Here are some of the cool things I saw on the way to the September 2012 Caffeine and Octane car show, onboard my friend's 1997 Mazda Miata...
You can see us encounter a G37X sedan, a couple Mustangs with a Firebird, and a pack of BMWs... enjoy and stay tuned!
Miata wreck - Onboard and aftermath!
For my 1,000th video, I chose to upload something that isn't exactly
cheerful or celebratory, but it is something I wanted to share, something I
wanted to be able to look back on and reminisce about...
My friend and I were attacking a twisty road when we took a curve a bit too
fast and slid off the road into a ditch, damaging the control arm, strut,
pushing the frame back, and more! At the end of the day the damage wasn't
so bad, and we were able to hop out of the car after the incident, so we
can't complain about the outcome!
The car is in the process of being repaired now... Please, keep any
negative comments to yourself- it could happen to anyone!
Ali's Miata: Then and now
Here is a special video I made for my friend Ali, whose 1997 Mazda Miata
has come a long way from when he first got it...
When we first picked up the car, in 2010, the engine cylinders were rusted,
the body was beat up and the interior was a mess- there was obviously a lot
of work to do. Over the past couple of years the car has been upgraded and
refined little by little, and while it isn't anywhere near complete, it is
already an awesome car that is a ton of fun to be around!
Recently, Ali traveled overseas and I was lucky enough to keep the car for
him, so I made this video to show how dramatically the car has changed
since he first acquired it... there have been a lot of good times in this
Miata- here's to many more!
The first song is Cry Over you (Black Moon Mix) by Psychadelik Pedestrian:

Mazda Miata onboard drifting/donuts!!
I recently took a ride in my friend Ali's Miata to test out the great gift
he gave me: a camera mount! This is just what I needed to take my videos to
the next level, so HUGE thanks to Ali!!
In the video, you can see footage from both my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC H70
(mounted on the side window) and my CX-100 camcorder that I also took
along, as we mess around a bit in the Mazda...
More videos of Ali's Miata in action can be found here:
And, of course, photos of my new mount can be found on my blogger page...
Thanks for watching! What do you think of my new camera mount?

Bored one day so I thought I would make a video for the first time. Its
rough but I wasn't expecting much either. Didn't dust the car off so it
might look dirty. Enjoy in 1080p please.

Caffeine and Octane Sounds - August 5th, 2012
I filmed cars leaving the local Caffeine and Octane meet, in Alpharetta,
GA. It was a large meet and some were saying that 700-800 cars showed up.
Pretty awesome! There is a mix of clips in this video, from my GoPro 2 and
my T2i, because my T2i had died from filming something the day before.
