    Ownership Verified: Truck life! 2004 GMC Yukon

    So after my first year of owning a house, and the prelude developing more problems, I decided i need something more practical. At first i was looking at things like crossovers so I could pull my jetski, but I decided that if i was going to get something big, I would go all the way. This started...

    I found an Alfa Romeo specialty shop in Metro Detroit!

    I was headed to my uncles house today when I noticed a shop that had an Alfa Romeo out front. Then i saw another one next to it. Then another! Then I realized that just about every car there was an Alfa. Then i noticed there were many more at the empty store front two doors down! I had to turn...

    Michigan86 Spring Meet and Cruise

    Yesterday, Michigan86, the Michigan FRS/BRZ owners club had our spring meet and back roads cruise. We had a pretty large turnout. That proved to be a more a curse than a blessing during cruise. We ended up getting separated by other traffic and others not knowing the route. It was still a lot of...

    Mix different brake pad compounds front to back

    So I'm trying to get the Miata ready for the track this year and I want to get brake pads that are better and more fade-resistant than the regular Autozone pads. I've been looking at EBC Yellowstuff pads but it's a bit expensive for a complete set. My question is, would it be a bad idea to get...

    Looking for TV Shows in Finnish suitable for a beginner

    My friend is trying to learn Finnish and he is looking for some TV shows to help him learn/practice. It doesn't matter if they are kids shows or foreign shows that are dubbed, as long as the language used is simple and suitable for a beginner. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

    Ownership Verified: '94 'Track Day Bro!' Mazda Miata

    Well, I bought a third car. I was originally trying to buy an AW11 MR2 but the seller was dragging his feet on getting a new title (old one was damaged) that I started looking at other cars. The yesterday, my friend sent me a listing for this Miata and I decided why not. The body is rusty but...

    Spied: BRZ/FRS/GT86 Facelifted spotted in Europe

    The facelifted version has been spotted. Looks like it has a new front bumper design, new spoiler (want!) and new taillights. No word on under-the-hood changes but I think it's unlikely since this is just a facelift, not a new generation. I will be buying that spoiler if it makes...

    I'm going to be headed out to Los Angeles from Feb 4th-8th to visit my sister and I'm at a bit of a loss for exactly what do do.

    Making a hallow carbon fiber item from a mold

    So next year, i'm going to be undertaking a project making something out of carbon fiber. It's going to be thick enough that making it solid is not going to be easy or cheap. Is there a way that i can make the entire piece at once but have it hallow? or would it be easier to make the top half...

    FinalGear License Plate frames

    In addition to the FG vinyls, I think a FinalGear license plate frame would be cool. Nothing fancy, just a black frame with the final gear logo on the bottom. I don't know of how we would get them created but I'm open to suggestions. Also, the different size license plates around the world...

    How to raise a spoiler via microcontroller

    So I'm working with a friend on an airbrake for his car. I don't think it would be useful for his driving but the nerd in me wants to make an airbrake. I have pretty much everything figured out except what I need to use to raise the spoiler. I've heard mention of using a "pneumatic actuator" but...

    Jetski fouling spark plugs within minutes

    My neighbor has a jetski from the '90's this is fouling spark plugs within minutes. He said that he can't even get to open water before the plugs are fouled. The engine is a 2stroke 2 cylinder engine. The gas and oil have their own separate tanks. One thing he did say is that a while ago, he was...

    Can't say I'm surprised. Maybe now we can rebuild the city right. I can't help but wonder how it will affect me, seeing as I work in the Rencen. Sources:

    Photos by sevs753

    I figured I would follow in thomas and Andeh's footsteps and make a thread for all my photos. Currently, I have a Nikon P7000 camera. It's not terrible but it's not great either. I'm working on getting better at shot composition, editing, etc before I drop big money on a DSLR and lenses...
