Rehabilitated Carburation

Projects, projects, projects… Between the GT6, the GT-Four, the CB360T and trying to keep the Lancer in half decent repair, I find myself struggling to stay afloat. This seemingly unmanageable workload becomes consuming as you have several dormant vehicles you’re not enjoying, all collecting dust at an alarming rate. As discussed in earlier posts, scheduling…

Bronte Creek 2019

Back in September, I volunteered to shoot British Car Day 2019 at Bronte Creek Provincial Park for the Toronto Triumph Club. This annual event hosts the best of the best of British cars throughout Ontario and the surrounding area, naturally peaking my interest. While it will be a couple years before I will be able…

Spring Fling

It’s a beautiful Saturday morning; the kitchen is illuminated by the rising sun, the aroma of freshly ground coffee beans fills the air and bacon fat sputters atop a sizzling frying pan. As the elixir of caffeine starts to filter through my veins, the excitement for the latter half of our morning beings to grow;…

Loose Screws

It always seemed like a pipe dream, something that was frequently discussed around the family dinner table but never within realistic reach. Fantasies of wild projects, weekend barbecues, late caffeine infused nights, 5S and family bonding echoed through my parents kitchen over coffee and dessert. More recently however, an opportunity presented itself which allowed this…

Packing It In

I’ve talked about it before, it’s nothing new. Target project completion dates continue to be chased but are often left unfulfilled, I remain to be my own worst enemy in this recurring theme of sluggish progression. Still though, my perspective with respect to the importance of effective project planning is left unchanged; you can’t meet…

The Power of the Miata

There’s something special about a medium which has the power to unite a vast diversity of individuals together; young and old, male and female, any and every ethnic background. Even more special is when the same medium brings these people together in a positive and ecstatic environment, sharing nothing but smiles, stories and ultimately, the…

CIAS 2019 – The Media Day Experience

It started early in the morning. The alarm clock screaming, the clumsy tremble out of bed, the half-asleep terminator pose shower, the snot rockets, the excessive petting of the loudmouth animals and the all too well known struggle to find a pant leg without tripping over my own unkempt toenails. Although the day started with…

Street Car Logic

As I grow older (yes, I realize I’m still young), the more I learn how valuable of a resource time is. No matter how many hours a day I choose to caffeinate myself for, there never seems to be enough time to accomplish everything on my to do list. Eliminating distractions helps, but downtime is…

Now, where were we?

More than a fair question to be asking considering the lack of presence over the past 10 months. Quite obviously I have dedicated nearly zero time to blogging during this time period but I promise you that the Triumph has not left my mind. First off, welcome to the new website! While Blogger has proved…
