homecoming...


oh, and my LS400 (UCF10) finally came home from the body shop. its been sitting at the shop for 2 years while we battled insurance. we ended up losing. and then it sat for another year at a friends body shop, he did the work for a trade, so he took his time. dont really mind though, its not like we have a shortage of cars here. its sitting on stock air, and its dumped cause the battery is out. ill be installing coilovers as soon as i get it re registered and the interior straightened out. theres a preview.

track stars.

may, as always, turns into the busiest month of the year. i started a new job with ford. im in the middle of starting all of my ford certs, then i move to diesel training. should be fun, the money is pretty good, so im not complaining. we ran off to button willow on my day off this week to hang out with the lotus challenge guys and their personal track day. it was so nice. the roster was under 20 cars, and it was an all day free for all. well, they paid to get in, but you get where im going. scooby brought out his super hatch. i finally got to get some pics of it. i think someone had asked me to post up pics of the hatch, so there you go. ill have more up in another entry dedicated to his car. its an awesome piece of work. he basically did all the work himself, and machined most of the parts for the suspension. his sway bar setup alone put its way ahead of most cars on track.

booze life.

normally, id only talk cars here, but last night was somethin special. so i get a call to go to santa monica for a Laphroaig (pronounced La-Froy) tasting. now, ive been to several tastings in the past year, and theyve all been different. some brands you get alot of pours, some brands you get a little. Laphroaig was definitely not the latter. they served up 18 year, 25 year, and 10 year cask strength. all for the low low price of free. fantastic. well, i paid parking and for a beer at the bar. the presentation as nice, and set in the outdoor lounge at the Shangri-La hotel on Ocean. swanky type place that i normally wouldnt be caught at. but hey, free scotch calls. appetizers are brought out, the rep from Laphroaig goes up on stage, Mr. Simon Brooking. his job is to basically be the life of the party. and what a presenter, he was. keeping everyone laughing and having a good time isnt easy. but a little bit of high dollar scotch always helps.

so the drinks keep pouring, and the crowd is goin nutso. i meet up with some friends of a friend, and we end up hangin around for a while to kill time before our dinner reservation which we managed to miss completely. but for good reason, while we were waiting Simon comes over and asks us if we enjoyed the scotch. well, what bad things could we say? none, whatsoever. he excuses himself, and comes back a few minutes later with 2 bottles in hand. one, unavailable for the US, bottle of Laphroaig Triple Wood, and one Ardmore 30 year. our jaws collectively dropped. lets pour. now, im not gonna get into tasting talk and this and that, just trust me, in that it was amazing. so, good reason for missing the dinner reservation right? yeah, of course, a free bottle of scotch worth over 400 dollars, and one free bottle that you cant even get in the states. id say thats a good way to end a friday night in So Cal.


man in the kilt, Mr Simon Brooking.

the 400 dollar bottle of Ardmore 30

and the super, Laphroaig Triple Wood
