The Move

The move has been made, and this site is where is shall stay. Not updated, however, because I’ll be over working on Foxie & Carrera.

Please check out my new internet home, and subscribe to keep up with the new posts that will be starting in January.

If you have any questions please get in touch with me through Foxie & Carrera.

Thank you for the support from CarsxGirl. I couldn’t make this move without it, and I hope you’ll join me in my future endeavor.

Transitions….

Tags

, , , , , ,

It’s weird for me to put this out there, but its true…. The transition is coming.

This blog, as it is here, will no longer exist.

The skeleton will be moved to a new home on the Internet, where it will exist solely as an archive to what once was my blog. Well, still is…. Just not updated.

It will be left as it is. To be no more, really.

However, in one end there is a new beginning….. The beginning of my new blog that will be moved into the space this one occupies.

Foxie & Carrera is coming.

I’ve already decided to put my efforts into making it a high quality blog instead of my once-in-a-while hits here and there on this one.

That said, I will be updating my various other homes on the Internet in the mean time. I may even post a couple times here and there until then, since the official launch of my blog will be in January. I can’t hide for that long you know. ;)

However, there will be no more regular updates. Don’t expect much from me here. I do keep the Facebook page going, but I am also starting to work on the Foxie & Carrera Facebook page.

The future is looking very exciting…. Don’t you think? :)

Saturday’s Classics & Antiques

This past Saturday was a rather unique one…. We had NO previously scheduled car event. How crazy is that?!

So I took the liberty of planning on a few things that we normally don’t have time to do, since we tend to be busy….

We started off with cars, heading out to Cars & Coffee. Chilly morning meant a yummy Raspberry Cheesecake mocha for me from Starbucks! ;) There were TONS of Porsches in the show room…. In fact, they were all Porsches except for the Shelby Cobra!

There was more variety in the back, though, and I really liked this 240Z.

After Cars & Coffee, we headed out to a local farmers market to pick up grilling groceries. Definitely worth the stop, as we got some delicious local food! I wish we lived closer to one of these so we could go more often…

Once we picked up some food, we got to do something I’ve wanted to do, but haven’t gotten to before due to the busy Saturdays…. Visit the plethora of vintage & antiques stores along one particular street here.

We’re going to have to do it again, though, since we didn’t even make it to all of them! But it was a lot of fun, I think, and we came away with this!

This is a super cool Porsche book from 1980…. Four years before my 911 was born! It’s crazy to look at where the brand was and what people thought of it back then. There were two more books as well, maybe I’ll go back for them…. They were from the same years, roughly.

There is also one other awesome little piece I had passed on, but am hoping that by the time you’re reading this I have it in my possession….. Trust me, if I get it you will know. ;)

It was great to have a Saturday that was pretty open, since this Saturday we’re back to car shows, this time with the BMW Club! I’ll be invading with my 911, just because I can…. Hehe.

Hot Wheels in Millwood Park

Last Saturday, we packed up our Carrera for yet another car show and another attempt to win a trophy… Sadly, all my attempts thus far have been thwarted. But I will prevail. I think. I hope.

But that’s only a part of car shows, and if I was only in it for trophies I probably would have quit by now. I have more fun chatting with people, looking at what else came out and having the perfect excuse to lounge in the sun and do pretty much nothing for a good few hours.

I didn’t take as many photos as I normally do for some reason… Guess I wasn’t feeling it.

Looking ahead, this weekend is a very, very odd quiet one…. With no event on the schedule. Crazy. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with myself honestly.

And, in some other news, today I set things up for my future project…. My future Internet home. Unfortunately, this blog is on a timeline to where it will be moved and not updated, but saved for the archives. This is sad, but I feel it’s a necessary step. As much as I wanted a new brand & identity, I couldn’t figure out how to change this into that…. So this is how I figured I will make it work.

When the change happens exactly, I’m not sure. It could even wait until next year, since I want to have it all set up and perfect and ready to go with content. So I might just say I’m shooting for January 2014 and go with that.

In the mean time, I will still be updating here as I can, so don’t worry. I’m not disappearing for that long again any time soon! ;)

Isn’t She Lovely…?

I’m not always the happiest person in the world.

Shocking, I know, isn’t it?

Really, I’m not though. But Saturdays are my happy days. It means something fun. It means seeing old and/or new friends.

And, if I’m lucky, it means some time with my lovely girl….

It hasn’t been the easiest or kindest year ever to me, but this will always be the year that I found the Carrera of my dreams…

The one that is MY Carrera.

(Thankfully, I *am* getting to spend more time with her…. Car show tomorrow!)

I Love Instagram Video…

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve never had enough patience for a few things when it comes to blogging. Among them are editing photos and almost ANYTHING to do with videos.

I love a great video with a great edit, but it just wasn’t for me. It is insanely time consuming, if you didn’t know, and I just couldn’t handle it. So even though I have a GoPro, it’s not really used all that much.

But then, Instagram came out with a video feature. And I found out that it means pretty much anybody can make a quick 15 second video that looks like a beautiful edit that took forever…. But it takes minutes.

I finally got to play with the feature when I went to a gathering of Ferraris, plus two McLaren MP4-12C’s. I had a TON of fun doing it, too, and love the results!

I think you can finally expect to see some quick video clips from me…. It really is fun. Finally. ;)

That Crazy Life…

Soooooo I definitely owe some posts to this blog. And some explanations, haha. I didn’t mean to end up disappearing but I did.

June started off crazy hectic. We helped a couple of friends out at SOVREN, which was great fun. But one of our friends was in a pretty bad accident with his Formula Vee…. That was not fun. Thankfully he is doing alright, having only gotten a fractured vertebra in his neck, one in his back and a concussion. This led him to decide it was time to retire from racing — he’s 79, after all. (By the way, I want to be that active at the same age!!)

After that weekend, there was a morning of volunteering at the monthly track day….. And the track decided to claim another victim in the form of a large fire in my friend’s 911. Both he & his passenger got out okay. The 911…. Not so much. She’s getting put back together, though.

After all that excitement, we managed to enjoy another car show with our own 911 and also get the S2000 back from her differential mess. That was good.

But then more bad decided to like me and I ended up spending four days in the hospital the week after my 25th birthday. Lucky me, I had a very rare reaction to a medication I was on and spent an entire week rather sick, and only in the past week now have I really gotten over all of the symptoms.

Seriously, don’t take your health for granted.

After that mess it’s been hard to get back into things. Part of what I had was being very exhausted, and I wasted no time in getting back to work after having to miss four days. I feel like I’ve been trying to play catch up ever since.

There wasn’t really anything interesting until last weekend and this past weekend, since I’m finally really feeling up to things again…. So I’ll try to get things sorted out to share.

For now, I figured I’d post this up to serve as an explanation of my crazy past month and a half. I didn’t just ditch my blog, I swear!

And since I prefer to always post with a picture….. Here’s my pretty 911. ;)

Sorry for being so sporadic. Life has felt pretty hectic lately….

However, I do post often to Instagram when I’m out & about, so feel free to check me out on there!

I might upload a couple videos to YouTube as well, to try & share some of the wonderful sounds. :)

Eventually I should figure out how to keep up on event coverage!

Though I’m still contemplating a blog name change…. Hmmm…
