Volvo C90 Hype! Volvo C90 Hype!

Apparently Volvo tweeted this last night but took it down right away. Someone got a hold of this grainy version. It does look official, let’s hope it’s real.

PRI 2015 PRI 2015

I was fortunate enough to attend the Performance Racing Industries trade show this weekend as a representative of the Purdue FSAE team. After a lot of hard work getting sponsors and parts for our car this year, I was able to explore a bit.

Hope for Volvo Motorsports! Hope for Volvo Motorsports!

Björn Annwall has been appointed as the new head of Marketing, Sales and Services of Volvo Cars, replacing Alain Visser, who has moved to marketing and sales for Geely. If you may remember, Alain Visser was the spearhead of the infamous decision last December that Volvo would pull out of motorsports. At the time, he…

Cars of Purdue: Episode 2 Cars of Purdue: Episode 2

I did not keep my promise of weekly updates, but I thought I’d share the cars I’ve seen around since my last update.

I rode in this today. I rode in this today.

First meeting and cruise for Purdue Automotive Performance Association was tonight. I’m still waiting for a parking pass, so my car is sitting 1000 miles away. Man the BRZ is great.

New Mercedes Rear Wing New Mercedes Rear Wing

Extremely beautiful. It aims to reduce drag and I think it will only be used at Spa and Monza.

Cars of Purdue, 8/17/15 Cars of Purdue, 8/17/15

Today and yesterday are move-in days at Purdue, and I thought I’d reignite this series from Bandit and YSI! These were actually taken yesterday, but I forgot to upload them.

2015 Pikes Peak Hill Climb 2015 Pikes Peak Hill Climb

Hey all! I realize I haven’t been active lately, but what’s a better way to come back than with a photo-dump from Pikes Peak this year? Some of the pictures and videos are blurry because they were taken with my phone and its camera has been acting weird the past few weeks. I watched from Cove Creek for those…

Jaguar F-Type with 6,000 miles for sale for $57,000, about $20,000 under MSRP. My wallet can't handle this.

Stuck at the Airport... Stuck at the Airport...

....with a 4 hour delay due to low ceiling and snow (I'm in Denver right now). Flight won't leave until 3:41 am. I'll be spending the time watching Super GT races as long as my laptops battery stays charged, unless I find a power outlet :]. Super GT is a great series by the way. Have a RC-F:

I found this gem in the dealer comments for a Chevrolet SS listing.

Fake Badges are Terrible Things Fake Badges are Terrible Things

I hadn't seen many cars with fake badges lately (i.e. AMG badges on C250s), but alas, there are many out there.

Short Notice F1 GP Adventure: Day 1 Short Notice F1 GP Adventure: Day 1

Woke up this morning with the intentions of leaving for Austin early and I found tickets at turn 4 still available. I bought them right away and left at 9:00 due to rescheduling stuff going on this weekend.

Crazy Turn of Events, I'm Probably Going to COTA Sunday. Crazy Turn of Events, I'm Probably Going to COTA Sunday.

I honestly am in shock right now. I was watching the replay of FP2 with my mom and I mentioned that there are still tickets available. All of a sudden, she wants to go. Austin is about 14 hours away, so we could make it in time if we left tomorrow morning. I'm looking on eBay there is a good deal on four, but we only…

I was bored this afternoon, so I went for a little drive and took some pictures of my car! Pretty sunset is pretty.

It's happened Oppo. I have full on caught the Porsche bug (pun not intended). A relative bought a 911SC a few years ago and recently started sending me LOTS of emails about how great they are and why I should get one.
