Getting My NA Back Into Shape: Front Yard Body Shop
In case you are wondering where my 1990 NA6C Miata's been lately, it got
into a traffic accident on May 8th, when my Miata collided with a Land
Rover after I was cut off near an intersection. Damage was mainly limited
to the bodywork and a bent tie rod. I was found to be not at fault for the
accident by an insurance investigation. Unfortunately, the other driver's
insurance considered my Miata a total loss. However, to me, it isn't.
Since I already got my insurance check and I wanted to keep my Miata to
transform it into a real racing car, I'm saving money for the bodywork by
trying an old Spec Miata trick, wenching the body back into shape and
banging out the dents myself, along with help, of course.
Trinity Rd in my Miata, scaring my girlfriend
In my 1996 Miata going over Trinity Rd from Glen Ellen to Napa. Wanted to
test my Samsung TL220 camera with my Panavise 809 mount, the video is quite
shaky, need to work on that. Driven this road a lot, but went a little
quicker this time and my girlfriend got a little freaked out!

Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's
Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill,
Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go
spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC
shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it
running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a
50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic
over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and
explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Bad Driving Compilation
A collection of lane crossers and driving fails recorded on Mulholland Hwy
over the last 6 Months. Celica at end is same as one from beginning, he
crashed a couple turns after he passed me.
Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles has been a popular riding area for
motorcycles & fast cars for decades. Car and motorcycle clubs are regular
visitors every weekend. Jay Leno can often be found at the famous Rockstore
and at a view point called Lookout talking with fellow motor enthusiasts.
Crashes are common as well as a heavy police presence on most weekends. The
Snake is a two mile section of Mulholland above the Rockstore. Riders
usually will make multiple runs allowing me to move from corner to corner
when assembling rider videos. The speed limit is 45 mph, most riders are
not going much over that so the majority of tickets are crossing the line,
wheelies or equipment violations. Bicycles are up here all the time but
motorcycles and bikes seem to do fine together as long as the cyclists are
willing to stay to the right. Cars passing them are a bigger problem since
there is no shoulder and most turns are blind.
I mainly shoot on the last corner coming up because I can see much of the
road and photogs are expected. The turn gets it's fair share of crashes
but people crash other places also just no one is filming. The top corner I
shoot seem to average one crash every couple weeks in the summer, out of
many hundreds of riders. 911 emergency services are rarely called and
accidents are seldom reported since most riders do not get injured
severely. Google Street View - http://goo.gl/wsMi

PCMRC GMR Intermediate Race 20140824
My favourite race from yesterday, it was basically a rookie race, still
really sucky at my launches, and got stuck behind one of the bike and took
a couple laps to get past him. After that I was trying to keep up with Alex
and Elizabeth, I took advantage of them battling and got close to Eliz, but
4:45 I experienced my first fuel starvation, I was running on fumes! I held
on for another lap hoping to keep my 3rd place, but after a couple more
fuel starvation at 5:41 & 6:05, I knew I was not going to make it back, the
bike ended up shutting itself off as soon as I pull off. None the less, my
favourite race of the day by far! Thank you so much Mark Kruger (aka
Kramer) and Pacific Riding School!
