Feels Like Moon Walking On The Freeway

So I had my new Eaton Posi, 3.73 gears, and axles installed recently. One thing that has to be done is a break in period for several hundred miles, and to drive at a varying speed and not exceed 70 MPH. So I have been doing just that man it’s rough rolling in the slow lane going between 55-65 mph. I choose 3.73 gears since they are more freeway friendly. So glad I didn’t go for 4.11 or 4.56 gears, fun on the street not so much on the freeway.

Almost logged my 250-300 miles on the Odometer for the break in, till then I cruise along the freeway driving at my modest speed. The tach reads 3500 RPM the supercharger is whining and I’m getting 7 1/2 miles to the gallon. Just glad to be out enjoying the road in my car.


Freeway Fotos – The Series

i drive a lot. 130 miles round trip everyday. my carbon footprint is massive. i am sorry for that. but i had this idea. it came to me after i saw this on my way home one day…


first off, i was kind of impressed with my photog skillz taking this thru the passenger window while i was driving in rush hour traffic on the 210w. and with my bb bold 2 megapixel. the second thing i thought of was man, what a great way to pass the time on my commute. and last, of course, i thought my friends at the double d would like it. so here we go…

i went out to dinner on saturday. to phoenix. i live in northridge ca, so it was about 6 hours to get to the restaurant. but it was for my primos 50th, so what the hell. and on the way, i saw this motoring on the 10 east…


what the hell was that? it looked kind of citroen-ish, but the size of a mini cooper. it was wierd, but fun.


nah, i couldn’t have planned that maricopa county sign in there – just dumb luck.

well, after dinner, we stayed overnight in a motel. it was a little wierd, the motel, kind of like a motel 6 but cooler. checking out in the am, we saw this beautiful caddy in the parking lot:


sweeeeeeeeeet. before we hit the road again, i was on the lookout for a bagel. couldn’t find one, but saw this on the road…


now i like old porsches, so i shot it. and the wife, who had been tolerant up to this point, is starting to get annoyed. but we find a place to get a coffee and a muffin, and after a long wait in line, and a screwed up order, we walk outside and see this:


we had walked straight into a porsche club gathering – sure enough, the car we saw on the road was there, and about 30 of his friends…



and that was about it. we hit the road, saw a crapload of dune buggies that i couldn’t get good pics of, but had a nice road trip never-the-less. before we got home, though, we were in the san fernando valley, and strolled into some historic house they were selling for 2,000,000. sorry – we ain’t buying. but i did love the car they had parked out front…


and that’s how we started the series freeway fotos. can’t wait for the NEXT installment. enjoy.
