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…

Flange Design

With the power plant in its final resting position, it’s about time that the Triumph gets some tunnels to spit it’s maybe-one-day exhaust flames through. Since there are no off the shelf headers that exist for my vehicle configuration, I took on the project of designing my own exhaust flange as a start to the…

Restless

It’s been just over one month since my last post and so much has changed, the progress that has been achieved in such a short period of time is incredible. When I think about it, I really haven’t been at the shop that frequently. I’ve been pretty absent over the past two weeks, however it’s…

Emotion in Motion

Alright, Christmas break is over. I’ve pounded back hundreds of cookies, squares, macaroons, assorted meats and alcoholic beverages. Every day it was harder to breathe than the last and for some reason my workouts are getting more challenging… weird… Anyways, now that most of the running around is over, I’ve managed to make a little…

Seats and Cooling

I haven’t really done much physical work to the Triumph over the past month, save the past few days. However, behind the scenes I’ve been planning my steps at becoming closer to my goals. I’ve been looking heavily into wiring and exhaust components, as well as thinking about what’s the best way to tackle my…

Fuel

Work has been endless and literally non-stop. I’m seldom home and when I do manage to allocate some time to be home, it’s usually just to load up the coffee maker and make my lunch for the next day. To be honest, I’ve been a bit of a zombie for the past couple of months…
