Saw a Z3 in the parking lot earlier...

This is not it. But it got me thinking...

If an M coupe is known as the clownshoe, would the Z3 vert be a clown sandal?

(fixed my stupid, hope nobody noticed...)

Got a hotfix pushed last night that keeps my layout tabs from jumping around, awesome!

Also, a small rant regarding management.

Why I love having a dedicated CAD manager:

Someone to offer advice for tough design problemsSomeone to help keep our plans looking consistent and cleanSomeone to intercede when an engineer says, "This should take, what, like, 30 minutes at most".

Why I hate having a...

I think the new Hyundai Santa Cruz looks far-and-away better aesthetically than the new Titan, the new Ram Rebel, and the new Raptor.

My 1st rental car of 2015...

Nissan Versa SV sedan. Too much sexy, you can't handle the sexxxy:

The Patriot is in the shop having very expensive surgery; this is my whip until tomorrow morning.

Driving notes:

Excellent visibility.

You are acutely aware of the exterior dimensions of this vehicle from the driver's seat, which is confidence-inspiring, and probably will lead to my demise.

You are also acutely aware of how close...

Zen and the Electric Car

Zen and the Electric Car

I've been giving this some serious thought.

Electric cars are coming. Sure, we play around with hybrids now; first the Prii and Insights for the early adopters and those looking to green-wash everything, and now the 918s and NSXs are taking the performance of hybrids to new levels. But hybrids are just a nuance of a larger trend at play, and I think we all know it. Electric cars are coming,...

Cruella Deville, your car has arrived.

Just found this on CL.

Funny thing is, my family member just did the service on this thing at his shop in Georgetown a week ago.

Odd to see something so... distinct... twice in such a short amount of time.

Apparently, it's a Mercury Cougar under all that sheetmetal.

Spotted this weekend; it was absolutely cherry.

Nothing quite so awkward

as showing up early for the metal show.

I’m a 38yo preteen. But this G&T will keep me company, for a little while at least.

Rear-engine Corvette!

Rear-engine Corvette!

Though it required some modification to get the engine in the back...

This orange one was rear-engined for a short time as well, but the engine was removed not long before this picture was taken:

File to: Things I Should Know By Now

File to: Things I Should Know By Now

Item #1: Infiniti made a hard-top convertible version of the G37. Saw one on the road this morning, and I feel like I should have known that these exist, but somehow, here I am today, just learning about them...

Item #2: Nothing good happens on the internet after midnight. Especially when I start interacting with people that I’m not familiar with at 2am. I should know better by now, and yet...

A couple concerts coming up this summer

A couple concerts coming up this summer

I’d really like to go to both of them, but that may be outta reach.

One is Talib Kweli.

The other is Mon Laferte.

For reference, I’m a middle-aged white dude who doesn’t speak Spanish. To be fair, I’d probably be just as out-of-place at a Tool concert.
