Outta the way, SPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED6 comin' through Outta the way, SPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED6 comin' through

My snowy commute this morning was very fun... when I wasn’t behind traffic that was doing 10-15mph under a reasonable speed on plowed roads.

Your car isn’t a “unicorn” if you have to qualify it with paint color, transmission type, interior options, etc. My old 1988 Mazda 323 GTX was a unicorn, full stop. My 2002 Miata with Emerald Mica paint, 6MT, Appearance Package #2, and a power antenna is not a unicorn, regardless of how few cars were made to that…

...this exact four-rotor RX-3 is going to have a prominent position in it. The paint, wheels, and NOISE are just absolutely perfect. please gib.

The first item from my carbon fiber Miata parts wishlist has arrived: the steering column cover.

Pulled the Mazdaspeed 6 into my garage today and nailed the parking. I usually leave a bit of room at the front, but not today. 

Today birthday. Today birthday.

I was going to be ice racing up at Georgetown Lake this weekend but the races were canceled due to ice quality. So what the hell else am I going to do??

I found CarbonMiata recently and I’ve been lusting over their inventory for the past few days. This is the stuff I want to buy for my NB:

Just a reminder that you can find lots of car content on my Instagram (@MarquetteLa), but also I just started a new IG account dedicated to my virtual car photography in Gran Turismo Sport (@DigitalMarq). Carry on!

This is my FIA-accredited (lol) championship esports race from Gran Turismo Sport a few weeks ago. 14 laps around Suzuka in the 2017 Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 car, alongside 17 other drivers on the grid. I secured pole position by 0.743 seconds, but things get spicy on the second lap.

A wheelchair cannot fit through this space. A person using crutches could not safely pass by. An elderly person should not have to walk across loose stones on a slope (slope not seen well in the photo) to get by a parked pickup truck. This is not even a particularly large truckbed. You may not use the sidewalk, but…

It's HOT today! It's HOT today!

Let’s cool off with my most popular YouTube video (9k views in 4 years, ooooooooo)

A friend of mine was cleaning out his watch collection a few months ago and sent me a couple of cheap quartzes that he didn’t wear anymore. After swapping out the battery and taking a link out of the bracelet, I’m wearing this Citizen for the first time today.

Helped my roommate go out and buy a brand-new 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 on Saturday. I don’t know much about bikes myself, but I do know that 199 horsepower from a vehicle weighing less than 500 lbs is fucking fast.
