As you can probably guess from the photos, there’s a theme. See, there’s a ClubRoadster sticker contest. These are my entries. I went downtown early in the morning and played on the empty streets with my car and camera. Well worth the lost sleep. And now for a little EXIF data for the four photos. […]
One of the final things needed for The Sharka Rebuild project was some paint work on the driverâ€™s side lower door panels. Being an extremely professional car guy, I decided rattle cans were the only way to go.
Drive-in movies still exist. I have proof! Photos!!! If you can call digital pix “proof” of anything that is…. anyway, check out my small report on taking a Mazda3 to a drive-in.
August 8th, 2009 — Elise seats in a Miata
There were a few more photos to take of my spiffy new Elise seats. Me sitting in the seat, an Elise seat in an NB Miata (my wife’s car), and some seatbelt receiver detail shots. And here they all are! Enjoy.

After months of sitting in my living room, my Lotus Elise seats have been relocated to their rightful place – mounted in Sharka! Check out the post for lots-o-pix of the seats and the seat brackets.

I’ve been waiting for just the perfect weekend to put on Sharka 2’s new stripes. It’s been either too cold or too windy for over a month now. The sun finally came out and the wind slowed to a breeze and I went to work. This is the 4th time I’ve done a full …
The big, Motor Trend sponsored auto show came though town recently. My camera and a few buddies from work went with me for the opening on Friday afternoon. Though MANY manufacturers were missing, it was a good time. The event was lightly attended, yet the cars I wanted to shoot were very popular. I didn’t […]
Yes, I say “sorta.” Because I didn’t take many photos. Because I punched myself in the face with a crowbar. . . . . . So there I was, all done with the front suspension and the front chin spoiler install, when it was time to turn my attention to the rear. I had my […]
Where do I start? I got a long weekend thanks to my company’s new found love of MLK Day and the weather here in Albuquerque was 59-61 all three days, so I took advantage and spent most of the daylight hours outside or in the garage. My hands are cut up and coated in wax […]
