Recently I spent two weeks on the other crust of our Great American Sammich. The first week was spent in Connecticut performing a fuel economy test. The most interesting part of that week was probably the abandoned insane asylum. Not car related, but creepier than finding Pee Wee Herman hiding behind your shower curtain/

The next week I was in NYC for the New York International Auto Show. As always, all the manufacturers put on a big show and bragged about how they were the leader in sales of three wheeled hybrid crossovers marketed to women with degrees in expressive dance and an income of greater than $37,923!!! Apparently the NYC suit wearers can be impressed by such statistics, and subsequently, stock prices rise. Or not. In any case, the free food at this show wasn't as good as Detroit, so I was pretty bummed by that. Oh yeah, there were cars there too. We like those, so I'll show you some.
|I think I've posted the FT-1 before, but it really caught my eye this time. It's far better in person than in pictures.|
|The Alfa Romeo 4C is a pure sports car.|
|Even the pedals have a far different feel than your everyday production car.|
Machined out of billet aluminum, they have a genuine "race" feel.

It has a fantastic bootay.

flying kites in thunderstorms to see the auto show.
After returning from the auto show, I went to Utah for my brother's wedding. I don't have anything car related from that, but I do have a cool video. My sister-in-law said she wanted to toss her bouquet in a more impressive manner than is normally done, so dutifully I offered my services.
Finally, I something that relates to Grace. I decided it had been way too long since I had started up the old green Ranger and warmed up the engine. I stuck my GoPro on the side to record the exhaust sound for posterity, because things will change drastically for the old Ranger once I take the engine out to give to Grace. It's got a pretty deep tone for a 4 popper. Have a listen, you may need to turn it up.
