WordPress License Plates

I moved my “IM STIG” license plates over to my Dodge Viper so I had to get new plates for my Ford Mustang. What to get on my plates this time around seemed like an obvious choice! :)

WordPress License Plates

UPDATE: It looks like I’m the fifth sixth person to get WordPress license plates! Ryan Duff (Pennsylvania), Jonathan Dingman (California), Michael Torbert (North Carolina), AJ Morris (Michigan), and Jesse Friedman (Rhode Island) also have them. Awesome. :cool:

Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 2

You’ll love this video if you’re a gearhead:

It was filmed out in eastern Oregon and Washington! The awesome road in the video is Maryhill Loops Road which is closed to the public although it’s available for rent to car clubs and such.

Yesterday I Learned

Yesterday I learned that when my 2001 Ford Mustang is running, the key fob is disabled and will not let you lock or more importantly unlock the car doors. I started up the car in order to warm up the cabin, took the key fob off my keyring, and then locked the door behind me. I was only going to be a few car lengths away from it but I didn’t want anyone hopping in it and stealing it. This turned out to be a huge mistake. One call to AAA and 45 minutes of car idling later, they showed up to jimmy a door open for me so I could turn it off. :(

Interestingly my dad’s Ford Explorer, which is only a few years newer than my car and shares many common Ford parts, doesn’t do the same thing. It’s key fob works perfectly fine with the engine running. Hmm.

2001 Ford Mustang GT

After two months of driving a beater in order to get good at driving stick and better at driving in general, I’ve moved on to a significantly better car — a 2001 Ford Mustang GT. I picked it up last Saturday night and it has a 260 horsepower V8 with a 5 speed stick shift. It is amazingly fun to drive and is really quick (at least to me, heh).

More pictures can be found over in the thread I made on some forums I run.

Here’s some video I made using my GoPro. It looks like I’m going slower than I actually am due to the wide angle lens and because I have it mounted on the top of my windshield. ;)
