I met some buddies at the track on a warm January afternoon. We had the whole place to ourselves, so in between zooming around, there were a few pix snapped. I brought my F3 film camera. I savored every click of the shutter.

This past solstice (12/21/2010), I found myself standing out in the middle of the desert under almost complete cloud cover in the middle of the night. With my camera.
I don’t manage to get out to the track to race around very often. And it’s even less often that there are guys with cameras. So I’m pretty happy to be able to make this blog post.

It hasn’t quite been two months since painting (I was supposed to wait at least that long before applying vinyl), but I could not wait to install these tail lights any longer. Plus, the nice weather is due to go away soon in favor of winter. So. Without further delay, I present Sharka’s New Ass!
A revlimiter.net-style preview of some new Sharka parts.
(If you ever questioned my sanity, just steer clear of this post. There’s none to be found inside.)

It’s been a while since I did a photo post. I think this photo deserved it. This is the first posed Sharka photo since getting the turbo installed and running. And what an evening…

In April of 2000, I had no interest in Miatas. Or getting a new car at all. I was happy with what I was driving. I was about to get married. A new car was far from my mind.
And then I drove a Miata for the first time.
I’ve been promising Adam over at Roadster Garage some photos and text about Sharka for quite a while now. Like, months. Like, I’m embarrassed it took me so long to send him photos. However, the feature finally came together when I had a clean car on a free afternoon and decent light to shoot with.

A full photoshoot of Sharka in the abandoned AT&SF Railyard. Could there ever be a better place for car pix?

What happens when early model Miatas get angry? Hilarity ensues.
