Keith’s Blog: The Afterglow of Monterey

The Monday after Classic Car Week in Monterey is strangely quiet. No herds of Lamborghini  Aventadors pushing their way through traffic. All the real Cobras are gone; you know if you see one today it’s a Tupperware special.

I’m staying on through Thursday, to participate in the BMW CCA annual convention, Oktoberfest. Wendie drove our tii tribute (i.e. replica) down for the event, and she and I will drive it home up Highway 1 and 101. I’ll be the Read More

Keith’s Blog: The Tii Gets Ready for Monterey

It was over a year ago that we persuaded SCMer Ned Scudder to part with his beloved Turkis-colored 1972 2002 tii. And on Wednesday, Wendie is planning to drive it from Portland to Monterey.

But the path from acquisition to “in service” hasn’t been easy or short. The car was fundamentally sound, with a fresh engine and paint, comfy seats from an E30 M3 and nice Minilite mags.

But the injection was problematic. The warm-up regulator was frozen, and it Read More

Alex’s Blog: The Mellow Rebel

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to test drive a Hyundai Elantra GT. That car far exceeded my expectations. When its rebel sister known as the Veloster showed up in the garage, I grabbed the keys and took a long lunch, which turned into a long weekend.

For $22,100, this Hyundai comes with a 201-hp 1.6-L twin-scroll turbocharged 4-cylinder. The price tag is attractive, but before I started daydreaming about paint colors, I had to put the car Read More

The Monte Shelton NW Classic: My First TSD

I asked SCM IT Specialist Brian Baker to represent us on this weekend’s Monte Shelton Northwest Classic Rally. Brian is a true gearhead with an appreciation for all things old and automotive, but his particular area of interest is modified Japanese cars. (His daily driver is a lowered Honda CRX, and he is in the process of restoring a 280Z.) This would be his first ever TSD, and he would pilot the GTV. Here is what he Read More
