I will organize my garage. I know when most people look at my garage they utter complements on how organized it is, but I really need to re-think how I have things placed on the shelving I put in a couple of years ago.
I will help my niece pick out a new car. She has an older Volvo and is frustrated with the amount of repairs that go along with a five year old Swedish car. I asked her to put together a list of things that she would like to have in her new vehicle. After reviewing the list it looks like Mazda’s CX-7. It has a 2.3 litre turbocharged engine and is offered in AWD. It has one of the best crash ratings (although I feel driving skills are a big part of accident avoidance). I just wish the warranty was on par with Mitsubishi’s.
Get to the Tail of the Dragon. I went with 14 other Evolution owners back in October of 2005 and had a great time. I spent two days of driving the eleven mile stretch of 318 turns on a two-lane mountain road. It is beautiful country and a driver’s road.
Do research on an electric powered AWD race/rally car. After watching ” Who Killed the Electric Car” and seeing what the potential is for electronic control of power distribution I owe it to myself to do some more investigation.
Get to VIR. It has been a year and I really should spend some time at Virginia International Raceway. It is relatively close and has some of the best HPDE driving on the planet.
