    Cancer Sucks

    It's been many years since I've actively visited here, let alone posted. Life, work, family all took up a tiny piece of time to a point where visiting this place became a luxury I could not afford. Hearing this news still hurts like a dagger to the guts. I still remember finding this site...

    A look inside Japan's huge car auctions

    The whole of Series 2 is on youtube, but I'm not sure exactly what is in each episode. Well worth searching for them.

    No 56k: Parked like an idiot

    No, that was a Honda Accord that drove into the parked cars at full tilt. The occupants of the other cars came around later.

    Ownership Verified: My 1990 Mitsubishi Sapporo

    The wheels on it at the moment are a lot better. They fit more with the age of the car. Keep the others as the winter tyres.

    Game: Who likes Classic / Retro Gaming?

    My cousin and I used to play Network Q Rally when it came out. We'd sit there the entire night playing some of the 50 km stages, fuelled on paprika chips and soft drink. You would get mechanical damage too over the stage, so for the last 15 kims, the car would be continually jumping out of...

    Ownership Verified: My 1990 Mitsubishi Sapporo

    The magna was based on the galant, with some extra width in it. It was a uniquely australian car though, even though the design was pretty similar.

    Ownership Verified: My 1990 Mitsubishi Sapporo

    They sort of did, in another form.. My parents had a Magna, and I occasionally saw a grey import Sapporo drive by, and I always wanted that. Ours just seemed so conservative and un-Japanese compared to the Sapporo. If you get the Elite model, it came with the digital dash and single spoke...

    Yet another "What should I buy?" thread

    Test drive each of them. Which one do you 'see yourself' in the most?

    Food! [The thread that started this section]

    Still had some leftover pork belly from NYE, so we bought some spicy packet ramen, cooked it up, added some of the pork belly gravy, added bamboo shoots and dried mushroom, some barbecued corn, and tore up the pork belly into it. Topped it all off with a soft boiled egg. Fantastic.

    Food! [The thread that started this section]

    I cooked half, my girlfriend cooked the other half. Some of it, like the consomme was made the day before, as you had to filter it through some muslin to get the clear pink liquid, and to serve it chilled.

    Calling all Floridonians

    We were in Orlando in early to mid December, and the weather was unseasonably cold. It would drop to almost below freezing at night, but at least the theme parks were mostly empty. We didn't do much in Orlando apart from the theme parks and the outlet malls, but I can't say I'm an expert on the...
