Nera! Nera!

leave a comment »

Took my Dad’s Gallardo Nera out for a drive this morning with the wife before we started to pack. The car is extremely comfortable. The white and black leather, black stitching. The black suede ceiling panel. It gave me a little inspiration for the Supra to get that interior settled down. The Status Racing seats could use the treatment. But the car handles like it’s on rails on Motons! MOTONS! The car is insanely comfortable and drives like it’s stock. Despite the 1250AWHP and the Motons. It’s insanely comfortable, no creature comforts were given up. Nothing! God I would like cruise control in my Supra at some times.

Seattle’s Best!

leave a comment »

Right now Laline and I are at the parents’ place as I type this. We’re in the guest house, which is outside her koi pond and Japanese garden. Imagine that, a Viet Namese woman with a Japanese themed garden and finish. It may be a bit chilly here in Seattle, but she keeps the ponds at the proper temp year round. It’s nice to wake up and have this right outside. My Dad has really revolutionized this compound style house of his. He decided that due to the fact it rains here all year, he installed a gray water reclamation system. That basically takes the rain water, reclaims it, and now they wash their dishes, clothes, and shower with the reclaimed rain water. I think they may cook with it too.

Dad has a lot of toys here too. His Ford GT, the F430 Scuderia, and his Porsche comes in next week. He has the life I tell you.
