What a day

leave a comment »

Saturday was a blast, the wife and I went and picked up Dad’s Scuderia from the shop he had it at. He went from Kreissieg level 3 to level five. It went from loud to Armageddon. Easiest way to sum it up really. I let the wife drive it on the way home, she got some fun out of it. When we got home, I climbed into Blackie and ventured onto Mulholland with her. She’s getting a hand at this driving thing. I might tell Dad we need the Scuderia for a little more. It’s got the right amount of power for her and it’s nimble enough for her. I trust her going in a straight line with the GTR, the power is a little much for her to turn in it.

With today being Independence Day, the wife have been relaxing around the house with our dogs.  I’m only up to make lunch for the wife. So I figured I would make a daily blog at the moment. Turkey, ham, and cheese sandwiches for lunch. A little bit of these Pringles I found, blazin’ buffalo wings, awesome flavor. Not hot, but still tasty. I’m going back to the living room with the wife.

Did it all at once

leave a comment »

We decided to drive straight through from Seattle to LA. The F430 Scuderia was incredibly loud while we were driving, even at cruising speed. I would have opened it up over the Golden Gate Bridge, but the surprisingly the wife had fallen asleep. It was a pretty nice drive. I don’t know if I could handle this car across country again though. It’s very rough, more rough than the Supra. Which will be in tomorrow and then Wednesday Laline and I leave AGAIN this time for Montreal. We’re going to the Formula 1 race with my parents. My Dad lucked with a certain team and we’ll be guests in their suite and pit box. I really can’t wait our first F1 race. I just wish Kimi was still racing, it would have been nice to meet him and talk to him.

It’s time for me to crash out, I had to carry the wife inside and our luggage too. Been a long day.

I know I know

I haven’t been writing too much lately. Just there’s been a lot going on here with my family and the wife. My Mom and I have been working on her koi pond. I should say lake, but I keep my mouth shut. I’m a good son, I respect my parents. The wife loves it here and it’s going to bum her out when leave Sunday morning.  We have our ear buds ready because the F430 Scuderia gets loud as hell when you open it up. Kriessieg level five here we come!

F60 and F10

leave a comment »

These two cars are absolutely my two favorite F1 cars in a long time. Even the new generation of F1 cars are my favorite. The bodies are clean, no wings and diffusers everywhere. Thin and tall spoilers, wide and short front diffusers. The cars are insane, but none of are as clean as the Ferrari F60 and F10. The deep red paint and that signature Ferrari sound. Love love love those red cars. Yes, I’m a Tifosi. Tifosi for life actually.

My Dad spec’d his F430 Scuderia to wear the trademark Scuderia Ferrari color. Which he actually modified the other day for the first time. He purchased the Quicksilver Titan Sports exhaust. Which sounds pretty nice from the couple videos he’s sent me. The car sounds amazing, almost like listening to F1 when you drive it. Maybe during the Summer, I’ll drive up there, or my parents will drive down to California.
