Did Apple start this nonsense of having someone standing on stage trying to single-handedly brainwash their audience?  Only Jobs could pull that off and even he was pretty nauseating if you didn’t live within Apple’s reality distortion field.

Funnily enough, I bought something and she didn’t.

Free car cover

Free car cover

Anyone in the Los Angeles area want a car cover? I have one I’m not using since I sold my last car. It’s listed as “Coverite Bondtech Car Cover, Size C” and is supposed to fit cars from 14’ 3 to 15’ in length, although it barely managed to cover my old RSX so I’d say it’s for compacts only.

Normal cars are banned so it’s mostly golf carts here, but it looks like they allow some very compact oddities to run around too.

Anyone else know about this magazine? I signed up for the Readly 2 week free trial just for this month’s S2000 article but their content is like mainlining BaT with a slight Euro/UK flavor.

I like it more than the new hatch but of course that doesn’t matter because it’s not coming to the US.

Car show weekend

I’m taking my mostly car-agnostic wife to the LA auto show and Radwood this weekend. Her Infiniti Q50 lease is up next year and she wants something with more personality that she would love “the way I love my S2000.” “It’s not love,” I replied, “it’s just indulging in a weird automotive fetish.”

When the fun car ... isn't

When the fun car ... isn't

Late night confession: at freeway speeds, my S2000 feels like the suspension is made of melted cheese. I’m trying to find time to get it checked out and probably get new shocks and bushings. Hopefully that does it ...

And I took a video for the buyer of my RSX. I will miss this bucket dearly. Also, I just got back from 2 weeks on the East Coast ... don't know how you people deal with this "snow" nonsense.

So about Ford ...

So about Ford ...

I say this mostly in jest, but ... maybe Raj Nair got booted over the Focus RS. I just find it fishy that Ford is axing their US market cars not that long after dumping their President of North America.

Los Angeles near the Petersen Museum around 4 pm, silver AP1 with a JALOPNIK sticker on the wind deflector. You know who you are.
