jag that miraculously doesn’t have electrical problems.

Oh, hey there. 

Oh, hey there. 

My coworker did not understand why it was necessary to stop and take photos.

Tesla should have stuck to rebadging Lotuses. It’s hard to believe that something so awesome looking could be related to something as characterless and soulless as the Model S.
