Happy Birthday to me

Back in November my wife posed the question to me,  “what do you want for your birthday?”  This was something that I had to think about because last year she bought me, well us, an inversion table that has brought much satisfaction on many occasion.  This year, what is my gift range?  Is this a trick question?  Do I simply ask for new undies or colorful and stylish socks to help with my sock game?  I wasn’t sure and had to put some thought into it.  

Being that I’m kinda into cars, can’t even type this without laughing 🤣😂!  Being that cars are my life, I thought maybe I’ll ask her for a 2018 Still Night Blue Pearl Acura TLX A-Spec.

To be fair this is really the car that she wants so I’ll let her treat herself when the time is right.  

Ok, so maybe I’ll shoot for a car part or two, that should hopefully be an easy ask.  I mean, I have been good for most of the year 😁.

Around Thanksgiving I told her that I have my Christmas and birthday list ready and she asked what was on it.  I rambled off the 3 items for my car and she replied with those magical 7 words that every husband/car enthusiast wants to hear…”maybe we should just buy our own gifts.”  Thats like your parents telling you we are having ice cream for dinner, or you can pick out your own clothes, or better yet, we are moving to Disneyland to live in the Magic Castle.  Whaaaaaaaaat?!?!?! Additional confirmation that she is the one!

Online Black Friday deals were in affect around this time so I was able to capitalize on some amazing deals from Mountune and CJ Pony Parts, which made me one happy camper.  With the packages arriving like a scene from the greatest movie ever…I have been very patient and have not opened one of them yet.  But today is my birthday and something’s getting unboxed.   

Here is my car for reference and the goodies are below, muhahahaha!

Can you guess what’s in the boxes?   Here’s a hint… it’s your typical Ford Focus ST/ Fiesta ST/ Focus RS tuning stater kit.  Well to be fair, it’s the starter kit for most modded cars, but the brands for the parts pictured here are fairly exclusive to Ford vehicles.

The reveal and installs to follow.  Now its time to git ta opening!!!

Yay! Happy dance time!

World’s Greatest Drag Race 7

Motor Trend does it again!

You take one part abandoned air strip runway, add several of the hottest and fastest production cars available to the American market mix in some seasoned drivers and what do you have?  The World’s Greatest Drag Race 7!  And who doesn’t like a good drag race?  Especially one featuring this very desirable list of Exotics and ‘murican muscle.  I would take any of these cars regardless of their podium finish, or lack there of.

I wonder who the top dog will be.

Hmmm…does anyone still drag race for pinks anymore?

Bubba Wallace us picking up where Wendell Scott left off in the 70’s.  Just read this and thought it would be great to share that there is a new face emerging for the Richard Petty team for the 2018 season. 


In the words of the most profound voice in motorsports “Momma, I wanna go fast! ”  Thank you Ricky Bobby.

The “Other” Hamilton?

First off, great story HBO and Bryant Gumbel.  HBO did a Real Sports segment on Lewis Hamilton touching on his racimg career and the adversity he faced being the first African American in the sport of F1.  What was also discussed in this interview segment was the younger Hamilton brother that not too many people hear about.

Nicolas Hamilton is Lewis’ younger brother.  Very supportive, but in the shadows of his very talented and successful older brother, Nicolas has his own story that deserves some light shed upon it.  Born premature and diagnosed with Cerebal Palsy, I’m sure it was difficult to follow in someone’s footsteps, but Nicolas seems to be taking it in stride.  Very successful at online racing he was encouraged by his older brother to give actual racing a go.  Given Nicolas disability he is overcoming the odds and is now competing as a professional race car driver.  The sport of car racing is challenging, and having to heart and stones to compete is something to admire.

Nicolas we will keep an eye out for you.
