OMG

Posted 12-02-2007 at 10:50 PM by Christopher Ihara (Founder's Musings)

OMG. After driving the new GT-R that's about all I can say. OMG.

Believe every bit of hype you read about this car. It is phenomenal and I predict it will win many automotive awards in 2008. I would certainly hope that you all know me by now. After 13 years of running a Mustang site I'd say that qualifies me as a dyed in the wool American Iron fanatic does it not?

I tell you this now though, if I had $75,000 I would pass up everything else on the market for this...

Nissan GT-R trip Day 0/1

Posted 11-26-2007 at 04:34 PM by Christopher Ihara (Founder's Musings)

I am here in Japan finally. The trip over wasn't too bad, thank God for business class. Each seat was separated from the next by a partition and each seat had its own LCD TV. The seat itself had a footrest, or could recline either partially or fully so you could lay down. This was a godsend after having worked 2pm-10pm Friday, 6am-2pm Saturday and again 10pm-6am Saturday/Sunday, then it was off to the airport to arrive by 8am. It was a fairly busy day.

When we arrived I made...

Packing for my trip....

In order to be able to go on this trip to Japan I had to do some major shuffling on my schedule. I am scheduled to work 2pm-10pm till Saturday, and then 6am-2pm on Sunday. This weekend is considered a "75%" weekend, which requires 75% of all the people on staff to be working. Which means I couldn't take Sunday off. We are also required to wait 8 hours in between shifts before we can work again, with the exception being emergency call outs.

Countdown to Japan

Posted 11-22-2007 at 12:40 PM by Christopher Ihara (Founder's Musings)

Only a few more days until I leave for Japan!! I'm headed there to go and drive the new Nissan GT-R (formerly the Skyline GT-R). I will be trying to get as much video and still imagery as I can so that you all can have a virtual ride along.

I will also try to post on this blog during my travels. I am going to try to get the GPS tracking unit and webcam running too. So you can watch in realtime (or at least 30-second delay), unfortunately we'll be on the opposite side of the world...

First!!

I'm always trying to find a new features to add to the site and since I've been keeping a blog elsewhere, I thought I'd just start one here.

The upgrade went pretty smoothly so now I just have to add the links so everyone else can get to it.

I hope everyone likes it!
