Exotics @ RTC Highlights & Lowlights Exotics @ RTC Highlights & Lowlights

Here are some neat cars from the first show of the season. I only really bothered to take pictures of particularly interesting, dumb, or weird things, so there are no Ferraris or Lamborghinis or 911 GT3s here, but take my word for it: there were many of them to be seen. Same goes for all the Nissan GT-Rs. I wish I had…

Saturday, May 5: it’s Derby Day, it’s Cinco de Mayo, and it looks like it’ll be the season opener for the weekly Exotics at Redmond Town Center show. Anyone interested in attending?

PNW Oppo Cruise Spring 2018 - Planning PNW Oppo Cruise Spring 2018 - Planning

Further updates (04/27). Since it appears that Spring is finally here in the PNW (we all know it could be pouring rain and dreary next week, but we have some hope now and I finally swapped to my summer tires), it’s time to select a date and route for our next cruise. Note that all posts in this series will be tagged “…

Foaming a Toolbox & Taping a Cat Foaming a Toolbox & Taping a Cat

I’ll write a longer post about the car detailing process. In short I foamed, clay barred, compounded, polished, and finally waxed it. I’m almost satisfied with the correction however the PNW has rained for 7 days so I haven’t seen it in the sun yet. I forgot to upload most of the pictures from the camera, so when I…

The Scenic Route - Chuckanut Road The Scenic Route - Chuckanut Road

I had reason to visit the far northwest of the northwest today, so I took the scenic route on the way back: the well-known Chuckanut Road, like Aesthetics in Motion did a couple of weeks ago except without really going out of my way. It’s a pretty two-lane state route that starts (at least if you’re going…

BC/Northern WA Oppo's - 2018 Automotive Calendar BC/Northern WA Oppo's - 2018 Automotive Calendar

Sorry to post twice in 20 minutes, but the Skoda Yeti had to be shown. Below is all of the automotive events happening in BC with some WA, OR and AB thrown in. Also, I’ve been using the #VancityOppo tag for posts about BC/Vancouver if you wanted to help out with that!

Paging Northern WA Oppo's Paging Northern WA Oppo's

I’m coming down to Lynden/Bellingham Monday. I know it’s short notice, but anybody around at all? I’m thinking Watcom & Northern Snomish County.

Master post. Every single home I’ve written about, all gathered up for you to peruse at your leisure. If you enjoy architecture, design, comment-section drama or even just learning about what it takes to be a successful window washer in the Seattle area, stop on by.

AestheticsInMotion's step-by-step guide to planning an epic adventure  AestheticsInMotion's step-by-step guide to planning an epic adventure 

Step One: Be spontaneous! Leaving for a three night camping trip at 7:00pm with no planning whatsoever COULD leave you stranded in a broken car without service in the middle of a pitch-black, bear-infested forest. It could also just as easily be the start of... Well, no. Wait. It’s exactly what I just said. Uhm. Guys?…

Hit-and-run right across from a house I was working at  Hit-and-run right across from a house I was working at 

People suck. Got the License # before the asshole got away. Called the cops, who showed up and said they should be able to nab him pretty quick. Sounds like prosecution would be a pretty cut and dry thing, mainly because a surveillance camera at one of the neighbors’ homes backs up what I saw.

Best of the PNW - Mt. Rainier adventure  Best of the PNW - Mt. Rainier adventure 

Mt. Rainier may have just become my new favorite overnight spot. And not just because a cop told me to “do some donuts” for him after chatting me up about the Miata. This place is almost overwhelming in it’s lush array of the PNW’s unique flavor of natural beauty.

In the interests of full disclosure, I feel the need to warn you that I’ve just gone through a pound of rootbeer fudge and as such my mind is on a different plane of existence from yours. I’m not sure if communication is possible under these circumstances, but I have to try. My message must be heard!

Exotics @ RTC Photos Exotics @ RTC Photos

Went to the Exotics @ RTC show this morning, where I saw many cool cars and a lot of people, but failed to meet up with any of the other Opponauts who went too. In addition to the veritable flood of Lambos, Ferraris, and Porsches, there were some rare and unique things there—I think my favorites were a Rauh-Welt…
