day 1722 – petrol prices


it takes over ninety to fill up my shadow. the price to pay for one tank of gasoline is already way too high and there’s talk that it’s on the rise. i love my car and the flexibility of going to places anytime. there’s no way i’d give up driving, but doesn’t mean i’ll stop complaining about the high vancouver oil price. i don’t look forward to paying triple digits for on tank of gas

day 1226 – car ironing

image

thinking about car tires all day because of expected snowfall in the city and the new tire regulations up sea to sky highway. good thing both problems are resolved. one, by stacking some plates in my trunk to the add weight to my car. it might not be much, but should still make it more grounded and a bit less susceptible to skidding. the second, confirmed that my mom’s car tire meets the regulations to get up whistler

day 1098 – two series

image

welcoming my brother’s two series to the family. after saying goodbye to his mazda rx8 more than a month ago, i finally got a good close up view of his new car since he brought it home. the blue exterior is alright, but the┬áspanking new five spoke rims look really nice. looking at it reminds me that i need to change my car tires and rims after the summer season

day 991 – who’s this??

image

had no idea i could afford a tesla until today. tesla is one of those cars that i would like to test drive, but not one that i would put all my money in even if i had the money. still working towards that dream car of mine that remains to be so far out of reach. in the meantime, i can only drool about it and perhaps looking at the pictures may make myself work harder to close the gap

day 904 – parking skills

image

i know real estate in vancouver is expensive and tough to come by, but that’s one tight spot there. no wonder it’s one of the last spots left vacant and the amount of paint left on the columns says it all. i guess i could use this to my advantage because i trust my parking skills enough to take that spot. i never come here at this time of the day, but i also never expected this parkade to be so full at this hour

day 667 – milestone mileage

image

it’s with excitement i announce my shadow surpassed the 50000 mileage today. it’s taken me to a whole new level of smooth ride and i couldn’t have asked for anymore than what it has provided me. our relationship is approaching two years, feels like our bonding only began just yesterday. shadow is a true work horse working overtime all the time and still going strong to serve me day after day

day 374 – turn off already

image

what does this signal even mean?? already brought it into the service shop for annual car maintenance and very annoyed the light is still blinking every single start up. i must call into the service department to have them somehow to get rid of it, or maybe its time to change my brakes
